ZTE Blade V10 Smartphone Review: Chinese smartphone offers great selfie camera

Mike Wobker, 👁 Daniel Schmidt (translated by Katherine Bodner), 06/27/2019

Mid-range phone with a lot of features. The Blade V10 replaces the Blade V9. ZTE has decided to build on the predecessor's strengths and is offering a lot of features for an affordable price. And it is not only the 32-MP front camera that looks promising. We will take a look at what potential buyers can expect from this affordable mid-range device in our review.

ZTE Blade V10

We first started reviewing ZTE Blade smartphones with the ZTE Blade V6. Looking back, we can see that the manufacturer has continuously tried to improve every iteration based on criticism of the previous version. All these smartphones share their affordable price and a rather average system performance. Again, the Blade V10 does not support NFC.

The included hardware fits in with the image of a mid-range smartphone. The Blade V10 is equipped with a Mediatek Helio P70 and 4 GB of RAM. Graphics are taken care of by an ARM Mali G72 MP3 and the 64-GB eMMC flash storage offers sufficient storage space for installing applications.

At a price of around $280 (~250 Euros), the ZTE Blade V10 has to face up to a wide range of competitors. We have therefore decided to compare the affordable Chinese smartphone with the Samsung Galaxy A40, the Sony Xperia L3, the Wikos View 3 Pro and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 as well as with its predecessor. You can also add any smartphone from our database at the bottom of each comparison table.

Case - solid Android smartphone

The ZTE Blade V10 has a metal frame and appears to be well made. The back camera and the fingerprint reader are positioned in the top third of the back, which is made to look like porcelain using a multi-layered production process. The look and feel of the surface still remind us of plastic, however. The physical buttons are positioned on the right side of the device. Our test unit does not have any visible defects. The front of the device is covered by a very large display with a screen-to-body ratio of 90.3 percent. The display also features a small waterdrop notch.

At 153 grams (~5.4 oz) the Blade V10 can be considered comparably light. Its weight is average compared to today's competition. The phone's dimensions are on the larger side due to the 6.3-inch display. As by now most other manufacturers also use a bezel-less design, the ZTE smartphone cannot really set itself apart here.

Connectivity - no NFC in the ZTE Blade V10

The ZTE Blade V10 is equipped with a mid-range SoC, the Mediatek Helio P70, and an ARM Mali G72 MP3, which takes care of the graphics department. These chips can work with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of eMMC flash storage. The latter can be expanded by up to 256 GB using a microSD card. However, using an SD card means giving up the option of having a second SIM card as this slot functions as a hybrid and can take either two NanoSIM cards (DualSIM functionality) or one SIM card and one microSD card. Both SIM slots support LTE and VoLTE and VoWiFi (provided the user's provider supports these functions).

Data can be transferred via the device's USB Type C port, which uses the USB 2.0 standard. The 3.5 mm audio jack can be used to connect headsets or external speakers. Users who like to stream content will have to manage without Full HD content on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime as the device does not support DRM Widevine L1. Camera2 API is set to "full" and is somewhat limited.

Software - affordable smartphone with Android Pie

Users of the ZTE Blade V10 will be using Android Pie (Version 9.0). The current security patches are dated March 5th, 2019. The user interface is based on pure Android, although ZTE has created its own standard browser. There are also some additional apps such as ZTE Care and Phone Switch, that offer supporting functions and enable you to migrate data from your old smartphone. The Superb Cleaner app (OEM) offers a system tool with which you can remove unnecessary data and free up some storage. 

The settings menu of the ZTE smartphone does not support accounts for several users and it is not possible to install apps onto the microSD card either. The latter can, however, be formatted as internal storage in which case apps can be stored there.

Communication and GPS - ZTE smartphone with precise positioning

The ZTE Blade V10 supports cellular connection in GSM, 3G and LTE networks. The latter is supported up to category 7 which enables download speeds of up to 300 MBit/s and upload speeds of up to 100 MBit/s. At close range, users can use Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi with the standards 802.11 a, b, g, n and ac.

The ZTE Blade V10 reached average speeds of 325 MBit/s (receiving) and 305 MBit/s (transmitting) in our Wi-Fi test with our reference router Linksys EA8500. This positions the Chinese smartphone in the top mid-range of our comparison field.

The GPS test app helps us measure how well the ZTE Blade V10 can locate its own position. The affordable smartphone has GPS, Beidou, SBAS and GLONASS available for this purpose and manages to position us within three meters (~10 ft) outdoors. The Blade V10 does not manage to establish a stable satellite connection indoors.

We took the Blade V10 on our obligatory bike tour to compare its navigation capabilities to our reference device, the Garmin Edge 500. The recorded route shows slight deviations on long, straight stretches while curves are recorded precisely. The smartphone has no difficulty following sudden changes in direction, either. The ZTE Blade V10 can therefore be considered suitable for uses with a medium demand for positioning capabilities.

Telephone and Voice Quality - good connection on the Blade V10

Users of the Blade V10 can use Google's standard telephony app. This offers direct access to the call log and enables users to quickly switch to the dial pad, too. Two further tabs give you access to your favorite contacts and a general contacts list. Telephoning with the ZTE smartphone offers users clear sound on both sides of the line. The volume is high enough for telephoning in slightly louder surroundings. Background noises are filtered out as long as they are not too overpowering.

Cameras - smartphone with strong selfie camera

Photo taken with front camera
Photo taken with front camera

ZTE has equipped the Blade V10 with a 13 + 5-MP camera on its back and a 32-MP selfie camera at the front. This can take good portrait photos, although colors appear somewhat light. Fine details and structures are separated from one-another, even when zooming in. Even motives with strong differences in brightness can be recorded accurately. The camera app enables users to change the outcome by manually adjusting brightness or activating various beautifying modes. There are also several color filters and an HDR mode. A portrait function activates a strong bokeh effect. However, no other effects (apart from the beautifier) can be used when taking bokeh photos.

The back camera of the Blade V10 can be used to create average-looking panorama images. Details become blurry even at small levels of zoom and uniform surfaces appear slightly grainy. However, the camera manages to balance out strong differences in brightness, in order to avoid particularly dark areas on the image. Close-up objects are sharp and colors are well delineated. However, the image becomes less sharp towards the edges and some areas look somewhat muddy. Motives are hardly visible in low lighting: Their outlines are only just about recognizable and colors are almost non-existent. Apart from the settings that are available both for the front and back camera, the result of the back camera can also be post-processed manually, for example by adjusting the ISO value, the exposure and white balance. 

Videos taken with the Blade V10 are of a similar quality to our test photographs. Users can apply various color filters to their video and the image stabilizer balances out (light) camera shake. Users can also choose between 1080p, 720p or the MMS format. The device does not offer a high-framerate mode or similar.

The ColorChecker passport can be used to find out how well the camera reproduces colors. In our case, it turns out that all colors appear too light while dark grays appear even darker than they should. 

We took a photo of our test chart with the Blade V10 under controlled lighting. The camera manages to catch a lot of details and structures remain quite recognizable. However, colors are too light and even appear washed out in the bottom corners. Only certain areas of the test chart with high contrast are visible in photos taken in low lighting. Colors can only be guessed at and fine structures are not recognizable.

Accessories and Warranty

The ZTE Blade V10 comes with a USB AC adapter plus a suitable USB Type C cable, a protective case made from silicone, a SIM tool and a stereo headset. The manufacturer does not have any more accessories available for the Blade V10.

Buyers of the Blade V10 are given a 24-month warranty.

Input Devices & Handling - reliable fingerprint reader

Users of the ZTE Blade V10 can use Google's standard keyboard app, GBoard, for typing. The keyboard is good enough to enable users to type long sentences quickly and easily. The touchscreen records every touch reliably and responds to inputs quickly. The screen surface does not offer ideal gliding properties, which can make drag-and-drop actions a little difficult to execute.

The smartphone can be unlocked with the help of the fingerprint reader on the back of the device. This recognizes stored fingerprints reliably and quickly unlocks the device. The gyroscope also responds reliably and quickly adjusts the screen orientation.

Display - large screen and good contrast

Subpixel array
Subpixel array

The screen of the ZTE Blade V10 consists of a 6.3-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 2280x1080 pixels. The brightness is in the top mid-range of our comparison field with an average of 485 cd/m². Brightness distribution is very good at 93 percent.

When the ambient light sensor is activated, the ZTE smartphone reaches a brightness of 472 cd/m². This result drops significantly in our APL50 test and brightness only reaches 380 cd/m² here. The lowest brightness level still has a luminosity of 5.11 cd/m². The Blade V10 does not use PWM to adjust screen brightness.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9365 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Our measurements show that the Blade V10 has a great contrast ratio of 1538:1 and an only slightly elevated black value of 0.32 cd/m². The results are the same in the APL50 test. This makes colors appear well defined. Black content appears to have a slight grey cast.

The CalMAN analysis also shows that the screen of the ZTE smartphone has a significant blue cast at factory settings. Users can adjust the colors in settings using the pre-defined modes "standard", "warm" or "cold" or otherwise using the freely adjustable scale.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
21.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8.4 ms rise
↘ 13.2 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 26 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
42.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19.6 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 59 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (39.7 ms).

The ZTE Blade V10 can easily be used outdoors, provided the user stays in shady areas. The brightness is sufficient to display content legibly on very bright days. However, reading the display in direct sunlight becomes rather difficult due to reflections.

The IPS panel of the ZTE Blade V10 has very stable viewing angles. This means that screen content can be read from almost any angle without the image being distorted or colors appearing inverted. As long as there are no reflections, the affordable Android smartphone can be used in unusual positions.

Performance - mid-range smartphone with average performance

The ZTE Blade V10 is equipped with a Mediatek Helio P70 and an ARM Mali-G72 MP3. This is a typical hardware configuration for a mid-range smartphone. Combined with 4 GB of RAM and a 64-GB eMMC flash storage, the Android smartphone is suitable for most everyday activities and even supports apps with average graphics demands.

The benchmark results of our tests are varied. While the Blade V10 takes the lead in our PCMark Work 2.0 benchmark, its performance only positions it on second to last place in the graphically demanding GFXBench tests. The other tests place the ZTE phone in the mid-range of our comparison devices. The ZTE Blade V10 can easily outpace competitors such as the Samsung Galaxy A40 while being narrowly beaten by the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7.

The Blade V10 reached good mid-range results in our browser benchmarks. Again, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 scores higher and the ZTE smartphone's results are only good enough for the penultimate place in several individual tests such as the WebXPRT 3.

Websites are loaded quickly in everyday use and the browser is easy to use. Graphics-heavy pages do take a second or two to be loaded.

The ZTE Blade V10 has a 64-GB internal eMMC flash storage, of which around 53 GB are available to the user after initial set-up. Our storage benchmark gives the Blade V10 comparably good scores, although the Random Write 4K value is a little lower than expected. The difference is particularly noticeable in comparison to the Wiko View 3 Pro.

Storage can be expanded thanks to the microSD card reader, which reaches average read and write rates using our reference card, the Toshiba Exceria Pro M501. The results are very similar to the competition. SD cards can be formatted using the FAT, FAT32 or exFAT standard.

Games - Blade V10 for modest gamers

The ZTE Blade V10 is equipped with an ARM Mali-G72 MP3, which is a mid-range graphics unit that has been available since the beginning of 2018. Its performance is sufficient to display modern games at low to medium settings. The games we tested using Gamebench were all displayed smoothly. Only "Asphalt 9: Legends" showed noticeable judders occasionally.

The touchscreen responds reliably while gaming and the high resistance of the screen surface can become a little uncomfortable on the fingertips. The gyroscope can also be used to control certain games reliably.

According to our measurements, the surface temperatures of the ZTE Blade V10 range from 34.7 °C (~94 °F) while idling to a maximum of 37.6 °C (~100 °F) under load. This makes the Android phone feel warm but never too hot to hold. We did not notice any limitations that could have been caused by high temperatures during testing.

Speaker characteristics

The speaker of the Blade V10 reaches a comparably high volume and the focus of the sound spectrum is on highs. These characteristics emit voice nicely and clearly, but are not ideal for listening to music of watching series. We would recommend headphones or external speakers for these situations, which you can connect via Bluetooth 4.2 or the 3.5-mm audio jack. The jack is nice and tight and does not have a negative impact on sound quality.

Battery Life

The ZTE Blade V10 runs on battery for over eleven hours in our realistic Wi-Fi test. This is a suitable battery life for a battery of this size - although the predecessor, ZTE Blade V9, had the same capacity and managed to keep going for longer. The Blade V10 scored an average rate in our comparison field.  

The included USB AC adapter does not support fast charging and needs around 2.5 hours to fully recharge the phone's battery.

Review: ZTE Blade V10. Test unit provided by ZTE Germany
Review: ZTE Blade V10. Test unit provided by ZTE Germany

The ZTE Blade V10 turns out to be a decent successor for this series. However, the Android phone has difficulty setting itself apart from its competition. The performance of the back camera is average and fulfils the expectations of a mid-range smartphone. System performance is mostly average as well. This leaves the advertised 32-MP selfie cam, which takes good portrait pictures, but basically turns out to be the device's only distinguishing feature.

The ZTE Blade V10 scores high points in terms of contrast and a good selfie camera but is still only an average mid-range smartphone in the end.

The Blade V10 does offer a high-contrast display with slightly above-average brightness as well. The battery life is what you would expect from a 3200-mAh battery and there are no real issues here. The Blade V10 is a decent, reliable smartphone that will not disappoint its users - but it will not surprise them either.
