When the Blu Life 8 XL was first released, it was a great smartphone for the initial price of $79. Such low cost was only available during a promotional period, though. The cost later went up to $129.99 and we haven’t seen it drop… until today.

This is no initial promotion, but getting a Blu Life 8 XL for only $99.99 from Amazon will surely make things easier on your pocket. That would be $30 less than what the handset usually goes for.

Is the Blu Life 8 XL worth your hard-earned cash, though? At $130 it was getting too close to some very good competitors that offer a better experience, but for a Benjamin there’s not much to complain about here.

In terms of specifications we are looking at a 5.5-inch 720p display, a MediaTek MT6592 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, microSD support, an 8 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front shooter and a 2920 mAh battery.

Blu Life 8 XL review: really cheap, but that comes at a price

Is it a great phone? There surely are better (many), but you have to consider bang for buck here. You will be hard-pressed to find much better at $99.99. Read our full review to learn more about it. In a nutshell, our main complaints are the performance, poor camera quality and lack of 4G LTE.
