Reviews for the ZTE Blade A2 Plus

60% ZTE Blade A2 Plus Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
It’s definitely not a good all-rounder as Xiaomi’s offering so if you do manage to snag one, we still recommend it over the ZTE. Alternately, you can even look at the Asus ZenFone 3S Max (Review), which we recently tested and found it to be a pretty good smartphone for the price.

ZTE Blade A2 Plus Review
Source: Fone Arena English
The ZTE Blade A2 Plus is an average phone that fails to impress in terms of camera performance. The UI on the device is definitely not the best we have seen on phones and needs a major revamp. Although the price tag of Rs. 11,999 looks decent, the phone falls short to justify it. However, one area where the Blade A2 Plus scores is the battery performance and I am not sure how many customers would go for the device only because of the large 5000mAh battery. It is available exclusively from Flipkart. Check out this list if you are looking for smartphones with long battery life.

ZTE Blade A2 Plus Hands-On: Nothing Extraordinary
Source: The Mobile Indian English
For the initial verdict, apart from the 5000 mAh battery, ZTE Blade A2 Plus plays it too safe to move the market. We already have smartphones with enough battery life, better processor, better camera and with a similar design. Priced at Rs 11,999, the Blade A2 Plus will find it hard to stand out in the crowd.

60% ZTE Blade A2 Plus: A budget smartphone with good battery backup; horrible camera
Source: Tech2.in.com English
ZTE Blade A2 Plus is a strictly average smartphone by the company. But despite the decent attempt at going with tried and tested way with a good battery life, there is no way that I would recommend this smartphone to people despite the decent price point of Rs 11,999. There are much better smartphones in the market at the same price point offering a much better value for money. The best option right now for budget buyers should be the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. In fact, the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime also outperforms ZTE Blade A2 Plus in performance. Other options that you may look at is Moto G4 Plus which is priced a little higher.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


ZTE:

ZTE is short for Zhong Xing Telecommunication Equipment Company Limited, which was founded in China in 1985. The product range includes, for example, USB sticks, routers, smartphones and tablets.

The ratings of the relatively many reviews have a wide range from below-average to very good (as of 2016).


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
