Summary: I have recently purchased this android phone and found it to be amazing.The 4.3 inch screen is a perfect size for video replays and youtube etc the quality is very good and has a compacitive touch screen which is brilliant, there are thousands of compatible apps out there for it it also has a play store with loads of games if that's your fancy ,browsing the internet is fast and very easy to use, google is excellent,another bonus is the kindle apps I downloaded, works...
Summary: I originally bought the Skate just out of curiosity, I wanted to try a phone with a large screen having seen my friends Galaxy S2. Overall I was very pleased with the Skate, it came with Android 2.3 Gingerbread installed the screen is very responsive and is also bright and clear, battery life isn't bad in comparison with other smartphones. Mine came supplied with a 2GB micro sd card installed. Wi-Fi on the phone works well and I found no operational problems at all.
ZTE Skate Sim Free Android Smartphone: THE budget smartphone.

Summary: Anybody whos anybody these days has a smartphone, but if you cant afford a contract then who can really afford the average £400+ price tag? Well thats where the ZTE Skate comes in, known in the uk as the Orange Monte Carlo this phone really matches up to the high end phones as far as the spec is concerned, albeit with a smaller processor. However does the impressive spec translate to a polished and usable phone?
Pros: Incredible features and cracking screen for such a low price.
Cons: Tacky look and the processor's not quite sharp enough for the highest end applications.
All things considered - a nice "budget" android phone.

Summary: I was looking for a replacement for my older Nokia 5800 Symbian based phone that wasn't going to break the bank and decided to give the Skate a go. I did my homework and decided that bang for buck, the Skate seemed to tick the boxes. I've only had the product a couple of days and so should probably not be writing this appraisal so soon but I'll update the review if needs be.
Summary: The first thing I'm going to say is that I got this on Black Friday I paid £149 the phone had been "reduced" from £229 and now the phone is £129! great! thought I'd get that out of the way first. Well the phone for what it is, is a good phone and although I did have a problem making calls ...the person on the other end could not hear me I asked for a replacement and one arrived with me before I had even returned the faulty one!
Summary: i love this phone!! my first smartphone, and its just as good if not better than my friends and families iphones and other smartphones.. there are a few small details that bug me though.. the screen shows the finger prints and smudges, even wiping them off doesnt necessarily help. also when making a call, sometimes the screen goes black while dialing, and you cant get it back until the other side hangs up..
Summary: First note. The 800GHz processor and 512mb of RAM is MORE THAN ENOUGH power needed for what I demand my phone to do. I don't know why Cnet made an issues of this, I can listen to music, text and surf the web all at the same time without any problems! ITS DEFO fast enough. I think this phone is great, as a very social and phone loving 19 yr old this phone is spot on. I would recommend it to anyone of my age group looking for cheap BUT ACE smart phone.
Pros: It's massive screen, good enough camera, very nice to use, 3G and Wifi and Tethering, can hold up to 32GB memory. Most importantly, ITS CHEAP PEOPLE!!!
Cons: Battery life (however for a smart phone with its screen size its really not that bad), touch screen isn't as responsive as the Iphone but is good enough
