It sounds like you are jealous about something. If a company is willing to forgo marketing to give a high value product....well...ok, it seems perfect. So is there a catch?

I have the BLU vivo 4 and I think the octacore makes up for the lack of ram, but still would like both.
LoL Samsung is thinking on make an mid-ranged devices since they CAN'T get great numbers over flagship phones sales, and people want and ask for more hardware, but people dont pay for premium ones like mid or low ones...so, is better have money over low priced ones than just tiny number on expensive ones....
I have LoL over people that ask high hardware specs and just a bunch of nerd s get em....
Is a 2gb ram Chip going to drastically reduce their Profits? It's not even the Chips full price, only a couple of Cents difference between the 1gb and 2gb
That is a list of flop phones.
The reqd specs are 3gb ram octa core+5000 mah.
That would certainly make some sense.
I agree. anything below 2 gigs of RAM won't get into hands. ONLY 2+!!! (and 13 MP camera rear.)
512 Mb RAM? I am never gonna get any Android phone without 2 Gb of RAM. And I suggest no one else get them too.

BLU mostly is re-branding company so they put their brand name stamps on phones bought in bulk from OEMs. As Netherlands have three main mobile phone operators and other communication service providers – KPN, T-Mobile Netherlands and Vodafone Netherlands. They use GSM900 and GSM1800 frequency bands to provide mobile phone communications (2G) to their subscribers and 2100MHz band as the main frequency range for 3G services, so you'll be able to use BLU Vivo Air in your area.
BLU since ever maintains most of its devices chained to the Jelly Bean, including my flagship Life Pure XL. So, like was the KitKat some months ago, Lollipop is just another empty promise. Buy at your own risk, and be prepared for a long marriage with the KitKat.
Renns, 07 Jan 2015Also, does someone know the exact measurements of the BLU Vivo Air? The BLU Vivo Air is essentially the same phone as Gionee Elife S5.1. It measures 139.8 x 67.4 x 5.2 mm (5.50 x 2.65 x 0.20 in). You can find more details here: http://m.gsmarena.com/gionee_elife_s5_1-6540.php
mm , these phones are really affordable mid.range specs at a low price , i'm impressed with blu Air . Waiting
Actually at 200$ I do fancy almost all of these mobiles. I love thin phones so maybe I'll import an BLUE Vivo Air.
Here's my question: is it even possible to use these phones in Europe? I live in the Netherlands, so will I be able to make phonecalls and use 3G mobile internet?
