Here's what a $150, big-screen Android phone looks like

 

The big Blu Vivo XL is all about the cost-to-size ratio.

In the case of the Vivo XL, cost matters more than the performance, but the specs are higher than they could be for a phone at this cost. It's very similar to the all-metal Vivo 5, but has a smaller internal memory bank and is made with plastic...

BLU Vivo XL Review

 

A breakout year for the company, Miami-based BLU left its mark in the mobile space throughout 2015, but 'it's wasting no time in directing its momentum. In fact, it announced not one, but two new affordably priced smartphones that don't sacrifice in...

Attractive design for a $149 priced phone ; Sleek construction ; Lightweight feel ; Good battery life ; Tons of shooting modes with the camera ; Some useful software features

Weak screen brightness makes it unusable in direct sun ; Below average camera performance ; Extremely choppy gaming performance

A lot can be surmised about a phone under the $150 range, just because most people are inclined to believe that compromises are made in order to reach such a low cost. Well, for starters, the BLU Vivo XL doesn't look like a $150 phone, but rather, one...

BLU Vivo XL review

 

Introduced last month at CES, what does the latest budget-friendly offering from BLU bring to the table? We find out, in this in-depth review of the BLU Vivo XL!

Nearly full US 4G LTE Support (with band 12) ; Wonderful battery life ; AMOLED display offers punchy and saturated colors ; Nice design ; Software is an improvement over previous implementations ; USB Type-C charging port

Camera is mediocre ; 720p is a notably low resolution for the display, even for the price ; Occasional performance hiccups

It's AMOLED display, 4G LTE support, and excellent battery life are all great reasons to buy the BLU Vivo XL, with its impressive $149 ($99 for a limited time) price point more than making up for any flaws the device may have.

Great phone Great Price

 

I ordered this phone a few weeks ago for a couple of reasons. We are moving to Africa in the next couple of months and I needed a new phone as my old phone was way past it's usefulness date but I didn't want to sign up for a new 2 year contract. Also,...

Great phone for the price.

 

Nice phone for the price. People actually thought I was carrying an IPhone. High resolution and sharp, everything is functional well. Phone is thin and light weight.

Best Bang for the buck for 5.5 phone.

 

BLU has been coming out with better and better phones lately. The XL is a prime example. For a large phone it is incredibly light, but feels good in the hand. The Amoled screen, while not the most color accurate is very bright and saturated, images...
