Style Name: US GSM (U)Color: GREY Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Ever since the very first Android “smart phone” many years ago, I’ve owned more phones (and tablets) than I can recall. Looking at a few recent phones, I’ve owned Galaxy Note 3 & 4, Galaxy S 4 & 5, LG G2/G3/G4, Nokia 1520, Xperia Z Ultra (6.45”), and my current daily driver, the Google Nexus 6 (5.96”). Needless to say, I’m familiar with many models, big & small. :) So let’s take that experience and see how the latest low budget phone from Blu fares.

PROS:

+ Excellent value as a phone and/or tablet
+ Nice looking 7” IPS Display
+ Very bright screen
+ Nearly stock Android Lollipop 5.0
+ Great Battery Life
+ Smooth UI Performance
+ Expandable Storage
+ Decent build quality
+ Comfortable to hold, despite it’s size
+ Looks more expensive than it is
+ Factory Unlocked for GSM

CONS:

- Low resolution cameras & no flash
- Mediocre sounding single speaker & voice quality
- Display only 600x1024 (169 ppi)
- Limited band support (i.e. no LTE)
- Some light bleed
- Loose Power/Volume Buttons
- No accessories at launch

SPECS:

Since this listing excludes a few important details, I’ll note them here:

* 7” IPS+ 600x1024 (169 ppi) Display
* 1.3GHz MediaTek MT8382 Quad-Core CPU w/ MALI 400 GPU
* 8GB Internal memory / 1GB RAM / MicroSD storage expandable up to 64GB
* 5MP Front & VGA Rear Camera (No Flash)
* HSPA + 21Mbps / 3G (aka 4G) Band Support Only- No LTE anywhere
* 3450mAh Non-Removable Battery
* Full-Size SIM Required for GSM Voice/Data (i.e. T-Mobile/AT&T)
* NOT compatible with CDMA Carriers (i.e.

Style Name: US GSM (U)Color: GREY Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The phablet is an interesting device. Not just a phone, not just a tablet. I have many other devices but this one is certainly unique.
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!

Style Name: US GSM (U)Color: GREY Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I remember the days when first generation cellphones came out when people used to hold them like bricks to their head and then there were days when teeny tiny clam-shell cellphones came out which were small but had dismal battery life. Then very soon following that not too long ago when first generation touch screen tablets came out. Soon followed by a new breed of hybrids.. which were called Smartphones! these were actually Cellphones with touch screens which just kept on growing and becoming bigger and bigger in 'screen size' while getting thinner and lighter while at the same time getting smarter by adding more and more capabilities.

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.
