Bought a blu life one x2 a couple months ago. The phone is pretty good, the camera is pretty bad tho i would not recommend this phone to somebody who likes to take pictures.
I am having an issue where the bluetooth drains the battery very fast. I usually can last a good 40 hours without charging the phone but sometimes the bluetooth acts up and i can't even last 10 hours. Am I the only one with the issue? Tried contacting BLU but never got an answer. I can shut off bluetooth but it's annoying as i always have to put it back on in the car or using my wireless speaker. I also tried to shut off the location using bluetooth on the options. Ususally with my old phones i left it on and never had battery issues...
I also cannot use my google cardboard with this phone. I don't know if i'm the only one but no VR is pretty annoying. Everything works but the image is wrong, only takes 1/4 of the screen space...

The phone is one of the best mid-range devices you can get with this price, it's not so fast but also not too slow, the resolution is more than accurate for battery life, stock android give it a little push forward ,smooth performance , The farm is dropping a little with high performance games , The camera is average , solid battery with fast charge version 3,0 , i replace my galaxy s5 with it. in a hope to get nougat update soon but no confirmations, the design is also nice white nearly curved screen, i only found that bluetooth is a little slow when searching for nearby devices , also didn't find a zip manager or memo.

I've had problems with phone randomly shutting down while on a call, any ideas why? Maybe screen setting or something?
Will this phone get an official update to Nougat? I have seen pages saying it will in Q1 of 2017.. But I can't find a confirmation from BLU and they didn't answer my email.
Anyone know? Should I just use a ROM and do it manually?
got mine from B&H already had the latest update on it. tried using it with a sandisk class 10 64gb sd card from my s4. the phone rebooted halfway thru the format as internal process and the card was totally corrupted. even partition wizard failed to clear out the bad tables. then i remembered that card was acting buggy in the s4 it would take forever to transfer files even connected to a usb3 chip reader. stuck in my Samsung class 10 64 gb , no issues with it or the phone. just went blowing had endomon running 3hours hours been on battery for total of 9 hours using Bluetooth music playing / pebble watch and rhythm+ HR connected bat is only down to 79% way better than my s4 or s5 Samsung so im happy nice phone

This phone is douche. If I knew the phone was so energy consuming I wouldn't have bought. Just texting on WhatsApp for 3min saw my battery losing 2% charge. U can do the math as to how long it will last. And this is with my brightness on the lowest manually.
nikhil, 24 Jan 2017does this phone support reliance sim (jio) sim in india?Have ordered one from USA... Will check when it arrives it Jio sim works... Thou i will be using Jio still in it

Once my phone was set up and working I downloaded music files from Amazon...everything working fine...then reinserted my micro SDXC card...and phone went haywire! Out came memory card, phone still very buggy so another hard reset. Same phone setup, Amazon music download, OK!.. then transferred music files from flash drive onto internal memory...BINGO!!!...Phone went haywire...again! Hard Reset/start anew/Download Amazon music...and STOP!
Can live without multimedia as long as phone is usable!
Hope BLU sends out OTA Nougat upgrade...but not holding my breath on that!
From Day One this fone was funky!
Hardware?...Software? Who knows!
Return to using my Windows Lumia 640Xl as my daily phone..not as good, but reliable! And, with a 128gb micro SDXC loaded with 58 movies and 16000 songs it's a true entertainment powerhouse!
Andy. I know that the BLU Life One X2 is a dual sim phone. I will like to know if it has a dedicated SD Card slot. The specifications of the BLU Life One X2 on www. gsmarena.com did not state whether it has a dedicated SD Card slot or not. Thanks.

I should add that on my vivo 5, when the update failed the device was stuck in a boot loop. I had to enter recovery mode and do a hard reset to get the phone to function again.

Thank You for the suggestion!

I also bought a Blu Vivo 5 at the same time and had issues with the OTA. I read a suggestion that having an SD card inserted can sometimes cause problems with updates and so I took mine out to run the update. No problems afterwards. Perhaps this is something to consider.
