Launched with the promise to update to Lollipop in July 2015, it's the end of November 2015 and no word on an update yet. Shame on BLU for false advertising. :(
@wersy As I can see, Poland uses bands 900/1800 in 3g and 4g, also one provider uses 2600 band in 4g. So BLU Life One will be compatible with 2600 band provider (Aero2).
Did anyone used this phone in Europe (Poland in particular?) How's the coverage, 3G speeds etc.?
I'm afraid it might not have the right bands...

I have one of these and am using a standard SIM on slot 1, straight talk, and a micro T-Mobile card on slot 2, works like a champ, everything but 4g, but you don't realize it
I love the details on this mobile device. Great job putting it together...
I thought I read online during research that the micro SIM slot (SIM1) doesn't support 4G LTE communication bands (4,7,17). But now I con't reproduce that research.
Anyone know if I can use the Micro Sim slot (SIM1) and get 4G speeds?
for those wondering, I am trying to free up the microSD slot currently used by my nano SIM card. ;)
Loving the phone so far. Was surprised that using the SIM2 slot (nano sim slot) prevents use of the microSD slot. you can use one or the other, not both. Does anyone know if I witch to the micro SIM slot (SIM1), do I still get the same band coverage for 4G bands (4/7/17)?
JooSee, 28 Oct 2015Anyone has problem with this phone keep re-starting itself? I just received mine today, NEW, ... morewith mine happened just the same thing and then at the store we noticed that the protector was pressing the start button. They took a very sharp knife and they cut the excedent which was causing the matter and wala!
Anyone has problem with this phone keep re-starting itself? I just received mine today, NEW, but it keep shutting down and restarting itself... Any thoughts?
LOVE this phone! I had a larger budget for a new phone but chose this one on purpose. I love the design with the very matte dark charcoal sandstone back, the squareness of it, the ease of sitting down with a 5 inch phone in a pant pocket, the Sony IMX135 sensor on this phone which yields excellent pics, the bright display which I had to turn down, the very loud and clear speaker and the small charger and flat cable to prevent knots. A friend has an amoled 1080p samsung screen and I HONESTLY don't see a difference from this phone at its brightest setting. Download Nova launcher if you want to customize your app drawer and home screens. Excellent price for this phone!
Bought a Blu Life One. Not a bad phone but....I bought it thinking I could flash lollipop on it. Don't be fooled by sites that say you can download files for lollipop for this phone or the life one XL. Wait for Blu to make lollipop official.
Mine is going back. I might get it if/when lollipop is official...or if someone from xda posts a viable ROM. Trust no one else.
i have enjoyed my Blu Life One phone for 6-weeks, but am wondering if I have now discovered one of its drawbacks? For work, I am trying to set up contact groups and am not having any luck figuring it out, or finding tutorial help? As I try placing a name into a group, it is not saving it!
Please help if this makes sense.
I just got my phone yesterday, but my LED notification light doesn't seem to be working. Is there something I need to do to set it up?
We are all fighting the good fight for lollipop on this device, BLU is coming up short
For the review part!
YOU MUST KNOW!
-Using a nano sim takes up your MicroSD card slot, its got a combo tray but only one at a time, if you have a microSIM and dont plan on using dual sim then your good to go
-Excellent Cameras, Im pressive front facing camera
-Solid Performance in most apps
-Decent battery under "NORMAL" use
-Need Better Camera Software
-Recent Snap Chat and Facebook updates make those apps slow
