After a few months of using the phone, the battery stopped working how it should. The phone charges really slow and sometimes discharges when connected. The battery doesn't last longer than 4 hours.
I would not recomend buying this phone.
I bought the BlU life X 2016 model, How to change to mp3 ringtones? I am trying without success so far HELP!!!!!!!!!
one of the must common hardware problems on this phone is with the power/on key that after a few weeks of usage it brokes and stays inside the phone case, so annoying that happens because of a pretty cheap materials that this phone has bin built in!!

The solution is to go into Settings>Language and input. There you will find the list of keyboards you can use. Click on android keyboard. That is the keyboard your phone is designed to use. It will not be lagging. You can uninstall or disable the other keyboard applications after this step. Hope this helped!

No app has access to the "cells" of your battery, and no app can "scan" or repair battery "cells". It's complete snake oil. Just wanted to let you know... (Google it, it's verifiable.)
I found an app that helped me with a poor performing battery. After the first few days I noticed the battery would discharge very fast I downloaded "Battery Repair Life" which scanned my battery and found several bad cells, it applied a fix which really helped my performance issues... still not great but 30% better than before. I did subsequent scans but the app never found any other issues or bad cells. BTW only use BLUs supplied charger and it does charge completely and very fast, usually less that 4 hrs.
I get a whole day useage now but I don't make many calls and under wifi most of the day.
Another tip, turn off wake gestures. It kills your power.
Just use the front camera and set in front of mirror. Dont use flash.
You get what you paid for it. It's an elegant slim phone. Nice screen quality.
I been using it for 3 month now. Battery is not the best, but last 20hs with normal use like average phones. Camera isn't perfect but does well its job (im using Open Camera as always). Front camera is good, and have flash there too
Its powerfull enought to don't fell ANY lag at all... even with a 1080p FullHD screen
The update to marshmallow would be awsome, we all are waiting for
I have had this phone for almost a week now. At first the size bothered me, and the fact that there is no physical home button. I didn't realize that would bother me. Before I had an LG Volt, 4.7" with a better screen to phone ratio. The speakers are poor but audible. The battery life is unbearable. I keep it on the power saving setting... I even went to sleep late one night the battery was almost dead and I woke up at about 5:30am, the phone had been on the charger but was not fully charged. I am not used to that! I am going to try to stick it out with this phone because I bought it for only $100. Otherwise I would have gone with the Galaxy Grand Prime... Where can I buy the best, least-obtrusive, most protective case & screen cover... I want to keep the phone in good shape in case I do decide to sell it and get something else.
Does anyone know how to take a picture of a dead pixel. Customer service won't fix it without proof and all the pictures I take I can't see the dead pixel
Bob, 30 May 2016It can last all day in its idle state, assuming you don't have apps open in the background. Wi... moreGod i know what you mean. On idle, the biggest battery consumer is "SYSTEM IDLE" and "NETWORK SCANNER" . together they consume 70% of the battery.
Blu supports comment on the issue: Well when you're not using it, why not put it in AIRPLANE MODE... WHAT!? so am i to understand that Blu Products are only good if you need to make calls? forget about keeping your phone on idle to receive communications... Max achieved battery life on IDLE from 100% : 5h47m .
Not even a full day... And keep in mind, for this test, NOTHING is installed. There isn't even a google account tied to it yet. simply charged it, and kept it on idle.
BLU- we want marshmallow, please get it to us ASAP. I still believe you can fix many of the problems enumerated by customers so far with that update.
It can last all day in its idle state, assuming you don't have apps open in the background. With wifi on and the screen on anything but its lowest brightness setting, you can only expect a few hours of active use out of this thing. Plan accordingly.
