In a change of business strategy, T-Mobile, a leading telecom major, contemplated early last year to bring into the market their own brand of phones. They then went ahead and launched the REVVL and REVVL Plus phones sporting the T-Mobile logo in the final quarter of last year.
Owing to its unprecedented success, now T-Mobile has just announced the successor to the original REVVL phones, the REVVL 2 and REVVL 2 Plus. Let’s talk about the REVVL 2 in details below.
While the company’s tagline, “flagship features without the flagship price” is nothing more than a marketing gimmick, the phones T-Mobile is offering are definitely worth a look for they’re priced very cheaply and is aimed at the price sensitive.
So, let’s take a look at the REVVL 2 phone and its specifications to judge if it suits your needs.

Why buy the T-Mobile REVVL 2?
Well, if you are sure that your needs aren’t much, and you have to buy a new budget-friendly device at T-Mobile, then REVVL 2 is a decent buy for you.
For the retail price of $168, Xiaomi and Huawei sell far superior devices in India an Europe, but both of the OEMs are not selling directly in the US, and at T-Mobile, yet, so all those cool options — easily the best budget phones under $100 and $200 — are out of question here.
The spec sheet of the REVVL 2 is mediocre, easily one of the drawbacks of the REVVL 2. It’s the pricing that matters here, though, and if you are sure you need a very basic phone that is free on a new line, here’s one.
