Stylo 5 has a Snapdragon 450 at least, compared to the 4 and its crappy Mediatek, so you got that going for you, which is nice.

RAM and chipset?

Anyone ...Bueller?

No B71

If there is no B71 then you cant say you support TMO/METRO...also a classic move adding channels, unlikely to move the needle in terms of volume if the carrier doesnt support it....nice going...(EYE ROLL)

in the Article: Blu G9 Offers Large Battery, Premium Look for Less forum

that's because OTA updates take time and resources, something an ODM like BLU/TINNO doesn't have...they are too busy working on the new models, the other thing I don't like is the crappy US band support but again, they just rush these models in so fast and don't worry about long term brand image

What "FOCUS" on design?

Wiko is part of Tinno, also based in China. No one wants to be from China these days.

agree on the strategy Verizon really seems to be lowering their standards...first they launch a crap Orbic prepaid phone from a no name Reliance Communications (who uses an ODM) and now this Alcatel ...SMH at BIG RED

in the Article: Visible Offers Free New Phone With Almost any Trade-In forum

This is a ZTE product, so I am guessing this is not a new development but probably a re work from a product that VERIZON was going to directly source, and when the whole government issues came down, then VERIZON bailed on it...no way VERIZON had anything to do with this?

Wow this device must be an incredible failure...

Looks like another whim will result in a failure, don't see this gaining ANY traction. BTW, I think one of the owners is John Paul DeGoria(sp) and he might as well go back and keep selling tequila and paul Mitchell hair spray.

in the Article: Two Blu Phones now Work on Verizon forum

The VZW promo says that you must remain active for 45 days but goes on to say they have the right to charge back the $150 if you disconnect within 6 months...most customers who buy BLU devices are not going to stay on that long.

Orbic what?

Not sure why VZW would take a chance on an unknown brand like this? Must have LG and others really mad!

Having had visibility to what types of "tactics" these companies use...their margins are already thin, so they use the US market to send updates to the phone that have ADS and SPAMWARE, then collect funds on those devices! BAD STUFF!

That is an inaccurate statement "The company sells devices at a lower price (still more than they purchase them from the OEM" They sell the devices for a subsidized price that is LOWER than the OEM price to the carrier.

in the Article: OnePlus Says It's Talking to US Carriers About a 5G Phone forum

Because AT&T cares about the quality of the devices on their network...why should One Plus get a free pass to have all of these services work perfectly when they have not paid the hundreds of thousands of dollars in costs of certification? It works perfectly on TMO because the same standards are not required... This is no accident

TRUE but VZW requires the device to be certified...so.... the serial# will not be loaded on Verizon's network so data will work due to band 13 but you wont be able to make and receive calls

NOT A SUPER SKU

Sorry Sony, don't have a chance in unlocked when there are so many other more affordable options. This company is huge and has the money to play around with mobile but they are just wasting their time.

I see them changing up the offers all the time, seems desperate and obviously having a hard time competing for dealer doors and customers.
