If you want an Android phablet with a large 5.5″ high-definition display and a fast octa-core processor, you had better be prepared to pay $500, $600, even $700 or more, right? Wrong — not if you know where to look. For a limited time, Amazon is offering a killer price on a BLU Life 8 XL Smartphone with no SIM lock and no contract.

Here are the key specs:

  • 5.5″ HD Display (720×1280): 8MP Main Camera + 2MP Front Camera
  • 8GB Internal Memory 1GB RAM Micro SD up to 64GB
  • MediaTek Octa-Core 1.4 GHz processor, Android 4.4 Kit Kat OS Upgradeable to 5.0 Lollipop
  • GSM Quad Band 4G HSPA+ (850/1700/1900): US Compatibility Nationwide on all GSM Networks including AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, MetroPCS, Tracfone, Straight Talk, Pure Talk USA and others

Sure it’s not a cutting-edge Samsung phone, but most of the smartphone users out there would rather get a good deal on a good phone than pay almost $1,000 on a top-of-the-line handset. This deal lasts until the end of the day on December 17.

BLU Life 8 XL Smartphone – Unlocked – US GSM – Black (other colors available), $99.99 with free Prime shipping
