Review ZTE Blade III Smartphone

7 August 2013
  • Summary: An offer you can't resist? ZTE's Blade III is a 4 inch smartphone that is available for less than 100 Euros (~$133) on the internet. Is it worth the money or are there better offers for users looking for an entry-level smartphone?
  • Pros: Bright screen, Keyboard features additional input modes, Good GPS module, Clear speech quality, Camera's decent picture quality, The rigid casing, the bright screen and the decent camera.
  • Cons: Crashes and graphic bugs, Processor's low performance, Unsatisfactory gaming power, Screen's bluish cast, Short battery runtimes, Crashes and graphic bugs are really superfluous in 2013...

  • Summary: While top of the line smartphones gets better and better, so do the affordable ones, with tech trickling down in price. The ZTE Blade 3 is a superb example of just how powerful mobiles have become, and with access to the Google Play store for just £69 at launch, it’s a steal. Design aficionados might want to stretch a little further to nab a Nokia Lumia 620, but for everyone else after a smartphone on a budget, the ZTE Blade 3 is a great fit.

ZTE Blade III review

Pocket Lint
19 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Low-priced Android phones are a mixed bag, on the one hand, they're often better than you'd expect, but on the other there are always compromises made to get a phone out for this sort of money. It becomes even more ridiculous when you consider that Virgin Mobile is selling this handset for £80 (shipping is £8 extra) with a £10 calling credit included.
  • Pros: Amazing price, good screen, minimal ZTE style adjustments,
  • Cons: Camera, can be a bit slow, lack of internal storage

ZTE Blade III Review

Mobile Choice UK
7 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Above average looks and build, with below average performance, you nonetheless get far more than you are paying for with the ZTE Blade III. At just £69.99 it could set fire to our bins and we’d still recommend it. This will make an ideal back-up phone for those who need something cheap and reliable in case their main device dies, and is also a great choice for undemanding users and smartphone first-timers.
  • Pros: Easy set-up; solid build; good internal search; excellent price
  • Cons: Poor processor; no front-facing camera; rear camera not great

  • Excerpt: Dette er en økonomimodell, og selges til priser som starter på rundt 1200 kroner. Mens de fleste mobiltelefoner i denne prisklassen har mindre skjerm og enklere design, fremstår Blade III som en mobiltelefon med brukbar skjermstørrelse og grei skjermoppløsning (4 tommer, 480 x 800 piksler).
  • Pros: Svært mye mobil for pengene, God skjerm i sin prisklasse, Mye teknologi og funksjoner, Lett å bruke, God design
  • Cons: Småtreg i menyer og nettleser, Svakt kamera og musikkspiller, Mangler fotolys
