Reviews for the ZTE Blade V9

83.3% ZTE Blade V9 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Are we wandering in the dark? ZTE promises buyers of the Blade V9 better photos in bad lighting. We were not quite convinced by the low-light feature. In this review, we want to clarify whether or not the Blade V9's night shots are still better than those of other smartphones.
Hands on: ZTE Blade V9 review

The Blade V9 is designed to attract those with a taste for premium tech. With a stack of features, and impressive design both in and out, this is one to watch out for.

ZTE Blade V9 and V9 Vita are here, we go hands-on
Source: Android Authority English
Do either of these phones sound appealing to you? ZTE has definitely stepped up their build-quality since the last Blade, so it’s good to see consistent improvement.

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.

0.153 kg:

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).


79.38%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
