Boost Mobile’s Indy (a rebadged ZTE B816) is on sale in Coles from today for $19 – which is a half price saving!! A 4-inch Android phone for just $19 is a steal, no matter which way you cut it. Lets be honest, who doesn’t like a bargain eh?

Whilst the Boost Indy’s specs are a little on the “eh” side, it’s the price that matters here. So in case you have forgotten, here is the full list of specs for the Boost Indy (ZTE B816) device:

  • 4.0″ WVGA display
  • 1GHz Dual-Core processor
  • ARM Cortex A7 CPU
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB Memory on board with 2GB user space available, expandable to 32GB via microSD Card
  • 2MP Rear Camera only – no front facing camera available
  • Android 4.4 (Kit Kat)
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v3.0, A-GPS
  • Network Connectivity:
    • 2G: 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
    • 3G: 850, 2100 MHz
  • Battery: 1200 mAh Li-ion, user-replaceable battery
  • Dimensions: 125 x 64 x 9.8mm @ 123g

The Boost Indy comes with Android 4.4 (Kit Kat), and there’s next to zero chance of it seeing an update past this, but for $19, you really can’t expect too much. What you do get, though, is a reasonably capable phone which would also make a great phone for kids, or as a spare to keep in your glovebox in case you trash another. For those who want a smartphone but simply can’t afford hundreds of dollars, this is a great way to take a dip into the land of Android!

The Boost Indy (ZTE B816) is available at your local Coles store only from today (Wednesday 19th October 2016) for $19 for 1 week only or until stock lasts. Also worth mentioning that the device is locked to the Telstra Network so unlocking fees will apply.
