Okay, here is the lowdown. I consider myself a power user. I have to run remote desktop to my Windows work computer (as well as see what my kids are up to at home) with this phone as well as play games and lots of data and CPU involved items. I have had the Blu Life View (big brother to this) and I ended up back at the Studio 5.5. I said it before in my posts, but after months of use, this is a damn good phone for $170 on Ebay. Peppy as hec, no hang ups, no freezes. This phone just works and works well. Never have I wished I had more RAM. I thought I might, just to feel comfortable, but after many hours of use, I am good with 1 Gig of ram in this device. As you may have noticed I purchased the Blu Life View expecting the same in a bigger screen phone and at $100 more than the 5.5, not pleased. I ended up coming back to the the Studio 5.5. The camera picture is better quality, though pixel wise not as much. The rom seems to work smoother. Not limited to 1 gig of space on the rom. I just really have to say, if you want a smart phone that will keep up with today's demands and is no frills and just straight up works, then this is the phone for you. I love the fact that I get Samsung (Gulp!) quality, but if I kill it, I only paid $170 versus $600. Try it, you will like it.
lulu, 12 Nov 2013How is the camera quality is it good??Picture quality is actually pretty darn good. I had the Blu Life View with a 12 megapixel camera and I like the quality of this 5 megapixel better.
dustyman042004, 08 Dec 2013the phone isnt really tmobile fully compatible with the i version or the a version. the i vers... moreYes, Not "I" version T-Mobile in the US. I am using T-Mobile and getting 4G speeds with the "A" version in the US. Speed tests are pulling in 5 and up with bursts of 10 Mbps but an average of 5.8. 4G at this point does not get much faster than this (even though it is supposed to). This is a screaming phone for the price. My wife is using a Galaxy 4 and there is no difference while doing speed tests with T-Mobile
Anonymous, 26 Dec 2013What pin do I put in if I have T Mobile.. Mine says E More details please. By "E" do you mean reception? That is Edge. If you are in the US, you should get more than Edge unless you are in a total rural area.
Anonymous, 19 Dec 2013Does anyone know if this phone has the voice to text feature?No, but I use Swype and it works awesome with it
Rick, 26 Dec 2013What speed am I running if I have T mobile.. HSPA to HSPA+ roughly 4 to 10 Mbps depending on the area.

"A" works best in the US and gets the HSPA & HSPA+. The "I" version works better internationally (out of the US) from what I understand. I use the "A" version and have awesome speed at least in Arizona, Washington, Oregon and California.
