Blu's first metal phone is fun and cheap
This is the BLU VIVO 5. This is from a company you probably haven't heard too much about.
What's interesting about this phone, is that it is the first all-metal 1, from BLU.
This is BLUs first all-metal phone, which is interesting, because the product is very affordable, and you just don't usually see all-metal phones at this price point.
I also really enjoyed playing with the interface.
It's Android 5.1 not Android 6.0 at this moment.
But there are a lot of interesting transitions and quite a different layout that gives a little bit of flavor that you don't really see on a lot of the Android phones that are on the markets today.
There's a 13 megapixel camera on the back, which I also like, and a five megapixel on the front.
And I'm not sure how this performs because this is only my first time looking at it, but I am paying attention.
Blu also has another phone, the Vivo XL, which has pretty much the exact same specs and is the same size but it's made out of plastic instead of metal.
This one is even cheaper.
