Who said you had to blow giant wads of money in order to get a smartphone with all sorts of premium features? Good phones are getting cheaper and cheap phones are getting better. Case in point is the new and remarkably affordable Blu Studio Touch, a $99 Android smartphone that comes with a a fingerprint sensor like all the fancy phones are doing these days.

Of course, you can’t possibly expect the Blu Studio Touch to go toe-to-toe against the Galaxy S7 or the LG G5 or anything like that. It does come in at a mere fraction of the price with specs to match.

Aside from the metal body, 4G LTE support, and integrated fingerprint reader, the rest of the spec sheet is hardly exciting. The MediaTek 1GHz quad-core chip gets backed by 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, Android 6.0, an 8MP camera, and a 5-inch 720p display. Nothing to write home about.

But hey! It’s cheap! And that fingerprint sensor makes security a heck of a lot more convenient. The Blu Studio Touch is on sale now for $99.99 unlocked through Amazon in your choice of black or gold. If you want just a touch more power, a $109 version will launch in September with 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM.
