A low-end, budget-friendly phone that offers a vanilla Android experience

BLU Advance 5.0

from Tom's Guide
The BLU Advance 5.0 shows that $60 can take you places, but those places are often bumpy, with problems to follow. Many praise its lack of bloatware, pure Android experience, budget-friendly price tag and ability to run games with relative ease... Full review

A $60 Amazon phone that’s way better than Amazon’s actual phone

BLU R1 HD

from Ars Technica
BLU’s R1 HD should only really be on the table if you’re trying to buy the most phone you can for the least amount of money. Other phones are faster and have better cameras and receive updates more consistently. But it’s a solid bargain even at its non-Amazon price of $100 (or $110 for the 2GB version I’d strongly recommend)... Full review

Helping redefine the budget smartphone

BLU R1 HD

from Android Authority
This phone gets a lot right, with a solid design and build quality, decent performance, a clean software package, and an unbeatable price point. The camera experience is a bit of a let down, and the ads, if you go for the Prime version, can get annoying, but at this price, these are understandable compromises to make. If you are looking for a good option on a budget, the BLU R1 HD should definitely be considered... Full review

Insanely cheap for what it does

BLU R1 HD

from Wired
This is the phone for when you break your real phone and need to fill the gap until you’re ready for a true upgrade. This is the phone you get if you feel like your life would benefit from a second smartphone but don’t want to commit to the idea. Better still, this is the phone you don’t get, but use as a baseline for how inconceivably good and how cheap smartphones have gotten. The Blu R1 HD isn’t better than anything. But it’s still plenty good... Full review

A decent smartphone for as low a price as possible

BLU R1 HD

from Tom's Guide
The Blu R1 HD is certainly affordable, but that doesn't necessarily make it a bargain. The phone's design, display and battery life are satisfactory for a low-cost device, but its weak camera and inability to run graphically demanding apps serve as a constant reminder that this is a budget option...

A fantastic price point overshadows its flaws

BLU Vivo XL

from Android Authority
The Vivo XL may have its issues low-end processing package, and mediocre camera. The device does also get a lot right though, with AMOLED technology more than making up for the low resolution, its excellent battery life, and the fact that users will have access to the 4G LTE networks in the US, which are all great reasons to pick up this budget-friendly phone...

So if I open an app up it would not open would push the back button and nothing would happen. Then get a message that say's app is not responding. Then try to reboot or power off it wouldn't do either. At the moment I can't even check my voice mail. Call from a different phone and it ring one time then silences.The phone is nice just wish that the phone did not freeze up for the 2nd time. Once in the begin of the month of and now towards the end.
