What about the dodgy caps lock button

i've had this phone since it was last on HUKD (like 5 months ago?) Probably the best budget smartphone i've ever bought.

ive had a s6 prior to this. for daily tasks, it performs the same. Whatsapp (video calls too), GPS whilst driving, browsing, email and youtube. I dont play games so i dont know about that. Battery life is solid too.

Camera is good, but as you snap it takes a while before the picture saves and you can take another. i think this is worse when your storage is closer to being full. Not sure.

unlocked with a 99p ebay code. If you need a phone to do what most phones do these days, and you're a fan of android, i personally cant think of a better option for the price. ive dropped it numerous times and its still performing well.

feels like a burner smartphone lol.

I'm buying a PAYG phone not a gun!

Yeah but it went up to £99 at one point i think

Easy to unlock via ebay code

Tempted to get this as a work phone. Heat.

Already on vodafone PAYG ,anyway to get this on existing SIM don't mind paying the top-up but don't want new SIM with top-up on it and need it delivered as nearest store is 22 miles away.?.

Will they add the £10 credit to an existing SIM?

Good phone, better deal than when I bought it for my Dad.

Internal memory16GB, RAM 2GB, Battery capacity 2540 mAh

That's pretty good for under £100

Bit of advice please...... ?
Looking for a new phone for my 12 yo daughter so will mainly be used for instagram and taking photos I suspect. Just signed up for the Plusnet £5 deal and I was thinking about Moto E for about £120 but this is half the price nearly. Is it worth paying extra for the Moto E?

This has more RAM and storage than my Samsung J5 which is about 18 months old!

Thanks in advance

Not many reviews, found this on Youtube though - I have had ZTE in the past and they are fine initially but don't expect any updates in 6 months time.

Got the Blade for the mother-in-law a few months back when first on offer and for the money can't see a better phone from a UK high Street retailer. Had already bought the Amazon exclusive 3gb ram Moto G5 for around £170 for my wife, but if the Blade was around then and knowing what I know now I would of saved my money and got the Blade. In day to day use can't tell much of a difference between a £70 and £170 phone

Unless she had a better phone than this previously, I'd go for this - I'm getting it for my 11 year old daughter - my son has the Moto and I don't think they will be able to tell the difference!

Great phone, bought a couple when they were £65 plus £10 topup sim. Very fast phone, battery lasts a good while. Nice screen. Unfortunately not dual sim otherwise would have had one for myself, but got a Redmi 4a for similar price, which is kind of the same spec (though the Redmi had 32gb storage vs the ZTE's 16gb), though the ZTE feels a more premium product

Wouldn't you return it to them if you had issues after a few weeks?

to be honest i sold it for more than i paid i paid £69 when it came out sold it for £85 as it went up in price and i had it unlocked.

I can only see an option to add a bundle which renews every 30 days not for a single £10 top up .

I have had this phone for a few months the only issue I have had is the alarm clock. I have set it and sometimes the phone has switched itself off during the night. Also I have not found this problem with Samsung and Iphones when I have put the phone on silent the alarm is also silent. It is a great phone though.

Bet they were happy with you...

Decent specced cheap phone. If it would of had a Mediatek chip I would of advised to stay clear however seen as its Snapdragon it's worth its price.

I'd buy it but I don't want to have to pay £10 for a sim

In the absence of many reviews, its a bargain for the price/specs

Any the caps lock is fecked on your current phone, your just jinxed!

If you're gonna spend £70 - £90 on a phone, you might as well get a used flagship like the LG G3 from somewhere like MusicMagpie or Argos eBay. No point getting this, the specs are crap.

Which are twice the price of this phone. Good work...

had this phone for a few months before i lost it was a decent phone got it for this price, but jumped up to £110 two months ago couldn't justify the price increase so went for the outkitel k6000 pro haven't looked back since, but this is decent for the price, voted hot

Am I being thick is the £10 bundle a one off top-up , and why do I have to set up a vodafone mobile account just to buy the phone online, do they insist on this in the store.

Anyone remember/have the original blade? It was rather budget but good for its time

I bought a new Sony phone from them a while back...I gave them my current sim and they put the £10 on it and set the phone up in store.
