BLU is a smartphone manufacturing company based in Florida. You might have seen a lot of suggestions regarding this company on Amazon. Well if you are not familiar. BLU specializes in making affordable smartphones, with good built quality.
The trend of market have shifted in these past few years. Where companies are offering cheap phones with a good overall package, same goes for the new BLU R1 HD smartphone. What’s special about this smartphone is its price. The smartphone is priced at $100 for the 8GB version, while for the 16GB version, buyers would only have to pay $10 more. That’s not the only exciting part, because if you are an Amazon Prime member. Then there is a 50% discount for you as well. If you are willing to get the same phone filled with Amazon ads. Let’s just say that even the lock screen would be filled with ads.
For a smartphone that only costs $100. BLU R1 HD is built very well. With a mental frame while the backside of the phone is made from poly-carbonate. Giving the phone a good grip and feel. BLU R1 HD is also equipped with a 5.2 inch display that support a resolution of 1280 x 720, MediaTek quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1 GB RAM with 8 GB ROM or 2 GB RAM with 16 GB ROM and to power it all a 2500 mAh battery.
BLU R1 HD is also equipped with an 8 MP camera at the back, while a 5 MP camera at the front with 4G connectivity also on board. That sums up the hardware on the smartphone. The phone will also come with Android 6.0 out of the box. Considering some Samsung budget smartphones don’t even come with the latest Android software.
I would recommend BLU R1 HD for first time adopters of Android platform. Who really want to have a feel for the new OS before shifting to it.
