Bluboo X5500 SD card issues are now fixed


bluboo x550

Bluboo has confirmed that some early production models of the Bluboo X550 phone suffered from SD card issues, and that those problems have now been solved.

A few months back, Bluboo announced the Bluboo X550 a phone with large 5300mAh battery, 5.5-inch display, 2GB RAM and Mediatek MT6753 chipset. Thanks to it’s large battery the phone sold well with thousands of international customers picking the phone up.

Some customers who received their phone have discovered that there are issues with the SD card slot. Apparently customers with the issue have found their SD trays are not secure meaning that the SD would break connection with the phone from time to time.

Bluboo say that thanks to this feedback they have now been able to solve the issue and all subsequent models no longer suffer with the problem. If you find that your Bluboo X550 has this issue we suggest you contact the reseller you bought the phone from so they can fix the issue quickly.

    fix it quickly? Lol. if you buy it and you have to resend it you pay as much as the cost of your phone. the customer is always the victim!! if you buy something it can always be something wrong but wit this issue of mass production the factory should give compensation

      I agree with most of what you wrote, but resending phone is not that expensive, it is only a few dollars, in my country it is around 20 BAM ($10). Only thing is – repair can last a month or two.

        ikr? they seem to just push out “news” lately without proofreading them. or even watching the comments of their own post after they put them online… -.-

    I tought it was software related because mine was working fine but 2 month later start to unmount/mont sdcard several timestimes, like every 10min. Al the end I took off the card in order to stop that annoying loop.
