Great value and great phone
The screen, 5 inch, is fantastic vivid and bright. It is thin and elegent. The camera is also cool, great pics with quick shutter!
The software is neat too, typical android experiences. The signal is good( I am with T-Mobile).
I thinks this is a more than I pay for the value I get. I used to carry a GS III, and compare these two, spec wise it is almost the same. With the price I payed, it is better value!
Very low price point
Firefox OS isn't even in its infancy yet, but it's clear that Mozilla, operators and manufacturers have one thing in mind for the OS - budget handsets for developing markets and the ZTE Open is a colourful, cheap option. We probably won't see the OS on high end handsets any time soon, but that's no bad thing - while Firefox OS is likeable and flexible, it's hardly iOS or Android-beating in terms of feature set.
Cheery and colourful little smartphone
The ZTE Open combined with Firefox OS will make for a cheap and cheerful option for users in emerging markets looking for a first smartphone. However, in the UK Mozilla will be up against serious competition so will need a different approach to succeed.
Extremely economical, Factory unlocked, Well built for the price
The ZTE Open is basically a smartphone for people who don't really need most of the bits of a smartphone. If you want to just check the weather report, maybe look up a factoid or news story on the go, the ZTE Open is a useful and economical way to do that, while still being able to take advantage of those cheap prepaid plans. For the more tech-savvy people and smartphone enthusiasts, it's probably too limited to be worthwhile even once the software side catches up.
Cheap, Sturdy, Decent feature set
The ZTE Blade 3 isn't a polished offering but we can almost forgive it when we are reminded of its price tag. This is a cheap and cheerful handset aimed at giving people an entry point to the smartphone market.
While it could be tidied up round the edges, made to run a little smoother and upgraded to the latest Jelly Bean version of Android, we are suitably impressed with the Blade 3 as an entry-level device.
Stylish design, Display offers good resolution
The ZTE Blade III is far from being the fastest phone around, but what it lacks in speed it makes up for with excellent design, an impressive touchscreen display and a rock bottom price tag. If you're looking for a sub £100 smartphone, we think the ZTE Blade III is a much better option than the likes of ZTE's own Kis handset or Nokia's Asha range.
Amazing price, good screen
For about £80 we doubt you'll find a more competent phone than the ZTE Blade III. It's solidly built, has enough power for day-to-day phone use and while it won't blow you away with performance, normal users are unlikely to suffer much from the single-core CPU.
The design is reasonable, the ZTE Android customisations are stylish enough - although none of them adds a massive amount to the experience of using the phone they also don't spoil it at all.
Decent battery life
Its hard to argue with a smartphone that can compete with its betters, yet can be purchased for a fraction of the cost. Yes there are flaws and cutbacks to meet the price point, but this is an excellent entry level device for smartphone newbies and pragmatic users who don't need the latest and greatest.
Dual-core Tegra 2, Fast browser
Criticising the ZTE Grand X for its ugly looks, ordinary camera and underwhelming screen almost seems churlish when held against its extraordinary price-performance ratio.
Offering a dual-core processor and stock Android 4.0 OS for less than £200, this is a no-nonsense phone that punches well above its weight.
Solid design, Great value
The ZTE Grand X sees the budget phone maker up its game once more. A dual-core processor and lean software wipes-out the lag of previous lower-cost ZTE Androids, while neat extras such as noise cancellation on calls and a decent internal speaker further wipe away anything approaching a budget vibe. It doesn't have quite the design personality of the alternatives from HTC and Sony, but pound-per-pound you get more for your money here.
Good build quality
ZTE's Grand X delivers well on some levels. The combination of good specifications for less than £200 with unspoilt Android 4.0 makes it an attractive package. It will certainly play games and suits video content too. However, you should take into account the poor cameras and terminal battery life.
A phone that meets most of your needs
First thing to do with this device is the amount of benefits it offers in relation to its price making the cost-benefit ratio is one of the biggest.
The Android version is one of the most updated, holds dual sim and working frequencies gives the same for most providers.
The user experience is exquisite and management software for dual sim works perfectly allowing configure which works by default to send sms, make calls or connect to data.
Pure Ice Cream Sandwich, Dual-core power
The ZTE Grand X puts dual-core power and Android's Ice Cream Sandwich operating system in your pocket for £190 on pay as you go, although you'll need to go to Virgin Media to get it. Buyers should beware of its underwhelming battery life, laggy camera and rubbery, unresponsive touchscreen.
Fast dual-core processor, Ice Cream Sandwich, large, detailed screen
The ZTE Grand X offers a dual-core processor, large screen and Ice Cream Sandwich -- all good things from a midrange Android. But that unresponsive screen, so-so camera and unimpressive battery life show that there's some work to do for ZTE to hold its own against the big boys.
Relatively sleek design
The ZTE Grand X is, all things considered, a perfectly good device. It's cheap, it's got Android 4.0, and - in case I haven't said it enough yet - it's stock. Combine that with a proven, battle-worn processor in the Tegra 2 and it provides all the functions that a user can expect from a modern smartphone, sidestepping the perils of over-design and bloatware.
Excellent price point
For Android nerds, like us, the inclusion of a vanilla build of Android 4.0 on the Grand X is a huge point in its favor. It's unusual, but should hopefully bode well for future updates too. Performance over all is decent without being outstanding, with the Tegra 2 processor propelling things along nicely. Sadly though, marketing this as a gaming device is a little ambitious. But, while software and performance are positive, the build quality of the device lets it down.
Large screen, Unskinned Android 4.0
The ZTE Grand X is unashamedly trying to punch above its price point, and I have to admire that. If you need a good camera and stunning battery life for processor sapping gaming, then look away. On the other hand, if you like the idea of a vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich and a large screen for a reasonable price then this handset might just float your boat.
Really awesome Android phone!
I switched from a Samsung Admire, so I was looking for a phone that had a bigger screen, newer Android version, and 4G LTE. The ZTE Avid 4G has it all. The 5MP camera with flash, the front camera, and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) are pretty nice, as well as the 4" screen (which I didn't think would be big enough, but I was wrong!) I've read that internal storage isn't great. You get over 2GB in the phone itself; I have more apps on this phone than on my Admire.
Brightness is good but washes out severely under the sun
The ZTE Avid 4G's best selling point is the presence of both 4G and Android 4.0. It's a rung down the ladder in performance, though, compared to handsets with similar spes. Regardless, the $149 price point on MetroPCS is sweet, especially without a lock-in contract.
Sturdy, good looking design
It may be a little more costly than competitors like Alcatel's OT-903, but the ZTE Kis more than justifies its slightly higher asking price tag thanks to its higher resolution screen, faster processor and long battery life. The price of Android phones is dropping all the time, but for now at least, this handset offers pretty unbeatable value for money.
Chunky, comfy body, cheap price for Android, reasonable budget display
The Kis may be one of the cheapest smartphones that runs on Android, but it doesn't quite reach the bar, suffering from the odd performance issue.
Very solid build, Loud speaker
The ZTE Kis is one of those phones where you end up saying for the money it is ok. Virgin have added a bonus feature of the years worth of data, this combined with the phone would make an ideal backup phone or a phone for a non demanding child.
So if you're looking for a budget phone head over to the Virgin Mobile page here for only £59.00 to get one.
