Posted on Feb 24 2017 - 6:00pm by Brian Atkinson

Florida-based smartphone company BLU has launched yet another unlocked Android handset, the new BLU Life Max. The phone is now listed on Amazon for the price of $118.87, but as of this writing it’s showing as temporarily out of stock, although you can still purchase and Amazon will ship it out when it is available again.

Moving on to actual specs, the Life Max is far from being impressive, but that is not the point, is it? The main selling point of the phone, aside from the low price, is large 3,700 mAh battery, which is supposed to ‘make sure you never run out of battery in a single work day.’
