That shouldn't happen, and I'm guessing it hasn't to the vast majority of those 777 and other buyers, but from what I can find the touch panels on phones with AMOLED are susceptible to this, i.e., the part - touch panel? - behind the outer screen. Blue sells a touch panel replacement for $52 on Amazon, if that's it. Samsung has had the same problem with some of their AMOLED phones (and maybe had some kind of recall or exchange). Blu has apparently been slow to recognize the issue. I guess the moral is either to get a full case or not pocket it (why one would risk a back pocket for a phone is beyond me). Dropping anything of this kind is always a crap shoot, because it depends on how it hits even more than the surface it lands on.

Anthony, 10 Mar 2015Excellent !!! Works well in Trinidad & Tobago ... Great Design and quality camera ....does it have LED notification light?
This $180 phone is crap made by low-quality parts. The screen is broke so easily with a drop from 1 foot high or simply when putting in your pocket. Check in internet for this issue and you will be surprised so many people have this issue even though they take care of the phone well. BLU will ask you to pay $125 to fix, this is their FINAL price, no less.
Also, the sensitivity of the touch screen is poor, don't expect to high responsive touch screen like iPhone or Samsung Galaxy, you may have to touch 2 or 3 times to make it work.
Even though the camera is 8MP, the quality of the photo is worse than photo taken by my iPhone 4S camera.
Battery doesn't last long too. I had to charge it everyday.
BLU may have spent bunch of money to promote and advertise this phone in internet, but it's still a crap.
This is a great phone, I have been using it for about a week as my daily phone. It has a great price $200 off contract. With that price you get a very premium device for a low price. It has a great camera, 8MP at its back and 5MP at its frontfront, both of them take very nice and detailed pictures. As every phone on the market it has its pros and cons, which I am going to tell you in this post before you buy this phone.
-It has pretty standard battery life, it lasts about 8 hours with heavy use, but it will last all day long if you know how to manage it
-Another con is that because it is so thin (5.1mm thik) the had to kill the micro SD slot and you only get 16GB of internal storage.
-I think that the loud speaker could have been a little bit better, but overall, it performs quite well.
-It has a great front and rear camera, that is a great advantage of this phone.
-It has a great playback quality, its HD 720p.
-Premium felling, it is made of Gorilla Glass 3 on both sides, front and back. And it has an aluminium frame in the middle of them. So once again, the Blu Vivo Air is a premium smartphone for a budget price.
-It really comes with everything you need. What I want to say with this is that you get a silicone case, a screen protector and all the accessories.
-This is a very customisable phone.
So, in my opinion this is a great phone. The best on its price range. I give this phone 8.7/10. It is not perfect, but it is the best of its category.
I've had this phone for a while. Overall, I'm highly impressed by its capabilities. One thing I've noticed is that while there is 16 GBs of extra space, some apps that take up larger amounts of space refuse to be moved to expanded storage, which is a developer-side issue (I'm looking directly at YOU, Facebook.) The other issue is that with internal apps like Gmail, which stores copies of your emails on your phone, will also gradually take up space as it piles up more and more, which can lead to storage space errors and a constant reminder from the phone to free up space so other apps will start working correctly again (I didn't necessarily have this problem with other phones, but I also wasn't as stupid with downloading all kinds of apps with them, either.)
I give it a solid 8/10.
Its a great phone, is not dual but its ok, have good cameras and runs awesome, never get stuck
