This CPU can be fast enough for basic phone operations. The Dash JR 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||3.5 inch|
|Resolution||320 x 480 px|
The 3.5 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 Dash JR is multitouch capable. Multitouch technology enables the device's touchscreen to detect and interpret multiple touch points on the screen simultaneously.
|Internal storage||512 MB|
|Memory card slot||microSD|
256 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. The amount of RAM needed for optimal performance depends on factors such as the operating system, the apps and services you use, and how you use your device. 32 GB of internal storage is generally considered to be the minimum amount of storage you would want in a smartphone. The Dash JR has only 512 MB of internal storage. The internal storage of the Dash JR (512 MB) can be expanded with a compatible microSD card. MicroSD cards are popular because they're small, lightweight, and easy to use.

The Dash JR 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 Dash JR 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. Dash JR is equipped with a basic camera setup, and it does not have any advanced features. Basic camera setups are designed to fulfill the needs of users who prioritize affordability and basic photography requirements.

The BLU Dash JR 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. The Dash JR supports the latest Bluetooth standards, which offers faster data transfer speeds, better range, and improved reliability compared to previous versions of Bluetooth.
This phone has a built-in GPS. GPS is a highly accurate navigation system using signals from satellites to determine a location on the Earth's surface, irrespective of weather conditions. Most phones have a GPS unit on board. The Dash JR 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 Dash JR phone has built-in FM radio. During emergencies or natural disasters when cellular networks may be congested or disrupted, FM radio can provide a reliable source of information and emergency alerts.
