Had blu vivo 5 for about 5 months, worked perfectly. Today plugged in to charge, nothing. Won't charge. The green led light on the front is not flashing. Anyone else having this issue?
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2016noticed minds takes for ever to charge is this normal are u using the charger that came with the phone? i have no issues charging
Best phone I've ever had. Battery holds for 2 days easy. I dont have to carry a charging cable around with me. Pictures with camera and very sharp and clear( if yours are not try removing the protective tape covering the lens for shipping or whipping off fingerprints). Connects with Bluetooth& Wi-Fi seamlessly . It uses the 64 bit processor and does have gorilla glass 3..with a metal body. When talking on the phone the sound is much easier to hear then my 4s was. The display is beautiful with precise color definition. Cell signal is always strong and never dropped a call. A added benefit is that it is a very professional /attractive phone in appearance. Good-by Apple ;-)
Only one problem is that finger print sensor is not there in this phone.If it is there i will deffinetely buy this phone
so guys i have been using this phone for weeks but i noticed a sudden vertical curve from the middle is it normal or there is a problem in the phone does any of you users have that curve too ? please answer at this email ((firstname.lastname@example.org )) thanks
pendragon, 08 May 2016Blu is an American company, and I like that. They use re-branded phones. Almost all of their phones are made by Gionee(sadly).
Severus, 13 Sep 2016Well, Apple killed my 4s with updates so I was forced to get a new phone, after much research ... moreLooks like another Apple fan trying to get others to switch over again. Tear down Android phones because you can. Well, I think this review sucks and Iphones too. They still charge way more than others and I will not get a phone that forces a micro sd card adapter to buy and use the card. Sorry, never liked Apple for the over priced products.
Well, Apple killed my 4s with updates so I was forced to get a new phone, after much research and watching reviews, the Vivo 5 looked like a great option but I wouldn't recommend it for two reasons.
1) The resolution. Games, videos, and apps all look pixelated, coming from a retina display (on a smaller screen 4s) this resolution makes this phone look like a toy. I tried so hard to look past this but its a constant obnoxious reminder that I own a budget phone.
2)The camera. Absolute garbage, cannot make it any simpler than that. It's really depressing that I have to take pictures with my 4s. Horribly blurry pictures and a high degree of tearing in videos make this camera unusable.
"Ok, Google" is very limited in function compared to Siri and highly unreliable on this phone. The battery doesn't last very long (I get about 3 hours of use), and unless you download Soundabout, your mic will be muted when the audiojack is plugged in because it thinks you're using a headset (software issue). Add to that that BLU its STILL not upgrading this to 6.0 Marshmallow and you have a very disappointing experience. Yeah the cores and ram and memory are all great but for the price of this phone I expected more, an older G3 would serve you better.
what site can you get the phone on in the uk? because it is one of the best phones out there
actually, there is a website were you can find out that, here it is the link http://willmyphonework.net/
In Pakistan, This phone is also available with the name of Qmobile Z12. Original Manufacturer is BLU. BLU is not focusing on Image camera quality. Its video is awesome but image quality is not so good of his camera. Only this problem other wise excellent speedy phone.
My wife has this phone and she's super happy with it. Battery life is amazing and BELIEVE ME she's a heavey user. It takes awesome pictures. Also the phone looks really cool.
