Blu announces Vivo XL3 and XL3 Plus, but you shouldn't buy them

Blu is best known for its large variety of budget Android phones - some good, some not so good. Today the company announced two new devices - the Vivo XL3 and Vivo XL3 Plus. But unlike most of Blu's lineup, they aren't a good value at all, unless you buy one of them on sale.

BLU makes a lot of phones—it can actually be hard to keep them all straight. The latest device to join the collection is the BLU Life One X3. To set this one apart, BLU has equipped the Life X3 with a gigantic 5,000mAh battery. The phone has some other interesting qualities, but that battery is probably something else.

[Update: Instructions] BLU issues software fix for faulty Life One X2 update that left owners with unusable phones

Around a week ago, BLU issued a broken software update for its Life One X2 phone. In at least some cases, users who applied the update were locked out of their phones. Late this afternoon, BLU's official Twitter account—which, much to the chagrin of affected users, was silent on the subject for almost a week—issued a statement that the problem had been fixed via a new update.

Faulty BLU Life One X2 software update locks users out of phones

As infrequently as budget phones are updated, owners of low-cost phones should be glad their phone is continuing to receive support. However, a software update released on November 28th for the BLU Life One X2 has users less than thrilled. On first boot, the phone displays a new password screen—unfortunately, nobody has the password. Without a way to unlock the phone, users are resorting to factory resetting the phones with mixed results.

BLU announces the VIVO 8L with a 20MP selfie camera, available today on Amazon

It seems like you can't turn around without BLU releasing another budget-oriented unlocked phone. The VIVO line is BLU's slightly more "premium" product family, and the latest addition to it packs some interesting hardware.

BlackBerry and BLU settle patent dispute and agree on license agreement

A couple of months ago we learned that BlackBerry CEO John Chen decided a good way to arrest his company's decline was to go into patent lawsuit mode. His first victim was rival manufacturer BLU, against which BlackBerry filed two separate infringement lawsuits covering 15 different patents. One of the suits was mainly based on software while the other looked at hardware, specifically relating to phone signal transmission.

BLU's S1 leaks on Sprint's site, may be the first BLU phone to come to the network

BLU doesn't make the best phones out there, but they present a fantastic value. The company has a history of delivering "good-enough" at a great price. So with Sprint's coverage site spilling the beans on the upcoming BLU S1, customers on the CDMA carrier should have reason to celebrate.
