If it came with oreo might be worth it, but I think there is zero reason to get this over an honor x7

Yeah, not sure what happened to the post & you can't confirm via CCC sine it was only that price for a few hrs. Google certainly knows it was posted to SD for $199, but somehow it got deleted. It was posted to reddit & a few other sites per a Google search for BLU VIVO X $199

I'd certainly hit this @ the previous $199 if I didn't already have a $100 LG X Charge. Blu has budget phones that is known for decent reliability & they work just fine for those who occasionally will do some schtuff from their phones. It rates very well compared to $400 models. What's wrong with it?

I was able to pull the trigger at $199 before the price rise.

Considered the Honor 7x but no 5 Ghz wifi, no native T-Mobile wifi calling and less RAM and storage than the Vivo, and smaller battery just to name a few. While the screen rez is substandard I'm hoping that extrapolates into even longer battery life.

1440x720 18:9 aka 2:1 (not 1280x720 16:9)

At least criticize it accurately.

yes, 720x1440 still is low resolution.
I am using my Le MAX2 phone is 1440 x 2560...

BLU really blew it all away Big Grin

They lured a specific crowd but their laziness to launch a new phone with 1.5 years old OS[always] and then never provide a single OS update caught up with the people. Too bad the last phone locking update[the only they ever dared to have] and the Chinese Malware and Texting to a number in China didn't go well for them anymore

Amazon reviews so far have been excellent. Maybe they're anxious to get back on track.

Ever wonder why you have to charge every phone every 4 to 5 hours??? With the blu you won't have to charge it in quite a while.

I bought both honor 7x and vivo x, they both cost me 199 each, so far vivo x is winning the fight on performance and battery life, as for the screen I can't really tell the difference unless I'm thinking about it. Rear Camera the 7x is better but front camera the vivo x is fun an very entertaining. Keep in mind both phones are trap phones, or disposable phones. So software updates don't matter much when the phone is a food stamp phone. So far vivo x is great but only for 199 or less.
