Best Phones You Can Get Under $100 Fun-boxing! (Part 2)

Best Phones You Can Get Under $100 Fun-boxing! (Part 2)

You’ve seen phone unboxings before, but have you seen “fun-boxings?” A couple of weeks ago XDA TV Host Jordan said, “Enough talk about flagships. Let’s scrape the bottom of the barrel and see what can be had for those on the tightest of budgets. Let’s find the best sub-$100 phone available.”

Jordan vowed to use four budget phones as his daily drivers to test them out and crown the King of Sub-$100 Phones! In a previous video, Jordan introduced us to his four contenders and discussed why they were picked. Additionally, he unboxed the Blu Studio C, the Samsung Galaxy J1 (Verizon Edition), the LG Leon (T-Mobile Edition), and the Moto E (AT&T Edition). But in case you just wanted to best parts of the unboxing, Jordan created a compilation of the unboxings like nothing you have ever seen.

So stop reading and watch the video.


First up, here’s the Blu Studio C,
It’s unlocked, it’s got some simple packaging.
Open it up, and here’s what you’ll find,
Headphones, a case, screen protector and a guide
This phone is the largest in the sub 100 crew
3000 mah battery probably oughta do

Next, you can see the Galaxy J1,
Verizon made it super easy to open,
You get a wall wart with your USB cable,
Papers and a battery that’s decently able.
Finally the phone, and to my surprise,
Samsung put Touchwiz on something this size.

T-Mobile came packin’ with the LG Leon,
The gray’s a little bland, woulda liked it in neon
A SIM card, more papers, and a wall wart inside,
but it’s connected to the cable, not very nice!
The phone itself looks like a little G4
At a fraction of the price, they’ll be walkin’ out the door.

Finally we’ve got the 2nd Gen Moto E
This packaging is HORRIBLE AT&T
Another SIM, tons of docs, wall wart too,
but again, the cable’s tethered, BOO,
The Moto E’s rockin’ that stock UI
It’s not much to look at, but it feels pretty nice.

Well that’s gonna wrap up this unboxing fun

Thank you for watching, and I’ll see you next time.
