The new Blu is moving in the right direction. It trades in outdated designs for a more modern liquid look. The phone now matches similarly-priced phones with vital features such as an all-screen design, all-day battery life, and capable camera performance. The metal-and-glass hardware of the Vivo XI+ is the most attractive I've seen from Blu, even if the rear panel is still plastic.
