1 out of 5 eggsPoor quality phone despite the price.

Pros: Unlocked and Dual SIM. PERIOD.

Cons: Very cheap build quality and construction, even when compared with other low-end phones. Horrible sound quality.

Other Thoughts: I was excited when I discovered BLU phones. I thought the company was headed in the right direction and was really excited by this range of unlocked, dual SIM phones. I'm not one to expect much for a low cost phone and so I had very low expectations. The reality, however, was far worse than my expectations. This is not my first experience with low-end to midrange BLU products. I have made the embarrassing mistake of recommending them to people who desired an unlocked dual SIM phone. Some of these individuals had very few requirements and expectations, so I figured it might be a good low cost option. After working with a few models I can honestly say there is no way I would recommend them to anyone anymore. Perhaps if you are cut off from all forms of communication and only have this phone lying around, only then it may be useful and even then most likely you'd be hard pressed to effectively communicate with it. Compared to other low-end cheap mobile phones, so far I have found low-end BLU phones to be garbage. And I don't make this assessment lightly.

I was interested in exploring the higher end BLU Android models once upon a time, but I don't think I'll risk my or anyone else's money at this point.

This is probably the worst review I've given a product anywhere since I started buying on-line in the early 90s. Again, I expect next to nothing for a phone costing near $20. But I feel it's not worth it. I just feel compelled to put one out there so as to warn buyers and hopefully avoid disappointment. The reviews I have seen out there seemed to be ok... So I felt I had to chime in. Though it's cheap, you might not even end up using it.
