> In reply to Anonymous @ 2015-04-27 15:12 from j4@r - click to readI've had the X Plus for about 2 weeks and my screen started flickering for a couple days and then one day just went black. Your post helped me get it back on. Thanks! Just to add some further help for others...if you have the "adaptive brightness" option under Display, turn it off. This is the reason that I found why my screen was malfunctioning after multiple testing with this option on and off. I'm not a tech guy so Im not 100% sure this is the solution but with my option off, I haven't had any problems.

To be honest I loved this phone. I have had it for the last 10 months. The mistake I made was not getting a good case for it and ended up cracking the screen. On the bright side, unlike the iphones, the glass does not cut my fingers and the phone works perfectly fine, except for that face that I can't get the 4G to work so my internet is kinda slow.

I have a blu studio x plus. When I 1st purchased the phone a month ago it worked fine. I am on a straight talk/ ATT service. I did the update to the Lollipop 5.0 yesterday. I can no longer receive or send MMS messages and I no longer have emojis on my keyboard. I hate this update.I wish I could just go back to the old operating system.

T-Mobile knew you can't go cheap and get what they have They offered me a cheaper phone until they honored my upgrade I said you gotta be kidding and I can buy a blu for half the price guess the got the last laugh on that one so can't wait for my upgrade so threw with BLU!!!!

I have BLU Life Pure L240a 32GB phone. The screen went black and the phone wouldn't turn on or charge. I took out my SIM card, put it back in, held down the power and the volume button and it came on. Hope this helps out.

I received a Blu Life View in Dec 2013 as a gift. Brilliant colors on the huge 5.7in screen. The phone feels sturdy and firm in your hand. Just comfortable enough but not bulky.
The screen response to touches were quick and smooth. The 12mp front camera takes decent photos and has a HD setting for extra crisp pics.
The ability to root is simple and easy to do. The price is fantastic for a phone this size.

Now for the cons The phone doesn't have a slot for expandable memory card so your stuck with the 16gb on board mem. (the OS actually takes 2gb of that).
The speaker is on the rear of the phone so you would need to turn the phone over or cup your hand awkwardly to listen to music.
Battery life - my Life View seemed to work great within the first year of operation.
Then in October of 2014, I noticed battery life was becoming shorter. In February battery lifetime was lasting from 100% to 15% in 3 hrs. I contacted Blu and explained it was OOW (out of warranty) The rep quoted the price of $25 for battery replacement. Sent in the phone and got a replacement one back, but was never charged. Sweet!! Kudos for Blu for amazing cust service!!
Or so I thought....after two months the replacement phone seems to be going thru the same battery issues. ;|

I've had the Blu life view for about 1 year and every month it gets crappier and crappier I ASSUMED it was a alternative to the competition of note 3 5.7 but like one of the complaint's said I download apps and after so many apps it says no more space and I had a lot so now I have reset phone to factory settings which is stupid in order for it to upload now customer support they hang up on you. I have unlimited everything from T-Mobile and still it buffers when the software needs to update the phone cant take it because in the beginning it was fine but now bye bye BLU id rather spend more get more not get what you pay for
