ZTE Blade 3

Channel5
4 October 2014
  • 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.

Review ZTE Blade III Smartphone

Notebookcheck
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: The basics We’re on the third outing for ZTE’s sub-£100 Android smartphone now, and despite its success in the East, the Chinese company’s a relative unknown in the UK. Third time’s the charm though: this time, the company’s gone all out, crafting an Android 4.0 phone with a spacious four-inch...
  • Pros: Cheap Android phones have always been knocking around, ever since Google’s operating system first launched. But to get the price down, phone peddlers have always had to cut corners, and the easiest one to chop is the screen. Not the ZTE Blade 3: the four-inch display is large enough to type on ea...
  • Cons: When you’re paying so little for a phone, you expect a few compromises. You’ll find them on the ZTE Blade 3 - disappointing, but not exactly a surprise. The five megapixel camera is entirely pedestrian, and the 1GHz processor, while enough to fire up Google Maps’ free satnav, bust out tunes on Sp...

  • Conclusion: So, that’s the ZTE Blade III. It is a fair handset for its price, and the fact that ZTE has paid attention to the screen size and produced a reasonably attractive hardware design are both points in its favour.

Review: ZTE Blade III – a lot of phone for £70

What Mobile
26 March 2013
  • Conclusion: In this sense, its much easier to give the Blade III a solid review. It has its weaknesses — namely a poor screen, and a processor that struggles with high end apps and games, but this is par for the course when we’re talking about what is an astonishingly cheap device.
  • Pros: + Very cheap, + Solid build, + Decent battery life

ZTE Blade 3 review

TechRadar UK
7 March 2013
  • Summary: Mid-range features at an entry level price
  • Pros: Cheap, Sturdy, Decent feature set, Considering the Blade 3 is only going to set you back £70 it has a pretty healthy line up of features including the 4-inch display, 5MP camera and powerful Android operating system - all be it Ice Cream Sandwich and not Jelly Bean . The price is obviously a huge...
  • Cons: Slow web browsing, Basic camera, UI isn't smooth, No front facing camera, Of course the ZTE Blade 3 is far from perfect, although that's not a huge surprise considering its low cost. The Android system isn't particularly slick and we found web browsing was lack lustre thanks to the slow processor...

ZTE Blade 3 review

22 February 2013
  • Excerpt: ZTE is known as a maker of budget handsets, but the company has three distinct inexpensive smartphone ranges. There's Kis at the bottom, Grand at the top and in the middle sits Blade. The Blade 3 is ZTE's latest mid-range handset, and as we expected, it doesn’t cost very much.

ZTE Blade III

Pocket Lint
19 February 2013
  • Conclusion: For about £80 we doubt you'll find a more competent phone than the ZTE Blade III. It's solidly built, has enough power for day-to-day phone use and while it won't blow you away with performance, normal users are unlikely to suffer much from the single-core CPU.
  • Pros: Amazing price, good screen, minimal ZTE style adjustments,
  • Cons: Camera, can be a bit slow, lack of internal storage
