This was the first smart phone I ever purchased back in 2014. It worked great--no heating issues, fast, effecient--for about 6 months. One day, I plugged it into the charger and it wouldn't charge. I had to wiggle the charger around and prop it up just right to get it to charge. Luckily, I was able to get it powered up enough to save my photos, videos, contacts, etc. I sent the phone in to my carrier and received no word about the reason for the issue and a broken replacement. I ended up buying another BLU phone and 6 months down the line, it quit working as well. BLU phones do not last longer than 6 months before some random problem pops up and you need a new one. Don't bother wasting your money if you want something reliable.
2 years. Zero problemas. A lot of falls. 2 times I had re-weld the microphone, only that. Only I will like Lollipop or Marshmallow. I have 4.2.1, but I can do All things.
I've had this device since it was released in Jan 2014 (it is now March 2016). Zero problems with it; charge port still works, no major program bugs despite playing around with things I probably shouldn't. Battery still has long life, still fast and flawless. I only restart it every few months (the play store doesn't like installing things on it sometimes, but this is entirely my fault since I reverted the store to an old version and now can't figure out how to update it; restart fixes this install error every time. Whoops! ^_^)
When I bought the blu life play X, it was perfect, worked like a charm, fastest phone I have seen for such a low price.
It stayed like that for around eleven months and suddenly, I reach home, put it to charge and realize that the phone is not responding to the charger. I thought the charger was the problem and tried out another, changed the adapter and so on. Eventually, I realized that the problem was the phone's port. Dancing through the internet, i find out that this is a prevailing problem. So I took up the task of looking for a technician to fix it. The one person in the island I live instantly told me it was impossible to fix. I saw a tutorial on a solution, but that is a professional's playground.
At the end I bought a battery charger, hoping it could ease my burden, but alas, the battery goes up at around 6% per hour, and when being used goes down about 20% per hour. I am currently charging my battery to transfer my beloved information onto my laptop until I can get a phone to replace my now deceased one. It hurts so much to part with my blu.
Word to costumers, if you see this before buying the phone, do not waste your time and money. It is better to find a better phone.
If you have already bought it, cherish the beauty of blu while it lasts, but start buying your alternative.
And to Blu, PLEASE fix this problem. I love your product too much to part from it forever.

This is the worst phone because charging ports goes out after 2 months. 1000 cell phone fixed mine also then port went out again. I then sent phone to rma in miami for repairs and they never sent me my phone back. Its been a month or so ago but i just bit the bullet and bought a samsung before i sent blu phone in. They wont reply to my emails anymore either.

i bought my phone about 3 months ago. now it just wont charge last night it was on 47% and i left it charging over night but when i woke up it was just on 60%. Why isnt it charging propertly? can someone help me please...
I purchased this phone and my charging port went out after two months of use. I then had the charging port fixed by 10000 cell phones repair company 60 bucks. Then after two more months charging port works but I have to put rubber bands on it to hold it down . most times it won't charge so I'm using external charger. I'm force to spend another 60 or get rid of phone.
Compared to others, this smartphone get hot a lot, doing process and screen freeze with restart looping. I need to remove various widgets and get memory and temperature control apps.
