I never noticed that it was hot prior to not turning on but I did have a lot of issues with just the lights blinking on the bottom but nothing would show on the screen. It got so bad that the only way I could charge my phone was by removing the battery and letting it charge without the battery in for a few minutes then putting the battery back in and charging it and eventually it would start to work. Definitely be cautious though. Once i had to start doing that more frequently, it got to the point where the phone just stopped turning on and wouldn't charge.
I had to send it back as it was a lease (I had 2 more payments on it-never again) to see if the phone could be fixed. My phone stopped turning on in late May-around 5.21; I sent it back by the first week of June and to date, I still do not have the phone back.
I leased it through Straight Talk Smart Pay. Has anyone else used the lease program that they offer? If so, anyone have to send a cell phone back? I want to know why it takes almost 2 months to return the phone back to Smart Pay, have them fix it or replace and send back to me (again, I still do not have the phone back as of yet)?
They also never reached out to me to advise that my cell was received on their end, to let me know what the issue was or when I would be receiving my phone or at least a replacement phone in the 2 months they've had it. I had to reach out to them.
I'm very disappointed with this lease program and would not recommend it to anyone.
I like my Blu Studio 5.0 HD LTE, but there is an ongoing issue. It gets hot when it charges and the charging port seems to go bad. When I plug it in to charge it will not charge and the bottom just flashes. I have paid one time to have it replaced not sure what to do now.
I have got this phone for about 5 months and during this time, I have had two problems with it. Firstly, to assess the address contact was a problem. It would take like forever before it would come on. Then I had to reset to factory setting and I lost all the contacts. Presently, when I receive a call, the phone keeps ringing but it goes dark and no icon to pick the call. I have tried using the resetting technique of holding on at the same time to the power on and the volume button but nothing happens even after 5 minutes. What do I do please?
it has dual sim card slots but the middle one, between the primary sim & the memory card slot doesn't seem to be accessible. there is seems to be something in there with a rubber plug glued to it in that slot. is it usable & if so, how & what kind of sim card goes in there??
How/why did the microphone leave my key pad? Please help... I'm out on vacation. Thank you!
I have a blu studios 5.0 and some how i can't setup my voicemail. i looked up how to do it on internet and it said to press and hold 1 to be connected to voicemail and follow instructions. every time I do that it gives me the "BUSY" tone and doesn't connect me. ANY HELP????
Anonymous, 26 Dec 2015i have a blu 5.0 and my wi-fi is not coming on what should i do Nothing
Bought this crappy thing new at Best Buy in April. First issue is the volume on the speaker, in the earpiece, and headphone output.....it is way low. Then after 4 months the mic went out. Returned it and they sent me a new phone, which ALSO had a bad mic out of the box!! Sent it back and got a third phone. It's mic is holding up, but the volumes are still way low, and now it is kicking itself off the internet every two minutes and goes back to homescreen. STAY AWAY from this junky thing!!
Have a question I have a blue studeo 5.0 LTE it crashes and it Start's up again when the battery gets hot I don't think that's normal that what I noticed I had it less than a week should I retern it and get another one .

Loved the phone for the first month, and then the problems started. Soon became very laggy when opening/switching windows, apps, etc.. Battery life suddenly went way downhill. The main problem I have is overheating.. through even normal use the phone will overheat to the point that it shuts itself down. I have to wait until it cools off before I can even connect it to the charger. Would be a great phone without these problems.
is there any other way to reset blu 5.0 back to factory status other than wiping status and booting it because nothing working for me only getting blu screen and had phone less than 5 months
The first month that I had this phone it was great but then more and more the phone started lagging and then crashing when apps were opened, the keyboard laggs sometime too and sometimes the phone would just shut down by itself too...do any of you know how to potentially fix this?
Price and features of this phone are great and I really like Blu phones! However I purchased this phone in JUL 2015 and by AUG and although it had never been dropped, the microphone became intermittent causing static during calls until the mic stopped working altogether. I RMA'd the phone late AUG and by late SEPT WITH a new phone (noted by the new IMEI number) I experienced the exact same mic static and interoperability problems. Taping the phone "sometimes" seems to fix the mic problem (temporarily), however the tapping may be get a bit aggressive after a while.
IMHO this is ether a product design flaw or a persistent quality control problem since several people have reported the same problem. Buyer Beware! Research your phone before buying.
