All-rounder. The Blade V7 is the newest mid-price product in ZTE's successful Blade lineup. The device offers a decent configuration at a fair price of 250 Euros (~$282, RRP). Read in our report whether the manufacturer has eliminated the former model's drawbacks and improved in the right places.

At £129, this is one of the best budget handsets available to buy right now. If you buy it from Three on a pay monthly contract, expect to pay less than £10 for it. In terms of value for money, the Blade V7 is hard to beat. We do miss the presence of a fingerprint sensor and it would be good to have a slightly higher specced battery but at that price we are definitely not complaining!

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


ZTE:

ZTE is short for Zhong Xing Telecommunication Equipment Company Limited, which was founded in China in 1985. The product range includes, for example, USB sticks, routers, smartphones and tablets.

The ratings of the relatively many reviews have a wide range from below-average to very good (as of 2016).


80.98%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
