    so im a little fed up with paying the huge overhead cost attached to mainstream phone manufacturers (ahem! samsung) because it does NOT cost anywhere near $700 to manufacture one of these things. soooo enter the florida based blu products. bought my wife a blu studio 5.0LTE and we have been using it for a month and the phone is spectacular. so much so that im thinking about getting a blu myself but i want to get some feedback first. based on your opinion what is the best blu for under $200 right now?

    The downside I see to them is most barely have enough storage for the Android OS, let alone anything else. I am honestly not sure what to suggest for devices under $200.

    no bloatware and external sd card. the wifes phone reads sd cards very VERY quickly and most all apps get installed to it. running out of internal memory doesnt seem like its going to be an issue

    The bloat issue can also depend on the device. My Moto X and Nexus had very little bloat on them. Once my M8 had an AOSP ROM flashed all the bloat was gone. The Studio has 8 GB, so that would make about 4 GB usable. That is far too little for what I use my devices for.

    As for the apps to the SD card, some of the data would go to the card, but not all of it.

    According to blu website, studio 5.0 lte has 5"qhd, s400, 4gb rom 1gb ram, ~$150


    http://www.bluproducts.com/index.php/studio-5-0-LTE

    In comparison, a Samsung Galaxy Avant has 4.5" qhd, s400 ,16gb rom, 1.5gb ram. ~$200



    I prefer to install all apps on internal memory myself, but to each his own.

    Strange...the link you posted is correct, but I looked at the list, and there was a rollover effect that showed some of the specs. That was how I got 8GB.

    A blu studio 5.0 lte costs ~$150. The Samsung Galaxy Avant runs $200 and is better spec'd except screen is a bit smaller. Comparing the blu studio 5.0 lte to a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 isn't really fair. One is a lower end phone, the other is the latest high end phone.
