Just picked up this free BLU Advance touch screen phone with a $100 top up. Not a full review but so far very pleased with it - and we have an iphone 4S (also on speakout). It's sleek and lightweight, lighter than an iphone, also slightly larger. Something i dislike as I like a small phone that fits in your pocket but the trend is to make phones into tablets...

Runs on Android 4.4.2. First thing I did was install Angry Birds Transformers, a demanding game that wouldn't even play on my HTC Desire (very similar in features, etc). Here the game plays just fine. Has decent battery and app management tools. Has slot for micro SD card and is a dual sim, whatever that means. Has front and back cameras. No issues connecting to wifi, all seems to work as it should.

May post a proper review in a few days but so far very neat, especially considering the price. Will be picking up another as the wife's minutes are running low. Comes in a variety of colours. Thank you 7 Eleven, for the great deal. Was pissed at you for raising the text price by 50% but this kinda makes up for it.

So how is this phone after a couple of weeks of use? I've read other reviews that said the screen is very dim. True?

Screen is fine. My wife is trying it out to replace a flip phone and seems quite happy with it overall.
