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.

Recommended!

ZTE Kis

 

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...

Attractive design ; Hopefully dirt-cheap price

Unimpressive processor ; Low resolution screen

"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...

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,...

Budget phones have a place in the world, as not everyone can afford to have the latest and greatest handset. I find reviewing entry level phones harder than the rest. Quite often with no standout features you are left clutching [...

ZTE Kis Review

 

The ZTE Kis is a budget handset that tries hard to be something more

Chunky, comfy body; cheap price for Android; reasonable budget display
