Burner phones aren’t you thing, we know, but stick with us for a second.
For $79.99, you could get a BLU Studio Selfie 3 off of Amazon. It’d have Android Marshmallow, a quad-core MediaTek processing with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of native storage, a 5-inch 720p display and a 2,200mAh battery. The top point here are the 8-megapixel cameras on the front and back. You can take it to AT&T or T-Mobile and see what you can do.
Or, you can get a ZTE Tempo X on Boost Mobile for $79.99. Same 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. The battery’s the same size. The screen’s actually worse at 480p. The cameras compare poorly. But there are a couple of advantages that are purely on optimization levels: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 and Android 7.1.1 Nougat. That Android Nougat’s a pretty clean version, too, and if you’re somewhat paranoid on BLU’s firmware security even after a recent controversy, it’s a better bite for your cash. It runs on the Sprint network — yes, we know that’s a killer, that line.
But if you’re still interested, the link to purchase is below.
