Reviews for the ZTE Blade V7 Max

78% Finally, ZTE made a decent mid-range premium phone
Source: KL Gadget Guy English version
ZTE has definitely stepped up its game in making decent smartphones, the Blade V7 series have made it to my recommendation list for mid-range smartphones, in this case, the V7 Max is one of the best mid-rangers I've seen this year as it offers a solid build with great performance internals, retailing at RM999, it is a beautiful yet hilarious price tag to make it to the below RM1000 smartphone list, probably the only thing that ZTE really needs to fix is the ugly software experience, if not, just leave it stock and I would be extremely happy to recommend this phone to anyone out there.

It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

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.

78%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
