ZTE Blade V unboxing and hands-on

ZTE Blade VZTE have had a lot of success with their Blade range of devices and they generally offer good value for money, particularly for the PAYG market.

With the launch of the ZTE Blade V, ZTE are hoping to continue that trend and our review unit, which comes from Virgin Mobile, can be snapped up on PAYG for just £99.99 or if you are a Virgin Media customer, £81.99. That’s great value for a phone with Quad-core 1.2GHz CPU and 4″ 480×800 pixel display.

We’ve always been impressed with ZTE’s build quality and value so can the Blade V impress us again?

In the unboxing video below you can see the ZTE Blade V in more detail. I’ll run though the setup and run a quick benchmark too.
