The First Impressions!
I have used this phone for over 3 months and thought it was time to do a full review. Even though The First impressions of the phone was straight on for me. I’ve loved this phone from the day I gotten it. When I first got this phone, I didn’t know what it would have been like with it. Now I use it every day to stream video and Netflix to my Chromecast Media Player! To a point this phone has some huge potential for me. I now have a good enough camera to take pictures with and to use while I am at work.
The Pro’s and Cons!
Now I am going to talk about the phone and how it has handled with me the last few months and get into detail about the drawbacks and good feature of the phone. So It features a 720p display with a 5.7 inch phone can be very useful on the road and let you stream the shows or movies straight to the phone. It isn’t necessary a High Definition display but it does keep the price below 300$ to make anyone jump through hoops just to have a chance to use it. I’ve even had people ask if it was an Samsung Galaxy S3 or an Iphone, I however just chucked and said it isn’t anywhere near a S3 or Iphone. The basic down to earth understanding of the phone is that it is less expensive than those and still get your close to the quality of those phones. It doesn’t come with LTE, which means you can only use HSPDA for data speed. So you won’t go faster than 21 Megabytes Per Second, which isn’t something to laugh at. It comes with a dual SIM card, so you could get two different phone numbers for one phone.
This is a budget phone, for those who do not want to fork out the money for a S3 or even the Iphone. You pay half of what you would pay for the competitors prices and still have a decent phone to do what you want with. However if your are looking for a good MVNO, then I would recommend Straight Talk Wireless which works just fine with this phone.
So let’s just talk briefly about the bad parts of the phone. You get no NFC ability, or even higher brand of MP for the phone camera. You get a lot for what you pay for this phone. You get no way to increase the storage space on the phone. You get a total of 16gb of space but you really only get to use 12gb of space the other 4 is used for the OS and memory for the operating system. Although, I’ve been having it automatically upload any pictures to the cloud for storage that way I keep my storage needs low on the phone itself.
I’m really happy buying the Life View from Blu, it was getting close to the mid 200 dollar range when I bought it and it seems to be going down even more. It has been nice to have this phone where ever I go and to use it for what my needs are! I haven’t even minded the storage issue on the phone. You really have to decide for yourself if this phone is worth the money or not but I am really satisfied with my purchase!
