Model: The ZTE Blade V220, or ZTE V5 Lux, is the smaller sibling of the ZTE Blade S6, which was released at the same time. This device is equipped with a Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 quad core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and an Adreno 306 GPU. This is not going to take over any flagship phones out there, but it is very reasonable for its mid-range price tag. The 5.0 inch capacitive touchscreen features IPS technology, 16 M colors and a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (~294 ppi pixel density). It does not have the greatest resolution, but the viewing angles are stunning for this device.

The 13 MP rear camera features a resolution of 4128 x 3096 pixels, autofocus and a LED flash and is capable of recording 1080p@30fps videos, while the one on the front side is just a 5 MP, 1080p camera. The internal memory is 8 GB and the device supports microSDs up to 32 GB. The few interfaces available are a 3.5 mm headphone jack and microUSB v2.0. This phone is rather suitable for those looking for a decent mid-range phone for a good price.

Qualcomm Adreno 306: Integrated mid-range graphics card in the Snapdragon 410 SoCs that supports OpenGL ES 3.0 and features unified shaders.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

This display is tiny. You will probably see very little on the screen and be able to use mini-resolutions.

ZTE is short for Zhong Xing Telecommunication Equipment Company Limited, which was founded in China in 1985 and is partly state-owned. ZTE's core business is wireless, optical transmission, data transmission equipment, telecommunications software and cell phones, USB sticks, routers and tablets.

66%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
