Amazon Canada is a top destination for all the latest in technology and electronics, so it should come as no surprise that the mega-retailer also has a large selection of smartphones.

Unlike the big brand names in smartphone technology, Amazon is also home to some ultra-affordable devices. Many of them are a fraction of the price of other models, meaning you can score a high-quality phone that won’t break the bank.

The Blackview A55 Android smartphone is just one example, and right now it’s on sale for $119.

What is it?

The Blackview A55 Android smartphone is one of Amazon’s most affordable unlocked smartphones, and it’s currently getting a 15 percent discount on launch. This sleek smartphone has a large 6.5-inch display for brilliant viewing and runs on the Android 11 operating system.

The phone has 16 GB of built-in memory, plus space for up to 128 GB of external storage. You can use the phone’s 8-megapixel quad camera to take beautiful photos and videos, as well as the 5-megapixel front-facing camera for high-quality selfies and video calls.

The Blackview A55 also has a long battery life that provides up to 24 hours of use, and 200 hours in standby mode. Buy it in three colors: black, green and blue.

“Great budget phone”

Amazon customers have so far been impressed with this affordable smartphone, which they say “goes toe-to-toe with well-known brands.” It has received an average rating of 3.9 stars from more than 300 customer reviews, which have praised its “excellent value.”

The Blackview A55 has been called a “great budget phone” that works well for “calling, basic browsing and minimum functionality.”

“For the price, I’m actually totally blown away,” raved one reviewer. Admitting to using the phone mainly for phone calls, texts and “the odd YouTube video”, the phone still manages to be “seriously impressive”.

“Perfect for children or the elderly”

With its simple Android interface, the phone has been called “the perfect phone for kids [or] seniors.” Reviewers say there was “no learning curve required,” making it easy to set up and use right away.

But since this phone only has 16GB of storage, buyers are advised to buy an SD card for extra storage beyond “a few basic utility apps.”

Final verdict

If you’re looking for a cell phone that won’t break the bank, the Blackview A55 Android Smartphone might be worth considering. Given that it usually retails for $140 and is now on sale for just $119, it’s certainly an affordable choice.

That said, this phone doesn’t have all the latest tech, so you might want to pass on this model if it’s high on your wish list when buying a new device.
