What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

First of all, in terms of a phone, it’s huge. I’ve attached photos of it with my BLU Vivo phone on the left and my Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge on the right. You can see how much larger it is! It weighs in at 8.8 oz (vs 4.7 for my Samsung phone) but it doesn’t feel that much heavier when handling it.
The processor seems a bit sluggish, with a lag from the time I select an app until it opens. The screen is clear and fairly sharp, but the sound quality is tinny - probably due to only one forward facing speaker. I have a Kindle Fire about the same size, and the screen clarity seems similar but the sound on the Kindle is phenomenal. When comparing volume, I noticed that the volume is not as loud as that of my Samsung phone (big difference). This BLU phablet definitely falls short in the sound department.
This also doesn’t come with an included case like the BLU phone I have. That’s a slight disappointment, but for the price you really get what you pay for. You do, however get earbuds, a charger, and a screen protector. The back is slightly rounded and is made of a dotted (looks perforated, but it’s not) soft-touch plastic. It’s easy to hold despite its large size.
If you’re looking for an entry-level device and you have a tight budget, this would certainly fit the bill. Just beware that you can’t use these unlocked devices on Verizon’s network (unless it’s a Verizon phone that was unlocked). We learned this from experience!
In that category of smartphones, In the year 2015 Blu's Studio 7.0 II is the biggest I've seen yet in the smartphones category to an extent it even has a new official name - Phablet! It's a phone as big as tablet hence called (P)hablet. History lessons aside, let me tell you, After playing around with this massive phone for past few days I find that 'BLU Studio 7.0 II' unlocked device is very capable smartphone which performs like most other manufacturers like Samsung or Apple. I wish most other major manufacturers gets bold ideas like BLU, for example inclusion of 'FM radio' and reducing overall weight then the next generation of smartphones will get better and better as years goes by.
Having said, The primary reason one would buy 'BLU' Brand versus any other 'Samsung' or 'Apple' device is PRICE. You cannot beat the price of this unlocked smartphone Period. The features and functionalities are similar if not better! when compared to Samsung or Apple and costs you way cheaper. The second reason is for someone looking to get the full functionality of both a tablet and a phone in an all-in-one package that is lightweight.Read more ›
