This review is from: BLU Vivo 4.3 Black Unlocked Phone w/ 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus Display / Dual SIM 3G 850/2100 / Dual Core 1GHz Processor / Android 4.0 ICS / 8 MP Camera
Pros: I don't know where to begin. This phone exceeded my expectations and was quite cheap. I played a multitude of various games on this phone and they were 100% smooth.
The screen is the most beautiful screen I have ever seen. Keep in mind this is not LCD but rather LED. The contrast is very very good. It looks as if everything on the screen was drawn with ink. If you get this phone, then you will understand what I mean. The viewing angle seems to reach as far as I can tilt the screen.
The front and rear camera are very nice. Works well with Skype video calls. And the pictures I have taken are so clear.
I bought this one by accident as I meant to purchase the one with the 1900 UMTS.(They have 2 versions) I use an AT&T straight talk SIM card and I get 3G/H with the 850 alone so it's not a big deal. I tested it in Virginia, Hawaii, Guam, Detroit and the Philippines and I was getting speeds at or above 3G on various networks so this phone is quite compatible. Technically though if you use T-Mobile's network you will at least have to get the Vivo 4.3 that has the UMTS 1900. Make sure T-mobile switched to 1900 in your area first or you will be stuck with 2G.
Everything about this phone is solid and the price is right.
Other Thoughts: Blu also has a non HD version of the Blu Quattro 4.5 D440. That one is priced only slightly higher than this phone. I recommend you do research and see if you might want that one instead. The Blu Quattro 4.5 D440 is LCD and not LED like this phone so look into that as well. To me it may be a good trade off for the extra ram and quad core processor. Moreover, the Quattro is 100% compatible with both AT&T and T-Mobile 3G/H. But the LED screen on this one is sooooo good. Good luck with your decision.
