T-Mobile USA introduces the REVVL Plus – a phone “heavy on features but light on the budget”. It definitely lives up to the second part, though we have our doubts about the first.
Soon you’ll be able to grab the phone with an 18-month Jump! on Demand lease for $9 a month (no downpayment). If you want to keep the device, you can pay $8 up front and then $8 a month for two years. That works out to $200. Light on the budget it is.
The REVVL Plus has a 6” screen with 1080p resolution, it’s old-school 16:9 in case you were wondering. And it has Gorilla Glass protection with beveled edges. Pretty good for this price.
The phone runs Android 7.x Nougat squeezed into 2GB of RAM (which is on the low side). The storage is better though, you get 32GB and a microSD slot. An unnamed octa-core chipset runs the show.
For $200 you’re also getting a dual-camera - 13MP + 5MP dual on the back. And there’s a 5MP selfie cam. The 3,380mAh battery and fingerprint reader are also good perks too.
