This is the worst ever purchased. I purchased Sept 6 and in less than one week the screen shimmers and shows atleast 8 of said icon at a time. I tried to restore by taking out and replacing battery to no avail. It took one week before it settle down. By Oct 2 and I am back in same problem. This phone is a SCAM what a shame!
Shawn O, 08 Sep 2016Like the phone except for the fact you can't save or forward picture from messages you've received.You can save pics - long tap the pic and options will come up. Save as or forward.

Anonymous, 23 Aug 2016Worst phone, do not buy one, no storage and no cases you can buy at allNo storage? Really? Can't be the same Life XL featured here.. Cases for the phone can be purchased on both Amazon and EBay.. Plus other smart phone accessory stores..

I read these reviews and notice they are no different than the reviews you see on any flagship. It's all about those 3rd party apps u install.
Greatest phone on the market 2016 ,especially ,quality price .13/5 MP Cameras ,Extremely powerful and fast Octa ( 8 hearts ) processor .What is better for around 200$ ?
had this phone over a week and it works perfectly fine, gets the job done and i use the the c*** out of it. not the fastest phone but do you expect from a cheaper phone, everything works fine to date. it also comes with screen protector and case which is always good to get that included.
thengakola, 12 Jul 2016my BLU LIFE XL came brand new with 5.1.1 lollipop; functions OK though it drops calls once in ... moreGood god, this is, bar none, the worst smartphone I've ever had. I've had cheapie burners that were faster, more efficient and could run multiple apps at once (not possible on this low RAM piece o'poopie. It claims two gigs of RAM, and that is as misleading a spec as the octacore processor which is pretty damned unimpressive. Sound? Abysmal. Through the jack, Bluetooth, USB, whatever. Sucks. So does call clarity. It freezes, it seizes, it never pleases. Not a fan of lollipop either. Point blank, I'm switching back to my old phone today and consigning this crap to the dustbin.
I have had this phone for 2 months now and I dropped it accidentally the first day I got it. Stil works perfectly well to this day. Very long battery life too. Just wish I could find a proper case for it.
This Phone Is A Piece of Shit Keeps Flickering The Screen. And Freezing This Is The Worst Phone I Ever Had. this phone Freezes The Screen when My Friends Call Me From Video Chat. Do Not Buy This Phone.
I have like a few weeks of having it, I'm Ing. Networking in RF in Costa Rica, the phone is very good especially for the low price, many of the complaints you see in these reviews is because people do not know to adjust their dispocitivos or buy phones in other countries without knowing which bands is available in the place that they will use or what the operator that you prefer and for that reason does not serve 2G / 3G and LTE, for my part I happy with dispocitivo, mine is 16gigas of internal memory and 2 of RAM making it very quick to perform their functions. If most people do not buy by brand and by price and functionality do this would be the mark of more sales especially as a mark USA.
Great phone for the money!!! I've always purchased flagship phones, and I have to say this phone performs just as good if not better than some of those phones. I am sold. Thank you Blu you now have a believer in me.
I bought the phone and the wifi range was very low, (4 meters) when other phones have 4 lines of wifi the xl only have 1 or less and i cant change it because i bought it while i was traveling in the US,. another thing that I don't like was the hardrive, it has 8 gb but you can only use 1,5 gb, so if you will need a sd card, apart from those two things I think that it is a very nice phone for the price, very good camera, it is fast, and also it has a nice screen.
