i own this phone and i am very satisfied with it's performance.calling is good,hspa and hspa+ is shown when browsing,internet speed is good,wifi is good,the screen resolution might be 178 but you have to actually see images yourself and you will see how clear they are,i was pleasantly surprised.the viewing angle is also very good even though it is not ips,the rear camera although only 5mp takes very good pics,and the front camera although vga is good also,i have used other vga front cam phones and this one is good,the camera flash is good too,i am not a gamer but i downloaded an offroad driving app and although the app took about a minute to load it played well with no lags when started,the gps also is good,i use here maps and navigator with no problems,and though it is not stated in the specs here,this phone has a digital compass built in.all in all great bang for low bucks.
so i have a blu 5.5 and it only has 4 gigs i have a 32 gig sd card but nothing is saving to it it only lets me take a few pics before it stops me smh i am starting to hate this phone how do i get it to go to the sd card anot the phone its telling me "change the default write disk" i have no clue
Why is the message icon displaying that I have one even when I have no new msgs.....how do you fix that?
oliverhowells, 15 Jun 2015After formatting a new 64GB SD card on my brand new Studio Energy, and setting my app install ... moreCurrently, on a similar device, if there is more than 32GB free on 64BG SD Cards some write actions fail. It can also cause 'insufficient space errors' while installing apps via Google Play Store, due to the write errors. The solution, so far, has been to add 32GB+ of data via PC, to fill some of the space (but even then TiBu can't backup apps). It's a silly issue, and only a 90% fix, but hopefully BLU fixes the issue someday with an update.
So far so good. This phone is faster than my Samsung Galaxy 3 and voice quality is better also. I think this phone is the best bargain in cell phones out there. The only issue I had was setting up MMS photo messages. It would not work. I called Straight Talk customer service and they gave me the correct settings to type in and everything is fine. I was told since this an unlocked phone the APN setting has to be manually set.
viv, 07 Jun 2015I purchased a Blu 5.5 and a month after the screen starts flickering. Is there any fix for it?The phone gets to hot and it starts flickering. Or if the sun beems directly on the screen to long it starts flickering. Let it cool off and turn screen away from sun.
Greetings. Several issues with my phone, although a great price...Main thing is since I got it, it gives me an overvoltage message when charging, on ANY outlet. This is a concern as I am not always with the phone when charging, what if I am not there when it gives this message and I dont disconnect? :( Anything issue is that I have wallpapers and themes, keyboard themes...when I restart or turn phone off, it resests everything. Its a a pain :( The time also resets, and if I am not connected to wifi, the time stays wrong until I am get connected...never had a phone do this, even cheap $20 phones have the correct time always, whether phone shuts off, restarts, or not on wifi. And if this isnt annoying enough...it does not show an indicator that it is charging...I have to constantly check the phone to see if still charging..I see where there is an indicator where it should ligh up, but it does not :( Anyone have these same issues, and if so, know how to fix any? too late to send back to where I bought it :( Thanks to anyone for any help! :)
This is one of the BEST possible phone deals in the world. The phone is awesome and functions as well or better than the other androids I've had. The price was crazy - $125 on amazon and threw a $15 32gb card in it that I can then take out and put in my computer for instant picture work. The camera works perfect and the battery life is awesome. I have the 5.5 and my wife has the 6.0 - both are excellent and I'm likely to stay with BLU phones. We originally got the 6.0 as a "test" to see if my wife wanted to buy a Galaxy Note. When she realized that it already had a larger screen than the Note and works just as well - she decided to stay with it. My HTC X-one was always great, but really isn't as good as the 5.5 The OS and interface are also improved. I strongly recommend.
I love my blue phone but it could be way better if we had emojis like I hate these little b&w emojis.
Openarms, 29 May 2015My blu5.5 keeps telling me insufficient memory, how do I get rid of the junk?SD card
I love this phone. I've dropped it plenty of tines without a protective case and it hasn't cracked. Only thing I hate is the emoji's. Other than the emoji's this is an awesome phone. Its really dependable.
