This review is from: Cubot P9 Unlocled Smartphone - 5" Android 4.2 3G GPS 8MP Camera (White)
Pros: Android OS 4.2.2
Easily rooted with Framaroot-1.7.0
Has links to updates on manufacturers website.
Cons: I still need testing but some websites report problems with the GPS.
Minor scratches on the screen.
Having problems with one phone connecting to data with T-Mobile, the second one is OK.
I have a US Address yet they send me USB adapters for Germany/Europe.
Other Thoughts: So far so good this is an upgrade from the Blu Studio 5.3 II which there is absolutely no support from Blu and now no sound comes out the phone.
Being these come direct from China it would be cheaper to just buy them direct if your willing to take the chance. I use Newegg because they backup their promises.
This review is from: Blu Studio 5.3II D550i Black Dual-Core 1.0GHz Unlocked Dual SIM Cell Phone
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.
