ZTE Blade S6 review


ZTE's Blade S6 showcases how well Android 5.0 and a 64-bit chip work together, but it's not the premium device its sharp looks suggest.

ZTE Blade S6 review: A sharp tip


But while flagship phones are the attention-grabbers, the midrange is the bread and butter, in both old and emerging markets. ZTE doesn't have to be reminded of that, having long tapped markets such as China and India. And we're not talking Android One...

5.0" 16M-color 720p IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen ; Android OS v5.0 Lollipop with a ZTE launcher ; Octa-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 & 1GHz Cortex A53; Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615, Adreno 405, 2GB RAM ; 13MP camera with 1080p@30fps video; 5MP...

Non-removable battery of rather small capacity ; Flat minimalist UI may not appeal to everybody

The ZTE Blade S6 is definitely an eye-catcher but the iPhone looks may be doing it more harm than favors at some markets. Apple is a natural target for replicas - there are blatant copycats and then there are phones like the Blade S6, which manage to...

ZTE Blade S6 Smartphone Review


Short blade. ZTE's Blade S6 is located in the upper mid-range. The 5-inch smartphone wants to attract buyers with plenty of RAM, a high-resolution camera, and decent performance. Find out in our review why the phone from China is not very enduring.

Slim and robust casing, Ergonomic shape, Extensive gesture control, LTE and dual-SIM, Decent voice quality, Good cameras, High-contrast IPS screen, Decent performance rates

Non-removable battery, Poor speaker, Phone app in English only, Unmarked touch buttons, Screen's minor bluish cast, Temperature slightly too high, Very high power consumption, Relatively short battery life

Does the design of a smartphone really have to follow that of the iPhone 6 at all costs? Is it so complicated to implement the right language settings in all apps, even for such "exotic" languages like German? Does the marketing term "curved design"...

ZTE Blade S6 Plus review


The ZTE Blade S6 Plus is a wallet-friendly device with a 5.5 inch display, LTE, 64-bit hardware, a great camera, and Android 5.0 lollipop.

Great camera ; Good battery ; 64-bit hardware ; Latest Android OS ; Snappy performance ; Affordable

Internal storage is partitioned ; Unoriginal design

ZTE Blade S6 Review - A cheap iPhone 6 knock-off with great specs


This is the ZTE Blade S6, the smartphone that best resembles the Apple iPhone 6. And as much as I hate to compare seemingly standard features to an iPhone, it's almost impossible for me not to with the Blade S6.

Let me know what your thoughts are about this device. Do you guys care if the design is basically a rip-off of the Apple iPhone 6 or does it not bother you?

ZTE Blade S6 review: A dual-SIM, 4G smartphone for less than $300


A budget smartphone worth your time

Well backlit 5-inch screen ; 4G and dual-SIM ; Good 13MP and 5MP camera performance for its price ; Near stock Android 5.0 software

Expandable storage does not support 64GB and above ; Battery life could be better ; Unoriginal styling

ZTE Blade S6


The ZTE Blade S6 is a sub-£200 phone, putting it in the increasingly crowded mid-range zone. It's more expensive than a Motorola Moto G, but does it justify the extra money?

Good screen ; Smooth design ; Decent CPU

Awkward, issue-afflicted camera ; Patchy UI ; Feels cheaper than it looks

ZTE Blade S6 review


Derivative looks do no favours, but there's a lot to love on the inside

Strong performance ; Capable camera ; Good price ; Decent screen

Cheap design ; Bad speaker ; Mediocre battery ; Iffy capacitive keys

Decent specs and a lightly skinned Android 5.0 Lollipop are spoiled by a cheap and nasty design, but the ZTE Blade S6 remains good value for those who can look beyond its external flaws.
