i enjoyed the studio7 but no service center in Nigeria i was using it one night it just snort down itself since then the so call service center in the country said they don't have the software to work on it pls i need your help for fixing my set.
This will be the best, most comprehensive report you will read about this phone. The phone is unusable for most people. I am a lawyer and bought it for productivity more than one year ago when it first shipped, to keep business calls separate from pleasure calls. I didn't expect much for the price. I got even less! However, I continue to use it because I like the big screen and don't want to squint my eyes trying to read things on anything smaller.
It is unable to open the internet and do anything without substantial lag; forget about using more than one or maximum two apps at once. It had an operating system bug upon release that is fixed now that made it reboot several times per day. It no longer does that.
It is unable to take a call when trying to multitask with two or more apps open; by the time the phone accepts the call, the caller has hung up or your voicemail has answered. It frequently dials by itself when opening the phone book to look for someone. When switching apps or opening an app, or opening the dialer -- opening anything for that matter, the screen goes black for about 15 seconds. If you want to use this phone, you must be very, very patient.
Although it is what I would consider an awful phone with an awful camera that cannot capture anything with less than two seconds' notice (you press the photo capture button and two seconds later it takes the photo), the big screen is attractive to me, as is the unique ability (among today's dual SIM phones) to have a separate memory slot in addition to the two SIM card slots. The battery is horrible and will not last a full day with use. Plan to use it very modestly with a lot of idle time to last from dawn until midnight.
I would not recommend buying this phone and have been intently waiting for something higher-end to arrive in the marketplace; the main two problems are the Mediatek chip and the 1GB of internal memory. Eventually, something in 2017 or 2018 will replace this outdated piece of garbage. But, I would stay away from Blu. It is a lying con artist. When I repeatedly called it about the OS bug that it eventually remedied, it told me to do a system reset and hope for the best -- and that it was not Blu's problem. I refused to do that, since I had installed only four apps -- all top-notch productivity software like MS Office and WeChat. What Blu did by passing the buck is not honorable or honest customer service. I will not buy Blu again because of what I have read about its "passing the buck" tactics.
It's Kool Everyone One Asks If That Is A Phone Or Says It's Huge, Which I Reply "That's What She Said..." The Phone Is OK But Turns Into A Lagging Turd After A Month Or Two... Don't Buy One!!!

Pro 7" screen is great (only good thing about phone)
Cons SLOW processor, becomes UNRESPONSIVE when multi-tasking. If you want fast, you will absolutely HATE this phone. Cannot even answer incoming phone calls when running another app (example, playing music). Reboots spontaneously. I regret buying it. Buyer Beware!!!

I can make calls , take photos , use SKYPE and Whatsup and I am able to write easily text and sms.
For 120$ this phone has been awesome. Giant screen, good camera, added sd card and haven't even used it. Sure there are glitches but all so minor it is definitely worth the money. This is actually my second BLU phone and I don't see any reason to not continue with another when need be.
This phone only works for 2 months and after that it is problems. Waste of time with numerous issues.
Actually, I'm thinking it's more related to the 1GB of RAM... REALLY would have been nice if they would have built this with 2gb's of RAM... I would have paid an extra $15 for that option...

Being a dual sim phone.Then regs for each number and service provider is different.2G is default for one and everything works well at top speed on the same setting combo 2G/3G/4G/LTE auto(for2ndnum).Such is life.
