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.

Trying to decide if I should re-insert the SD card?
But for now I'll just enjoy my Life One X2!
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.

Try calling BLU Support....They're based in the Philippines!
Their answer...Or rather, Lack of...Should convince you to buy from... Samsung!😅😅😅
BLU...BAD LOUSY UPDATES!
In all fairness, the widely fractured Android ecosystem practically guarantees that any update proceedure could be problematic!
And, from my experience, it certainly is true that BLU's update history is far from perfect....Not even close!

No doubt about it, the BLU Life One X2 touches all the bases in the specifications game!
This was going to be my first true "super" smartphone...And I was really happy with it....Until that lousy OTA Update...From BLU...Ruined my experience!
Cannot adequately express my disappointment!
Hope you enjoy your new phone.

I bought a Life One X2 and it was a very good device...until I installed an OTA Update from BLU...After many hassles with their lousy support team and following their instructions to do a Hard Reset i was left with a phone which is now useless!
My experience led me to investigate BLU's update record...My Opinion? Not a very good track record!!!
It also appears that the results of these OTA updates are Hit or Miss...sometimes they work, sometimes not??
Your new phone should be running latest Android 6.?.? Build so why take a chance with an OTA Update? Another factor to consider is how easy it would be for you to return phone to manufacturer should something go wrong? In my case, I could not do so.
OTA Update is your choice...not mandatory!
My advice.Enjoy your phone and skip the update!
I recently ordered this phone and it is on its way. Now, looking at the ota update problems, I have no idea what is going on. Can someone please explain the whole ota update problem making people's blu phones unusable? I don't know if I can avoid getting the update.

I'm contemplati... moreAfter speaking with BLU support.,in the Philippines...They sent me instructions on how to do a hard reset which I did but which had little effect... Basically, I couldn't use Google apps, no camera, music or video playback, no Amazon Kindle.,in short, a near useless
At this point, I could at least get to home screen but continued instability led me to try another hard reset...MISTAKE? Resulted in a situation where I could only get to 3rd step in setup process (wi-fi connectivity) and then could not connect with Google servers...And thus no home screen!
That is where matters stand at the moment.
On other social media sites there are reports that the OTA Update had no adverse effects!
Guess it's Hit or Miss?
I would not install the update....BLU says it's dropping the Adups updater in favor of a Google version...And at the moment I can only hope Blu issues another update or maybe an upgrade to 7.0 Nougat and that I might be able to install either and get my phone working again?

From the manufacturer!
Other than BLU's track record!

You update your apps regularly don't you!
And an OTA Update released to remove pre-installed Chinese spyware to boot!
It's not about the latest /greatest OS!
Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't updates supposed to make your phone better?
If not, what's the point of any update?

A decent phone rendered inoperable by an update from BLU!
Laughing all the way to riverbank where I am planning to cremate my phone and throw the ashes into the river Grijalva in hopes that the ashes will be carried by Gulf current to Doral Florida ,(BLU HOME Office) and plug up the toilet in the Executive Suite!
