4 out of 5 eggsBlu Dash 4.0 D270a Black 3G Unlocked Dual SIM Cell Phone

This review is from: Blu Dash 4.0 D270a Black 3G Unlocked Dual SIM Cell Phone

Pros: Got it on sale and good enough for my use. Love the unlock and dual sim .Used it out of the USA already. and been happy with it.

Cons: Sometime the touch screen is slow to respond or miss the mark with my touch but not always. not so much of a big deal for me. Maybe I just have thick fingers. lol

Other Thoughts: So far I've been happy with it after replacing my flip phone. I don't have data yet as I'm still researching for the cheapest plan. Can't really complain too much since I got it for $80.

4 out of 5 eggsGood phone, bad camera.

This review is from: Blu Dash 4.0 D270a Black 3G Unlocked Dual SIM Cell Phone

Pros: - Excellent screen brightness and resolution.
- WiFi N and 3G.
- Dual cameras with LED flash, one of them capable of 720p recording.
- Loud speaker.
- Dual SIMs.
- Excellent battery life.
- Comes with a case and a screen protector.
- Android 4.2.2 for less than 100.
- Android apps work well.

Cons: - Camera is not good at all. The pictures are grainy, and have some kind of effect applied even though the settings say no effects should be applied.
- 3G with ATT requires contacting ATT.

Other Thoughts: If you do not need 4G, this device cannot be beat as far as price and features are concerned. I will likely buy BLU again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Unlocked GSM Phone

This review is from: Blu Dash 4.0 D270a Black 3G Unlocked Dual SIM Cell Phone

Pros: Simple SIM card transfer plus a second SIM slot if you travel or want a backup provider.
Built in GPS receiver. Browser supports Adobe Flash.
Actually they are shipping the D271a with Jellybean 4.2.2 if you order one (which I received but no guarantee of that).
This phone also works with a provider like Family Mobile which uses T-Mobile.

The phone will support up to a 64GB micro SD card even though it states 32GB. Make sure to create folders on your SD card called Music, Movies, Pictures, etc just like on the main phones memory.

Cons: Do not buy if you are on Verizon or Sprint as those systems are CDMA based even if you have a SIM card for them. Also many phones are not SIM card based and locked internally to your provider.

This is not a 4G phone (No LTE). But I get better speeds on 3G because of my location and towers.

Other Thoughts: Bought for $79 on a Newegg Shell Shocker deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Phone!

This review is from: Blu Dash 4.0 D270a Black 3G Unlocked Dual SIM Cell Phone

Pros: So far I am very happy with this phone! It is responsive, and everything works as expected. I do recommend that you use an SDHC card, you'll need the extra 32GB of memory. It feels like a phone 3 times it's price. Came with JellyBean (Android 4.1) installed!

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsNice phone

This review is from: Blu Dash 4.0 D270a Black 3G Unlocked Dual SIM Cell Phone

Pros: Came with screen protector and rubberized over case

Cons: Fingers do not slide well on screen

Other Thoughts: I bought this phone as a temp phone while I try out flashing my GT-I9000 to kitkat. So far, I am impressed with it. Ring is clear, the device is easy to use. I am still trying to locate some settings, but very nice. I got more than I expected for the price.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with Net10

This review is from: Blu Dash 4.0 D270a Black 3G Unlocked Dual SIM Cell Phone

Pros: I was replacing a $50 phone that I got at Target that was anything but a SmartPhone. Having never owned a real SmartPhone, I am impressed with this device. I only have the UnSmartPhone to compare it to though. I ordered a T-Mobile SIM Card from Net10 and was able to get this up and going with minimal effort. SIM card installation and MicroSD card installation was easy. The wife is happy (I bought this for her) so Happy Wife = Happy Life.

Cons: It does reboot randomly every few days but it is more of an annoyance than anything. This is the only reason I took off a star on the review. The UnSmartPhone I had did that too so I am used to this "feature".

Other Thoughts: I got this for $80 when this came up on the NewEgg Shell Shocker. I happened to have seen this device (refurbished) on Woot recently so I had already done the homework on if this would work with our Net10 service.

3 out of 5 eggsBLU

This review is from: Blu Dash 4.0 D270a Black 3G Unlocked Dual SIM Cell Phone

Pros: got this phone, for a great price, i see has now almost doubled. and have had no real issues with it so far. not like the reviews that others have given. like all phone has useless apps on it you cant remove easily only issue i have is noted in the cons.

Cons: the camera is a good 5mp and takes a very nice picture with proper lighting. but if you need the flash on it. forget it. low power not bright at all. and the timing is off with the shutter of the camera. the flash is so bad even with the flashlight app the screen puts out more light that the flash does.

Other Thoughts: this was a great deal at 89.00 but at 149. there are better phones.
