What the Critics Are Saying...


Android Guys

Parents looking to supply younger users with their first smartphone might like what Blu offers here. They’re cheap enough that you can pick up more than one without going broke and they have enough power to keep them happy.

It's good but there are a few missing perks

There are no no notification lights on the front of the phone, and you cannot stop notification tones by pushing the power button
