Some links in this blog post will be Affiliate links to Amazon for making money from reviewing the phone. This phone was paid by me and was not given to me for review. Using the amazon links will not cost you anything but a small commission for use of it will help me keep reviewing phones!
The Phone is Amazing!
I really can’t say anything but the truth. As soon as I got this phone I was thoroughly impressed with their dedication to the customers. Now to clarify the RCA A1 (Unlocked) was really good for the price but had some really big pitfalls. I will say after getting this phone, I didn’t know it came with a useful rubber gel phone cover to keep it from getting scratched. I however also while I was ordering this phone also order a good hard cover from For BLU Life View L110 Rugged Arched Hybrid Kickstand Phone Cover Case with Stylus Pen and ApexGears (TM) Phone Bag (Black Blue) (Amazon Affiliate Link) and XtremeGuardTM Full Body Screen Protector for BLU Life View (Ultra Clear) (Amazon Affiliate Link). Although I didn’t know they also had a rather good quality screen protector also come in the bundle with the phone itself. So you really do not need to buy all these to protect the Life View Blue Phone (Amazon Affiliate Link) but it does help!

It is big so it will take up more space in the pocket so you might want to consider finding a belt clip that would perfectly with this phone.
Good Phone for the Price
I will be talking more about the phone in the coming weeks but I thought it was a good idea to at least touch on the phone a little and tell people my impressions of the phone. Currently the phone is 240$ on Amazon so it isn’t anywhere a bad price. So far I’m really impressed with it and am liking the phone even though it is a little more bulkier than the RCA A1 but you get more display space and more stuff you can do with the phone!
On a side note, You can use the phone with Straight Talk and works just fine. You just need to follow the instructions that I have talked about in the past to do it!
