This review is from: BLU Life Play X L102a Unlocked GSM Dual-SIM Android Cell Phone - Black
Pros: Thin, light, powerful, bright, decent battery life, good cameras. Very lightly bloated with apps we don't need. Comes with screen protector in place and a nice rubbery protective case (which I don't use cuz I like to show off it's thinness). Everything about this phone is a pro.
Cons: Nothing really available on xda as far as ROM's go, but I did manage to root it (Framaroot 1.9.1)
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a Samsung Rugby Pro (1.5ghz dual, 1GB, 4") which isn't a bad phone at all, yet the difference is night and day. This phone is so much faster and better to look at (bigger brighter screen). It feels nice in your hand and your pocket because it's so thin. Even though it's 4.7 inches compared to 4, it uses less pocket space cuz it's half as thick. Performance and feature-wise, I would put this up against any phone out there. Not saying it's the best, but it's probably the best phone you can get for less than twice its price, and it would not be shamed by any phone, including the latest and greatest..READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Does the job for which I bought it, and that is to play videos on my htpc using hdmi output. Movies play smooth as silk, even 1920x1080 blu-ray rips (x264, handbrake, high profile setting). For the price you cant go wrong.
Cons: Fan started making a loud noise after a month or so. You might want to replace it with a fan-less heatsink, especially if you're a noise hater like myself. That's my reason for deducting an egg..
Other Thoughts: A steal at the after-rebate price.READ FULL REVIEW
