    Excited to see what this little guy can do. I'm most interested in seeing how the Snapdragon 200 handles the HD screen. I'll post my thoughts here when I get it in.

    Please let us know if it has real (standalone) GPS or not.There is some conflicting info out there as to what is actually on-board.

    tempted to get one myself as a development device and when I don't feel like carrying the 1520 around. ;)

    I got one today and I am amazed at how good of a phone this is for $179 bucks!

    @runamuck83, congratulations! May I request you run the Basemark OS II benchmark and share the results?

    And too please run a navigation app with the BLU HD in airplane mode and see if it still gets a GPS fix.

    Cool. PhoneArena's specs of lack of GPS is in error then.

    GPS works, I got a lock pretty much instantly after I turned location on. I haven't given it a test drive in Nokia Here Drive yet though.

    There is however no compass, something that I'm personally a little bummed about because I like using the compass in tandem with the map to get my bearings if I'm walking around somewhere unfamiliar.

    I ended up returning the one I got. I'm not sure if I got a faulty device but it had an absolutely maddening bug where it would read my swipes as taps CONSTANTLY. Think Lumia 1520 but a hundred times worse. I ended up getting a Lumia 635 instead for half the cost. Sure, the screen isn't HD but it has LTE and it just works.
