ZTE Blade V9 Smartphone Review


Are we wandering in the dark? ZTE promises buyers of the Blade V9 better photos in bad lighting. We were not quite convinced by the low-light feature. In this review, we want to clarify whether or not the Blade V9's night shots are still better than...

13 MP front camera ; solid battery life ; good headset ; silicone shell and headset included ; low price

front and back very prone to fingerprints ; disappointing Super-Night camera mode ; smooth glass surfaces prevent a firm grip on the phone

Users looking for a phone without contract or those who simply want a low-priced smartphone with a premium design would be well advised to take a look at the Blade V9 by ZTE. The V9 has ample performance for most applications and runs games well, too....

ZTE Blade V9 review: Great but not the best buy


During the ZTE event held in Barcelona just before the official opening of the Mobile World Congress, the Chinese company launched its new mid-range smartphone, the ZTE Blade V9. We've had the opportunity to get to know the device, and so far the new...

ZTE Blade V9 Vita review


Could be the cheapest phone with 18:9 screen yet

18:9 screen on a budget ; Dual-lens camera on back ; Likely at an affordable price

Limited performance ; Not as stylish as the V9

The Blade V9 Vita may be the cheapest way to upgrade to an all-screen phone thanks to its bezel-reduced 5.5-inch display. It's the lite version of the ZTE Blade V9 with a more compact size and budget specs to match, just in case you want today's tall...

ZTE Blade V9 review


This budget phone wears a convincing flagship mask

Impressive design ; Near stock Android ; Tons of welcomed features

Might cost too much ; Won’t work on all carriers ; Appears quite fragile

The Blade V9 is designed to attract those with a taste for premium tech. With a stack of features, and impressive design both in and out, this is one to watch out for.
