Great phone! And they do have firmware updates from time to time. Only problem has been GPS sucks.
AnonD-688530, 31 Jul 2017this phone is not good 3g and 4g is not workingyes i agree. only 2G network works
Everytime I go to netflix or hulu i have sound nut looks like an old movie tape wont play
Well, it comes loaded with bloatware and there's no chance it will ever see an update from BLU. Having said that, there IS a pretty nice Cyanogen ROM for it, but given the current level of price competition for better-than-this-one Android phones, why bother?
The Blu Energy Plus IS what it is. I've had it for two years. The specs are far from great. I find it slow. Battery is reliable for a good day's use. It can be some glitchy at times. It is very solidly built. The GPS IS TERRIBLE. Don't rely on it. It loses contact with GPS while you're traveling. Blu makes some good phones but it is very inconsistent. They have problems. No more for me.
got the blue energy xplus but it doesnt connect to 3g and 4g signals what do i do? i already manually configured the apn but when i switch to 3g or 4g the signal goes off and never comes back
Ike, 28 May 2017How do you open this phoneYOU can do it by removing the SIM card and sd card tray, then pulling the plastic back between the chrome line and plastic
Ike, 28 May 2017How do you open this phoneIf you mean physically, you cannot..the battery is non-removable
Personally I love the Blu Energy x plus. It's colorful and looks like the iPhone 7 and it looks expensive. I love the different themes and icon especially the icon looking like the iPhone.
But I have some problems:
1.Why only the messaging and call icon has unread badges
2.Why can't all the social medias have unread badges
3.why whenever you download an app; if its a green color app,why do the edges around it have to be yellow or another color for example "Whatsapp"
I believe if the app color is red the edges should also be the same
I will like to see the next wireless updates blu energy x plus has it should be this problems
But over all blu energy x plus is a lovely phone
It so cuteeeeeeeeeee.
This was my first Blu phone and definitely my LAST!! In less than 3 months this phone became USELESS!! The WiFi wont stay 'on', it won't read my sim card anymore, Bluetooth won't work, camera won't work & when I put in my headphone the music plays loudly (outside the headphone)
I was skeptical at first towards switching to Blu because of the bad things I heard, took the jump regardless & now I'm phone-less.
To each his own ?

Well, once you get rid of the Chinese Malware and the rest of the bloat in the build, it's not bad, but you have to root the phone to do that, so say "adios" to your warranty. There IS a (unofficial) CyanogenMod 12.1 build for it, which turns it into a much more useful device. In my personal experience, BLU just doesn't get it when it comes to service and support. I am keeping mine as a backup phone. The battery DOES last an incredibly long time.
plus, price, size, battery last LONG time, minus, takes really bad pictures, cant block numbers and screen doesn't rotate when texting if you want larger keyboard.
I have a blu energy x plus phone, when I make a call & you have to press a number to get to a certain department it never goes thru!! Does anyone else have this problem?? Please help
