The phone is just perfect for my needs and I have given a 4 star rating as the price / quality factor is one that can't be beat. However, I am not far off a 5 star... 4.5 would be my exact rating.

What exactly makes a 500-700 dollar phone better than this one? It'll be the hardware, yes likely some faster processor, but I don't think it is worth $400-600 of difference to have a little bit more snappiness.

My area is web development and I own and am surrounded by Apple products. My wife has all the Apple i-products. Personally I have no need for a cellphone plan and was looking for an affordable smartphone (because I am a geek yes) and most of all an unlocked one, so I could use my prepaid sim card in it. By accident i bumped into BLU. I believe it is getting traction in the USA, but never heard of it before. Googled for phones, ended up on Amazon.com and my interest was ignited. Tried to see if they were available on amazon.ca. And yes, I am now a happy owner of a perfectly fine working BLU phone

I think this phone is perfect for those parents who can't or don't want to afford a contract or an expensive phone. Give your kid this $100 phone - a prepaid card and off you go!

In short, this BLU phone for around a $100, highly recommended!

The feel of the phone is solid and the software is snappy. Plugging in a Rogers SIM card worked immediately for voice, with data easily enabled after adding the APN information for Rogers. Works well on WIND mobile, and with both SIM slots in use.

Two issues with this phone:
1. the screen. The TFT screen is sensitive to your viewing angle, and even a 30 degree phone tilt toward or away from you renders the screen unreadable.

2. the main camera. It lacks autofocus. This basically guarantees that your selfies will be blurry. More seriously, it also means the camera is useless for smartphone functions such as barcode reading and mobile cheque deposit. Even at 5 megapixels, it could only read very big QR codes, and it could not focus enough to initialize Google Authenticator via QR code.

Wow! I can't believe how much phone you get for such a low cost! I personally use a Samsung Galaxy S3 and an iPhone 5 and bought this as a gift for a family member. It will be used on a pre-paid plan with Speakout Wireless. In comparison to the Galaxy and iPhone, this phone works very well. Everything was easy to set up, including wifi, email and downloading some favourite apps. It has some good ring tones and a good size screen. The weak link, and something that is NOT a deal breaker, is the screen, as it uses a cheaper, older technology which only looks great straight-on. When you view the screen at an angle, the screen starts to wash out and gets difficult to read. The included screen protector and case are a nice touch. Make sure you use the screen protector as it makes it easier to slide your fingers on the screen for a better navigating experience. For someone who wants a great Android based phone and doesn't care to spend many hundreds of dollars and doesn't need a super-duper screen, this phone may be what you're looking for.

I've resisted getting a smartphone for a while, but I like to travel and figured having a smartphone to help me navigate around, check emails, etc. would be a good thing. If you're looking for the newest "It" phone this is not it. If you're looking a basic smartphone, that's pretty easy to use, and a relatively low price then the Blu Advance phone is a decent choice. The phone runs on Android, which is pretty easy to figure out even if you're used to Apple products (I had an ipod touch before, so I was used to ios apps). Yes there's not as many apps on Google Play as IOS, but there's a good amount and I've been able to download any of the apps I need.

The phone is unlocked so you can take it into your local carrier and get a simcard and get set up. I use Wind, which is a decent option if you're in the local Wind area. If you live outside their network then you might want to try for one of the bigger cell carriers, like Telus or Rogers. I don't actually talk or even text a lot on this phone. Sometimes I find that I'll suddenly be in a roaming area when I'm at home, but I'm not sure if that's more of a Wind issue rather than a Blu Advance phone issue.

There are 2 simcard slots for the phone. Ideally you can pop in a local simcard for where you live, and then you move or travel somewhere else you can get a local simcard and put it in the other simcard slot. The simcards are really tricky to put in if you're doing it yourself. There's a metal bracket that's easily broken if you're not careful. I accidentally busted mine trying to get the simcard in the 2nd slot. I did a little adjusting and used some electrical tape to tape the metal bracket in and get the simcard. Hopefully it will stick and hopefully you can be a little more careful and get your simcard in without issue.

That phone is pure crap.
- unable to run any application smoothly,
- always freezes on boot screen,
- if you are outside and there is sun, you can't see anything on the screen
- and so much more...
I lost 100$.
