Updating to android
The first BLU smartphones to get Android Lollipop are the Studio X and Studio X Plus (pictured on the left).
Their owners should expect to receive the update starting today.
Still, some of us would prefer or be better off not updating apps without our explicit permission and action. Do you let the Play Store do its thing and simply find out an app was updated when you check your notifications, or do you hop into the Play Store and manually hit the box to let the bits flow for just that single version number jump? Let's start with the simple part — finding the app update settings.
Head to the Play Store, go to the app settings and look for "Auto-update apps." You'll be given three choices: do not auto-update apps, auto-update apps at any time and auto-update apps only over Wifi.
Most folks would like to know that their apps are up to date, and not have to worry about the update process using up their (often limited) mobile data allowance at the same time.
BLU is far from being a major smartphone manufacturer, and yet it's been making quite a few headlines lately, thanks to its affordable handsets (running either near-stock Android, or Windows Phone).
Now, BLU is in the news again, as it announced Lollipop updates for no less than 10 of its handsets that currently run Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
As we noted above, the Play Store has "Auto-update apps only over Wifi" selected by default.We're going to agree with Google that for the majority of users this is the best choice, especially as devices often now have dozens of apps installed at the same time.All BLU smartphones can be bought unlocked from Amazon.Two of the most interesting models are the 5.1mm-thin Vivo Air (9), and the Studio Energy (9), which offers a massive 5000 m Ah battery.Later this month, the BLU Studio G, BLU Star 4.5, and BLU Studio 6.0 HD will also be updated.
