This company does nothing but lie about updates...I was promised an update...Where? When? oh wait last year I was supposed to get Lollipop....I hate this companies practices.

The Studio Energy has a built in non-removable battery. The specs should be updated to reflect that. I bought one assuming I could replace it - but you can't. All batteries eventually fail and need to be replaced I will have to replace the entire phone when this happens. I am not happy.
Good phones, great battery! I fully charged it when I got it, but had to wait a week to get microSIM card. That week, messing w/ camera, tweaking settings & getting familiar w/ it, by battery only dropped to 96%. Stayed that way for a day. Force stopping and/or disabling unused Apps is somewhat limited, sucks, cause it's the biggest thing you can do to maximize battery life. A little lag sometimes is not a big trade-off for not having to charge it all the time.
Blu Phones (at least all I have had) don't accept EXFAT formatted 64GB SD cards only FAT32, 32GB SD cards so you'll never get "up to" 64 GB with a micro SD card until they fix the OS. Maybe by the time the get to the "X" OS's.

This phone is amazing. I got mines today. Its a bit laggy, don't expect lightening speed from this phone but it keeps up a bit. Both camera are superb in proper lighting. The battery does as it says.... Overall... U shud get. Would like lollipop update!
This phone is basically Gionee Marathon M3, but will a slightly lower specification in case of Cameras etc. mainboard is the same. You can check Gionee M3 lollipop updates (latest is Gionee_M3_0202_T8245 or T8295 or Gionee_M3_0202_T8310) and install. But, only 1.80GB free space as rest is taken by the system. But, original firmware number 8195 also is very good.

My son, a junior engineering student, and I both bought the Studio Energy in April 2015. And, both of us love it. It's fast. It does everything we needed or expected it to. The battery lasts a full week for me, not quite a long for my son ... love that. And, the icing on the cake is, it's made in the U.S.A. Thanks to gsmarena.com for it's objective ratings and comparisons. Hugely helpful.
quietoldtexan, 27 Oct 2015Disappointing that BLU failed to honor its OS upgrade. We call that Deceptive Trade Practice ... moreTotally agree. Now Blu came out with the Blu Energy "2", which does have lollipop. So to get the upgrade you need to buy a new phone. Deceptive trade practices indeed.
