Today’s Deal – BLU VIVO 5 in Gold for $199

Today’s Deal over at Amazon is on the powerful but friendly priced BLU VIVO 5.  Right now the 5.5″ device with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage is down to $199.99 in either Gold or Silver.  BLU has made a name for themselves by having low cost devices that pack a fair amount of punch for the price.  The VIVO 5 is no different.  It is a full metal body design with a 5.5″ AMOLED display that gives you full HD quality, it has 3GB of RAM and has 32GB of storage built into it. You can expanded that up to an additional 64GB of storage (96GB total) thanks to the MicroSD slot in the chassis.  The phone is powered by the MediaTek 6753 processor which is a 1.3GHz octa-core processor so you should find it nicely responsive, especially coupled with the 3GB or RAM.

Connectivity wise, the BLU VIVO 5 works on GSM carriers here in the US.  Sorry Sprint & Verizon customers, this one won’t work for you.   It supports LTE bands 2/4/7 and HSPA+

bands 850/1700/1900/2100.

Finally, the VIVO 5 has been upgraded to Android Marshmallow although you probably shouldn’t expect Nougat to hit this device in the future.  If it does, its a bonus but don’t expect it.

The price on the BLU VIVO 5 is while supplies last and if you are looking for a solid performing phone at a budget friendly price, this is a good option to consider.
