I just wanted to inform users of the Blue studio 5.5, if you download Netflix, you will have problems with your WiFi and mobile data. I'm not sure why it does this, but it took me a factory reset, and redownloading everything, uninstalling Netflix to finally realise it was Netflix that was causing the problem. I wouldn't have had to factory reset my phone, if I would have just uninstalled my last download. I really hope this helps people. Whatever you do DO NOT DOWNLOAD Netflix. (It doesn't matter how much free space you have, so don't try uninstalling any apps, will not work still)

I am on my 3rd studio blu 5.5(because I had to get the same phone as a replacement) && im disgusted. This phone is flicker jus like the other to. Sometimes i cant see the screen. I would strong advise NO ONE to buy this phone. It.has some kind of glitch that needs to be fixed...I think this phone needs to fome off the market. I wouldnt be so pissed if BLU PRODUCTS cared about there customers problems with these phone and tried to fix it.

Well, I'm gonna try to get my money back from this stupid cellphone. I'm absolutely disgusted with Blu Products and don't recommend that any of you should ever buy from them. My phone started having issues; the screen would go blank, calls would be dropped, and it would crash and restart randomly. When I sent it for a repair, the first time they sent my replacement phone to the wrong address, then when I finally DID receive my new phone, there was no battery, charger, or even back cover to it. After three weeks of waiting for my back cover and new battery I'm absolutely done with them.

Full usage battery life is as low as many other smartphones in the industry, just because as other companies, they need you customer to consume a lot of batteries.

Another topic: in my country if a gadget goes to hell due to factory issues during warranty time, customer has 3 options (as well as reseller), 1st, repair, if spare part is not available in 15 natural days, then customer has the option to either get total money refund or have a brand new gadget (same model same everything, except when that model is no longer available, so you will get an improved model). Obviously you will also have a proper diagnostics document once you send your gadget back to repair, if reseller's labs fails to send you this proper report, you will get the chance to go to National Customer Comission add your sue and you will also get either your brand new item or your money back. Some other cool stuff about my country Customer Care Law is that if your gadget has 365 days factory issue warranty and it fails on day 364 and repair can't be set, then new gadget replacement will get a brand new 365 warranty!!!

That's how it is supposed to work. So in this case, if a BLU stupid-phone fails you and reseller is not able to solve your issue, s(he) will need to provide you with a brand new phone, if you agree with him/her you can get an equivalent brand on the market and case is closed! That's what happened to a friend of mine. She got a brand new Samsung smartphone.

By the way all of this happened in Costa Rica. Believe it or not!

I had a BLU Studio 5.3, I consider this smartphone not so smart as others in market, however for a very cheap price you can get some good stuff. It's a shame that Android does not have compatibility with Flash Player. You miss a lot of content on web due to this.

My Smartphone slip away and nothing bad happened, just when my wife sat on it, screen got a crack, but it still worked properly, then I went to the beach and it got lots of sand on it and earpiece went to hell, so I had to use speaker feature for phone calls along with my headphones attached to Studio 5.3. Now I repaired its screen and earpiece by an incredible cheap price at BLU authorized reseller, I gave that phone to my mother and it is just like a brand new one!!!! She is also happy with its performance.

This phone is crap. Looks great, screen is good but battery life is terrible. Bluetooth will not stay connected to any other device. I bought another phone (motorola moto-g) and now use my blu as a tablet and mp3 player.
