5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Android phone for the price

Pros: Fast processor, crispy clear display, dual SIMM slots, tons of storage.

Cons: None I could find so far.

Other Thoughts: I just read about Blu right before I order the phone.
It seems like it's a relatively new company trying to get its share in the wildly competitive cell phone market.
Their philosophy is that smart phones shouldn't be as expensive as they are and they are doing something about it. I wish them the best and I hope that they last.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Brainer!

Pros: Excellent display
Well made device
Easily rooted (Framaroot on XDA)
Very thin
Comes with everything you need (ear buds, case, screen protector, charger etc)
Decent amount of ram
Snappy processor
Nice battery life
Expandable storage on top of 16GB on board
Call quality
Reception overall

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I own a Nexus 5 and that is what I use daily. I managed to hulk smash my previous one and didn't have anything decent while I waited for a replacement. I like to have something to tinker with anyway. I've been watching Blu progress with their modestly priced devices and of course was skeptical. I purchased a very cheap Blu candy bar phone for my mom and was impressed with it because of build quality and ease of use. I finally came across the Life Play X and liked the specs. I cannot stress enough how nice of a phone this really is.
The build quality is truly impressive and the display is really as nice and or nicer than a lot of more expensive and competitively priced devices.
Sound quality is good from the speaker and call quality is good. The camera takes good pictures and is pretty fast as well
Phone is snappy and battery is as good as most other devices as well.
Don't expect latest and greatest performance. You have to remind yourself that this is a budget priced device that actually in my opinion exceeds budget expectations.
I have nothing bad to say about this purchase. I think for the money you can't get any better than this.
The device doesn't feel cheap at all in the hand in fact it feels quite like a premium device.
It isn't going to perform like a G2 or N5 or HTC One but the price point is way different from those devices.
Rooted it easily with framaroot and install xposed framework and works like a charm
If you are in the market for a good device that is budget friendly and easily rooted then this is the device for you.
There aren't really any custom ROMs for it but if you're like me the stock experience with some xposed modules will work just fine for you.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing bargain

Pros: Thin, light, powerful, bright, decent battery life, good cameras. Very lightly bloated with apps we don't need. Comes with screen protector in place and a nice rubbery protective case (which I don't use cuz I like to show off it's thinness). Everything about this phone is a pro.

Cons: Nothing really available on xda as far as ROM's go, but I did manage to root it (Framaroot 1.9.1)

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a Samsung Rugby Pro (1.5ghz dual, 1GB, 4") which isn't a bad phone at all, yet the difference is night and day. This phone is so much faster and better to look at (bigger brighter screen). It feels nice in your hand and your pocket because it's so thin. Even though it's 4.7 inches compared to 4, it uses less pocket space cuz it's half as thick. Performance and feature-wise, I would put this up against any phone out there. Not saying it's the best, but it's probably the best phone you can get for less than twice its price, and it would not be shamed by any phone, including the latest and greatest..
