Thiis time, we explore and compare two BLU smartphones? As far as I can tell, they are almost identical twins. But surely, there must be some similarities between them; right? We find out in our BLU VIVO X6 vs BLU Vivo XL5 comparison.
BLU products are mostly available and sold unlocked in the United States, and are compatibile with all GSM Networks, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, metro PCS, and others. Unfortunately, they cannot be used with CDMA carriers and networks like Verizon, Sprint and Boost mobile.
There is a striking resemblance between these two – waterdrop notch, thick bottom bezel/chin, and even the vertical camera bumps are almost exactly the same. How similar or different are they on the inside? It is time to find out.
Let’s draw up their quick specs in tabular format for a quick comparison.

BLU VIVO X6 vs BLU Vivo XL5: Where The XL5 Has The Edge
It is difficult to point out any areas in which the XL5 offers a better feature or implementation when compared to the X6.
It is valid that the XL5 has a bigger display, but that is quickly given up once you recall that it has a significantly lower resolution or pixel density.
We can also point out that BLU Vivo XL5 costs less. That is an advantage, surely.
BLU VIVO X6 vs BLU Vivo XL5: Where the X6 Has The Edge
The higher screen pixel density is a key benefit that the BLU Vivo X6 has against the Vivo XL5. Beyond that almost everything else is similar between them.
Also, while they both have a 4000mAh battery, the Vivo X6 has 10W fast charging, which the XL5 lacks.
BLU VIVO X6 vs BLU Vivo XL5: The Verdict
In every other way, they share similar specs – software, cameras, batteries, and storage, among others. As fas as I am concerned, that 10W fast charging gives the Vivo X6 an edge. 10W fast charging isn’t that fast, but I will take it over regular charging.
If I had to pick, BLU Vivo X6 would be my choice. The package is just better all-round and the price difference between them is too narrow to not pick the more capable device. Which of the two that you opt for is your choice. Happy shopping!
