The first Android device I ever owned was the Google G1 unlocked. it cost me brand new 400. It was either late 2008 or 2009 but I know I owned it for sure before I got my iphone 3gs. in june 2009. because I actually sold it to pay for my iphone 3gs. It came with android 1.4 and I upgraded it to 1.5. we used a launcher by tv raman called the marvin shell, and a lot of for the blind apps back then. also, I too owned a BLU phone, the model was called the r1hd and I think I paid like 149 for it it was decent at the time in 2016 with 2gb ram, and so on. after that I owned a samsung s8, a google pixel 3a, and now a pixel 3xl. Android has been a awsome ride and I vote for it to grow and get better every day.
