The phone has its pros an cons. Interestingly I bought two of these last year. One was for me and one for my husband. We both had different experiences.
Keeps good charge (we play radio or music for hours and the charge does not run down quickly
Takes nice pics
Browses the internet quickly.
Poor memory. After downloadinga few apps you get stoerage full message. Even if you use a 16g memory card and you can see that you have used less than 2g. Changing the downloads destination has no effect you still get the message
External Speaker stopped working within 2 months
I therefore need headphones to listen to music, radio and videos.
Whatapp and other Apps do no notify you on the screen as to how many messages you have waiting or if you have any messages at all. You must open the app to see if you have messages.
Had to uninstall Facebook and one mobile market as soon as I installed them. Seemed like these apps were also messing with memory
I like the phone but have to monitor what I download because of the memory issue and I miss many calls because the phone does not ring (external speaker gone). My husband is justa call and text/WhatsApp person he simply loves his phone
I cant wait for new phone. I have this phone year and a half and I can say its awful.
1. Snapchat filters doesnt working.
2. Also I cant install most of the apps.
3. Some popular games doesnt last long, maybe after some times their data delete by phone. (Minecraft, Crossy road..)
4. Memory is also awful. Only 4 GB internal storage???
Only kinda good thing is camera nothing else.
Sometimes my photos got deleted and it says "Cannot generate thumbnail" I mean PLEASE, I had such a great moments and most of that moments pictures got deleted.
And its really stupid because its 4.3 jellybean version, and not 4.4. Thats why most of apps cant be installed and why snapchat doesnt have filters..
BUY EVERY PHONE EXCEPT THIS ONE !!!
disappointed, 01 Oct 2014Love the phone for two weeks. After two weeks it would not turn on. It was not dropped or abu... moreMy baby sister has this same problem... Daddy bought her a blue studio 5.0 S ll ... It worked for a little over two weeks and shut down... Daddy bought a new battery for my sister and yet it don't work .. Its really unfair please help us get back a phone for my sister or a refund ... This phone was purchased at bmobile in princes town at JDS super center... Cost price $1000.00 plus the battery $175.00 .. Help needed...
This phone is p-ing me off so bad right and for the last week. My problem with this phone has happened more than once now. A little message pops up saying "unfortunately, google play has stopped." "unfortunately, OneDrive has stopped." "Unfortunately, the process com.google.process.gapps has stopped." Unfortunately Picasa uploader has stopped." and it says that for several other apps on my phone, and one being setting, and Launcher(opens apps an everything else). It also likes to freeze one every now and then, So someone please tell me what to do.? I've tried resting, rebooting, and turning it off &on. This happens none stop, so I barely get to even use my phone like I need. It's hard to text or call anyone when those messages keep popping up right in the middle of the screen every second. I really don't want to have to buy a new phone, but its making me mad enough that I might because I can not stand this any long. AND THE SPACE ON IT SUCK!
I have had this nice phone for about a year, though providers in Uganda do not use W-CDMA 2100 for 3G, i am having a good time using 2G. The phone is super nice for that price! YES!!!!
Yo I've had this phone for a good year & and half now and it has been so much better than the lot of other phones I've looked at in this price range. I haven't had any trouble with it besides running out of space for apps but the camera is is good, if i had any issues with the design, like if I didn't like it, I'd just download an app to make it look better. No biggie. I haven't had any issues I couldn't fix.
This phone stinks!!! It won't let people leave a voice mail, i have almost nothing on it yet the storage is "too full" to download most apps. I can't seem to get my pictures off of it and onto my computer. Texting is horrid, it keeps dropping the area code, then I have to resend, there is no instruction booklet, and I cannot find anything on the web to help only reviews! My review...buy something else!
Don't know why am not able to download anything from play store cause I have a 4g SD card with only a few song and pictures and its telling me I don't have enough space to do so I can't even update my apps
@sankar sorry but u will not get 3g on your blu studio sii as the d572a supports only 3g as from 800 to 1800 and most service providers use the more preferred 850 to 2100... u should have bought d572i version of it instead...i have already gotten used to using mine with wifi and edge 😢 cheers!!
toni, 22 Nov 2014you need more RAM. some games no working good for the poor RAm in this phone (500mb) .i increased my ram to 3 gb. u can root it using an app called Framaroot. the download RamExpander. works great
SANKAR, 04 Feb 2015 i had blu studio 5.0 sii d572a. it is not working with 3g speed. even i have changed the sim ... morethe 4g works. it may not label as 4g but it is. i have metro pcs and when my 4g data runs out and i start using 3g i can tell a huge difference in speed
JasonX, 29 Jan 2015Did you try putting sim in slot 1?yes. i tried both the slots.
i had blu studio 5.0 sii d572a. it is not working with 3g speed. even i have changed the sim in both the slots. the first slot noted by gsm/wcdma and the second slot noted as gsm. i have idea sim and it supporting 3g. (i tried with samsung fame gts6812, it works ok by 3g). but in my blu studio it is not working. even i have selected the sim to 3g, searching the network mode manually and all the service provier (ie) airtel, aircel, vadafone, tata docomo etc., are shown only 2g. i tried the apn settings correctly by manually with the use of new apn setting. but no improvement.
anybody can give me a solution to get 3g speed in my blu studio 5.0 sii, d572a
i got blu studio 5.0 sii recently. it is not working with 3g speed. itried with idea, airtel and aircel sims. i have tried by selecting the network operator by manually but all the network shows only 2g. i have changed the mode to gsm/wcdma and gsm only. but only 2g is working.
any one can reply and give the right solution. in my area 3g is available.
I'm looking into buying this phone, how is the battery life? My iPhone dies SOO fast.
I got the cell phone, just for one reason, in all reviews including here, it says it has a gyroscope, which it seems it doesn´t have, I installed sensor kinetics and it says no gyroscope found on the phone. SO FOR THE RECORD: THIS CELL PHONE DOES NOT HAVE GYROSCOPE SENSOR
