The BLU R1 Plus recently launched, and now Amazon has added it to its Gold Box Deal of the Day, coming in at just $109. Typically this smartphone would come in at about $159, so that's a good $50 off of the device, just days after it was announced.
BLU is a pretty popular company for putting out cheap smartphones with some decent specs. The BLU R1 Plus is only compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T here in the US, so unfortunately it won't work for those on Sprint and Verizon. It has a 5.5-inch HD display with Corning's Gorilla Glass 3 on-board. It's powered by the MediaTek MT6737 processor, which is an octa-core chipset clocked at 1.3GHz. And that comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, with a micro SD card slot so you can expand that storage pretty easily. It is an LTE smartphone, so you'll get fast speeds on both T-Mobile and AT&T.
The BLU R1 Plus is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. If you are not a member of Amazon Prime, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial and take advantage of unlimited two-day shipping as well as the many other perks that Amazon Prime includes.
