when it comes to smartphone, it is easy for consumers to get carried away and pay top dollars or bound to long customer agreement contract for those ‘high specs’ devices. lucky for the budget conscious folks, there are the BLU LIFE Series Android Phones that offers pretty good specifications without punching a massive hole in your wallet, or tied yourself down to any carrier for a long, arduous two years or so. and the best part of it? they are totally unlock so you don’t have to worry if your favorite carrier supports it or not. though available as three models, the BLU LIFE Series shares a common processor and that’s the 1.2GHz quad-core chip which comprises of a power-efficient ARM Cortex-A7 and PowerVR Series5XT GPU. the trio is powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean at launch and features advanced dual SIM with Dual Active functionality that allows users to seamlessly make and receive calls on two SIM cards at the same time. also common to the three are 1GB of RAM, and a microSD card slot that supports up to 32GB. the three models include the BLU LIFE One ($299), LIFE View ($299), and LIFE Play ($229).
