I have confirmed with BLU That the BLU R1 HD does not have an FM radio.
I would like if you got the review of this phone. I love it and would like to see one of your great reviews!

I walked into cricket and walked out in less than 10min with my new Blu phone. They seen impressed but ine guy made a mocking sound when heard about be adds. They just took the sim card out and swapped it. And entered their info. I understand that I could have done this at home by logging into my account and getting the info. The service seems just as clear as it was on the iPhone. Plus the stress of not breaking a $500 phone -- so far I am learning how to use the apps. The Amazon photo and Amazon drive and Amazon. Cloud. I am all confused. I couldn't find any of the photos to text and then I did add a photo by accident That I did Not want to share but I couldn't find the option to cancel or abort. So I am trying to learn it. But pretty much it's like ge iPhone. I do keep my phone locked because the Amazon is always open and ready to shop. So is Google. So I do keep it locked. One day I got a nice blue empty page with my name date time ..I love it. But it's gone and not sure how to get it. I open the phone and I usually have a products for sale. I swipe the screen and then enter my pin.
I hope my ramblings helped someone. Maria
I purchased Blu R1 HD 16 GB from Amazon.com with my brother in law's Amazon Prime membership account which costed me R's.4000/ (59US$). The phone is amazing in all respect. It has very few minor shortcomings which also found in expensive phones. Overall I rate it with 5 Stars. R.Ramamurthy. Mysore.
Amazing... truly amazing...
Any electronic devices now a days works for max 2 years. And for that you spend some $1000...! Waste waste of money don't go like a sheep in a herd .. think before you act... This mobile is good for daily use and what else can you expect from a $60 mobile. I have used iPhone6s Google Nexus5 and Samsung s6 as well they also do the same nothing big... Yeah I agree it may stuck once in a while.. so what let it go
I love it I use it for 1 year and then give it to my kids to play games and again buy a new one ...
Clowie, 21 Jul 2016Do I have to have prime for it to work with that priceYes. I had a friend with Prime order it for me.
Clowie, 21 Jul 2016Do I have to have prime for it to work with that priceHello Clowie! Only Prime users can get the phone at $59.99 (2GB RAM/16GB ROM) and $49.99 (1GB RAM/8GB ROM). But for the price you get Lockscreen Ads. You can also buy the normal version (which is more expensive and you don't need Amazon Prime, plus this version hasn't lockscreen ads) for $109.99 (2GB RAM/16GB ROM) and $99.99 (1GB RAM/8GB ROM)

Anyone here that has cricket as there carrier? If so you don't mind if you tell me how it is thank you :)

This is a great phone. I have the Blu r1 HD 16 gig. Great gameplay! Works on T-Mobile perfectly and it can have two Sims at once for a back up! I play Pokémon go and it's runs sooooo smooth. I'm very impressed especially at the low price of 59.99! I would say it's better than an iPhone so far even though I've only had it since Saturday lol :D
J-Rod, 05 Jul 2016Thank you BLU for coming out with a phone that has more than 1 gig of RAM. 1.5 gigs at the ve... moreSecond that. All their previous phones only had 1GB RAM, and that is what has kept me from buying a Blu phone.
I got my R1 HD in this afternoon.
It's lacking some things, but a quad core, 2GB RAM phone for $60, you can't beat that with a stick.
