Bad Documentation update

Andrew W., Newegg
29 May 2014
  • Pros: After using the phone for a while and figuring out what it can do mostly through trial and error it seems to have a lot of features and looks to be a good buy.
  • Cons: Better and more detailed documentation would make the adjustment period a lot shorter, especially for someone who has little experience with a smart phone.

Bad documentation

Andrew W., Newegg
17 May 2014
  • Summary: May be a good phone but without documentation that explains the features and how they work it is useless. Will try to get $5.00 for it at a yard sale.
  • Pros: Phone works
  • Cons: Documentation is worthless.

  • Summary: you can get kingo from majorgeeks or google it.
  • Pros: I finally got a 32gb micro sd card that was compatible. It is the SAMSUNG Plus 32GB Micro SDHC Class 10 Flash Card Model MB-MPBGC/AM.
  • Cons: it still is slow, livable, but there are faster phones out there, but not at this price.

Blu Dash 3.5

JEFF P., Newegg
1 October 2013
  • Summary: For a first smartphone that is wi fi capable and loaded with useful features.
  • Pros: For an unlocked, inexpensive smartphone, it is very impressive, with the ability to download FREE apps from the Google play store app. Setup was a breeze, popped in a SIM card from Puretalk and a 8gb sd micro card and setup was a breeze. Got this for my 10 yr old daughter who wanted an iPhone like dads, Not doing it, she's only 10. Phone will be used for calling mom and dad and friends and for the ever popular texting of friends. Has wi fi, so she can connect at home ...
  • Cons: For the price of the phone and it's features, no CONS as of yet. Will post another review after a month of use.

quirky

Carlos S., Newegg
9 March 2013
  • Summary: i would gladly trade the extra colored back plates for the perception that more time was spent user-testing the phone before taking it to production. the phone is neat for all the functionality built into such a cheap device but it almost isn't a phone when you don't want to use it for a conversation because of the constant volume wavering.
  • Pros: cheap. easy to use w/ prepaid service (e.g. t-mobile in the USA).
  • Cons: the voice quality during phone calls varies from second to second. i have never experienced a phone that does that. its not just a matter of reception. it seems like the volume increases and decreases from second to second.
