Blu Vivo 5 (Unlocked)

 

The Blu Vivo 5 is an attractive unlocked Android phone that offers good bang for your buck, but there are better options available for the price.

Affordable. Smooth performance. Attractive metal build. UBS-C port. Expandable storage.

Lacks important US LTE bands. Heavy custom UI layer.

Software and Conclusions The Vivo 5 ships running Android 5.1 Lollipop , but an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow is expected. As mentioned earlier, Blu has departed from other devices in its lineup by laying on a pretty thick UI layer here. The app...

The Blu Vivo 5 is the company's first aluminum unibody handset, and it comes in at a shockingly low price.

BLU Vivo 5 Review: Budget Devices Can Be Great

 

We in the tech press tend to feature the big names in smartphones when it comes to reviews… Samsung, LG, Motorola, Apple, HTC, you know, the usual suspects. It's rare that we review budget devices and up until recently that mostly had to do with the...

Price, $199.99 off contract. Design, aluminum unibody

Screen struggles in sunlight, capacitive buttons do not have back light

For $199.99 you're getting way more than what you're paying out. Yes, the BLU Vivo 5 has its issues, but those all melt away just knowing you actually own the device and aren't paying a monthly bill on it.

BLU Vivo 5 Review

 

By nature, phones under the $200 price point are expected to cut corners not only with the hardware on the inside, but especially in how they're designed on the outside. Miami-based BLU has been trying dearly to change this perception with its line of...

Attractive all-metal construction ; Sleek, mostly uniform construction ; Lightweight ; Low outright cost of $200 ; Above average battery life

Choppy graphics processing performance ; Weaker screen luminance makes it unusable in direct sun ; Underpowered internal speaker ; Custom Android experience isn’t for everyone

Slowly but surely, BLU has been gaining traction on the entry-level side of the US smartphone market, and the BLU Vivo 5, along with the Vivo XL, is a testament to how far the company's products have come. A year or so ago, BLU’s phones hardly drew...

Review: Blu Vivo 5

 

Blu is selling the Vivo 5 directly to consumers unlocked. This Android device is slim, attractive, and made from good materials. It boasts a big screen, solid camera, exceptional battery, and compatibility with AT&T and T-Mobile. Here is Phonescoop's...

The Vivo 5 smartphone from Blu isn't for everyone. It's an unlocked handset that's only being sold online. While there are a growing number of people who prefer to buy unlocked phones, the Vivo 5's limited support for AT&T and T-Mobile LTE causes me...

BLU Vivo 5 review

 

BLU's latest mid-ranger brings premium build quality and solid specs to the table, but is it enough to stand out in a sea of increasing competition? Join us as we find out.

Fantastic Metal Build ; Great Battery Life ; Amoled Display with saturated colors ; USB Type C Charging Port ; Affordable Price ; Average performance

720p display is too low for a 5.5 inch screen ; Software is heavily skinned ; Below average Camera

The BLU Vivo 5 offers by far, the best build design of any phone under $199. From it’s full metal build to it’s thinness and lightweight, the phone feels like it should cost a lot more. Although it isn't perfect, ultimately the BLU Vivo 5 is a...
