The only smartphone justified for being 5.0 Inches: the battery life! If something is going to be big, it better have something big inside of it that takes advantage of the space. Looking at you Apple/Samsung/Google/etc. >_> (Except Sony with the Z4 compact, a is phone that seems ok with the specs and size.)
Can someone please help me. My studio energy won't wake up whenever I double tap the screen to wake up. How do I get it to do that?.
Can anyone please help me. Whenever I double tap my studio energy the screen doesn't wake up. Please can anyone assist me? I don't know what is wrong the phone never been used before.
Old Guy on a Bike, 11 Mar 2015I have had this phone about a week. Based on lukewarm reviews I did not expect much so I was p... morePhone probably in power saver mode. Go to Settings, Battery, un-check Power Saver and blue-tooth will stay on. Had this "problem" with blue-tooth speaker.
After formatting a new 64GB SD card on my brand new Studio Energy, and setting my app install location to "removable SD card" I get an error every time that says there is not enough space. I can't install any apps on it. How do get that fixed? I'd like to resolve this quickly so I don't have to send the phone back to Amazon.
Anyone else having issues with reboots? I tap the power button at times to put the phone to sleep and the power down options come up. When I hit the back or home button to cancel, the phone reboots after a few seconds. I've been putting off a factory reset because besides that one bug, the phone is absolutely sufficient for my needs.
It's great if anyone here compare BLU Studio Energy to Phillips W6610!
I have had this phone about a week. Based on lukewarm reviews I did not expect much so I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to match or exceed my Google Nexus (Samsung III) in most respects. I guess reviewers compare it to an $800 I-Phone which is understandable.
Since I ruined the full size SIM from the Nexus trying to trim it to micro size I did not have phone service until Yesterday when I went out and got a new SIM and a new no contract plan. The call quality is excellent so far. I have not used any phone network data yet so I cannot comment on that but the phone works with WiFi very well.
I purchased this phone because I wanted BT 4.0 LE to pair with an "Activity Wrist Band" and this was the most economical option I could discover. I also liked the idea of the huge battery as I go on extended bike rides running a bicycle GPS app. The battery life is excellent (so far). I went for a 2 1/2 hour ride with the app running (screen off) and the battery dropped by only 5%. Hard to beat! The same ride would take 30-40% of my Nexus battery.
Sadly the only issue I have encountered is with the connection of my modestly priced activity tracker to its phone app. It is a bit ironic since this feature is what I bought the phone to get. I have no way to determine if the problem is with the phone, the tracker or the app but it is frustrating.
The tracker seems to disconnect from the app after a period of inactivity which makes sense. Often I can swipe the notifications bar down, switch to settings, touch the BT icon then when the BT switches off return to the app and answer "Yes" to its request to turn on BT and it is all good to go. The problem comes when periodically and all too often the BT gets balled up so it will not switch off. After touching the BT icon in either the quick settings menu or the full BT settings menu the wheel rotates awhile than comes back to the "On" state and the app will not even look for the band. Recycling the app does not help. The only out is to reboot the phone.
All in all given that the price of the Blu Energy is about 40% of the Nexus phone I am very pleased even given the BT issue. I am optimistic about finding a solution for the BT problem.
Y the bottom keys don't light up . The menu 'the back arrow an the home it don't light up ?
I got my studio energy 4 days ago.. Performance is sufficient for a light user.. But, if you want to install many apps or play games, this is not the phone for you. Low performance is as expected as it's 1.3GHz processor with 1 GB RAM and many apps designed currently is for higher performer phones. But it's smooth for casual user
Regarding battery life, I charged it 3days 10 hours back to 100%. Now battery is still 29%. (Confession: I use my phone always in power saving mode. If you dont power save, it might come for little less than 2 days) I dont used lots of cellular data. I just use wifi and social apps.
Interface is awesome. It's new and smooth experience except there's slight lag while typing. I don't mind that. Rest of the experience is smooth and colorful..
It's an ideal phone for someone who uses phone just for calls, social apps, web and utilities like alarms, reminders and notes.
Well got my BLU Energy 3 days ago and like it a lot. Build quality seems very good. Really like the plastic case they send along with it. It has a nice textured feeling and gives you a great grip on the phone. It should also provide quite a bit of protection if it falls. 720p screen display is really excellent. Clear and bright colors.
I will admit this phone is heavier than my other phone but batteries weight a lot and I carry my phone in a pants pocket so it really doesn't matter to me.
Biggest + so far is the VOLUME. I can hear this phone without jamming it against my ear and the volume is only set on about 75%. First cell phone I can say I can hear really well. And the ringing volume can be heard from the other end of my 1700 sq.ft. home.
Have been playing with it all day today from about 7am to 8:30 pm and still have 75% battery left. Amazing. My old Samsung would have needed a charge about lunch time LOL. That's why I bought this phone. I refused to buy into the daily charging routine.
SIM card is not here yet but will be soon. Then I can test voice quality over cell service. So far I have just used Google Voice, my VOIP provider service and wifi calling and it sounds very good.
A few pleasant surprises not even advertized come with the phone. One is HotKnot. Tap another phone to transfer data. Another is Smart gestures. You can go directly to your camera, Google or phone from the lock screen using gestures like a BIG "C" for camera. Another nice feature are the various methods of unlocking the phone including "double tapping" to wake the phone. And of course there is support for "air or cloud printing". Both GPS and WiFi signals seems quite strong. GPS lock on quickly even sitting INSIDE my home.
Turning out to be one of the best $149.00 I've spent at Amazon.

I am comparing this with an AT&T Samsung S4 running the latest AT&T kitkat rom (almost 2 years old). I would have expected this to perform better.
Running the Quadrant Benchmark app, this phone gave a score of 6975 vs the 11338 (S4) = 61% of the performance of a 2 year old phone.
the Antutu benchmark came in at 18537 vs. 28451 (s4) = 65% of the performance of the S4
I ran a speedtest.net benchmark using the same sim card and geographical location on the app
the Blu phone got 8.5Mb at best (avg about 5Mb) where as the S4 was pulling 37Mb data speeds.
I'm not sure why this data is hard to come by on the web, but here it is. It is by no means a replacement for an aging S4 even with it's technology over 2 years old. Finding a used S4 might be a better choice in this instance, since the S6 is due soon and those used S4's will be more readily available.
Again the battery is a big plus, but if you want performance, be advised.
Comparing this to my son's Samsung S3, the benchmarks are nearly identical with the Blu Energy barely winning. The Data speed however was 27Mb download on the S3.
This Phone's benchmarks compare more with a Samsung s3 (dual core) rather then the S4 (quad core).
