Package arrived today as expected from Amazon. The box takes shape of the phone. I thought they shipped me a book or something lol. Upon opening, this phone is super thin and light!!! Next to a Galaxy S6 edge, iPhone 6, 6 Plus, G3; you can definitely see the difference. Keep forgetting that it's in my pocket lol. After removing a few apps, I'm left with 10.7gb. But with options such as cloud storage and micro USB OTG flash drives, it won't be an issue. Couldn't uninstall Opera browser so I disabled it. FM tuner is an excellent feature (no need for data draws from internet radios or music stored on the phone). I am in the Houston area on carriers AT&T and one that uses T-Mobile towers and get LTE speeds. Not sure about the battery life yet but have seen a few reviews on the first gen, Air. The standby time is amazing like the G3 but it may be even better. Will update if so. I like that it comes with a sim card ejector, headphones, screen protector and case (which I plan on not using). Don't really like the onscreen navigation buttons. I rather the capacitive buttons like on the first gen. The screen is gorgeous like any AMOLED display. Rich colors and black blacks. Camera sensor is by Sony but it is so, so. But for $199 unlocked, it's hard to compare!

Edit 2 - Sept. 25, 2015:
Camera Performance - After a few testing, the camera is now considered good. It has a Sony IMX 219 sensor. The stock camera app has manual ISO, exposure and white balance, and anti banding. The app doesn't switch to landscape mode which leads me to install Google Camera. In auto mode: Surprisingly, by keeping the hand steady while snapping, it performs pretty good indoors. Focusing is almost there for it's aperture and I like to have my HDR always on. Take a look at the spicy tuna handroll in the photo.

Received this yesterday, free one-day shipping on Prime! This is the third Blu phone that I have tried, and it is by far the best one. The others that I tried were unsatisfactory, one mainly because it was a Windows phone, and so it really was the OS that was the problem and not the phone itself, which was a fairly decent piece of budget hardware, and the other because it had a slow processor and 1GB of ram which made it lag like crazy.

LIKES:
Build: I love the thinness, which is at first rather alarming especially before you put the plastic protective cover on the back. The dibbled surfaces of the cover gives it a better surface for gripping than the smooth glass back. It is VERY light, and you will probably do a double-take when you realize that is the weight of the entire phone and it's not missing a battery! It feels surprisingly solid too.

Speed: This is one of the very rare Blu phones that has a decent processor and 2GB of ram, which makes a world of difference from most of the the lower-budget phones that the company makes. I have not experienced any perceptible lag so far.

Battery life: Today was my first full day of use for this phone. It was charged overnight and unplugged at 07:30am and at time of writing (10:30pm) it is at 40% battery, and the phone estimates it has 9 hours of juice left. I'd say that's pretty impressive. I made about 5 phone calls, sent plenty of text and whatsapp messages, checked FB and Google search, and played some games for about 20 minutes.

DISLIKES: The main downside to this phone is the lack of expandable memory, but I don't fill up my phone with music or photos that much anyway, so it's ok for my needs.

Conclusion: I know it's only been one day, but I'm really liking this phone that easy on the pocket in more ways than one!

Update nearly a month in: I've added to the Cons section. Overall, I'm actually *more* satisfied now then when I first got it. I was initially worried that it would be way too slow for everyday use. I'm happy to report that that's not the case. I'm a "power user", and while it's not suitable for intensive graphics, in actual everyday use this holds very favorably compared to a Galaxy S6 (in spite of the Galaxy S6 absolutely *crushing* this phone in terms of specs and raw benchmark numbers). Although this phone has a relatively low-capacity battery, it lasts *significantly* longer than any other smartphone I've owned to date (see below for list), and roughly 150% - 200% longer between charges than the Galaxy S6 in actual real-world use. (Probably because the specs are lower than "flagship" models, in terms of CPU power and display resolution.)

Overall in terms of style, quality, price, battery life, and performance - I'd say it's an amazing balance. Do take note my updated concerns about KingRoot below though (which has nothing to do with the product itself but is relevant if you want to root it).

CONTENTS:

- Summary
- Pros
- Cons
- Non-issues (things others complain about that are not real problems)
- Benchmark numbers and comparisons
- Do first after buying
- How to root
- Warnings

SUMMARY:

Thin, incredibly high-quality-feeling, and the display is absolutely stunning (low-res be damned). You will be making tradeoffs though, mainly in performance. Check the "Cons" section for specifics. Also be prepared for random strangers to pester you about it, it's so damned thin. (That seems like a pro. But it wears off real quick.)

PROS:

- This thing is THIN.
