LTE is an advanced cellular network data protocol capable of data speeds so fast that they compete with wired broadband internet providers. With an LTE connection, this phone should have no problem streaming HD video, downloading apps, uploading photos, or anything else that requires a high-speed data connection. The phone is also backwards compatible with 3G and 2G data for instances when you can't get LTE. In addition to cellular wireless, this phone also features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Android 5.1 Lollipop
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 5.1 is the second version of the OS known as Lollipop. It takes the myriad improvements from Android 5.0-the "Material Design" visual overhaul, revamped multitasking, and multi-user support-and goes even further, adding official support for HD Voice, added security features such as Device Protection, and more.
Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS)
Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) allows you to lower your mobile costs when traveling while staying connected. Once your SIM cards are installed, you will be able to receive phone calls and text messages from either without needing to manually choose which one is active. When you want to make a call or send an SMS message, you can select the correct SIM card. When one SIM card is being used for a phone call, the other will not be active until you hang up. Operator charges may apply.

BLU S0130UU reviews

Studio One Plus S0130UU 16GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Silver) is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value! First off, let me clarify, I did return this item. Not because it was in any way terrible, but rather because I'm leaving a flagship phone like the pure XL behind in hopes for better battery. I saw almost no difference in battery performance but the studio does take over 2 hours to charge up, more than my Pure XL. Outside of that, the phone is a delight. It performs very solidly, with a fluid UI experience and great screen (with some tweaking in miravision it's gorgeous). Battery is good for about 3 1/2 hours of screen on time but it drains fast even outside of its use. Build quality is both pleasant and mediocre. The sides are metal but the back and bottom of hard plastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice phone from Blu I bought this phone for my wife from b and h photo was the only place available atm. She is very happy with it coming from a blu vivo air 1st edition.The pros are. Great display 81% screen to body ratio,Metal frame,feels great in the hand, large battery,fast processor. The only cons would be average volume levels when listening to music and camera is average for the cost. I have owned many blu phones some not so good and others amazing.For the cost it is very good value the only other phone like that would be the Blu vivo 5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful overlarge phone Why buy the latest iPhone or Galaxy when Blu has perfected the midrange / midprice phone. Bright 1080P screen. All the important 4G GSM bands for use throughout the U.S. Little to no bloatware clogging up the phone. Comes with screen protector, case, and ear buds. But... Phone is bigger than advertised. 152.5 X 76 mm Can't change the lock screen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Phone from Blu with some miner issues I have had this device for around 2 weeks now and for the most part am very happy with it. Best things I like are the great 5.5 display 81% body to screen ratio, phone feels great in the hand has a fast processor and great battery life. The not so good things are the sound when playing you tube is quit low,call quality is ok.If you call and order you may even get the phone for $ as I did still a great buy for what you get .Im in Canada by the way and B and H deliver free for any purchase over $ with pretty fast deliver.Any questions feel free to ask cheers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone for the price I bought this phone knowing very little about it but it appeared to be a better built version of the Life One X and Vivo XL,so I purchased it. I have only been using it for a week but so far it has been excellent and I have had no regrets. It feels great in the hand, has a big battery that easily lasts all day (never been below 40% battery for me). Screen is very responsive and if anything I find that it's overly sensitive to rotation. Weird that another reviewer had the opposite problem. A slight annoyance is the inability to switch the back and recents keys as my other phones have all had the back key to the right. But that is a minor gripe. WiFi is excellent and it connects from anywhere that I am in my house, even in rooms that my other devices cannot find a signal. However, the cellular reception could be better - it often shows 1 bar less than my other phone. But call quality is clear. There are options in the settings to turn on audio enhancements (speaker boost etc) but I disabled them as the speaker is plenty loud for me as it is. I am not a camera person but the few daylight photos I took all looked ok. Low light may be another matter. The flash is very bright and makes an excellent flashlight. Unlike the Vivo XL and some other recent BLU phones, this phone has the app drawer present and there are very few changes to the stock Android experience. I do, however, miss the Knock On / Knock Off feature to control the screen on/off. In summary it's a great phone, especially for the price when compared to my other phone which cost me nearly 3 times as much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good phone for the price - dual SIM and high res Very sharp high resolution screen, in a large size that I prefer. Supports 4G LTE and includes Band 12 which is great for Tmobile customers in certain urban areas. Has two SIM slots but one is dual purpose, SIM or memory. (If you use 2nd SIM, cant add memory, or if you use memory, cant use second SIM). Pretty good cameras (I am not a frequent photographer). Sound is OK, not great, mono speaker. Case is solid and slim, comes with light duty flexible case and screen protector. Actual performance is very good but not super fast as the octa-core processor might suggest - still plenty fast enough for me. I have no issues with the Android interface or skin. There are some BLU customizations but they are not intrusive. Battery will run down pretty fast with 2 SIMs, hi-res screen, Wifi, Bluetooth all running, as would be expected. Power saver features can be used to keep it running all day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointment streight out of the box. I got two of this phones as a present to my nephews. One gold and one silver. Silver was a charm to setup and recognize a sim card unlike gold one. Gave me a trouble to set it up. Was really slow to boot and now on top of it does not recognize a sim card.
