pabloverde, 19 Oct 2013Will have one Wednesday or sooner and will let you all know what I think. I am a Samsung user ... moreOkay, got mine yesterday morning and have been running it through the wringer. Does have 4G speeds Not 4G LTE, but 4G for sure. Speed test is bringing it in at almost 6Mbps. This is with T-Mobile. Benchmark equivalent to the Asus Transformer TF201. Screen is not super crisp, but very clear and clean. Runs very peppy, no hesitations or lag time. Games run smoothly. I did install a Swype keyboard input. I would not mind at least another 512 in RAM, but have yet to have any hiccups. Fits in hand well. I got at the same time a Studio 5.3 II and I really like the feel of it better. It is heavier and has more of the premium feel, but is much slower than the 5.5. Camera is good. 5 megapixels is fine. But quality is good. Calls are clear and loud. The loudspeaker is a little distorted at full volume. The automatic brightness is quirky, so I just turned it off. But overall, I give this phone a 9 out of 10. Again, not a Note II or III. Does not have all the extra little functions, but works great and is no nonsense. Does what it is supposed to do and does it well. For the price, you are not going to find a better phone. I sold my Note II and got two Blu phones for the price I sold my Samsung and had money left over. Selling the 5.3 II
Will have one Wednesday or sooner and will let you all know what I think. I am a Samsung user Galaxy 1,2,3,4 and Note II. I had to tighten my wallet. I don't expect a lot for the price on this, but sounds like it will do what I need to do. Will I miss 4g? Dunno, not like I spend a ton of time on the web. I need it for mobile email and to remote in to my work computer. I will follow up in a week. But really, why put down something just because of the price point. Instead of putting it up against phones that are the elite and expensive, put it up against a phone at the same price point. You get what you pay for. It is like putting a Toyota Corolla up against a Audi Quattro. Both essentially do the same thing... get you from point A to point B, but the Audi will get you there faster and more comfortable.
nice phone and i look forward to buying it but the 3G frequencies should have been TRI-BAND (HSDPA 850 /900 / 2100)
The price of the cellphone is very affordable. the PPI of the screen is a minor detail if take the price. also not all user view HD videos or taken in consderation this. If want a HD Screen better buy a Note 2 or 3 for double of the price.
I don’t get all this complaining about the ppi on this phone. At 178 ppi its running about the same ppi as the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 which is priced at $359 retail – which is double the price. Studio 5.5 is also about the same ppi as Galaxy Grand which is $300, all while Studio 5.5 is still having more ppi than entry level Samsung devices like Galaxy Young S6310, Galaxy Fame S6810 which are still priced higher than Studio 5.5. Not to mention the Studio 5.5 still has much higher ppi than several of the Samsung 7” and 10” Tablets. I think you all should know what you are talking about before posting negative comments. For $179 retail having a Quad Core Processor, and 1GB RAM, the phone is priced great. If you want more ppi then you can spend $700 on a Note 3, since this device is not for you.
