This review is from: Blu Studio 5.3II D550i 4 GB ROM, 512 MB RAM Black Unlocked Dual SIM Cell Phone 5.3"
Pros: Android Device Jellybean 4,2, good battery life. What can I say, it's Jelly Bean which at the time of this writing is the latest version. No bloatware and no problems activating it on T-Mobiles network.
Cons: Can not Root at this time and no alternative Firmware. No matter what setting the screen will go dim in about 10 seconds unless you touch it no matter what your doing. Camera is like every other Android Camera, lacking of character and sloppy.
Music skips to next track without provocation.
Constantly shuts off Sim Card and asks me if I want to restart it. Changes Audio profile randomly. Re adds duplicate contacts after I delete them. Larger than normal screen which I thought I could use Samsung Note accessories but Camera is different so I have to buy a specialty case. Touch screen is choppy at times
Blu, from what I can tell, has zero support for their products and their website has been dormant since I have known of them. No updates or fixes for this phone.
Other Thoughts: Some of these issues I suspect are from Android Software which I find annoying and not doing the simplest of jobs.
Other than the price I find no reason to buy Blu products until they support them like any other smartphone company.
