XTE Blade III 8


Our Score:


ZTE Blade III 1

Depth of field tricks are difficult to pull off due to the auto-focus.

ZTE Blade III 3

Outdoor image often tend to look under exposed.

ZTE Blade III 2

Despite the lack of an LED flash, indoor shots in less than ideal lighting conditions don't look too bad.

Considering I got mine brand new at a Virgin store for £57:99 in June 2013, not such a bargain.

This was the worst cell phone I ever have had! No flash. Hardly couldn't see anything on screen outdoors. Difficult to use (I'm used to Nokia and Samsung).
The screen easily broke. Now I'll get me a Samsung!

This was the best phone I have ever had, I love it! Really worth getting.

Huawei Y300 is £69 in carphone warehouse, unlocked, IPS screen virtually the same spec + JellyBean. All it needs is to have either Go launcher or Apex launcher installed to get rid of Huawei's interface.

Glad I bought the Y300.

According to Trusted Reviews, the camera on the Huawei Y300 is 'rubbish', yet it gets the same camera score (6) as this one, which they seem to to say is good.

How does that work?

My bad - they actually give the camera on this one 7, but the sample images don't look any better tbh.

This is my second phone from ZTE and it has been horrible. The phone's battery indicator does not work, it jumps between 90%+ battery to 5% randomly. The phone regularly crashes and restarts itself. Applications seldom work as they also force the phone to crash. Overall, the phone is horrible and it is not worth the low price.

Similarly the ZTE Dublin was a horrible phone. Its internal memory could not support applications and transferring them to SD cards did not work.

Don't trust ZTE phones.

Have same problems with Blade III. I even tried to install new Android OS and it was done by person who knows how to do it. Now he hates me. Couldn't do nothing. Doesn't know if the problem is with phone's ROM or with local operator.

This is by far the worst smartphone I've ever had. It's so bad, that it's extremely hard to find things that actually work. While it was "quite acceptable" for the first days, it quickly started to get worse and worse. Apps are constantly crashing and opening one (just one!) app is the shit! It's extremely slow (for instance, booting takes about 5 minutes, unlocking takes about 30 seconds, opening an app, like WhatsApp... well, better wait for Christmas... or the fucking apocalypse).
There's only one thing you can do with it. As it gets hot in a blink (clicking anywhere on the display is enough), it's actually a good pocket heater.

The plug adapter doesn't work properly. A weird sound from the wall socket and it takes too long to charge the battery. I put the adapter in the recycle bin.
