If I had to do this again, I would probably try an ASUS ZenPhone 4gb/64gb. This Blu has too many quirks. My previous HTC 10 may have me spoiled, but if you have a feature as a selling point, I expect it to work fully and not half-a**ed.
Also, don't let the alloy construction fool you. These things are not that tough. They're still better than plastic, but again they're not my 10. I am mildly heartbroken that I wasn't able to bring that device over to my new carrier of choice.

If you have figured out the trick, please let the rest of us know.

Maybe that's why my stock launcher kept crashing and I had to go third party right away; perhaps it couldn't load ads.

This works much more like big-name launchers and you'll be able to set it up much more easily; adding or removing shortcuts.

It has been the better part of a year since your post and they still haven't seen it fit to fix this. The device itself is nice, but Blu as a company is very disappointing. They should literally just close their tech support.
I bought this piece of crap thinking I wouldn't have to be charging my phone all the time but boy was I wrong. In the morning I unplugged the phone from the charger and had it with me all day and in less than 9 hours it was needing to be recharged, and that was in standby all day. I never received nor made a call in that time. I just received two text messages. So much for their long lasting battery... and since I can not access the battery, there is no way to swap the battery for a new one to see if it just has a defective battery. So, I just paid to have this phone activated and now I have to exchange the phone for another. Needless to say the replacement won't be the same one... going with a different brand all together. I have no trust or faith in this piece of crap.

Its got a lot of built in storage with the 64 gigs but I find this phone with all its glory to not be all that fast. my old LG is just as fast if not faster with only 8 & 1 gigs respectively.
I can't get the fingerprint to work with any other app. Paypal keep crashing when I try to sync with the fingerprint reader. I misses that feature compared to my previous phones.
Do you know how to delete apps from the main screen? when I press and drag them I only find the "Uninstall" and "Info..." options :(﻿
To update some info about it

ALL of the x2 minis come with lockscreen ads. Doesn't say it anywhere in the description, but many customer reviews confirm this.
Can any owner of this phone confirm if it is hybrid dual sim or it have dual sim slots and separate microsd slot?
already with this phone, I have both, normal 4GB LIFE ONE X2, and mini, compare them into performance, must mention that mini handles everything greater than its bigger sibling how ever I love both, enormous quality folks, I can recommend them at the moment, no complains.
I just received my new BLU Life One X2 Mini. Build quality is great. Look and feel is incredible. UI is intuitive but built on Android 6.0. I wish it was Android 7.0. It is snappy to the touch and I am very impressed for a phone under $200.
