....did the update. easy to install. now my phone uses the battery up twice as fast.
Nice job BLU.
After all the trials 'n tribulations of lousy BLU device updates... certainly BLU must use the most amateurish coders...I noticed that now when you access Settings there is a new entry called "BLU Privacy"...Whaddaduck BLU?...Do you think for a minute that I would allow you to monitor my device or even raise a finger to send usage statistics to a company who allowed Chinese spyware (FOTA) on my device then sent out an OTA Update that rendered my phone useless for 3 months! And latest update did the same thing necessitat a complete hard reset. When it comes to BLU phones, incompetency the order of the day! And though their prices are very competitive you get what you pay for and the operative philosophy for buying their products is certainly...Caveat Emptor!
Madmartiigan, 29 Nov 2017I also just got the update, however i go to boot back up and it asks for a password. Not sure ... moreI am expecting for someone who can help us. my wife's Blu Life one X2 is requesting the update also but we are mot going to update until someone claims resposability, and help us.
Now, after the update, the system is sending a message that if I miss 8 more times, it will erase everythimg.
Installed update..and kaplouee..unable to unlock phone even using correct pattern!
Nothing else to do but hard reset! Since Day 1 BLU updates have made my phone a POS!
Awaiting update to 7.0 Nougat..which will never happen...with BLU's lousy update record maybe that's a good thing?
Amazing that any company can be so inept!
BLU...Bad Lousy Updates...or maybe
Boldface Lying & Unscrupulous!

Anonymous, 02 Sep 2017Congratulations on your purchase...you must be excited to know that your OS is now 2 years old... morelol i went from a 2 yr old 5.1.1 to 6.0.1 and i don't game at all.. so I'm good.. for 160 bucks for the phone, extra a/c & car adapt.. i'm happy.. it's a lot nicer than my old one.
I just bought this phone the other day..hasn't arrived yet.. the 2gb/16gb model.. it's replacing my htc desire 626 ...for $134 bucks new. (btw, the htc almost 2 yrs ago was 180bucks)
4core 1.1ghz to octacore 1.4 snapdragon
1.5gb ram to 2 gb ram
16 to 16+16on card
8mp/5mp to 16mp/8mp
267pixel to 431pixel
i've read decent reviews on various android review boards.. read some good & bad here.. from my observation In 1 month of researching a cheap upgrade ..I've NEVER come across any cellphone in the 150-250 range that's perfect.. More good than bad..so I'm guessing I have a 60-75% chance of not having any issues and it just works.. I'll take those odds for 136bucks.

It's a decent phone...with lousy battery life...and will never, ever get 7.0!
BLU must stand for "Boldface Lying & Unscrupulous???
My 1st...and last BLU phone!
PS. Thank You " Tech Amigos" website for your statement about the BLU Life One X2 "certain" to get upgrade to 7.0...guess it's not only BLU making false statements out of their rectums?
bloo, 18 Jul 2017can somebody please tell me if the finger print scanner for this device is single touch unlock... moreit's depends on how you register the finger print, you can set a single tuch because it's faster.
I just bought this phone a week ago, I had payed for Xpresspost shipping which it rushed over to me, it came in the mail yesterday and I have had the phone for 24 hours and I am v happy with the overall build quality, cpu, and camera resolution for its price point (I paid 260 Canadian). The box it came with was a very sleek black with metallic white writing over it, and it had came with your standard charging port, data cable, and headphones (medium-low quality, compared to the apple ear pods), but what surprised me is that it had come with a screen protector, and case. I would say I am a satisfied customer. (PS Did I mention that it has two sim card slots :D )
bloo, 18 Jul 2017can somebody please tell me if the finger print scanner for this device is single touch unlock... moreI just got this phone, the finger scanner is much much better than the note 4 scanner. I used to own the note :)
can somebody please tell me if the finger print scanner for this device is single touch unlocking or you have to slide fingers like in galaxy note 4?

I wish they would make cases with boy bands like one direction, k-pop boy bands like Exo, bts, or big bang, and/ or make cases with different anime's or anime characters from anime's. I love my life one x2 but i would expect more from them with the phone cases, I think they need more to choose from than just bold colors, abstract designs, animals, etc.

So I cannot use the phone for receiving or making calls. No one can hear me.
