BLU Energy X - User Reviews

  • The specs say the card slot takes microSD, up to 64 GB. Does anyone know if you can successfully put a microSD, larger than 64 GB????

  • I got this phone last year and a month later the phone started an update by itself. It went off after the update and it has remain dead till date, I have tried to send to repairs but all to no avail. Can BLU company help me fix it or can it be replaced thank you

  • According to my research, 3G is NEW to Ghana, Africa, and is only available in the BIG main cities, not the small rural areas. In the smaller areas, you only have 2g available. In Ghana, Africa the only 3G available is on the 2100 Band, which this phone DOES support. So it is you are either in the smaller town, rural area, or your carrier does not have it. Which is it?

  • What carrier are you using? You need a carrier that supports the following bands: HSDPA 850 / 1700(AWS) / 1900 / 2100 you need either the 850, 1900 or 2100 band in your area. I think 1700 is USA only but not sure, if you have that in your area? Tell us what carrier you use?

  • This is a really solid phone, worked pretty good. Not really fast, but it was stable. Speaker is pretty loud. Has an LED indicator light.

  • By far the best smartphone I've ever owned with an amazing speaker

  • Please I can't get the 3G or4G. Am in Ghana Africa. What can I do.

  • Micro SD

  • Anyone knows what chipset this uses?

  • Best phone i hsve ever own.

  • Pretty great mid-range phone and especially good for the money. Also, I hate to ask this, does anyone have a backup of the stock ROM for this device?

  • Please can you post the link in Amazon and Ebay where the phone can be found. I mean the BLU Energy X.

  • Amazon

  • Some one is selling them on eBay.

  • Does anyone know where this phone is available for purchase? They picked a bad name for this one. When you search Blu energy x, Blu energy x plus always comes up

  • Their camera is always deal breaker....

  • mmmmm, looks like BLU is starting to left behind, first the blu studio energy, with 5000 mAh Battery, then the blu energy x plus, with a beautyfull screen size and LED flash on facing camera, now this one with less screen size, 1000 mAh less of battery and same Soc or RAM, nothing newer seems to be here.
