I will come to the defense of Blu phones. In the USA, we have been tied to those phones that the carriers force on us. Verizon and Sprint are CDMA networks and have been vicious in tying their subsidized phones on their networks locking in users to their programs. It took an act of the US government to force the carries to unlock some of their phones to use with other carriers. I know a hundred people that have never heard of Blu, Xiaomi, ZTE or Huawei- high quality phones that the rest of the world gets to enjoy while we are stuck with overpriced offerings from Samsung, Apple and LG. I have had several Blu products and given that they sell on a low priced model, we are not going to get flagship quality but we do get some very nice products nonetheless. I for one, do not need to spend seven hundred dollars on a phone to boost my ego or buy into power and features that would be wasted on me. After all, I am just making calls, texting and web surfing. As for the RAM on this phone, it may be a bit low but that is only a critical thing when multitasking and gaming. The 8GB ROM is maybe a bit low for now but if Android goes back to allowing apps to be off-put to an SD card, there will be no problem. You might have a different opinion of Blu if you were to use one of their better offerings. The only thing standing in the way of this company growing is their inattention to software updating which leaves a lot to be desired.
Blu has launch more product for user can choosing more mobilephone brand. frankly specking, i never hearing about name Blu phone, i only know Blu is component to make LCD display item. Blu phone is noname for myself. I saw RAM and Screen display is higher other mobile with same price. I hope Blu can launch and release more phone to user can use it
Isn't QMobile Z-8 the same phone except with 2 gb ram and 16 gb internal memory???
EL Picha Larga, 11 Jun 2015Yes sir, you're right. I've had some BLU phones, and BLU update promises are never real. A lot... moreFrom your English, I bet that you don't even owned any blu devices. So why are you lieing about it and spreading FUD?
...the Blu Life One is already available in India as Micromax Canvas Nitro 2.....
RoAzPi, 11 Jun 2015Two things I strongly believe: BLU phone's updates and that Santa Claus exists.Yes sir, you're right. I've had some BLU phones, and BLU update promises are never real. A lot of their phone are still on JellyBean and they were promised to receive Kitkat (I was one of those phone's owners). Also their flagship was lunched with JellyBean in KitKat's era and the promise of the update was never real.
Phones with 1gb ram, by any brand with android should not exist anymore.
