    So I recently picked up a Blu Studio 5.0 LTE about two weeks ago. I was (still am) a 1020 owner but with 8.1, my phone has serious lag and battery drain issues. I wanted something that was priced reasonable that would hold me over until my upgrade, or even later.

    Pros:
    - the phone is so thin and feels great in the hand
    - for almost $230, this phone came with a case and headphones as well like all blu phones do
    - android is not the same beast that I remembered from even two years ago. This is a consistent experience that I've always wanted from android (on 4.3)
    - the FFC takes a lot better pictures than the one on my 1020. I know that's odd to talk about camera comparisons with the 1020 but I rarely use the rear camera.
    - battery is AWESOME. I could do the same things on this phone that I would do on my 1020 with battery saver mode on and still have more juice left after work is over. I have yet to leave work and have anything less than 30% and that's on my heavy day which isn't much at all but the screen will be on a lot.

    Con's
    - the 4 gigs of memory is slightly annoying but moving apps to my SD card is working for now
    - the vibration seems to be very soft.

    Overall, I'm a very happy to be returning back to the platform and having a great experience. My last experience (LG optimus g) wasn't awful at all but this is just overall better.

    Thanks for the review. Blu is starting to become more and more common in the forums.

    Hey cckgz4, thanks for your review!

    I personally don't have any experience with that brand, but I agree with Golfdriver97 that is becoming more common in the forums.
