The T-Mobile Revvl was released on Thursday, August 10 and is being classified as their budget-smartphone. The price up front is $125 or just $5 a month, but let me tell you why I’m so interested: it’s loaded with mostly great specs.
The Revvl comes with a 13 megapixel camera, a 5.5″ screen with a resolution of 720×1280 and a 3000 mAh battery. The only two catches are the 2 Gigabytes of RAM and 32 Gigabytes of storage, but we can’t blame T-Mobile for that.
The most important parts of this phone that stick out to me are the battery and screen size. Yes, a good camera is important with every new Smartphone, but how can you use your camera if your budget phone is already dead for the second time today? For the Revvl to be the same size as the iPhone Plus models is outstanding. As people who have went from a 4.7″ iPhone to a 5.5″ Plus know, watching videos, catching up on the news and playing games is a great amount better than the latter phone. The RAM and storage on this device is very familiar with budget phones, even though it is only a couple years behind in current capacity standards.
I could keep going on, but I would probably keep having my sentences end in “for only $125!”. T-Mobile is the perfect brand to bring out a budget product that exceeds expectations, since that is usually their unwritten mission statement. For first time Smartphone users, or people who don’t need a lot of space to function with, this is the perfect option.
