Blu R1 Plus review

 

The most affordable Android phone we've ever tested

Incredibly affordable price ; Sizable 4,000mAh battery ; Camera is better than expected

3D game performance is terrible ; Doesn’t work on Verizon or Sprint ; Android Marshmallow is now dated

The Blu R1 Plus is the 2017 sequel to one of the cheapest Android phones on Amazon, and it’s back: faster, sturdier and longer lasting than before. At $159 it has a completely adequate HD display, metal finish and long battery life. Just don’t expect...

Affordable price ; Large, 5.5-inch screen ; Not bloated with unnecessary apps ; Decent rear camera for a budget phone ; Very good battery life

Not available for CDMA networks like Verizon or Sprint ; Subpar performance ; Runs older version of Android

This Blu R1 Plus offers a big screen and decent camera along with better-than-average battery life for a cheap price.

Review: Blu R1 Plus

 

Blu is back with another Android handset for U.S. consumers who prefer the unlocked life. The Blu R1 Plus packs a big screen and an even bigger battery. You can opt to use the phone on AT&T or T-Mobile, with support for up to two phone numbers thanks...

The Blu R1 Plus is a mediocre handset with only a few truly redeeming qualities. If all you want is an unlocked phone with a big screen and killer battery life, then perhaps you'll be happy with the R1 Plus. I generally want more from my phone, which...
