Comments about BLU Dash 4.5 D310a Unlocked GSM Dual-SIM Android Cell Phone, Black:

I was shocked to find that I could NOT run apps on my 32-GB external card, but was generally limited to the 4 GB of internal memory, much of which was already used by system components and undeletable apps. Perhaps this is an android rather than a BLU problem, but it's a serious problem.

The only skin/case available for it is the one that comes with it. No, the skin for the Samsung, which is just a bit bigger, won't work. I had hoped to be able to do something about leashing the phone around my neck, but that's not possible.

The GPS apps I've tried so far seem to be a little flakey -- I don't know whether that's a hardware or software problem.

On the whole I like it, but if I'd known about the memory limitation I would probably have chosen another phone -- the price was a significant factor, though, and I might have decided on this one anyway.

      Comments about BLU Dash 4.5 D310a Unlocked GSM Dual-SIM Android Cell Phone, Black:

      I'm happy with it. I wanted a pocket-size tablet, and this is it. My phone usage is minimal (I have T-Mobile's $10/year prepaid plan, which is just fine), but the phone seems OK. I was annoyed to find that it uses my gmail 'contacts' function, which I have heretofore ignored -- I had to do a LOT of editing at the website, which is a nuisance -- I'd rather be able to edit on the phone, but that's apparently not possible; or at least I didn't find a way to do it.

      I have the volume set to maximum, which is adequate; I'd like to be able to make it louder, but I guess I can't. If it were a serious problem I could use the earbuds with phone calls, but I'm not worried about it.

      I was NOT happy to find that it's not possible to run apps on the external sd card. This may be an Android thing, but it's annoying. Suddenly I have to be aware of how much internal space apps and their data are using, rather than feeling I can download and run pretty much anything I want.

      GPS seems to drop out, and may not restart once I go inside a building and it loses signal. I thought starting up tracking again would be automatic, but apparently not. Again, maybe this is an Android problem.

      2nd-tier tech support is not all that technologically sophisticated -- the guy told me that I NEEDED cell or wifi service to make GPS work, which is NOT true; you need it to download maps, and some apps demand it, but the function itself is standalone.

      It comes with a skin, which is fortunate -- I hunted for hours without finding an aftermarket skin, and BLU says they don't know of any aftermarket producers either. SOMEBODY made the thing, I just haven't had the energy to try and track it down.

      It's faster than my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1" tablet, which is a plus.
