can the blu life view os be updated to stock android lollipop 5.0 or 5.1
I've used it for a year now. US, Taiwan, Thailand. great 1st phone. I cannot find any fitness devices that work. Mine shows Bluetooth 4.2.1 as well as Android 4.2.1. It should be BLE compatible but FitBit & Jawbone wont pair ( wont get recognized/detected) at all. Will rooting and upgrading to newer Android help? Has anyone sucesfully used a fitness device on BLU Life View? Also an OTG thumb drive overcomes limited mem and I watched full len films on 20hr flights. Good batt life if you limit the brightness and dont keep OTG mem plugged in.
My Blue phone power button no longer works. when it goes to sleep, the only way to wake it up is to plug in the power cord. Frustrating. This phone cost me $500 and is only a year and a half old. I like Blu phones but this has put me off forever.
I Can Plug It In And It Will Say Charging , But It Won't Move With Me Being On It In The Process Of Charging . Then It Just Shuts Off . Help?

To others I noticed screen goes out when dark. I thought phone was dead but the adaptive display turns the screen off completly for some reason. One i switched to manual brightness I had no problems.
With in a month after purchasing a blu life view I was tethering 2 other phones. After approximately 45 mins. I went to turn off the tether and noticed the phone was extremely hot and I wouldn't respond to anything not even powering off. It stayed on for hours until it turned off or burned the battery. I'm not sure whether to buy a replacement battery or if the phone is fried. Has anyone also encountered this problem if so what's recommended other than scrapping it. Please help...all help welcomed.
I have the blu studio x plus and I've had it about a month and when I charge it the battery charging symbol turns on and off and the battery is only charging for short periods of time. why?

Anonymous, 24 Jun 2015Stupid phone keep cutting off by itself Yep, mine does the same thing (Blue Life view). Lately holding the power and volume buttons haven't been working so I have to connect it to my computer to get it to power back on.

Holding the volume and power button haven't been working for me, so I've been holding the buttons down for 20-30 seconds and it will power back on. I'm tired of dealing with it so I ordered me a new phone. I'm afraid that eventually the phone will not come back on period.

Using phone one minute fine, pulled phone back out and was dead. No charging, nothing. Had phone for less than a day. Very very upset and disappointed. Had noticed earlier that the back of case near camera was warm. It probably malfunctioned. Upset beyond words.

[deleted post]This reply fixed my problem! I found that my screen would flicker and turn off, and wouldn't let me turn it back on. I tried taking the battery out (which isn't easy on these BLU phones) and nothing helped. During a moment when my screen was working (dimly and only for split seconds) I navigated to settings and turned off the adaptive brightness and everything was fixed!
I've also had the problem of it not wanting to send SMS messages as well. I just downloaded a non-standard texting app and it worked just fine. I use Textra.
