Android is closely integrated with various Google services, such as Google Maps, Gmail, and Google Drive, which makes it easy for users to access and manage their data across multiple devices. The BLU Advance 4.0 L has Mediatek MT6572 chipset. This CPU can be fast enough for basic phone operations.
The Advance 4.0 L utilizes Mali-400 MP1 GPU. A GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a specialized chip that is primarily designed to handle and accelerate the processing of graphics and visual data. It is responsible for rendering images, videos, and animations on a smartphone screen. ARM Mali GPUs are widely used in mobile devices and have a good reputation for performance and power efficiency. They offer competitive performance and power efficiency, making them suitable for a range of applications, including gaming, multimedia, and user interface rendering.
|Screen size||4 inch|
|Resolution||480 x 800 px|
The 4 inch phone comes with TFT display. A thin-film transistor (TFT) is a type of field-effect transistor that is usually used in a liquid crystal display (LCD). This type of display features a thin-film transistor for each individual pixel. In recent years, many smartphone manufacturers have moved towards using other display technologies, such as OLED and AMOLED, which offer some advantages over TFT.
Smaller smartphones are generally more compact and easier to handle. The size of the screen is measured diagonally, from corner to corner. A larger screen typically requires more power to illuminate, which can impact battery life. The display of BLU Advance 4.0 L is multitouch capable. Multitouch technology enables the device's touchscreen to detect and interpret multiple touch points on the screen simultaneously.
|Internal storage||4 GB|
|Memory card slot||microSD|
512 MB of RAM is not typically considered to be enough for a smartphone. Most smartphones today come with at least 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, and some high-end devices have even more. Having more RAM alone does not necessarily guarantee better performance, and other factors such as the processor and storage speed can also impact overall performance. 32 GB of internal storage is generally considered to be the minimum amount of storage you would want in a smartphone. The Advance 4.0 L has only 4 GB of internal storage. The internal storage of the Advance 4.0 L (4 GB) can be expanded with a compatible microSD card. A microSD card is a type of small, removable flash memory card used to store digital information.
|Main camera||2 MP, 1600 x 1200 px|
The Advance 4.0 L offers only a single-camera setup. The single camera can still be sufficient for many smartphone users, depending on their photography needs and preferences. The camera of the Advance 4.0 L has no autofocus capability (fixed-focus). An autofocus (or AF) optical system uses a sensor, a control system and a motor to focus on an automatically or manually selected point or area. Very few Android cameras come without autofocus. The Advance 4.0 L does not have optical image stabilization (OIS). OIS technology is more commonly found in higher-end smartphones and is designed to reduce camera shake and blur, resulting in sharper and clearer images and videos.
|GSM 2G bands||850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900|
|Network coverage||2G / 3G|
|Wi-Fi||Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n|
|Headphone||3.5 mm jack|
The BLU Advance 4.0 L supports 2G and 3G networks only. 3G is obsolete now, because most phones can use 4G and 5G networks. The BLU Advance 4.0 L like all modern smartphones, is capable of connecting to Wi-Fi networks. Wi-Fi networks use radio waves to transmit data between devices and a wireless access point, which is typically connected to a wired network and serves as a hub for wireless devices to connect to the internet or other networks.
With Bluetooth connectivity, you can connect your Advance 4.0 L smartphone to a wide range of Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, speakers, smartwatches, fitness trackers, and more. The Advance 4.0 L has a GPS receiver. GPS allows smartphones to determine their precise location and provide accurate navigation and mapping services. This includes turn-by-turn directions, real-time traffic updates, points of interest, and alternative routes.
The Advance 4.0 L isn't NFC (Near Field Communication) capable. NFC is not essential for basic phone functionality, but it can be useful for a variety of tasks and features. The Advance 4.0 L phone has built-in FM radio receiver. FM radio allows users to tune in to local radio stations and listen to live broadcasts, news, music, and other content. The Advance 4.0 L has a microUSB port. MicroUSB is a type of USB connector that was commonly used on older smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. The Advance 4.0 L smartphone has a 3.5 mm headphone jack. A 3.5 mm headphone jack is a small round port, that allows you to connect wired headphones or earphones to the device.
