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.

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.

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.

No way the retail price at BBY will be $180

If AMZ is at $130, BBY will be at $129, what are they thinking?

in the Article: Essential Drops Price of PH-1 from $699 to $499 forum

Because they did not reserve any money from the project for advertising and were banking on Sprint helping them "get the name out", which is both foolish and something that will never happen to a Tier 3 OEM. Sprint will keep the price high and this thing will be forgotten here in a few months. Why companies try to compete with the Apple/SAM is something I will never understand.

SHOCKER

$200 price drop because PEOPLE BUY HIGH END PHONES ON BRAND, doesnt matter if this thing is another $200 off, IT WILL NEVER SELL!

Sorry you could have a 100MP camera on this and it still won't sell

This is an awesome device, but there is too much noise right now...LG G6, SAM NOTE 8, I PHONE 8 and X, just not going to sell because NO BRAND, customers buy from trusted BRANDS and there is just nothing there.

Just like the "POLAROID" phone...FAIL

in the Article: Energizer Power Max P600S Has 2:1 Display, Huge Battery forum

First it was the CAT phones, then the polaroid phones, now the energizer phones...give me a break already! Customers are way too smart to realize these companies are just selling their brand, and these are nothing more than "CHINESE CRAP" ODM re branded phones...I think I am going to contact P&G and get the "MR CLEAN" logo and go to China and have a MR CLEAN logo phone made. Please, stop wasting everyone's time...

Good luck with that...

Verizon just dropped the mic...although this is the same model as the insurance companies just with instant gratification. $11/mo PLUS $79 deductible...crazy, I would think you could get a refurb or something on amazon cheaper?

You do need one, but finding a device that has not only the dual SIM as you mention but also all of the LTE bands, including CDMA so that it will work on Sprint...big companies like SAM, MOT, HTC that make such "super SKU's" do not also make dual SIM as they do not sell those other devices into different parts of the globe. You are kind of asking for the holy grail here...good luck in your search ...
