Despite the serious troubles it had to face lately, BLU Products is a relentless brand that keeps bouncing back no matter what happens. While this brand's handsets did not blow up like Samsung's ill-fated Note 7, selling products with Chinese malware onboard and issuing an official phone-bricking OTA update are nearly as bad. The latest handset to come from this Miami-based US company is the MediaTek-powered BLU R2 Plus, which can be already purchased from Amazon and ships all over the world.

Just like its many siblings, the BLU R2 Plus is an unlocked dual-SIM Android smartphone that has an affordable (and quite outdated, we must add) MediaTek processor. In this case, BLU Products chose to go with the MediaTek MT6753, a 28 nm chip that has been released more than two years ago. Next to it, we can also find 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, a microSD slot, two 13 MP cameras (one in the front and one on the back, not a main dual setup), a fingerprint reader, as well as a 3,000 mAh battery.

The BLU R2 Plus comes with Android 7.0 Nougat onboard and has a 5.5-inch full HD display. It has a metal body and can be acquired for US$179.99. In the end, there is nothing special about it, and the only color choice available is black. However, it has a fair price and could draw the attention of some budget-conscious consumers, especially once it gets a discount.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
