Not worth it - failures

My wife's BLU 4.0L failed. The replacement lased 2 months before the wifi failed. Oh and we bought the replacement. My sister-in=laws wifi failed many months ago and she got a warrantee replacement. Poor results.

Got it from Amazon.ca for an additional $4 above the Speak Out price which the local 7-11 wouldn't honour.
Arrived right on time, inserted the SIM card from the SpeakOut NOKIA C3 (which took a bath), inserted the battery and charged it.
Summary of experience:
CON:
a) the manual (from SpeakOut website) is very basic (minus Star)
b) the Quick Start insert is also basic (minus Star)
c) the screen protector is so-so (minus Star)
d) connecting to a hybrid WLAN/LAN network a challenge (minus 2 Star)

PRO
e) handy size with nice feel (plus Star)
f) features good for a basic phone, headphones very nice ( plus Star)
d) good Internet speed and good phone reception (plus 1 Star)

Comments: Hurray it also has the OPERA browser as standard, OPERA is my FirstInLine browser!

Slower Than Molasses in January

Ok. So this phone MAY have been great when it first came out years ago, but today in 2016 it's awful!!!!

I had a Nexus 5 with the most recent Marshmallow 6.0 android update but had the lcd screen cracked. That made trying to do ANYTHING on my amazing Nexus 5 useless. I went to the local flea market and they quoted me $80 to replace the LCD screen. So my bf said "Forget it, we can get you that "new" Blu 4.0 L on Amazon.ca for $80 including taxes and shipping." So that's what we did.

OMGN! The bloody is slower than molasses in January!!!! It takes so long to register that I have even typed anything on the stock keyboard, that my words come out as gibberish! I had to download the swiftkey keyboard app from the google playstore in order to be able to slide my fingers across the keyboard REAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLYYYYY SLLLLLOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW in order for it to pick up what I was telling it to type.

Internet. Good lord, even on wifi it's slower than molasses in January. it takes FOREVER to load the stupid pages, it even takes forever for it to register what I've said when I talk to Google Now trying to use the voice search or even voice to text.

If you need a phone to make calls, great. Get this phone because it's cheap. But for a smart phone, it would make a better paper weight than anything else. I hate this phone with a passion. And as soon as I get the chance, I'm going BACK to the flea market and paying the $80 cash to get my LCD screen fixed on my Nexus 5 and selling this on kjiji.
