4 out of 5 eggsWorks for me.

Pros: Nice clear and bright screen. Operates smoothly and quickly and jelly bean is real nice to use. After 2 months of use I'm pleased with phone. Battery seems to last all day for me and pictures are great. I bought 2 phones for xmas 2013, me and wife and we really like them. Phone comes with nice rubbery cover and no scratch screen glass cover shield. With a 5" screen, I like to read more and viewing email is easy etc.. This phone costs 1/4 of the big named phones do and seems to work as good as any I've tried.

Cons: This is a big phone and a little heavy to carry in your shirt pocket. I found a nice carry wallet for wife's phone online and she's happy now.

Other Thoughts: This phone is UN LOCKED and I had a few problems at first getting it set up to use on Consumer Cellular service, took 4 calls to them to get a tech who knew how to help me set up the phones. Also, tech help from BLU was a joke as I never was able to talk to one. I spent 2 hours on hold over 2 calls and got no one. So far this phone has been good for me and wife is happy. I'd buy again.

Pros: -Large screen size

Cons: - My product had the following flaws, informed to BLU CCR within 10 days :
*battery life < half advertised
*losses wifi connection randomly, without a change in the environment
*shuts-off and restarts atleast once/24hrs ( that I have noted) , for no apparent reason
*gets extremely warm ( esp while being recharged)

THEIR RESPONSE :

5 out of 5 eggsBlu Studio 5.0 S Review

Pros: After using the Blu Studio 5.0 S a few days I would have to give it a high rating of 8 out of 10. The phone has worked great with no reason to restart. I've used phone, messaging, downloaded a number of apps to set it up the way I want it with no problems. Based on the fact the price is half of a Galaxy S3 with similar specs, it should rate a 10, but there are a few major design flaws and features missing on the operating system.

I checked the Blu Studio 5.0 S specs against a number of phones to find this phone is the best value for the money. I purchased mine from NewEgg.com for $170 shipping included. I wish they had sent regular USPS, but they used UPS who let it sit for 3 days before moving it along. I ordered another package on the same day that shipped USPS that arrived in 4 days. Other than that, NewEgg has been a good company to work with.
Reviews on the Blu Studio 5.0 S also centered on viewing quality. The screen is clear and well defined. I can't see any pixel points with my glasses on. I wonder why graphics quality seems to be so important. Those of us over 40 will hardly notice a difference while the younger group spending a lot of time starring at phone screens will soon loose their perfect sight. It just doesn't seem worth an extra $100 to go to the top of the line screens these days. Let's face it, what are you going to watch a movie on? A 5 inch screen or the big screen TV? Once again evidence phones are marketed to the younger crowd.

Processing speed is another important issue. This phone comes with 1GB RAM, which is why I chose to spend the extra $40. My old phone had only a half gig and always ran out of memory. So far I have not seen that problem while downloading a number of apps and switching between them. The Blu Studio 5.0 S claims it comes with 4GB of ROM, the memory inside the phone. I can't see it. The memory app in the phone shows two 1.4GB memories on the phone. Not sure why it shows 2 of them, but that only adds up to 2.8GB. Anyone care to explain what happened to the other 1.2 GB? One came with 1Gb available (the rest is filled with preintalled apps and the operating system) the other has 1.38GB available. The SD card I installed is 16GB. The app shows it as a 14.98GB card. Not sure why everything seems to loose a GB.

The Blu Studio 5.0 S comes with a Quad-Core 1.2GHz processor. Not sure what the quad core is but the processing speed is fast. I downloaded and installed a 1.4GB racing game that operated properly. Watched a few minutes of a movie on YouTube and viewed a number of websites I use for Real Estate. I found out with the new OS and processing speed I get the real Internet on the phone instead of a phone knock off site missing half the information. I'm happy because everything is where I remember it. The Internet on the phone seems as fast as on my PC and laptop. The pinch zoom works great. So far I've only used the phone on WIFI and not the phone system but I am not a real Internet user on th

Cons: One of the details I disagree with the few reviews I watched in the Blu Studio 5.0 S is the styling. My other phones came with a really nice rubber coating that seemed to stick to the dash board of a car at a 45 degree angle. Well until you moved. The Blu Studio 5.0 S has a super polished finish that in fact makes if slippery. This is a big phone that fits in your hand, but let's face it, this phone is marketing for kids who most likely have parents pay for their phones. The phone is so thin it feels like it'll shatter if you drop it or break in half if you put it in the rear pocket and sit down. Okay, thin is in and a thin phone is nice. It is a wide phone that'll fit in the average hand, but all the polished surfaces make it fearful to hold. The Blu Studio 5.0 S comes with a silicon rear cover that fits like a glove and has a textured surface. Still a bit slippery, but not as bad as the polished surface. Blu, please go back to the rubber coating other companies use to give your phones a sense of security when they are in hand.

I'm 56 years old and been around computers since DOS. I haven't been able to figure out Anroid programming but I see a few set backs in this Anroid 4 series. There are a few programs I would like to delete but this is not like Windows on a PC where I can find a way to get rid or just about any file. The provider you choose has a lot to do with the operating system. My old provider T-Mobile loaded the old phone up with so many programs and advertising it filled up the 1GB of memory, rendering the phone useless. I switched over to Pure Talk and so far they have not added a thing. The phone comes with a few programs. I've been able to delete most of them. A few want to hang on for dear life. It's impossible to turn off Google Play. I don't like that type of control, but I guess we're stuck with it. I use an app to kill other programs running and they keep restarting on their own. There has to be a fix for that. The software problems on the Android system killed one star.
The Blu Studio 5.0 S does come with a few design flaws. For one, the SD card slot. The way its designed, you can force a card in, but lots of luck on getting it out. Make sure you put in a card large enough to stick with. I read about problems the Blu Studio 5.0 S has reading SD cards. Mine didn't show the SD card at first. I couldn't get the SD card out, but after I took out the battery and restarted the phone, it saw the card. The lower buttons are also a minor issue. There are 3 buttons with the back button on the right. I keep touching the corner where I think the button should be located, but its spaced in just enough I miss it all the time. Blu move the buttons to the edges where they belong. The other issue is the on-off button on the right near the top. I have to press the button 3-4 times to get it to work. It is directly opposite of the sound level button, so when you use one hand to turn the phone on and off you are going to change the s

Other Thoughts: Overall I am pleased with the phone and Operating system. There are issues that need attention, but most are shared by just about all phones. For older people looking at a smart phone, I have to say. Using the on screen key board is a pain even on a larger screen. I am constantly hitting the wrong key. So if you want to type a lot on the phone, maybe a model with a slide out key board may be better for you. I haven't found a way of using the texting app that came with the phone to rotate to a horizontal screen with a larger key board, but I switched to Google Hang Out and it works fine and switches to horizontal screen. Much easier to use the larger key board and hold the phone with 2 hands.

Overall I will say I am pleased with the Blu Studio 5.0 S. It has not caused any problems. I haven't had to restart it at all after using all the apps I need. The internet is much better than expected and I have to say the styling is nice. It looses 1 star based on the lack of a good gripping surface, the power button, and the SD card slot. Other than that, I will say BLU is out to compete with the big boys in the market and with the prices they offer, should make their mark quickly. I would like to see how one of their lesser priced phone with half the RAM perform. Blu also offers more expensive phones with better displays and more memory, but for me they are not worth the extra cost. If you live a life of gaming on a phone maybe they will be for you. The 4GB ROM, 1GB RAM, and quad core 1.2GHz processor seem to do everything I need it to do. I will recommend the Blu Studio 5.0 S to others and would buy it again. No disappointments here.

The Blu Studio 5.0 S did come with a screen protector on the phone and another in a package. I kept the one on the phone, just pulled it back to remove a few bubbles. I don't know about you but every time I try to put one on it winds up with a few dust specs on the screen.

One more thing, the camera. I took a few indoor shots and it seems to work fine. I've read reviews saying it has poor quality, but I will say one thing. It has panoramic mode and the picture quality settings go all the way down to VGA. So I don't have to waste a lot of megs storing a pic using a phone. Let's face it, us older people don't have the best eye for photos and a super high quality camera is not what most people buy a phone for. Picture quality is as good as any 8MP camera. I compared the quality to my Fuji 8MP camera and they are similar. You can't zoom in 800x without seeing a bit of grain. Pixels are pixels and who expects studio quality from a phone?

The battery doesn't seem to last 20 hours like the specs say. I do get a full day of use out of the battery. Considering much of the day I was downloading apps, taking calls, and checking out the features on the phone, battery life seems adequate but not amazing. That's all I need is a phone I can use all day and recharge at night. If the battery lasted me 2 days with everything I

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: It's very fast, has a large clear screen, good camera, great price, battery lasts about a day and a half to two depending on use

Cons: Battery takes a long time to charge (I just have to remember to plug it in overnight) and the sound quality on the phone isn't as good as my last phone (samsung fascinate) but still pretty good.

Other Thoughts: For the price I paid I think this is a fantastic phone, I've only had it for a month though. I don't do any heavy gaming or multi-tasking so I'm not using it to it's full potential.

The sim cards are labeled GSM and GSM/CDMA. There aren't any instructions or information so I emailed BLU, very responsive, and was told:

"The slots that is labeled GSM/WCDMA is the slot that is able to receive 3G/4G network. The GSM slot does not."

Also not specified is that on the sticker with IMEI numbers, the top one is the GSM/CDMA sim slot.

I'm using this phone with H2O Wireless, works great.
