    EDIT 03/07/2016: My Band 1 is now on the WC Marketplace HERE. PM me about buying both in one mega-package and we'll talk about a great deal for you.

    [S]EDIT 03/06/2016: Will consider trading the BLU for a decent 7" Android tablet, WiFi, no need for 3G/4G. I'd like a name brand, 2 GB RAM, 720p in nice shape, maybe a case included... Same value range.
    [/S] EDIT 03/09/2016 Trade option closed. I just pulled the trigger on an Excellent condition Dell Venue 7 tablet...

    EDIT 03/17/2016: This device is now on Windows 10 Mobile Official (10586.164) and factory reset.

    Time to let my BLU go to a good home. I've had this phone awhile. It's been my backup and I've used it daily for probably close to 2 months off and on. It's a fun phone and performs well. I've experimented with the camera and used Pebble with it and also Band 1. Check the BLU Win HD LTE forum for my posts: BLU Win /HD LT/ - Windows Central Forums

    This phone is running [S]Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2[/S] Windows 10 Mobile (official) v10586.164 and has been factory reset. This device can now use the WDRT as documented here: http://forums.windowscentral.com/gen...more-oems.html Windows 10 Official [S]is expected to reach this device[/S] was delivered to this device in the first wave of release. Now that there is a recovery image it may also get Insider builds. It has been tried, but has not happened yet. YMMV

    Item Description: A Factory Unlocked BLU Win HD LTE X150q Dual SIM running 8.1 Update 2

    Price: $110 USD, includes free USPS Priority Mail to US (outside of the US contact me and we'll see if we can agree on shipping method and cost)

    Carrier Locked or Unlocked?: Factory Unlocked for use on any GSM

    Condition: It has 2 faults. One is a small chip out of the Tempered Glass screen protector (upper left) and one is a very small nick in the metal banding (upper right) which you can't see, you only feel a small rough spot with your fingertip. It is in an out of the way spot and very tiny. These happened when I swapped body colors. I got careless with the razor knife lifting the top strap. Please check the pics.

    Includes: Original box, documents, OEM charger and cable, OEM TPU case (yellow), OEM earbuds with in line mic and buttons (never used), Tempered Glass screen protector installed, extra body kit in yellow, Dane 16 GB microSD card with Adapter.

    Item Location: Springfield, MO USA

    Shipping Details: free USPS Priority Mail to US (outside of the US contact me and we'll see if we can agree on shipping method and cost)

    Payment Options: PayPal GIFT or Ally POP Money (either way to my email address)

    Additional Info: This phone was Yellow when I got it. I wanted Orange, but it never seemed to come in stock anywhere so I ended up buying Yellow. In early January, 2016 I bought an Orange Body kit and swapped over. I documented that here: Easy Color Swap. Note that in all pics on the internet, Yellow is supposed to have a silver color metal band and all others get black. My Yellow phone came with a black banding. The body kit came with a silver banding. I never did a swap on that portion as it requires moving the internals into a new frame. In pictures of the body kit, both the top and bottom straps are adhered to opposite sides of the same plastic sheet.

    The Dane microSD is 16 GB and is marked class 4. It is fast for a class 4 and has surpassed other class 4 cards I've tested by 1.95 mbps or more write speed. I used the h2testw_1.4 utility on my PC to get the following results:
    Dane 16 GB SDHC Class 4
    Formatted exFAT
    Test finished without errors.
    Writing speed: 7.65 MByte/s
    Reading speed: 19.8 MByte/s

    Some reports about the 8MP rear shooter on the BLU Win HD LTE lead people to believe that the camera is bad. (Most say it sucks). That is true in a limited way. Honestly, the stock camera App on auto is a bad experience. I've found, however, that a couple tricks and some alternate camera Apps can fix the situation.

    With (Microsoft) Camera, you can force -2ev and that keeps bright daylight shots from washing out. Camera360 Sight or ProShot are better point and shoot Apps on BLU and ProShot has so many settings you may not ever go back to stock. Post shot filters and editing makes a difference as well. The camera is quite capable if you spend a little time and patience on it. Check the Pics Taken With thread in the device forum: http://forums.windowscentral.com/blu...in-hd-lte.html

    Here are some pictures I've taken with this actual phone...

    OP, that's a nice looking kit. If i hadn't gotten a great condition One M8 for Windows at your asking price two weeks ago, I'd have tried this out.

    Good luck with your sale...

    This phone was on sale Valentine's weekend for $89, but that's over. Back to $149 retail and that is only for one color. I'm telling you, it's virtually impossible to find in Orange and I already did the conversion for you. Plus you have the option to go back to yellow. Add in the 16 GB microSD and you are rockin' this bad boy right out of the box.

    This device can now enroll in the Insider Program and get Windows 10 Mobile previews: Microsoft adds Insider program support for four new Windows Phones | Windows Central

    At the buyer's request I can upgrade it to 10 on the Release Preview (most stable ring) and then factory reset. This would take it off Preview, but you would have the option of using Insider with your Microsoft Account after setup.

    FWIW, that toxic green/yellow color is different and grows on you. My only issue with it was that my 1520 is already yellow and I'm kind of OCD about not having my phones all the same color. LOL The Orange that BLU puts out is very nice. A bit less matte than the Lumia version and a shade brighter.

    My favorite Lumia color may be their green. LOVED that on 830.


    Update: I'm trying, and others in th BLU forum are reporting same... Can't find 10.0.10586.122 on Insider quite yet. The hunt for 10 on BLU goes on.

    If someone is waiting to see how low I'll go... This is it.

    $90 USD is rock bottom​ for all you get in this package.

    Thanks, but that's a bit out of support for me...

    It's nice hardware and all. I just don't know where I'm heading with Android Apps ATM and want open options in that direction.

    The trade option is now off the table. I just pulled the trigger on a Dell Venue 7 tablet in excellent shape.

    You could still bundle this phone package with my Band 1 in Medium package for one mega-bundle and save $. Each Package is $90 apiece. If I ship them Priority Mail to US Address in one box I save about $10. $90 + $90 = $180.

    Get both combined today for $160 USD, includes free USPS Priority Mail to US (outside of the US contact me and we'll see if we can agree on shipping method and cost). I think that is a fair, no haggle deal.

    C'mon, guys and gals, someone buy my stuff and make me cry over the $$$ lost. I spent over $160 for this BLU package alone.
