Specs are good for $150 phablet that will work on T-mobile with dual sim capability. But it's such an unknown company that you might be throwing your money at something that maybe as buggy as heck.

I would take a chance if they offered this phone on Amazon with a no-question asked return policy. But here, it's too much of a risk.

Seriously though, i'm interested in this, but there's absolutely ZERO video reviews anywhere on youtube or the internet. The same specs seem to be repeated across multiple sites and there's no pics of it actually in the palm of someone's hand - it's all stock photos. I found one pic and stock photo that shows a micro SD, but not positive on that since I couldn't find it anywhere else.

Can anyone find any REAL (hands on) info or reviews on this one? At this price, I'd hate to take a chance

EDIT: i see TF card in the description, but still doesn't answer the max accepted size.

Yeah, at $150 it isn't out of the question for a 6.5" screen but I'd argue you're better off with a Moto E5 Plus with only a 5.5" if you can get it for the $100 on Verizon prepaid and then eBay unlock it.

$150 isn't nothing for taking a chance IMHO

i'd be coming from a note 3 (5.7") so debating whether the risk is worth just under an inch increase in display size, BUT an overall downgrade in performance. This is mainly me being impatient over the last 2 yrs patiently waiting for a 7" device (with an earpiece) compatible with T-Mobile bands and with *almost* flagship specs - but always disappointed after each MWC and CES event. I'd only have this until MAYBE the Note 9, S9, or fingers crossed, the Galaxy X.

And i reallyyyyy hate this stupid 18:9 ratio 'fad' going on Frown Feels like a dang golf club and crops (cuts off) 16:9 video. I really don't get it.

Haha well good luck. You're the first person I've heard from wanting a device that large, but I can see the use cases.

At this price, I'd look at the Lenovo Phab series. Looks like they didn't get very good reviews, and are focused on AR (and don't even do that very well), but I think they are less of a risk than this. The regular (non-pro) version is on sale at B&H for $160. It only has a HD screen and micro USB, but has the T-Mobile LTE bands and a 6.4" screen.

i know right... My wife and I always seem to find ourselves in a niche market for almost any big-ticket item we're looking for. I've always wanted a slim-bezel'd smartphone with a 7" display so I've kept a sharp eye on the market.

Warning: RANT SECTION***
When I first heard about the Blu Studio 7.0 LTE and it's 100% compatibility with T-Mobile, I jumped right on it. I read a ton about the specs, mostly their 7" but 720p screen - which was disappointing. I foolishly thought the rest of the specs were good enough. Despite the screen resolution, and how they boasted their ability to make it 'appear' as an "IPS", I bit the bullet and bought it through amazon with full intentions of returning it if it didn't meet my expectations. Long story short, after a couple days of trial, I ended up returning it. Not because of the screen.. that was actually gorgeous. It was colorfully saturated, large and easy to navigate display - undoubtedly the best part. It's what I miss the absolute most. Reasoning for return was for the laggy performance. Snapdragon 410 and 1GB ram?? That was a huge mistake on their part, and also mine for disregarding as 'good enough'. After loading just Facebook, roughly 1/2 of the ram was used and rendured the device overall very laggy. Lesson learned.
END RANT***

Now, i'm not only focusing on Network compatibility and screen size, but also performance related specs. Comparing specifically the Note 3's CPU and GPU to this device, I'm kinda stunned at the difference.. you'd think the Snapdragon 800 would completely overwhelm Mediatek's CPU and GPU, but it's the TOTAL opposite lol.

Still, I remain skeptical and am continuing my search to confirm specs as well as other unknowns (device dimensions, brightness (nits), etc.)

Just in case anyone is interested in this phone, it's $119 on Amazon.com right now.

Considering this for this as a dual sim international travel phone/device versus the ZTE blade v8 pro.

There's a $40 coupon that I can apply, making it $79. Not a bad deal, at all.

I just saw it and am in for 1. Pretty intriguing deal for 79$. Hope this works well enough overseas.

Missing just T-Mobile band 12. Customer reviews on Amazon.com have been generally positive.
