08/05/2015: keep in mind this review is only my initial impressions…
So my shiny new BLU android arrived today, right on time from good old Amazon. The price was right and the specs were good and I was rather surprised with what came in the package for a mere $79.95.
Below is a list of what I received…
- a 5-inch Android with KitKat 4.4 that I immediately upgraded to Android 5.0 Lollipop. With 8 gb internal and a Micro-SD card slot, 2 gb front camera and 8-GB rear camera and a 1.3 GHz Quad core processor.
- a handy dandy back protector
- the usual charger
- the usual owner’s manual
- a set of headphones
- a screen protector
The upgrade went flawlessly. The screen looks decent and it is a dual sim card phone. (I am not exactly clear on why I would want one, but hell, it is a dual sim!)
What I know so far. The WiFi screams at 135 mb/s on my wireless router. The updates work great from the mfg. There is NOT a crap-load of mfg software installed by the mfg, which is always good!
What I don’t know…battery life and phone calls, because I still have to get a sim card for this thing from AT&T so I can switch from my horrible flip phone back to wondrous Android nirvana.
update – 08/06/2015 : the phone works just fine. Apps respond rather quickly and both WiFi and 4G data are fast. For the price this one is a winner.
