ZTE Kis 3 Max review


More fudges than features with this budget handset

Cheap ; Nice design ; Decent rear camera ; Good front camera ; OK build quality

Very underpowered ; Poor app performance ; Poor sound quality ; Android 4.4 performs slow ; Small internal storage

The ZTE Kis 3 Max looks great and is very cheap, but it's let down by some very underpowered hardware.

ZTE Kis White review


Affordable, 2GB microSD storage included (expandable), good telephony experience, responsive touchscreen

Screen viewing angle isn't great, none too powerful, slow browsing and app loading

If you're in the market for a budget mobile phone then they don't come cheaper than the ZTE Kis. The white version we've reviewed here looks rather fetching too - or at least it certainly punches well beyond its £50 handset price tag. That's not to say...

ZTE Kis review


Can ZTE break from its network-branded roots with this budget offering?

Decent keyboard ; Stylish design ; Loud rear speaker ; Responsive ; 12 months' free data

Very poor viewing angle ; No Flash support ; Lack of Facebook ; Tiny internal storage ; Bloatware

Buying GuideBest Android phone The ZTE KIS was clearly designed to be a budget phone. The low-powered internal components really leave a lot to be desired, as do the external components, namely the screen.

ZTE Kis 3 review


Motorola set a new benchmark for budget smartphones with the launch of the Moto G and until recently anything under £100 wasn't really worth consideration. However, the Moto E and Nokia Lumia 520 are both good options. The Nokia Asha 503 is cheap at...

If you want a smartphone to do the basics at the cheapest possible price, the ZTE Kis 3 is the phone for you. It's surprisingly decent considering how cheap it is. Forget the camera, but performance is good and it doesn't look too bad either. Those...

A surprisingly capable little Android handset at a rock-bottom price.

Low price ; Sturdy, good looking design ; Long battery life ; Good performance for the price

Camera could have been a little bit better

It may be a little more costly than competitors like Alcatel's OT-903, but the ZTE Kis more than justifies its slightly higher asking price tag thanks to its higher resolution screen, faster processor and long battery life. The price of Android phones...

ZTE Kis review


Usually we shy away from introductory paragraphs about how expensive things used to be and how cheap they are now, but the falling prices of Android smartphones justify just such a tired intro format. Two years ago the idea of a pay-as-you-go...

Even cheaper than it appears, and with no major flaws, the ZTE Kis an incredible bargain

ZTE Kis hands-on


The ZTE Kis isn't the most powerful phone on the market, but if you're looking for a reasonably stylish entry into the smart phone world, its low price and unusual looks might make it a good option.

Attractive design ; Hopefully dirt-cheap price

Unimpressive processor ; Low resolution screen

ZTE Kis Review: In Depth


"As a user of this phone i can say its a great device You cannot find a better phone for the money. This phone is fantastic. It's thin, solidly built, very brisk to respond, and It's fast and easy to use.I should first mention that sound quality for...

Great price ; Solid build ; Zippy performance

Poor screen ; Busy user interface ; Low internal memory

We're hard pressed to complain too much about the ZTE Kis when the asking price isn't much more than that of a video game, so we'll keep it short. The screen is lacklustre, the UI graphics are overbearing and the operating system is out of date. In the...

ZTE Kis 3 Max review


The ZTE Kis 3 Max does indeed improve on the original Kis 3. Unfortunately, that's not really saying much.

Slimmer casing, improved camera, recent Android, still very cheap

Sub par screen and processor, not very distinctive

Time for a Kis : ZTE Kis


According to the Beatles, “All we need is Love” and ZTE in partnership with Virgin Media would like to help the world go around with the release of its White Kis offering in time for the forthcoming festive season.

While the name of ZTE does not readily trip lightly off the tongue nor will it feature too prominently on some users recognition scale, this Chinese company is certainly making its presence felt in the marketplace. According to a recent announcement,...
