Model: Need a cheap, affordable smartphone that comes easy and handy? The ZTE Blade V10 is one of the available choices that users can scour for in the market. The ZTE Blade V10 does not lack in terms of style and has a few simple key features that can be operated with nary a fuss. First and foremost, it is to be brought into immediate attention that the physical structure of the ZTE Blade V10 is constructed through a multi-layer stacking process to create an almost surreal-looking porcelain appearance on its body. Not only that, the ZTE Blade V10 also traces a ceramic feeling to the touch, as if one is handling a delicate slab of ceramic rather than a smartphone in their hand. The combination of both modern technology and the artistic theme of surrealism of this smartphone design has somehow established a sweet position in the expression of creative freedom. The ZTE Blade V10 is available in three colors – classic black, turquoise blue, and a deep blue shade, which has been cleverly brushed with a fading purple-colored gradient edging towards the bottom of the device. The ZTE Blade V10 has a 6.3-inch full density screen which expands close to its curved edges. The 90.3% screen ratio enables users to gaze into their smartphone with a 400 PPI broader view for a more immersive experience in general. The ZTE Blade V10 does have a mandatory fingerprint sensor as a privacy and security measure but there is not much else to gawk about aside from its camera feature.

A smartphone would not be complete without a defining camera feature. The ZTE Blade V10 is no less a contender in that regard despite coming off as a meek representation of a budget smartphone. Selfie lovers will be enlightened to learn that the ZTE Blade V10 is well-equipped with a 32 MP photosensitive front camera with f/2.0 large aperture. The front camera is enhanced with several other features such as AI selfie and also an outstanding new generation four-in-one technology which effectively increases the camera’s unit pixel in order to produce a better photo resolution. The four-in-one technology introduces low-light shooting onto the table and pictures are claimed to be more breathtaking if taken in a dark environment. On top of that, selfie lovers are going to be delighted that the ZTE Blade V10 is incorporated with AI beauty technology, which accentuates its user’s facial features from selecting the best solution from a million beauty programs. Combined with backlight HDR from negatively affecting the outcome of the picture, the portrait effect is bound to bring more focus to the user rather than the distractions that exist around the environment. Bokeh effect cleverly comes in handy should one feels the need to blur things out in the background.
