BLU Vivo XL

The BLU Vivo XL is retailed at $150 and packs a punch for a cheaper phone. It was released the first week of February 2016. It's the cheaper version between the two new editions to the Vivo Series. The XL is an Unlocked GSM Phone so you can activate the phone with a wide range of characters (such as T. Mobile, Sprint, Metro PCS, etc…) and not to mention the phone is aesthetically engineered with a flawless liquid metal finish that comes in different colors (Solid Gold, Chrome Silver, Midnight Blue, and Liquid Pink). The device is equipped with Optical Performance plus PDAF Technology with Blue Lens. It has a 13 Megapixel back camera and a 5 Megapixel front camera. The phone has a 5.5 inch Super Vivid HD Amoled screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It has a 1.3 Ghz Octa Core Processor powered by MediaTek, comes already with 16GB internal storage and you can expand the storage by adding a SD card up to 64GB. It has 2GB of RAM for efficient app memory and it has 3150 MAH Lithium Ion battery and a USB Type C charging port for a faster and longer charge. The BLU Vivo XL is a real head turner.

BLU Vivo 5

The BLU Vivo 5 is the more “high ended” version between the two new editions. It was released shortly after the BLU Vivo XL. The Vivo 5 is retailed at $200 and has a little bit more for the extra $50. The 5 is an Unlocked GSM Phone as well so you can activate the phone with a wide range of characters and the phone is aesthetically engineered with a flawless full metal finish rather than a liquid finish with only two colors (Chic Gold and Liquid Silver). The device is equipped with Optical Performance plus PDAF Technology with Blue Lens just like the Vivo XL and It has a 13 Megapixel back camera and a 5 Megapixel front camera too. The phone has a 5.5 inch Super Vivid HD Amoled screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and It has a 1.3 Ghz Octa Core Processor powered by MediaTek also. The 5 comes with 32GB internal storage (16GB more than the XL) and you can expand the storage by adding a SD card up to 64GB. It has 3GB of RAM for efficient app memory (1 RAM more than the XL) and it has 3150 MAH Lithium Ion battery and a USB Type C charging port as well. The BLU Vivo 5 is a real game changer in my eyes.
