Expert review by : Niall Magennis (



At just £80 the Blade III offers excellent value for money.

Stylish design ; Display offers good resolution ; Decent camera

Processor isn’t all that speedy ; Camera's autofocus can be a bit iffy ; Not great for 3D gaming

The ZTE Blade III's display looks fairly bright when used indoors, and colours are much bolder and more vivid than on the vast majority of budget phones, so videos actually look top-notch. Its black levels aren’t quite as deep as higher-end mobiles,...

Low-priced Android phones are a mixed bag, on the one hand, they're often better than you'd expect, but on the other there are always compromises made to get a phone out for this sort of money. It becomes even more ridiculous when you consider that...

Amazing price, good screen, minimal ZTE style adjustments,

Camera, can be a bit slow, lack of internal storage

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...

ZTE Blade 3 review


Mid-range features at an entry level price

Cheap ; Sturdy ; Decent feature set

Slow web browsing ; Basic camera ; UI isn't smooth ; No front facing camera

The ZTE Blade 3 is a capable Android handset at a seriously low price. It's difficult to fault considering how little you'll pay for it. It's not the most attractive phone and won't win any prizes for speed, performance or screen quality, but it could...

ZTE Blade 3 review


ZTE's latest addition to the Blade family is the Blade 3, but does this £79 Android smartphone have anything to offer beyond a budget price? Read our ZTE Blade 3 review to find out.

While we find the ZTE Blade 3 and stylish and well-built handset for its budget price, its poor performance means that the Huawei Ascend G330 remains the best budget Android smartphone around and is worth the extra £20.

ZTE Blade 3 review


ZTE is known as a maker of budget handsets, but the company has three distinct inexpensive smartphone ranges. There's Kis at the bottom, Grand at the top and in the middle sits Blade.

A cheap as chips and perfectly pleasant to use prepay smartphone

So, that’s the ZTE Blade III. It is a fair handset for its price, and the fact that ZTE has paid attention to the screen size and produced a reasonably attractive hardware design are both points in its favour. For not too much more money you can get a...

ZTE Blade III review


ZTE is the name behind many own-brand smartphones -- rememberthe Orange San Francisco, T-Mobile Affinity and the Vodafone351? That was them. But the Chinese firm (the letters stand forZhong Xing Telecommunication Equipment) is also making someadvances...

Underpowered processor, old OS, no front-facing camera

ZTE is trying to make a name for itself at the budget end of thesmartphone market but on this evidence it will have to do better.It's nice to have full smartphone capabilities for under a ton, butthe processor's poor performance is likely to leave you...

ZTE Blade 3


We're on the third outing for ZTE's sub-£100 Android smartphone now, and despite its success in the East, the Chinese company's a relative unknown in the UK. Third time's the charm though: this time, the company's gone all out, crafting an Android 4.0...

While top of the line smartphones gets better and better, so do the affordable ones, with tech trickling down in price. The ZTE Blade 3 is a superb example of just how powerful mobiles have become, and with access to the Google Play store for just £69...
