It's a very good smartphone/price. Only have some issue with the Wi-Fi. The apps works very slow with the Wi-Fi. I think that is a problem with the software because when the phone use mobile data the apps works very fast and very well.
I already report this to customer service because i tried 3 Blu Life Play and other routers and have the same problem.
mafiaprinc3, 09 Aug 2013dual band wifi means the phone supports 2.4ghz & 5ghz wireless frequency and of course u n... moreAh ok, no idea really, i have it somewhere in the back of my head that 5 ghz is rarely used, but i could be wrong. I can say it gets good reception, similar to my laptop. Back to the GPS, one of these days it did go a little crazy during a thunderstorm, where it got my location wrong a good 5-7 times until it finally stabilized. Understandable i guess
Ajs87, 09 Aug 2013How well does it work with 4g lte?This phone doesn't use 4G LTE. Only 4G/3G (HSPA)
dual band wifi means the phone supports 2.4ghz & 5ghz wireless frequency and of course u need a dual band router 2.4ghz & 5ghz
Azfar, 06 Aug 2013how is gps locking and does it has dual band wifi and any confirmation of gyro?GPS usually locks in in 5 to 30 secs, even with a heavily overcast sky. I haven't used it while in a heavy thunderstorm, but i can say it's much quicker to lock than my old n78. Confirmation of gyro? not sure what you mean, the screen rotates if that's what you mean? wifi, well it works :) , not sure what dual band wifi is
how is gps locking and does it has dual band wifi and any confirmation of gyro?
This phone is a really good phone for the price, I bought it to replace my HTC Amaze 4G, and it was a very noticeable upgrade. I did not end up keeping this phone though; I am with Telus in Canada, and this phone, although all of the specs should work with Telus, is not compatible with the Telus network. When I spoke to Telus tech support about this they were not able to give me a reason for this. I was told by Telus that based on the specs and baseband frequencies it should work with the Telus network, but for some unknown reason it is not compatible.
This phone will not work on the Bell, Telus, or Koodo networks, but it will work on Rogers and Fido.

Madai, 30 Jul 2013I want to know if any of you have been sucessful in installing apps to SD card with this phone... moreNo problems at all, you can set your preferred installation memory. Even then some apps still install to the phone's memory, but all you do is view the app's information and you'll see an option to move it to the SD card. Trust me, I got it a week ago and my 32 gb is down to 20 GB available, out of which maybe only 3 GB is not apps ;)
I want to know if any of you have been sucessful in installing apps to SD card with this phone, or is it giving you guys problems with that?
