anyone why is the upgrade for this phone not available as yet come on blu.
yubee007, 11 Aug 2015Looks like the nano sim and micro sd card are the same. How do i insert the two pleaselooking from the back, the micro sim slut is on the right side of the phone. the nano sim slut is on the left side of the phone. however, this slut is also the sd card slut. therefore, you can only have a nano sim or sd card in at once. not both at the same time. so, choose wisely lol

Update to Lollipop was promised in July. It's now August 10 and we're still on Kit Kat. I can't find any update information on the Blu web site.
I recently purchased this phone. Everything was working fine except the speaker volume was much lower than either Samsung S3 or LG E970 phones that we currently use, to the point where I send it back. Also, the signal strength is not as good.
I own one of these devices along with the Blu Life 8 and honestly when it comes to software , the life 8 is better ..
(1) Blu life one Cannot transfer apps to SD although you transfer it to SD and it says it was transferred, checking storage verifies it was not transferred. (life 8 does).
(2) The original Launcher should've been Google.
(3) You cannot Use dual sim and SD at the same time on Life one (life 8 can).
(4) Blu Life 8 USB host capable ( life one not).
On the down side the life 8 USB port is very fragile and getting the sub board is nearly impossible.

JoeC, 23 Jun 2015I pre-ordered this phone @Amazon on June 11. This phone did not become available on June 19 as... moreMine said the latter part of July and I began to question whether I should wait or not. Deciding that a better phone was in order, I ordered an Idol 3 for my wife. I would have ordered it originally but I still think it is a bit ugly even though a friend bought one and it is a hell of a phone. I just ordered the Idol 3 and then found an email that said my Blu would arrive on June 30. Too bad, I went ahead and cancelled it. Probably for the better anyway. Eight gigs of memory and one gig of RAM just wont cut it for a long term phone- spare? maybe. The Blu sure looks like it had some promise but just too damned limited for me. Good luck with yours and I'll bet it will come sooner.
I pre-ordered this phone @Amazon on June 11. This phone did not become available on June 19 as promised. Yesterday it showed on Amazon that the new release would be July 17. Today they have removed that and list it as unavailable although my order now says I will receive it July 21. This type of thing makes it worrisome to trust anything from this company. You probably can't go wrong for $99 yet I don't feel good about it at this point.
Does anyone know if the battery is removable? and is it a standard battery? I need to send this out of the USA and the Postal service says I cant send it with a battery. (So I am thinking of taking it out an shipping it without the battery and having my brother abroad buy a battery locally)
