This is a pretty good phone for the 50.00 I paid for it, But, be aware that newer models of this phone are utter garbage, I bought the new model in 2018 and I was going to rotate the old one to my Mother, but it is NOT the same phone in any way, I think it is another model renamed the HDR1 because it is missing all the features that made the 2016 model so good, no dual sim, no memory expansion and SLOW, I ended up just letting my mother have the new one and stayed with the old model.
this phone does indeed have an fm radio. i installed a custom rom from xda and it comes with the option to install a radio app via adb. as for the battery, if u are comfortable enough with taking it apart slightly, u can change the battery ur self. the r1 hd will also support a 128gb micro sd card, but u have to create two partitions on the card not counting ur swap file partition. the card has to be above class 10. rooted, this phone is capable of a fully operational debian desktop with usb otg peripherals if u know linux.

BLU is a simple but a very nice fone, for $50 its good to have one. * * * * * i used it here in LA then brought to Manila. its unlocked so its compatible with almost all service providers then brought it back again to LA after 2 yrs. and its still working good 👌👌👌 Thank u BLU
My R1 HD has been by my side for the past year and a half, however of late it's slowly started dying on me. However I've had basically no issues until now, and the one issue I had was with my battery. I contacted BLU's customer service and within a week I was able to send it out, and by the end of the month I had it back. I've recommended this phone to people who needed a new one, and I will continue to recommend it.
please my screen and touch spoilt and I need a new one please who have the website for that please?????

BLU R1 HD mobile highly satisfactory...i have been using since june 2016..
Just purchased this phone last week so I have not formed a complete opinion yet but so far I am very happy with the phone. I like it better than my Blu Studio. I got the 16 GB version and added a 64 GB SD card. I'm getting 4G LTE and download is close to 8 Mbps. It's a great phone for the small price of $60 via Amazon Prime. Too bad the battery is not removable but it does have great battery life. GPS is very good compared to Blue Studio C 5.0 HD. With location on I can clearly see what roads I took while Google location shows straight lines from location to location for the Blu Studio. R1 HD has no FM radio but I never used that anyway. I would say it is my favorite phone of all the phones I have had in the past 15 years. I hope it holds together. I always buy cases like otterbox defender for all my phones. Because of the cases my Moto V300, iPhone 3gs, Blackberry 8320, Blu Studio Hd and Blu R1 HD all are working great.
Oldguy, 06 May 2017The volume is terribly low. Unless you have perfect hearing avoid this phone.,Hi Oldguy. I'm old too and my hearing is 40 db at the low range and 90 db after 2khz but I can still hear with this phone. I mostly use blue tooth and can crank that vol up.

fidus77, 23 Oct 2016My friend gave me blu r1 hd from u.s. i use it here in philippines my problem is according to ... moreThe BLU R1 HD has a limited LTE Band support, you need to be sure that your SIM card provider has the correct LTE Band to match the phoes's. I had the same problem in Israel.
