So I am not the original purchaser this phone went to...I had to order mine elsewhere due to lack of stock AFTER my honey picked and ordered this phone...i was super jealous and in turn returned my choice and ordered my own...lol love all about it, its our first smartphone, and so easy to use, unlocked so we were able to slip our current sim cards in, (which i could not do with my first choice) also there is an option for a second sim card! Who knew? or am i so new to this i sound dumb...ha ha who cares! We still only pay $60 bucks monthly for our service, BOTH PHONES together!...of course we will soon enough upgrade our data plans, but find it not necessary quite yet...i for one feel if you have the net at home take your face out of your phone and engage with your family! I also hate co workers that cant leave phones alone! So to sum it up, I hate to say he was right...I love this phone!

The phone worked great. It didn't meet my expectation because even though this phone is a gsm unlocked phone, the data plan would not connect with our Consumer Cellular plan.

I was excited to receive my phone. That excitement slowly turned to disappointment. First, the volume is very very low. I have downloaded volume boosters but volume is no better. The user's manual is not informative at all. No usable information for phone features. As I talk on the phone, the phone goes in/out; I miss parts of my conversations and have to ask other party to repeat. I have had the service provider to trouble shoot and they determined it to be the phone. I contacted Blu and they have provided instructions that will wipe the phone clean of all data, pictures and video but is not guaranteed to fix the problem. Also the battery doesn't last as long as I expected. The phone looks nice but has many flaws. I do like that it came with a screen protector and a case. If not for the listed issues, I would probably love this phone.

I seen this phone, that a family member had and I really like it. The first one that I ordered was to big. So I ordered a smaller one. I am still setting it up. The colors on the screen are great.
