The ZTE Blade 3 is the latest mobile to be unveiled by the Chinese company and it's an affordable Android smartphone. The good news is that it's already available to buy in the UK from Virgin Media for just £69.99.
So what do you get for your money ?
Well, the ZTE Blade 3 offer excellent value because it comes with a 4 inch TFT touch-screen display that runs at 800 x 480 pixels. While, it is powered by a 1 GHz processor and has 512MB of RAM which stacks up pretty well against other smartphones in its price range.
The smartphone has 4GB of on-board memory which can be expanded by another 32GB with a microSD card. While, it comes pre-loaded with Android Ice Cream Sandwich and has a 5 mega-pixel camera. Battery life should also be pretty reasonable thanks to the inclusion of a 1600 mAH battery.
What are the ZTE Blade III's main rivals ?
The main alternatives to the ZTE Blade III are the HTC Desire C, Samsung Galaxy Mini and the Samsung Galaxy Ace. ZTE's new smartphone stacks up pretty well against those rivals and we hope to review the ZTE Blade III very soon.
