Why Splurge When BLU Vivo XI And XI+ Costs Just $219.99 And Up?

It has been awhile since we look at BLU Products’ devices. We apologize for that. There are just way too many Android phones out there, but today, we felt compelled to let you in on BLU Products’ two new devices because, the duo makes Apple new iPhones’ pricing even more ridiculous. The two devices in question are the BLU Vivo XI+ (pronounced as Eleven Plus) and Vivo XI. The design on Vivo XI (and the XI+) is rather rudimentary (both shares the same design, btw). There is really nothing radical. That is not to say they are not eye-pleasing; they are. Just that these days, phones look pretty much alike and so, you know, there’s really nothing to talk about.

These cheeky folks really see opportunity, don’t they? Continue reading Xiaomi Poke Fun At New iPhones’ High Prices With XR, XS And XS Max Bundles
