DEXP BL255 Review, Android Nougat, 3G, Price, Performance & Full Specs

DEXP BL255 is a new Russian smartphone released in the month of December 2018. It is an Android Nougat phone which suggests that somehow it is backward.

Further, this small device boasts of dual rear camera, although storage space and performance specs remain minimal. Let’s dive in and look at other aspects that make this affordable DEXP BL255 smartphone attractive.
