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

I have also ordered one blu life one x2..will give my review soon..
This phone is douche. If I knew the phone was so energy consuming I wouldn't have bought. Just texting on WhatsApp for 3min saw my battery losing 2% charge. U can do the math as to how long it will last. And this is with my brightness on the lowest manually.

Andy, 21 Jan 2017Yes, it has a dedicated SD card slot! Ok. Thank you Andy.

Once my phone was set up and working I downloaded music files from Amazon...everything working fine...then reinserted my micro SDXC card...and phone went haywire! Out came memory card, phone still very buggy so another hard reset. Same phone setup, Amazon music download, OK!.. then transferred music files from flash drive onto internal memory...BINGO!!!...Phone went haywire...again! Hard Reset/start anew/Download Amazon music...and STOP!
Can live without multimedia as long as phone is usable!
Hope BLU sends out OTA Nougat upgrade...but not holding my breath on that!
From Day One this fone was funky!
Hardware?...Software? Who knows!
Return to using my Windows Lumia 640Xl as my daily phone..not as good, but reliable! And, with a 128gb micro SDXC loaded with 58 movies and 16000 songs it's a true entertainment powerhouse!
Andy. I know that the BLU Life One X2 is a dual sim phone. I will like to know if it has a dedicated SD Card slot. The specifications of the BLU Life One X2 on www. gsmarena.com did not state whether it has a dedicated SD Card slot or not. Thanks.

I should add that on my vivo 5, when the update failed the device was stuck in a boot loop. I had to enter recovery mode and do a hard reset to get the phone to function again.

Trying to decide if I should re-insert the SD card?
But for now I'll just enjoy my Life One X2!
Thank You for the suggestion!

I also bought a Blu Vivo 5 at the same time and had issues with the OTA. I read a suggestion that having an SD card inserted can sometimes cause problems with updates and so I took mine out to run the update. No problems afterwards. Perhaps this is something to consider.

Try calling BLU Support....They're based in the Philippines!
Their answer...Or rather, Lack of...Should convince you to buy from... Samsung!😅😅😅
BLU...BAD LOUSY UPDATES!
In all fairness, the widely fractured Android ecosystem practically guarantees that any update proceedure could be problematic!
And, from my experience, it certainly is true that BLU's update history is far from perfect....Not even close!
I've read all these problems with having the OTA update,and I was thinking on buying the phone.Has this problem been fixed?

No doubt about it, the BLU Life One X2 touches all the bases in the specifications game!
This was going to be my first true "super" smartphone...And I was really happy with it....Until that lousy OTA Update...From BLU...Ruined my experience!
Cannot adequately express my disappointment!
Hope you enjoy your new phone.

I bought a Life One X2 and it was a very good device...until I installed an OTA Update from BLU...After many hassles with their lousy support team and following their instructions to do a Hard Reset i was left with a phone which is now useless!
My experience led me to investigate BLU's update record...My Opinion? Not a very good track record!!!
It also appears that the results of these OTA updates are Hit or Miss...sometimes they work, sometimes not??
Your new phone should be running latest Android 6.?.? Build so why take a chance with an OTA Update? Another factor to consider is how easy it would be for you to return phone to manufacturer should something go wrong? In my case, I could not do so.
OTA Update is your choice...not mandatory!
My advice.Enjoy your phone and skip the update!
