TruBluGeek, 19 Jul 2016does it do AR (Augmented Reality)?No, it doesn't have a gyro
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.
BLU had a notice last fall about using Nextradio as their FM radio app ... however, it does not work in the BLU R1 HD, crashes.
jimberkas, 14 Jul 2016i see no FM radio setting or installed app. Well it says Radio: FM Radio.
Plus Blu was supposed to put NextRadio natively on their phones.
I bought this phone as a Gift to my friend in INDIA
I Liked the design and its very light weight
I could connect to wifi and use most of the common apps
Only thing which i think is not Great is Camera,But considering the Cost its Ok
Yet to insert SIM ...as it is Gift to friend so didnt try that
I hope it works with 3G service with INDIAN Carriers
SM, 13 Jul 2016Is the FM chip builtin and activated? i see no FM radio setting or installed app.
Raslibi, 12 Jul 2016I am ordering BLU R1 HD16 GB phone reserved for Amazon Prime members.
The specifications ment... moreWLAN: Yes
Wireless Local Area Network, which is what Wi-Fi should always have been called. In short though, WLAN and Wi-Fi is the same thing so yes the phone has Wi-Fi.
Raslibi: It's hard for me to imagine the phone *not* having the wifi radios. Like the others pointed out, though, it doesn't support Wifi calling.
No MTK chipset supports WiFi calling with T-Mobile on Marshmallow yet.
I am ordering BLU R1 HD16 GB phone reserved for Amazon Prime members.
The specifications mentioned above never says about the phone's wifi capabilities.
Pl clarify whether Blu R1 is wifi enabled. If it is not WiFi enabled I will cancel the Order.
you guys forgot to post the blu energy xl, I want to know more specs of that phone. either way this phone is perfect for targeting budget consumers.
