Stop this madness. 768mb is not all usable ram. Half of it is reserved for this OS.

Maybe you can make calls and text

Android Authority says [androidauthority.com] - "Now you can only expect so much for a hair under $50 - which is about the price of dinner for two at many casual sit down restaurants in the U.S. - and so it goes without saying that the Advance 5.0 isn't an amazing phone. That said, it could be a great backup phone, a phone for a child or to give to an elderly parent, or just something to tinker with or transform into a cheap MP3 player."

Saw this from another dealio site, figured I'd share since it's a little lower than the other BLU phone deal.

From the listing:
Unlocked Dual SIM smartphone, with Android 5.1 Lollipop
Mediatek 6580 Quad Core 1.3 GHz Processor with arm Mali-400 GPU
5.0" IPS display: 5MP Main Camera with LED flash and 2MP Camera with LED flash
4GB Internal memory 768MB RAM Micro SD up to 64GB
GSM Quad band 4G HSPA+ (850/1700/1900): US compatibility Nationwide on all GSM Networks including AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, MetroPCS, Straight Talk, Pure Talk USA and others

Available in Black and White

My opinion:
Phone probably isn't great, but at this price, good 2nd phone or one for the kids.

Noticed something? Screen resolution is purposely not included in any of the specs on Amazon or the description of the product. I won't hunt for it, but it has to be pretty low for them not to mention it.
Pass. Not even 1GB RAM on this thing and the sale is only for $12 below regular retail price.

Thanks, just saw your link.

5" 480x854 (195ppi)
4GB Internal Memory

I guess it's OK screen but for 5" and 4GB internal memory, that's going to make it very difficult to have too many apps on this device. That's way way too low on board memory. Honestly, what are they recycling here, how much does it cost to add more internal memory? $1?

So what is wrong with repost? I am sure not everyone has seen it, and some of those who have not seen it may be interested in the product.
