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 )

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.
I don't understand the the hate this phone gets. I have the 64 GB internal 4gb ram version and I absolutely love it it is fast has a really nice screen and very good cameras and for me I get on average 6 hours plus ost
This is a good handset, configurations compatible with the value, at least in Brazil. But it has a problem with augmented app and rally applications with google documents. It can not set the correct screen setting in dpi. If anyone is a solution, please help.
Its the biggest piece of junk , when bluetooth is on it drains what little life the battery has, NO Nougat come on its 2017... Half of my apps will not function correctly, embedded spyware, camera is really poor compared to other Blu phones, old school WiFi - nothing current, Security patch only on Oct 2016 ??????? Blu needs to step up the game A lot before I will ever buy another... Blu does not care about keeping phones current, they just are rebranding Gionee phones....... If you dont care about super old tech then this is the phone for you..... It can barely handle running Mr Number without the whole phone rebooting... Its not Mr Number its the phone.... I cant run skype for business or any Microsoft product without a freezeup or having to hard reboot... and Blu says its the apps but I have a Moto and a LG phone same apps no issues.... Hmmm sounds like a Blu issue.. I would NOT recommend ANY Blu product until patches and Nougat are released.....

I own a Blu Life X2 and the single biggest issue that I have with it is that there are certain aspects of the system settings and interface that are blocked by Blue for some reason, specifically the UI tuner which if you want a customizable Quick Settings menu where say you want to remove or restrict airplane mode so you're not accidentally turning it on mode every 15 minutes, you're not going to get it. And since the device is not rooted you're never going to be able to get around this without rooting your device and possibly breaking it. I will say though that it is lightning fast and I just dropped it on some the cement flat on the screen and it didn't break so that's kind of cool

Also the Note 4 has a much bigger user community which develop custom roms and can offer assistance and/or tips for any troubleshooting.
can some one guide me, im planning on buying this BLU model but for the same price IM getting a Galaxy Note 4 from AT&T, can you please tellme which I is best option and why??
