Blu Vivo Air specs

The Blu Vivo Air is many things. It is very affordable at just $200 off contract, and absurdly thin at just 5.15mm from front-to-back. But there are things it is not — it's not a barn-burning high-powered flagship device, not that you should expect it to be so at that price. For the nitty gritty on one of the world's thinnest smartphones, head on past the break for the complete specs list of the Blu Vivo Air.
