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

Bought a blu life one x2 a couple months ago. The phone is pretty good, the camera is pretty bad tho i would not recommend this phone to somebody who likes to take pictures.
I am having an issue where the bluetooth drains the battery very fast. I usually can last a good 40 hours without charging the phone but sometimes the bluetooth acts up and i can't even last 10 hours. Am I the only one with the issue? Tried contacting BLU but never got an answer. I can shut off bluetooth but it's annoying as i always have to put it back on in the car or using my wireless speaker. I also tried to shut off the location using bluetooth on the options. Ususally with my old phones i left it on and never had battery issues...
I also cannot use my google cardboard with this phone. I don't know if i'm the only one but no VR is pretty annoying. Everything works but the image is wrong, only takes 1/4 of the screen space...

The phone is one of the best mid-range devices you can get with this price, it's not so fast but also not too slow, the resolution is more than accurate for battery life, stock android give it a little push forward ,smooth performance , The farm is dropping a little with high performance games , The camera is average , solid battery with fast charge version 3,0 , i replace my galaxy s5 with it. in a hope to get nougat update soon but no confirmations, the design is also nice white nearly curved screen, i only found that bluetooth is a little slow when searching for nearby devices , also didn't find a zip manager or memo.

I've had problems with phone randomly shutting down while on a call, any ideas why? Maybe screen setting or something?
Will this phone get an official update to Nougat? I have seen pages saying it will in Q1 of 2017.. But I can't find a confirmation from BLU and they didn't answer my email.
Anyone know? Should I just use a ROM and do it manually?
got mine from B&H already had the latest update on it. tried using it with a sandisk class 10 64gb sd card from my s4. the phone rebooted halfway thru the format as internal process and the card was totally corrupted. even partition wizard failed to clear out the bad tables. then i remembered that card was acting buggy in the s4 it would take forever to transfer files even connected to a usb3 chip reader. stuck in my Samsung class 10 64 gb , no issues with it or the phone. just went blowing had endomon running 3hours hours been on battery for total of 9 hours using Bluetooth music playing / pebble watch and rhythm+ HR connected bat is only down to 79% way better than my s4 or s5 Samsung so im happy nice phone
