MEDIATEK IS TRASH
No No a THOUSAND TIMES No...
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.
MAKE SURE YOU READ THE FINE PRINT...
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.
Not sure why VZW would take a chance on an unknown brand like this? Must have LG and others really mad!
TOO EXPENSIVE AND TOO NICHE
SORRY will not sell
they will literally sell 12 units
Wow you mean the Lifeline guys are DIRTY??
SHOCKER!! (heavy sarcasm)

Will it let me remove the SPAM and SPYWARE TOO?
Like all Chinese OEMs do?
Well known what these "CHINESE" OEMs are doing...
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!
Re: What Case?
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.
You had me until you said Mediatek
NOPE NO WAY NOHOW
Will sell some due to early adopters but will never knock down the DUAL OPLY and oh by the way, one of those is now a TRILLION DOLLAR COMPANY! I smell a major FLOP cooking...
Wonder what the "real" reason is? Too high of wholesale data charges ? Not willing to move to all VoLTE devices?
SO yeah there was this other popular thing called YOUTUBE
GO90 never had a chance
Re: "Support for AT&T" is......
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
Re: NOT A SUPER SKU
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
UNTIL the retailers shut this down because of government pressure
I will bet $1000 that these will only end up on Amazon and not US retail stores.
Good luck with these
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.
Re: What’s so specia?
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?
Re: Statement Makes No Sense
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.
$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
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...
Just ask HTC, selling $700 phones when you name is not Apple or Samsung is REALLY TOUGH!!
any idea on OS and chipset?
I heard this on the radio today...
Get the new "GALLERY" S8...haha!
Good luck getting SD835 when SAMSUNG has all of them locked up...
I foresee a MAJOR back order...
just buy one unlocked and activate with Consumer cellular SIM card
HTC AKA HEAVY THICK CRAP
I don't see them making it much longer, losing millions of $$ each quarter...keep scrolling...nothing to see here.
Did the quote say AUTOMAGICALLY?
Really...that is lame
BYE BYE ASURION AND OTHER CELL PHONE INSURANCE COMPANIES...
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?
Now that is one F-UGLY phone
ZTE design folks should be fired
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 ...
I KNOW THEY HAVE A GOOD FOLLOWING...BUT.....
How are they going to compete with the national carriers? Sorry but AFFIRM is a RIP OFF, you would be better off going to straight talk, cricket, metro, etc...
Re: Then they wonder....
Did you see where Opera is based in Sweden? I hear you though, eventually the Chinese will own everything, from companies like Ingram Micro to the building in new York that houses a ton of US gold reserves...
wow they might actually sell 100 of these!
What a waste...WINDOWS...SMH
