Friendly Notice: BLU Advance 4.0 is today's Amazon Goldbox special!

BLU is an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) who I've heard makes decent phones at incredible prices and today one of their lower end/priced devices is the Amazon Goldbox special of the day.

For $50 you can pick up the BLU Advance 4.0 (unlocked). It also comes in a black version.

I would love to tell you more about this phone or point you to a decent write-up on it, but I know almost nothing about it and I can't find a write-up on it from a site I'd normally trust and go to.


I can tell you it has a 4-inch display, uses a dual core Mediatek processor, has 512 MB of RAM and comes with 4 GB of built-in storage (but has a microSD card slot) and Android 4.2 (which is Jelly Bean).

Oh yeah, it's also a dual SIM capable phone. For those who care about that sort of thing.


Beyond that all I can say is that if you're in need of a really cheap backup phone or one to maybe give to a relative or friend who still hasn't made the jump to a smartphone then this definitely isn't a bad price to do that.

This deal expires today, so don't slack if you're inclined to get it.

And let me just reiterate, because I got into a discussion about this the last time I mentioned a special on a device, I am not saying go buy this phone. I am not saying this is the best phone on the market or for that price point. All I am saying is that this isn't a horrible phone at that price point. Use it to listen to music. Use it to play simple games. Give it to a friend or relative who still has an ancient flip phone. I don't know. Do whatever you want with it. Or don't. Since I don't know if you'll get it or not. My "job" here is to just share noteworthy Android related news as it comes my way. /end rant
