The Energy X Plus houses an enormous 4000 mAh battery but still measures only 8mm thin.
The front touch panel matches the back of the device on the grey, gold and silver colors. There is also a matching electrolyzed finish on the front bezel.
Take control of your smartphone experience with the Energy X Plus and its powerful and long lasting 4000 mAh battery.
The Mediatek MT6582 1.3GHz Quad-core processor works harmoniously with the 1GB of RAM, so that you get an impeccable experience each and every time you use your Energy X Plus.

Dual Sim Card
By having two SIM slots in your mobile device, you do not have to worry about:
- Exchanging SIM Cards from one phone to another.
- Carry two phones in your pocket.
- Remember to charge two devices.
You deserve top notch picture quality and you will get just that with an 8 Megapixel main camera or the front 5 Megapixel selfie camera.
User Friendly UI
The User interface in the Energy X Plus makes it a pleasant experience. The applications that you know and love on Android were given a facelift and will be very easy to look at.
Your selfie camera is optimized with an incredible 5 megapixel camera and an 0V5670 sensor, that renders an 84 degree wide angle lens, so you and your entire crew will fit in the picture.
What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.
Top Customer Reviews
I was interested to note some reviewers going on about how the BLU Energy X Plus Smartphone is inferior to an iPhone. Some of this is due to differences in the Apple iOS and the Android OS, some of it the difference between a phone supplied with a generic Android interface and a phone supplied with an interface festooned with all kinds of add ons and extras. Of course an unlocked iPhone sells for four times as much as an unlocked BLU Energy X Plus Smartphone. On that basis the BLU Energy X Plus Smartphone is the clear winner for price sensitive buyers. I was also amused, and annoyed, to see a few reviewers take looking down the nose attitudes about the BLU Energy X Plus Smartphone while also promoting news of their own affluence by noting that they were insensitive to price and did not care whether or not they had to make two year extortion contracts to get an iPhone. Silly rich people, this phone is not made and marketed for you. It's for real people who have to pay bills and make budgets and split the difference between what they want and what they are able to spend.Read more ›
This phone gives freedom from obligation to any wireless/cell company on a new phone contract since this phone is unlocked and affordable to buy outright. Ready to go with your sim card, or if your current sim card won't work in this phone, AT&T or TMobile (GSM Carrier) will insert a sim card that fits as you keep your old phone plan. No new contracts, same service as your old phone. As someone who has felt held captive over the years of paying satellite, wifi, and phone 2 year contracts, I love that aspect! I am so thankful for a reviewer on here that pointed out that Verizon is CDMA carrier and Blu is Unlocked for GSM so Verizon wont work for this phone as this phone takes a SIM card.
The phone is very attractive and resembles the Samsung Galaxy phones and works on android. The home screen with apps is very clear and crisp and exciting. No cheap look here at all. The new 8.mp main camera takes very nice photos (I added some of my flowers.) a free app where you can play around and slenderize yourself, (gotta love that one, right?), enlarge features such as your eyes, lips, add graphics, (such as glasses), tweak colors and enhance, etc. Bluetooth works fine, conversations are clear, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest all load and work great, web searching/scrolling the screen is slightly slower, not the performance of an iPhone. The ear buds the phone comes with are terrible sound wise, albeit nice they are included as well as a silicone clear phone case. You will want to use your own.
However just a great budget minded phone that looks and acts like a very expensive Samsung or iPhone. No one would know you spent less than $200 on this phone.
The best things about the device are-
The screen is really fluid and responsive. You can get it to do what you want. Typing on it is great.
The speed of the unit. I loaded Clash of the Clans and it plays great on it. I also loaded Hill Climb Racing on it and it plays very smooth.
The Wifi and Bluetooth work great and have a nice long range.
The battery life is really good. I charged it when I first got it and used it heavily for 3 days before plugging it in. It was only at 43% so I had a lot of life left.
The only bad thing about it is the camera is not so hot. The pictures it takes are grainy even when waiting for the autofocus, which is very slow.
I loaded a SanDisk Ultra 64GB Ultra Micro SDXC UHS-I/Class 10 Card and it reformatted it and started using it right away.
Over all I really like this device. It is perfect for what I want to use it for.
The thing is, the sub-$130 phone I now have in my possession doesn't feel like a sacrifice. The look is eye-catching and sleek. I'm amazed at how thin it is. It has a nice weight in the hand. And where the device does cut corners, it's not as bad as you would think. The 720p screen is just fine to my eye. The quad-core mediatek processor isn't the greatest, but it holds up to music, games, watching YouTube videos, and most of the functions you would want to perform with your smartphone, with only the occasional stutter or lag. The storage space, while rather limited, can be expanded via MicroSD.
Then, there's what really blows me away. The 4,000 mAh battery! Especially considering the thin and elegant look of the phone, it's hard to believe there's so much battery packed in this device. I can use the phone, rather heavily, from morning till night, and still have 75% - 80% left.
I am beyond happy I got this for my replacement phone, and I would recommend it for anyone who wants a budget phone with premium good looks, decent specs, and amazing battery life. For the price, it's an absolute game-changer.
