BLU Vivo XL4
If you're looking for a nice cheap phone with all the latest trendy designs, so you don't feel left out, the BLU Vivo XL4 and it's big 6.2-inch screen (with a notch) is just for you.
BLU is a cheap phone brand that got in trouble a few years ago, but they're back in December 2018 with an all-new iPhone Xs clone that's under $200. In fact, this phone is under $150.
The BLU Vivo XL4 has a big 6.2-inch edge-to-edge 720p HD display with a notch at the top that houses dual front-facing speakers. You're also getting a somewhat premium all-metal design, dual rear cameras, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, Android 8 Oreo, and a massive 4,000 mAh battery. Yeah, it checks most of the boxes.
What's the catch? Well, they're using a MediaTek processor, but the newer Helio P22 AI chip with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, plus a microSD slot. The cameras on the back are 13 and 2MP, so the second one isn't doing much good. That said, at least you have the option.
This phone is unlocked and works on most GSM carriers and select others, and it comes in Black and Gold. Just know that while it's decent, you might not get timely software updates or updates at all.
