I started using it yesterday....upgrading from Lenovo S898t Golden Warrior , which I loved just could'nt get an upgrade to Android 5.0 or 5.1. The XL is great so far but......I like to be able to find repair parts just in case, and I cant find the digitizer/LCD for it. Checked Bluphoneparts.com , Ebay and Amazon and NO DEAL. I know you get what you pay for and its a 2016 phone but for $150U$ , they need to make parts available. If they make the LCD available for purchase,I would rate this phone a 9/10 for its value for dollar aspect performance,graphics,and camera...
I want to buy this phone in my country. Is it available for Bangladesh???

Incredible phone! Great performance, good camera and AMAZING battery and screen. Really worths twice the price it is!
Andrew R, 27 Jun 2016The bad list is pretty short considering the price, but... Bluetooth is totally worthless for ... moreWTF are you TALKING about!?!?!?!
I've had my BlueTooth headphones connected to my phone, which was in the Basement, and able to go to the first floor, do dishes, vacum, go out and get the mail, never have any problems with bluetooth like you speak of. I think you're either crazy or your headphones have been stepped on by your boyfriend.
Instead of investing in multiple usb-c cables, just buy adapters from amazon. They fit over mini-usb -- the standard android charging cables. Worth it.
It could be because of usb type c but this phone got crazy hot and now no longer charges. Sending it in to see if they'll replace it under warranty.
The bad list is pretty short considering the price, but... Bluetooth is totally worthless for audio streaming unless you lay your phone perfectly still next to whatever it is paired with, and don't even think of turning on a fan in the same room.
The speaker is pretty bad, and the camera isn't nearly as good as it could be, but those are likely on par with other devices near this price.
Otherwise, this is a fantastic looking phone with a surprisingly good looking screen and decently smooth operation. The quick settings menu on the bottom is a welcome change and
All in all, I completely get the camera and the speaker, but I see no reason at all why the Bluetooth should be so horrible. If you're not a Bluetooth person, though, I'm not sure you'll find a better phone at this price.

But then again it's a budget phone. Can't really expect more...
John_1, 06 Feb 2016Blu is behind the times. They mishmosh their phones so much. They have poor support and their ... moreI agree... BLU has relatively poor support for software updates.
Then again they produce budget phones with not enough resources and manpower in their company for software development. They do not have a budget like the Apples and Samsungs.
desire , 02 Feb 2016what's the WIFI connectivity?
Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n ?Yes and only 2.4 GHz support.
No support for 5 Ghz.
It's a budget phone so no AC wifi...
This phone does NOT seem to a support T-Mobile nor AT&Ts VoLTE and WiFi Calling features even though it offers Band 12 and 17.
Those features are seemed to be reserved for the big name smartphones such as the Apples, HTCs, Samsungs or LGs as they are likely to be "officially certified" by such mobile phone carriers.
Then again what do you expect from a $149 USD budget smartphone.
Since BLU phones are unlocked and most are Dual-SIM it is unlikely that GSM/LTE providers such as AT&T or T-Mobile would make a contract with them.
