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.
Where do I begin...my phone will shut down for no reason....freezes up....then the update came thought it would help it didn't it got worst....shut done more often...hide my spaces....will close app while am using it....speaker work now and then....over heat even more....battery runs down fast....I have over a GB of space on my phone ...when I try to download it would say I still needed space....I would delete but the number will not change...I will to downloada app with just 10mb ...and i have 1647mb ..this shit is driving me crazy cause it still saying need more space....then when and touch the screen... Playing games,texting...surfing the web my screen will go of while its being touch....does anyone have a suggesting ....email me at email@example.com

Does anyone have any suggestion/link of how to root my phone
Bevey, 11 Jul 2016I'm able to connect to data fine, you might want to call your cell phone companyNot able to set custom ringtone it automatically goes back to the default tone when someone calls the phone
Josephine, 04 Jul 2016The Internet connectivity to 4G has totally failed.Is blu looking into this issue? I'm able to connect to data fine, you might want to call your cell phone company
I've always liked blu, best budget phones around. This phone is great for the price, only thing I miss is the fact the hard drive is small. If you can get around from having to many apps you can't beat this phone for the price.
Screen is amazing for a 720p screen.
Highly recommend this for anyone on a budget
The Internet connectivity to 4G has totally failed.Is blu looking into this issue?
anyway, can anyone give this a review ala gsmarena way especially how the battery performs...i just wanna know hehe...
this is (exactly) known as CloudFone Excite Prime in the Philippines...the only difference is the LTE connectivity of this phone, as the CloudFone Excite Prime doesn't have LTE connectivity...
I Am Having A Problem With this Phone. the problem is the 3 g network not comp table for Ethiopia.
I Am Having A Problem With this Phone. The Phone Has A Flickering Screen Issue. when i See pictures on gallery. And When My Friend calls Me From Video Chat The phone Starts To Freeze. I Dont Trust Blu Anymore. And When i get A New Phone Again i am not going to buy the Brand Blu Anymore. And I Am Autistic. I Know When My Phone starts having A Problem.

Great handset, I just haven't been able to enjoy my new LIFE XL, having problems with internet connectivity. Although it promises up to 4G, my data signal reading is constantly on EDGE, although my provider gives a 3.75G, and it shows on all my other devices
For all other networks my handset shows a Generation behind in data speed.
Could it be a defect with just my handset
Does it need some unlocking or decoding of some sort. My persistent calls to customer care have yielded no positive results and my provider says it's a problem with my handset.... Otherwise it's a great device
Im sorry it was BLU Pure XL - - What I said about too many products stands firm!
I love my new phone. I will say there were a few things I had to manually set using it for Crickett. The sound quality is very good and loud - except for my bluetooth to my car I have to have it turned all the way up for use with certain apps( not sure if it is the phone or the apps) The camera - CAN I SAY AMAZING!! - my G7 and Iphone friends are jealous my pictures look as if they were taken with my Nikon SLR instead of a PHONE!!
battery life - welll here is a small issue. The battery goes quickly but with a octacore processor I am not surprised- I also keep the screen a little bright- HOWEVER even with that it seems to have some type of reserve as my battery wen down to 4% and stayed there for 2 hours without me using it, but it did not shut off. The charger that comes with it - I mean I can completely charge my battery to 100% in 45 minutes. 100% in less than a hour. Using a different charger it took 3 hours. ( I dont like that!! ) the battery also gets pretty warm. I down loaded a ton of apps just to test it, it also downloads super fast in any environment -so far. I have had high end phones ( name branded) Samsung Droid Sony LG and typically the flagship of the year but I cant say any beat this phone in any area - ESPECIALLY the PRICE!! I see complaints about not having Marshmallow - I dont get it. I hope to hear back from someone the differences.(please let me know if I am really missing something with that OS). I have had the phone for a few weeks I will come back and update if something changes. - I am getting my hubby a Blue Life One XL - I hope he has the same results. I do thing BLU has too many lines of phones without explanation on what lines focus on what and the actual top of the line phone is for the season. I also would like more case and carrier options although they do provide a case in the box. - I am a BLU fan now.
