My Studio 5 01 got a cracked screen and I cant get a replacement, which is decisive for me in dumping this phone, I like the screen size but there isn o support for these phones, no replacement parts, which is a huge no no. I won't be buying another one and don't recommend anyone buy these phones until they get accessories, replacement parts and support set up and in operation Not a happy customer, 5 out of 10 for screen size. Company sucks...

Very pleased with all of the other aspects. Had to relocate sim into the right slot, looking at back of phone, then perform factory reset, to her 4g service. My area uses AT&T, through Straight Talk. Very pleased.

Any time you remove the back cover, be sure to gently press on the adhesive strips that holds the buttons in place. It's the only thing that holds the buttons in place when the battery cover is removed. And be careful not to disturb them when battery cover is put back in place.

I bought my BLU Studio 5.3 S back in November of 2013. There are a few issues that I have with it, first of all my carrier is AT&T I thought this carrier would be okay but I don't think it was a good choice I can't pick up good signals in areas where I should. Second I have a battery cover issue, I can't find one anywhere I just contacted the company I bought it thru and I contacted BLU products directly to see if one can be found. The piece for the volume control has fallen off, don't know if anyone else has had that issue, but I am starting to get discouraged. I did find on on another web site but it has another piece with it which I do not need and it is $ 30.00 don't want to pay that much for two pieces when I only need the one. But If I cannot find the battery cover I will not get a phone by BLU products again until they start selling the parts for it .

A very nice phone for the price, great specs, great display. My only problems is that there is no notification light and the original icons looks very cheap not crisp like a Galaxy! But all in all works well! Internal storage can b improved

This is a very fast and affordable phone but there is no support for it at all. No updates, no foruns , no accessories. T have mine for 4 months now and now my camera doesn't respond and I can't get help.

Is this device compatible with the GTA San Andreas app? I bought the blue studio 5.5 which had all the specs to run it but was still incompatible

I have this phone now for just over 5 months, for the price of it, it works ok with just one exception. For some reason i found that lately some of my stored pics are showing up as a black background...this does not happen right away..maybe after a day or so. I haven't found the time to investigate this issue fully as yet. Otherwise, everything else seems ok with the phone.

I have the 5.3S and love the phone. The only issue I have is that I can't get MMS. I'm using Straight Talk. Is there anyone out there using ST with this phone that is actually receiving MMS? If so please provide your APN settings. Thanks in advance for any help provided!

Note: I called ST and they provided their APN settings off their webpage & I'm still unable to receive MMS.

The Studio 5.3 connects to 3.75G and shows 'H' when the network is available.

> In reply to PB @ 2013-12-21 04:26 from M7dq - click to readI have to respectfully disagree. These phones don't have 4G capability, but in some areas their higher 3G Platform, (HSDPA/HSUPA) is closely rivaling the 4G basic network.

One reason BLU stayed with the 3G network is the much higher cost of instituting 4G on their phones, not to mention the red tape involved to get it. It would've taken years more to get up and running.

We'd see a much higher cost on these phones if BLU had went with 4G. I'm aware that some sellers have tried to pass it off as 4G though, and they are very wrong.
