What I like about BLU Pure XR are the processor, 4GB RAM & 64GB Internal, which mean I can update and install apps without worry to delete caches or memory! I love the display of the screen, where the screen can be seen on any angles. This is because of the AMOLED curved display. You know it always happen where we cannot see our phone screen in certain angles, right?

Besides about the gadget, let’s talk about food. They served a refreshment after the presentation. They served pasta, samosa, Nachos, dark chocolate cake, mushroom soup and bruschetta. For drink, they served Virgin Lemonade Mojito. My favorite? Mushroom soup! 🙂 Unfortunately I didn’t take the photo of my food since I went there alone and was out of hands.
