Rating: 5/5Finally, a low cost alternative to a Galaxy Note!
This review is from: BLU Life View L110a Unlocked GSM Dual-SIM Android Cell Phone - Blue
Pros: Huge bright and colorful screen, fast enough for everything short of full bore gaming, great build quality, Gorilla Glass 2, great battery life, plenty of accessories available, upgrade to KitKat available soon, smooth operation, works at 4G(H+)speeds on T-Mobile's refarmed 9000 band in many major cities, did I mention the Huge screen??
Cons: One--no micro sd slot, but I knew that going in. You will need a good cloud service for this one.
Other Thoughts: This phone really surprised me with it's great build quality and snappy performance, especially for the $230.00 price. It has a big, beautiful 5.7" 720p HD IPS screen that is truly nice to look at at any angle.
The Mediatek processor is strong, with almost no lag at all, and the version of android it uses(4.2.1)works great. Blu has confirmed that an upgrade to 4.4 KitKat is coming in May of 2014 for all Life series phones, and that just adds to this phones already huge value.
If you need a bigger screen and good performance, and don't have much cash, this is the phone for you. it hit's all the right targets(battery life, true HD, build quality)and is a great bargain to boot. Highly recommended!
By the way, if you live in one of the areas that T-Mobile refarmed for expanded 3G/4G on their 9000 band(currently over 37 cities and counting), this phone can handle "H" and "H+"(3G/4G) speeds just fine. In NYC where I'm at, I get "H+" speeds everywhere I go, good on ya T-Mobile :-)
