If you're in the market for a decent smartphone that won't put a sizeable dent in your pocket, look no further! B&H Photo Video has put up the unlocked North American variant of the BLU Pure XR at $179.99, which is a discount of $110 or nearly 48% off its regular price. Keep in mind that this version is carrier unlocked and should work with GSM telecoms, but carriers like Sprint, Verizon, and US Cellular aren't compatible.

The Pure XR fits right into the mid-range category, but for this price, its features are certainly not mediocre. Some of its most notable specs include an octa-core Helio P10 processor, a 3,000 mAh battery, as well as 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory (plus microSD support). 

Thanks to this chipset, BLU has been able to include a 16 MP main camera with HDR as well as phase detection autofocus with laser focus. There's also a secondary 8-megapixel camera in the front for selfies. Audiophiles will be pleased to know the smartphone features DTS Surround Sound Technology for the best audio experience.

On the outside, BLU Pure XR sports a decent 5.5-inch Super AMOLED full HD (1080p) display encompassed by an all-metal frame and back plate. There's also a fingerprint sensor embedded in the physical home button.

For comparison, one of its closest rivals, the Moto G4 Plus (4th Gen), boasts similar characteristics, but is currently being sold for $248.00 on Amazon ($68 more expensive).

Not a bad deal for less than $200, eh? If you're interested, the above link will lead you straight to B&H.

Just ordered the Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime with SD 625 and 4100 mAh battery for only $171, unbeatable compared to the Blu or Moto options.

You should search on google for online stores in your country. Or go to a Xiaomi store to buy one. A different electronics store might also have such a phone.

G5 has worse specs than this.

P10 = crap. Also it runs a heavy skin that the P10 can't even handle... among other things. Everything else sounds good but that processor ruins it imo

Yeah, the sd800 outperforms the p10, so I wouldn't touch this heap of junk.

Well, P10 is a mid-ranger; more comparable to a Snapdragon 616 and 617... 2 Quad-Core bigLITTLE 64-Bit Cortex-A53 clusters, anyone...?! Come-on...! Read the specs sheet before comparing it with the likes of Snapdragon 800 with the power hungry and antiquated 32-Bit Krait 400...! P10 is a 64-Bit SoC, my friend...! Oh well, G'Day!
