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.
Conclusion: The ZTE Blade 3 is a serviceable little handset, though it starts to show cracks if you look too deep. But every time I came across an issue, I reminded myself of the price and ultimately decided that despite the grumbles it does represent good value for money.
Pros: Nice looking, Solidly made, Clever lock screen system
Cons: Limited HSDPA, Iffy camera, Some screen issues
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
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: The Blade 3 has a simplistic yet fairly stylish design. In many ways it looks like your typical smartphone with everything where you would expect it to be. We like the use of various colours tones of black, silver and grey.

Test ZTE Blade III : ICS, 4 pouces et petit prix ?
3 weeks ago
Conclusion: Le ZTE Blade aurait pu constituer une alternative crédible pour les personnes en quête d'un téléphone bon marché. La finition est correcte et la diagonale de 4 pouces associée à une définition de 480 x 800 pixels se montre confortable, notamment pour le Web qui donne satisfaction. De plus, si l'APN de 5 mégapixels n'a pas la prétention de rivaliser avec les ténors 8 mégapixels, le résultat en photo reste acceptable.
Pros: Capture photo honnête, Expérience Web / DLNA / Prix
Cons: Capture vidéo catastrophique, Bugs divers et variés / Lenteurs
Conclusion: ZTE Blade III to całkiem ciekawa propozycja dla osób, które szukają niedrogiego smartfonu z funkcjonalnym systemem operacyjnym oraz dużym ekranem. Co prawda nie obyło się bez sporej wpadki z aparatem fotograficznym, jednak pomijając ten aspekt nowy ZTE to naprawdę solidny konkurent dla telefonów bardziej znanych i lubianych producentów.
