Looks pretty solid spec negatives being battery size and screen resolution everything else looks pretty balanced for a budget phone

yeah its similar specs to wileyfox swift 2 and huawei p8 lite which are double price nearly im really fussy with phones and find it great only problem case i like from spain but works fine for me
zte are always ****
Decent spec for the money. Biggest issue is having to deal with Vodafone in case of warranty issue,assuming their website will allow you to buy the phone.
great price but its the old added vodafone are grim at best
2gb ram.... Very good price

No they're not!
Look at specs look at price....

Wipe it ... Unlock it
It's not Vodafone.... ZTE are established
Since the good old days of The San Fran
Main thing is this phone has 2gb ram and Marshmallow and for £75
Is this Dual Sim ?
Looks decent value ,just wondering if 720 x 1280 pixels on a 5.2 inch phone might be a bit low.
OP can you give us a little review please?

I've watched some YouTube videos and it looks pretty good

No compass it seems but neither has Moto 4G..... How is the battery?
The size draws me to this phone 5.2 screen is sensible imo. Screen ok? No gorilla glass i guess .... Does it pick.up fingerprints ie greasy marks,?

Cheers for any feedback :-)
Voted hot

the camera seems quick and takes decent pics for me. it doesnt seem to slow down that much i use a case and screen protector with mine so finger prints dont bother me. it really worth the money

ZTE are fine though it's Vodafone that deal with the warranty. I voted hot though I'm far from alone in experiencing Vodafone customer (dis) service.

£77, amazon lightning deal, arguably better spec, with 5.5" screen and fingerprint reader and sony camera.

Is one of the sim slots shared with the micro sd slot (ie you can only use dual sim without storage?)

So is this dual sim? Seems odd that vodafone would sell a dual sim phone, or are both sim slots locked to O2?

I believe its either sim and sim or sim and sd. Although you can remove the metal part of the sim and glue it to the back of the sd card supposedly.
downside is doesn't have quick charge I just tested it with a quick charge 2.0 and doesn't charge quick and I did search online and gsmarena as no mention of quick charge and few other sites mention same
anyone else have this phone. it seems to cheap. I been offered a p9 £130 with slight crack on the edge. but this is cheaper and new

When you say p9 do you mean p9 or p9 lite as there is a huge difference... To be fair both are better than this. The p9 would be substantially better.

a shop near me has a p9 for £150. it says slight damage but will sell it to me for £130. i have not looked at the phone yet. its definatly the p9 and not the lite version

sounds dodge that a shop would be willing to sell the p9 so cheap. go have a play with it make sure everything working, make sure it is definately the p9 & note the lite version (easy to tell them the difference metal body plastic body & 2 rear cam v 1) but it all seems ok then its defo the better deal

Where did you get the unlock code from


Looking to replace my Nexus 5 which had served me well for the last 3 years or so! Been looking at the threads on the various 'cheap' phones from China when I stumbled across a comment regarding this phone/deal. I'm already on Vodafone (£5/Month SIM Only Deal through work) so this ZTE Blade is tempting. Has anyone else other than the OP got any feedback?
Picked one up just over a week ago. Finally got a new Nano-SIM earlier this week & so far so good with the phone.

Thanks OP
