84% Review ZTE Blade III Smartphone | Notebookcheck
An offer you can't resist? ZTE's Blade III is a 4 inch smartphone that is available for less than 100 Euros (~$133) on the internet. Is it worth the money or are there better offers for users looking for an entry-level smartphone?

80% ZTE Blade V
Source: Gadgetspeak English
Remembering that this is a budget priced smartphone costing well under £100, its performance is more than reasonable. In a head-to-head contest with the recently released Moto G, it would come in second with regards to speed, functionality and video display but then the Moto G lacks the micro SD option and costs around £50 more.

70% ZTE Blade L2 review: A super-budget quad-core smartphone with a large 5in screen
Source: PC Advisor English
The Blade L2 has a lot to offer at just £89, with a quad-core processor, a large screen and support for microSDXC. But while it may be faster than the Motorola Moto E, in many respects the ZTE is the inferior phone - and not just in terms of its build quality. This super-budget smartphone even gets shown up by the significantly cheaper ZTE Kis 3.
