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.

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.Read more ›
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!
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).
- Non-issues (things others complain about that are not real problems)
- Benchmark numbers and comparisons
- Do first after buying
- How to root
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.)
- This thing is THIN.Read more ›
