Blu R1 HD

 

The Blu R1 HD is an unlocked Android phone with a good balance of performance for the $50 price, making it a fantastic value for Amazon Prime users and regular customers alike.

Inexpensive. Sturdy build. Solid battery life. Latest Android software. Dual SIM card slots and expandable storage.

Prime-subsidized phone includes Amazon bloatware and advertising. Lackluster camera.

Conclusions When I reviewed the $150 Blu Life One X, our previous Editors' Choice, it was hard to imagine a phone undercutting it without making huge sacrifices to build quality and performance. With the R1, Blu has managed to do just that. For the...

Blu R1 HD Review: Great for $50, with a Catch

 

The Blu R1 HD ($49 with Amazon Prime, $99 without) 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...

Superaffordable ; Sleek design ; Bright display ; Good battery life

Amazon ads are annoying ; Blurry camera ; Has trouble with graphic-intensive apps

The Blu R1 HD gives you a lot for just $50, including a bright 5-inch screen, sleek design and long-lasting battery, but this Amazon Prime special shows lots of ads.
