Flash sale: Blu R1 Plus is a $109 Android phone for the next 24 hours

The Blu R1 Plus is one of the cheapest Android phones we have ever reviewed, and right now it's even cheaper thanks to a temporary Amazon discount.

It's on sale today for just $ 109 at Amazon. This is a $ 50 discount on the 5.5-inch HD phone that has a metal design and runs Android Marshmallow.

This makes the Blu R1 Plus about 1/8th the price of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, one of the most expensive smartphones we've reviewed. That's a big price gap. 

The normal Blu R1 Plus price will be $ 159, which is still incredibly cheap. But at that point, it starts getting closer to the Amazon price of the new Moto G5 Plus.
