Size: 8GB + 1GB RAMColor: Black Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that I paid actual money for this device unlike some of the reviewers who got theirs for free. So I have nothing to lose by giving a true review of this phone.

I've owned a lot of phones over the years, but I've got to say this one was the best deal on a great phones since "Cellular" companies gave you phones for free. I bought this for my 17 year old, quite frankly because I wouldn't feel that bad if he lost, broke, or bricked a $149 phone. When the price dropped to $99, it became an even better deal.

I've kept an eye on BLU phones for a while now, and while they seemed OK, it was clear that almost every one of their models gives something up in the interest of keeping the price low or focusing on a different shiny new object. Either you had to settle for a bad screen, no 4G, certainly no LTE in most cases, or something that was actually important. The Life One really doesn't seem to do that and has the kind of specs that a flagship phone would have had just a couple of years ago. In short, this is an amazing piece of technology at an unbelievable price.

We have a Family Share plan on AT&T, and all we had to do was slip in the SIM card and the SD card (you'd be foolish not to put an SD card into this phone) and we were off to the races. Turned t on and setup was a breeze, since my son had come from a feature phone, I had to make a call to AT&T to provision the phone for 4G LTE, but that took only about 10 minutes. I don't think you'd have to do that if your SIM card already was tied to a smartphone. The phone found WiFi, latched on to a strong 4G LTE signal, and showed a strong signal for calling, even stronger than my two year old LG Optimus G Pro.

Size: 8GB + 1GB RAMColor: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
BLU has produced a good low cost entry level 4G LTE phone. There were some sacrifices made by BLU in order to achieve the price, which means this phone is not for everyone.

In my opinion this phone is perfect for anyone who does not want to be stuck in and contract and does not plan to install many apps or play more graphic intensive games. The phone is good for using the Internet, taking pictures as long as you are using a microsd card, making phone calls, and a lighter usage of apps.

I rated this phone 4 stars. The rating based on the criteria I have listed.

I have tested this phone on both at&t and T-Mobile networks. I am including screenshots in my review. Feel free to ask questions in the comments field and I will try to answer them.

- Device Storage: This is my biggest CON. The cost difference between 8GB and 16GB NAND Flash is minimal. The company should have gone with 16GB even if they decided to slightly increase the cost of the phone. Considering the Android OS takes up a good portion of the storage, which will be worse with Lollipop once BLU pushes out the upgrade later this year. . available storage showed 4.66GBYes you can add a Microsd card but many apps cannot be move to the MicroSD card.
- RAM: 1GB of RAM limits the amount of multitasking you can perform without suffering from stuttering. No issues watching Netflix
- Shipping with KitKat rather than Lollipop does not make much sense with a new phone.
- Missing BAND 5 (at&t) and BAND 12 (T-Mobile) LTE Bands. This could impact some people.
- Single Band WiFi. 2.4Ghz only.

- Not much bloatware like you see with the major manufacturers. Mostly Google apps and only a few BLU apps
- Easy to navigate and use interface.

Size: 8GB + 1GB RAMColor: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
For anyone who thought they can't afford a smartphone that has high quality features or get one at a super low price, BLU (Bold Like Us- the Florida based company who wants to make smartphones available to everyone) has made it entirely possible with this fantastic solid smartphone, their new Life One 4G LTE. Opening the box, you will find the Life One smartphone, screen protector, comfortable, easy gripping rubbery case cover, ear phones, micro USB charging cable and plug, SIM Card installation guide and Life One Quick Guide. In other words, BLU gives you everything you need for your smartphone in the box. The only thing you will need is your SIM card and this phone being unlocked- the sky's the limit on what type of card you want and what price you want to pay. With it's GSM Quad Band, you get compatibility nationwide on all GSM networks including the large companies like AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, Net 10 to the smaller companies, of which there are about 70 in the US. You don't have to be on an expensive yearly plan, as with unlocked, you can get a Buy Your Own Plan from companies like Straight Talk. Of course, being unlocked and 4G, it's compatible worldwide in many countries as well.

For anyone who doesn't know, the older 2G wireless phones and other 2G wireless devices (vehicles, alarms, vending machines etc.) will be extinct in 2017, when GSM companies strictly go to higher speeds of 3G and 4G wireless networks. This makes it an even more perfect time for those that need to upgrade to this great buy on a 4G LTE phone. Now, for the features:

The 5 1/2" x 2 3/4" x 1/4" beautifully designed and sleek phone is very sturdy with it's great grip rubbery case back cover.
