Reviews for the ZTE Blade V6

83% ZTE Blade V6 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Sturdy aluminum blade. ZTE’s new mainstream smartphone, Blade V6, attracts attention mainly due to its well-built and slim aluminum chassis. However, is this enough to compete with the similarly equipped rivals?
Great looks but average specs
Source: The Mobile Indian English
ZTE Blade V6 is good looking and offers a decent performance. But in terms of specs, it isn't the best out there. Also, I could not find it on any e-retailer's website but it's a decent purchase at Rs 9,999.

ZTE Blade V6 Review: Budget iPhone Lookalike
Source: Fone Arena English
The ZTE Blade V6 is no competition for any of the existing online smartphones (e.g. Redmi Note 3) at this price point. The only good part about this smartphone is that it boasts of a really good and premium design that no other competitor is offering. One more thing goes in the favour of Blade V6 and that is its availability in offline retail, where consumers prefer having a look at the phone. But then of course it is average on performance and all other aspects.

50% ZTE Blade V6 Review

It's not really clear why ZTE chose to launch this model now, especially when it has already shown of its successor at this year's Mobile World Congress. The Blade V6 is priced at Rs. 9,999 and is currently only available at Hotshot retail outlets in Delhi. The nice design and decent battery life aside, there's really nothing else going for the phone to warrant a purchase. The dated software and security patch are two of its biggest flaws and are good enough reasons to avoid this altogether.

ZTE Blade V6 sure has got our positive feedback on the premium looking design and its processing power. The display too is bright and good. With a 13MP camera and an above-average display, the Blade V6 is definitely worth its price tag. However, the handset's closest competitor is its own sibling, the Blade S6 Plus, with same specifications except for a slightly larger display and 1GB extra RAM. It is priced at Rs 10,000. Some of the other competitors are Asus Zenfone Max, Redmi Note 3, Lenovo and more.

Hands on: ZTE Blade V6 review
Source: Techradar English
The battle for the ZTE Blade V6 will be won and loss with its price tag. Make it competitive with the Moto G and ZTE could be onto a winner, but price it too high and there are better options out there. The Blade V6 is well designed, packs some solid features and the inclusion of stock Android helps to elevate above rival Chinese handsets from Huawei and co.
