Samsung, LG, HTC, Google, and select others may attract most of the attention when it comes to Android devices, but they're far from the only choices. There is a wide range of handsets available from brands you may have forgotten about, but not because they aren't any good. BLU Products has been upping its game as of late, pushing out products with competent specs and great prices. Now the company is introducing several new models in its "Life" series of devices.
First things first, yes, BLU is still keeping the "One" brand here, something we're increasingly seeing everywhere. That aside, there's more to be irked by. "X" means that this handset has improved specs over the original Life One, whereas "M" represents a lower price. The One X will give you a 5-inch screen with a 1920x1080 resolution. It's packed with 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera, and either 16GB or 32GB of internal memory for just $299. The One M will get you a 720p 5-inch screen with a 12MP camera, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and a microSD card slot for $100 less.
These handsets are joined by the Play X and S. What these letters represent, I have no idea, but they are upgrades to the budget-friendly Life Play. The two devices are largely the same, but the X comes with more internal memory (16GB versus 4GB) and a slightly higher price tag ($219 versus $199). Both have microSD card slots.
BLU Products is rounding out its lineup with an 8-inch tablet, the View Tab. Like all of the devices listed here, it comes with Android 4.2, but many of its specs are less compelling. We're looking at a very unexciting 1024x768 screen, 1GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, and a 5MP camera.
To sweeten things further, BLU is also dropping the price of the original line of devices. The Life Play will now go for $199, while both the Life View and the One will go for $269. These devices will also be upgraded to Android 4.4 later this year.
