This is a budget friendly smartphone that we purchased on amazon a few months ago, made by the company blue this company specializes in both basic phones, meaning not smartphones. Those little kind of bar shaped devices with a little keypad which are becoming more and more obsolete, perhaps as everywhere one or lads a lot of people get smartphones if they didn’t have one already and also cheap and a little bit more high end smartphones. So this company really does have a good niche in that it makes phones that um are really targeted towards people who might want to purchase a phone for less than seventy dollars. They have quite a few of these, or maybe, if they like that company they’ll buy one of their more expensive smartphones that are 150 or more even more than 200. This is the company blue i’m, going to talk about this device. It’S called the blue c5l we’re. Just turning on the phone right now, so we are going to just review this phone after having used it for around two almost three months. Actually so the blue c5l we purchased for around sixty dollars, keep in mind there’s no they’re shipping and tax. We bought it from amazon, so it’s, maybe might be a little over sixty dollars that’s the price. I got it for i’m, not guaranteeing that you’re going to pay that price android power device and there really isn’t a whole lot. That i’d like to say, except that, if you’re buying these phones it’ll be really for the purpose of having a phone.
That is oh sorry about the lighting. I do apologize really for the purpose of having a phone that you didn’t spend that much money on. I don’t know why i’m sorry about the lighting i don’t know what’s uh what’s, going on here: okay, that’s a little bit better. These phones are not very expensive, especially the ones made by uh. The phones made by the company. Bloor are not very expensive. So if you want, if you buy one from a different company like motorola samsung uh, i don’t know emo motorola, samsung apple lg, um, they’re, nokia. There might be a lot of phones that start at at least 150 200 300 – maybe more dollars. But you can get one from this company for less than seventy dollars less than eighty dollars. You get the point less than a hundred dollars for a device, but keep in mind that you typically get what you pay for. When it comes to electronics. I will say that, more often than not, unless there’s some kind of huge sale. Yes, you can buy a nokia phone like the nokia 1.3 for around 100 or a little bit more than that which is not very expensive for a smartphone, considering all the things that they do. However, if you really are watching your budget, one and you want to pay really do want to pay less than a hundred dollars and two. The second thing is that it really is something that you’re only going to use mainly for calling and texting, but not really heavy app usage or heavy internet browsing things like that.
So if you really have a kind of cheap cell phone plan like red pocket, we have this pre paid red pocket plan, r e d, p, o c k, e t red pocket, some some one of those cheap plans or even in yeah. If it’s, one of those cheap plans where you don’t really want to use a lot of data, not a lot of heavy apps, not a lot of games – and you just mainly want it for calling here and there and some texting that’s, really something to a reason That you would get something specifically, that is one of the cheapest phones available, like the ones that are sold by this company blue it’s. If you really just want it mainly for some calls and texts in terms of performance, you can think of it. Like a computer, you can buy a 200 computer potentially or you can buy a 700 600 more 800 computer and what that simply means is there’s. I don’t really know a lot about this technical, these terms, better processors, hardware, etc performance. So if you’re going to play games, apps watching videos on the internet with your wireless internet youtube all those things and you want to just run very smoothly. No no lagging really just everything is everything is just runs really fast. Then i think the case will be that if you pay more money, then you will probably get a device that executes all of these things and these apps and the watching videos on the internet much better.
So if you really are not going to be using a lot of data, meaning not doing things on the internet, um and watching videos, things like that, you just want it for texting and calling that’s a reason to buy one of these phones. So what can i say about the actual device? After having said all of this? Who these phones are for? Really? This is a competent device um another one of my family members uses it but i’m reviewing it here. I will say that there have been times when i was speaking to the other person, my other family member who’s, using this phone uh when i was at work and they had this phone and there were some little blips in the call quality kind of here. Like i could hear some kind of artifacts some little some kind of thing, so what i’m trying to say is that overall, the call quality i like it very much. I think this is a competent phone for calling and texting just some very light internet browsing also. Some basic apps for a phone that was 60 dollars, plus tax that i got it for. I think this is an okay device and it’s really what you would expect from a smartphone that costs around 60 dollars before tax and shipping. It is one of the cheapest phones that you can get smartphones and it does its job. It has a basic camera. I mean most phones do nothing groundbreaking, but it does have your you can download some apps from the google play store.
It is an android device so for what it is, it does its job well, in my opinion, it has pretty good battery life. I find i have a few phones from made by this company and i have no complaints so far. I do like this product for what it is and because i don’t really need to do a lot of internet browsing and apps. So i i think this is a good product. That means that i do really appreciate that this company makes phones for less than seventy dollars i’m, not going to guarantee that you would like this product. This is not a recommendation to buy. This is just speaking of my own personal experience, it’s an android device that is cheap and, i think it’s fine for calling. If i was using this for work purposes, maybe i would want to find a device from a different manufacturer. Maybe nokia samsung motorola, maybe apple, that has, i guess, maybe even better call quality, but for what it is for what i use it for these phones, these blue, relatively cheap budget friendly smartphones, i think it’s an okay product again. This is all my personal opinion. It’S nice, that you can get a phone for less than seventy dollars and we did get this on amazon. So, if you’re interested in seeing what kind of phones are offered here, feel free to go on amazon search for blue phone blu, one thing i will say that, but i can’t really speak to this – is that you can find phones for around forty dollars or fifty Dollars, yes, i actually said forty dollars.
There might be, i think, there’s a couple of forty dollar phones from this company, maybe it’s best again. This is just i’m just theorizing here, maybe it’s best not to buy some the absolute cheapest one because it’s possible. If you buy a 40 phone uh an unlocked 40 phone, i mean keep in mind. The unlocked phones are more expensive and if you see an unlocked phone for 40, i don’t know maybe not maybe it’s going to perform uh worse than this phone, because this one is 60 it’s 40. But please read the reviews before you decide to buy anything again. You typically get what you pay for, but i think this is good value because i don’t use it for a lot of internet browsing and applications. So you can find phones really for all price ranges um, but how satisfied you will be with these devices really depends on your expectations.
