The word "cheap" shouldn't always have a negative connotation, because the BLU 5+5 is in fact cheap, but it is a great phone. BLU, the manufacturer of this phone, is an abbreviation for "Bold Like Us", which I suppose is their company motto. It certainly is BOLD offering a good quality 5 inch screen phone pre-equipped with a junk-free install of Android 5.0 (thus the 5+5 in the product name).

It's simple to use, as it doesn't come loaded with junk like a lot of smartphones. It has two buttons only, volume and power---that's all you need! The rest is all on-screen. Calling, texting and apps are all easy to use.

This size is great. It's 5 inches, which to me is better than a 6 inch iPhone.

For an inexpensive phone, it has good quality! It came with decent headphones with a mic, a stylish charger and a really nice phone case.

As an unlocked phone, you have the freedom to choose the best plan that suits you without a contract. I got a plan with unlimited talk and text, and 2gb of 4G data (slowed after that) for $40 a month, cancel any time. A much better deal than I could get with a locked phone! I had a minor SIM card issue at first, but that was solved quickly and easily.

Android 5 is really nice. Some features I really particularly enjoy: Multiple ways to unlock your phone: pattern, Face, password, pin, voice. There is also smart lock, so that if you are in your house, your phone automatically realizes that and you don't have to unlock it. Android also gives you the power to add extra storage to your phone via Micro SD (up to 64gb), as well as direct access to the file system for tech people.

Google also backs up your phone for you to the cloud so you don't have to worry about losing your phone.

Style Name: US GSMColor: white Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am a TOTAL Luddite when it comes to smart phones. I have had a basic phone with no data plan since the beginning of time. It just so happened that my family was getting ready to switch to a new plan when the BLU phone fell into my lap.

If you already know your way around the world of smart phones, my review isn’t going to help you much! But, in hunting around for what people are saying about this Blu phone, I have come across a few phrases…. Such as…
“compass sensor” / “it just supports 2 touch points on touch screen” / Studio LTE series all use Qualcomm SoC's / This definitely isn't meant to be a long term device for an adult / a $99 Lollipop phone is interesting / Studio C has the quad-core MediaTek MT6582 / memory leak garbage is easily the most frustrating thing about Lollipop
Holy cow, I have no idea what any of that means, really. One thing I know is that I have spent many, many hours doing valuable things like playing with my kids, playing music, and gawd knows what else, when other people have been obsessing about every detail about smart phones… or standing in line to buy new smart phones when they’re released… it’s really hard for me to believe, but it’s the way the world is now.

Now, my old basic phone could store an address book, make calls and texts, take a picture, I could make notes to myself, use the calculator, check out the calendar, and a few other odds and ends. Already far more than a phone could do 15 years ago. What I would hope from this phone is that, in addition to what I just mentioned, I can also easily do things like check email, get gps directions, check prices at Amazon, and look stuff up on Google.

Is it really going to matter than I don’t have a $500 phone? I really doubt it.

Amazingly easy to set up from an iPhone user (!), this is a SWEETHEART of an Android. I'd never heard of BLU before; well, now you have, too. BLU makes great phones that run Android OS, in this case, version 5.0 lollipop. "That's the latest one," my older daughter said.

I own a Kindle, so here are two big, big advantages of the BLU:

1: It WILL take the smaller iPhone Sim card!
2: Contact import was easy: Go to iCloud, download contacts and/or whatever and drag over to the BLU. Then, select what you want in and it's in.
3: Drag and drop MP3s: Yup, like the Kindle's easy Android app on my Macs, drag in YOUR music or audio books and play.
4: BIG screen delivers very sharp images!
5: % megapixel camera. NOTE: I shot my first selfie at the office with the "OOH! AHH! android army and it looked lousy. There's a small plastic covering to the lens; once removed, ya don't look like a foggy photo by a foggy-brained user.
6: Apps galore… and a lot of space to store 'em!
7: 1.3 ghz quad-core processor
8: Auto connects at 2-4G.
9: If this ever came with my iPhone, I never knew it: Earbuds with speaker are superb.
10: Runs pretty cool.
11: Screen protection's included (put it on by yourself, but we paid $40 at AT&T for one of our iPhones for this).
12: Kindle and Amazon features! That extra screen size works wonders for my subs like the Chicago Tribune and magazines! Yes, even comic books!
13: Price: At a FRACTION of Apple's price, this is a cheaper but much more loaded phone. If it got ripped off, well, I've yet to find a "track my cell" app but I'm new to this Android thing.

Battery life is pretty much equal to my iPhone, although this has a plastic backing. You'll need a good bumprer-style cover.
