Blu Life Max launches in the US, offers long battery life for just $80 (limited time offer)
If you're looking for a cheap smartphone that's unlocked and offers generous battery life, you should check out the Blu Life Max.

First unveiled almost a moth ago, the Life Max was released earlier today via Best Buy. To celebrate the launch, Blu and Best Buy are taking $50 off the phone's price, which means you can currently get it for just $79.99. However, this price is valid only until Wednesday (January 18). After that, the handset will cost $129.99.

Running Android Marshmallow, the Blu Life Max sports a 5.5-inch 720p display, and packs a 3700 mAh battery - according to Blu, this battery can last up to 3 days "with standard usage." Other features include a fingerprint scanner on the back, a quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT6737 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable storage space. As for cameras, the smartphone has an 8 MP rear one, and a 5 MP front-facing one, both with LED flashes.

The Blu Life Max is a GSM/LTE device, which means it's compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, and other GSM carriers, but it will not work on Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular. You can purchase the handset from Best Buy via the source link below.
