Top Customer Reviews
1) The phone is VERY pink. Not unpleasantly so, but much more PINK than the iPhone 5C, for example. The boldness of the pink is muted somewhat by the enclosed TPU case. The case fits well and is included free.
2) The enclosed screen protector is of poor quality. I will wait until another company makes one and then add one. Without one, the screen does collect fingerprints fairly easily. come armed with a microfiber cloth if this bothers you.
3) Text, movies, etc all look nice on the phone, and it is pleasant to hold. It is weighty enough to feel "not cheap," but not heavy enough to feel HEAVY.
4)Dual sims were easy to assign/manage
5) The camera takes surprisingly good pictures! There are also several settings and modes available from within the app.
These are initial impressions. I will update the review in a few days to give an opinion on battery life.
Hope this helps someone!
So far, battery life appears to be low average. Keep in mind that this is with very moderate use. I don't play games,and I don't really stream a lot of music or videos. You should be able to get through the day with basic use. If you stream music or play a bunch of games, pack a charger.
The phone ships with pretty much stock Android. There is no Google Now in the launcher when swiping to the right, though. A few curious inclusions, given the lack of space: the olden-day Android browser as well as Chrome. The old stock SMS app in addition to Hangouts.Read more ›

Included are the wall charger, USB cable, headphones (with additionally sized ear pieces) and even a camera case. The phone case itself is a sturdy plastic that did not feel cheap.
I basically got a full day or normal usage. Once or twice i needed a small charge to finish the day. You will need to charge this nightly if you are a casual user.
I liked the almost raw, stripped down Android loaded on the phone. Adding apps worked as expected from Google Play. I did have an issue with a couple higher end graphics games or ones that needed a lot of horsepower to run, but I expected that in the specs so I don't count it against the phone. I know what I was getting into and you should have the same expectation. This works great with all the social apps (Facebook, Twittter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc).
The camera did a great job at 8MP in normal daylight and dusk. I wish the flash setting was a bit better, but once again it performed well. The front camera did good on video chat over wifi when you have lighting around. Almost all phones are only 2MP on the front camera so this is very comparable. The 1080p recording was fine but make sure to use the external microSd card for the reasons I mention below.
The dual sim cards is such a treat to have. I loaded a few test networks in (make sure to know what is supported and isn't) and was able to use the SIM switcher app easily.Read more ›
Okay, I was running on an Alcatel one touch evolve for the past 3 months since my 8x decided to brick on me....I researched all the possible unlocked 'budget phones' I could get for a reasonable amount of money. I saw the moto g, the L90, the oneplus one, even an old S3. Then came along BLU.....the phone that intrigued me the most was the life 8 for its processor and nice specs....but then I heard about the studio 5.0c HD.....50$ less, slower processor but otherwise similar specs. I bought it expecting decent performance considering the lack of notoriety of the manufacturer. Boy was I wrong! This phone has excelled in practically everything I've thrown at it so far. Both cameras are light years away from any budget phone...the quad core processor works more than well with KitKat(I have not tried out games)...HSDPA speeds serve my social media needs just fine....and it came with a cool case, earphones and a workable screen protector. I don't think I could of thought of a better off contract 150$ phone. Thank you BLU....so far, of course.
P.s. the only con that keeps it from being rated 5 stars is the battery life and facial unlock....other than those minor chinks....definitely a moto g killer.
Case in point: the BLU Studio 5.0C HD. What you have here is a quad-core phone with 1GB of RAM, and a 720p display. It's a dual SIM phone and accepts a microSD card of up to 64GB.
Here's the rundown on the specs:
5.0-inch 1280×720 IPS HD Display
MediaTek Quad-core MT6582 1.3GHz processor
Mali 400 GPU
1GB of RAM
4GB of storage with a microSD card slot supporting up to 64GB
8MP shooter on the back
2MP front-facing shooter
WiFi b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP, Wi-Fi Hotspot, micro-USB, FM Radio
Dimensions: 145 x 73 x 9.7 mm
Bands Supported: 2G (GSM/GPRS/EDGE) 850/900/1800/1900 MHz; 3G (HSPA+ 21Mbps) 850/1700/1900, 3G (HSPA+ 21Mbps) 850/1900/2100
2000mAh removable battery
So why is this phone with specs almost 2 years old a big deal? Well, it's $149. You own it. No contract, and it's unlocked so you can take it (with some drawbacks) to almost any carrier you choose.
For a low-end phone, it certainly does not feel cheap. It's grip is on par with some HTC phones, and possibly feels a bit better. BLU added a color matching ear piece on the front of the phone, which I thought was a cool touch.
About that 720p display - while that resolution might sounds low given today's qHD and 1080p phone screens, it is surprisingly good. With a DPI border lining on "retina display" quality, and an IPS screen....well I don't think you will be disappointed. The screen is bright and easy on the eyes.
Moving right along to the processor... Under the hood, you'll find a MediaTek MT6582 quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM.Read more ›
