Stylishly housed in a super thin, bright blue body, the Life Play features 4.7-inch Infinite View touchscreen display that offers an amazing viewing experience for your photos, videos, and games.

The Life Play's 8-megapixel rear camera enables you to snap detailed on-the-go photos, as well as capture professional quality Full HD 1080p video (at 30 frames per second). The rear camera also offers auto focus and macro shooting modes, an LED flash, and geotagging capabilities, and it's complemented by a front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video chats.

Dual SIM Card

The BLU Life Play includes two SIM card slots. (SIM cards are small, exchangeable memory chips used by GSM-based carriers that give your phone its identity and number.) With two SIM card slots, the Life Play enables you to actively make calls plus send and receive texts from two phone numbers simultaneously. It's handy for your global travels as it enables you to make phone calls using a local SIM card phone number (to avoid roaming charges from your U.S. SIM card), while keeping your U.S. SIM card phone number active for emergency contacts.

Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) OS

Fast, fluid, and smooth, the Android 4.2 operating system (nicknamed Jelly Bean) offers effortless movement between home screens -- like turning the pages of a book. And it includes faster orientation changes, quicker switching between recent apps, and smoother and more consistent rendering throughout your mobile device.

Browse and download thousands of free and paid apps from around the world via Google Play or the Amazon Appstore for Android.

Live in the Now

With Google Now, you get the right information at just the right time -- before you even ask. It can tell you today's weather before you start your day, or when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform. You'll also be able to see popular photo spots nearby, track packages, get information about upcoming movies, and much more.

Smooth Operator

More reactive and uniform touch responses mean you can almost feel the pixels beneath as your finger moves across the screen. Jelly Bean makes your Android device even more responsive by boosting your device's CPU instantly when you touch the screen, and turns it down when you don't need it to improve battery life.

Smarter Keyboard, Now with Gesture Typing

Writing messages on the go is easier than ever with Gesture Typing -- just glide your finger over the letters you want to type, and lift after each word. You don’t have to worry about spaces because they’re added automatically for you.

Photo Sphere Camera

With Android 4.2, snap pictures in every direction -- up, down, and all around you -- and have them come together into incredible, immersive photo spheres that put you right inside the scene. View your photo spheres right on your phone, share them on Google+ with your friends and family, or even add them to Google Maps for the world to see.

I was very impressed with this phone compared to other phones as it had great specs. The only problem I had was with the head phone jack. Everytime I tried using a (bought several) head set it sounded very bad.

Now less than five moths later I cannot use it. It will not charge. I noticed at first was that because the charging port is on top the charger does not stay in good. It always seemed to stick out a little. Now no matter what charger I use I cannot charge the phone. Tried to contact Blu (the company) cannot get a live person. Went to the website for technical support, they sent an automatic reply asking for the same info I gave the first time with a receipt. Then I send the info and get the same Reply back. If I can not get it fix I will have to buy a new phone soon because I travel for work and Graduate school. Suffice it to say I will not be buying Blu if I cannot get in touch with them or get some kind of response. Other reviewers say they thought Blu customer service was good, maybe they are having an 'off week'?

-update I did hear from blu after a couple day of back and fourth. My phone was sent out and "fixed" then sent back to me missing pieces..the battery and back of phone. Blu lacked customer service skills and communication skills.
***Final UPDATE ...Blu RMA sent back all of my missing pieces and my phone now works better than before. They even updated my phone for me! Which was awesome of them, so in the end it all worked out for the better. The lady whom I dealt with Lisa, was very nice and very helpful in finding all if my missing parts. My headphone jack even works like new.

I treated myself to this phone as a late Christmas present. For 5 months it worked fine. I was ecstatic to find that not only Netflix but Hulu apps were supported on my device. Reception worked well not great; on Metro PCS (then again I live away from most towers so I say fair on cell reception because out in the city it was on and popping). AND the battery life was the best I have ever had on any smart phone!!
Last month the phone stopped charging. Call it operator error, I think not. Neither the original charger nor others would charge. Only having had my phone 5 months (I MUST BE UNDER FACTORY WARRENTY, RIGHT?)

I wrote the vendor: BLUTEKUSA = Nothing. No confirmation of email, reply no resolution = no phone.

I wrote the manufacturer : BLUProducts =Nothing!! No Help, Comments, resolve or assistance of any sort.

I just disappoints and pisses me off at the lack of integrity. Just stand by your product or don't sell it. They have no problem taking our money, but so help you God if you need them to hold up their end.

So in summation, as I don't happen to have hundreds of dollars sitting around. Compared to what smart phones cost these days I thought this was a good deal, I saved and budgeted and bought it. But if YOU happen to have $$$ laying around you can take a chance. It's a good phone, cute, slim, budget friendly. If it craps out on you, it just crapped out on you because neither BLUPRODUCTS nor BLUTEKUSA are going to lift a finger or text to help.

Picked this because it was the best value of functions for the money. Got it as a gift for my wife. She uses it non-stop. We have StraightTalk service so she just swapped the sim. Had to change some settings to get the MMS and Data to work but after changing the settings, everything works perfectly.

I didn't want to spend a ton to buy my girlfriend a new phone and she was gonna have to pay like a $600 deductible which is moronic. This thing works about as fast as my Galaxy S3, the picture quality isn't as good as some of the high end phones, but if you are going from a flip phone or a year or 2 old smartphone, this thing is WAY better than most of the phones out there at a MUCH lower price, I am 1000000000000000% pleased, you will be too, trust me. It worked with her TMOBILE service, just switched the sim cards and put in her google account info and everything synced up fine.......phone is GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The phone works great if it works. Mine worked for 1 month before it refused to take a charge and became completely inert. I contacted Blu's Tech Support and was surprised to receive a quick reply and request for specific information about the phone which I've included below. After sending the requested information in reply I received essentially the same automated request again. It has been nearly two weeks and the automated reply is the only reply I receive. Calling the number provided gets you a recorded statement repeated in a loop (I gave up after 90 minutes). I ordered a replacement battery from Amazon so we'll see if its just the battery or the phone is a brick. If you want a $200 smart phone, I would recommend buying a used iPhone or Galaxy. This phone is not reliable and the company is even less so.
