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.
