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.

-app get root access without your permission -malware, virus, spyware, adware, and they are hard to remove because they change to system apps when they get root acess -Aosp developers dont care about mediatek because they dont want to release source code for their soc -they are not efficient and use older manufacturing technology, snapdragon phone with 2600mah can easly beat mediatek phone with 4000mah in battery life. -poor gpu and modems compare to qualcomm etc

The app gain root access because of MediaTek SOC? Please provide information. Any link? I am not a fan of MediaTek but i do own phone with it. No problem so far and no knowledge that hacker and malware could do that because Mediatek SOC. I do encounter phones that come with malware preinstalled. Its not Mediatek specific. One of them has a Snapdragon 650 in it. Luckily i am able to return the phone back to the store. We live in the mutual stages of smart phone much like Windows PCs. The only way to safe guide is though knowledge and taking precaution.
