Blu's 8XL is temporarily $79.99, down from its standard $129.99 price.

This is an unlocked GSM phone available in many colors. Android Police said, "The MediaTek MT6592 is comparable to the Snapdragon 800, making this one of the best processors for the money (at least in my opinion)."

Users of T-Mobile beware, HSPA+ support is going away in a number of places [tmonews.com] in the near future.

Also note HSPA has higher latency (pings) than LTE, which makes it less ideal for real-time communication apps such as VoIP & video chats.

Yes, there are two slots.

"And the back is removable so you can pop in the 2920mAh battery and we'll find slots for the microSD card and dual SIM cards."

It has HSPA+ which is a faster version of 3G sort of. I think it tops out at 5-8mbps

can the apps be installed on Memory card? that is what I am afraid of..
The windows phoen (Lumia 530) won't let me install apps on the memory card.

if it does not then 8 GB is a way small for me.

Do I want to get the Global or US version if I plan on using it on T-mobile?

Global specs say GSM Quad Band 4G HSPA+ (850/1900/2100)
and US specs say GSM Quad Band 4G HSPA+ (850/1700/1900)

ugh, 5.0 with 1GB Ram isn't going to be fun for you all, just a heads up. memory leak issue is slowing down my LG G2 big time.

Why are they making 1Gb RAM phones? OMG.
And no LTE.
BLU would sell a lot of phones if they'd correct those mistakes.
