Amazon Resumes Selling Blu Smartphones

Posted by at 11:54 am on August 7, 2017

Blu Products said over the weekend that its phones are once again available from Amazon.com.

Amazon ceased selling the phones after it discovered the phones may be collecting consumer data and sending the data to remote servers.

Blu maintained that any data collected by its phones was “standard for OTA functionality” and “[did] not affect any user’s privacy or security,” according to a statement provided to Engadget.

Blu and Amazon resolved the matter through conversations between them, though Amazon said it will pull the phones again if it feels its customers’ privacy is being violated.

While consumers can once again purchase Blu smartphones from Amazon.com, the company’s phones have not returned to Amazon.com’s Prime Exclusives. Prime Exclusive devices cost less as long as the owner agrees to view ads on the lock screen.
