Editor's Choice

Expert review by : Ajay Kumar (pcmag.com)

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.

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.
