Review ZTE Blade III Smartphone


An offer you can't resist? ZTE's Blade III is a 4 inch smartphone

Bright screen; Keyboard features additional input modes; Good GPS module; Clear speech quality; Camera's decent picture quality

Crashes and graphic bugs; Processor's low performance; Unsatisfactory gaming power; Screen's bluish cast; Short battery runtimes

That there is a smartphone for a street price for less than 100 Euros (~$133)...

ZTE Blade III review


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...

Amazing price, good screen, minimal ZTE style adjustments

Camera, can be a bit slow, lack of internal storage

It's £80. Honestly, for that kind of money it could be rude about our mothers and we'd still suggest it's worth buying. It won't set the world alight with its performance, but for a whole section of phone users, all anyone needs is something to call...

At just £80 the Blade III offers excellent value for money.

Stylish design ; Display offers good resolution ; Decent camera

Processor isn’t all that speedy ; Camera's autofocus can be a bit iffy ; Not great for 3D gaming

The ZTE Blade III's display looks fairly bright when used indoors, and colours are much bolder and more vivid than on the vast majority of budget phones, so videos actually look top-notch. Its black levels aren’t quite as deep as higher-end mobiles,...

Underpowered processor, old OS, no front-facing camera

ZTE is trying to make a name for itself at the budget end of thesmartphone market but on this evidence it will have to do better.It's nice to have full smartphone capabilities for under a ton, butthe processor's poor performance is likely to leave you...

An Economic Smartphone : ZTE Blade III


There are more smartphones currently taking up space on retailers' shelves than you could shake a stick at. Many of the more high profile units tend to fall in the expensive category but that is not to say that the budget sector has been ignored by the...

A recent addition to the more affordable smartphone offerings is the ZTE Blade III model which combines a pleasant appearance with some useful features at a price that should not make you wince as you consider the hit on your budget. With dimensions of...
