If you are looking for a phone that can deliver a commendable performance at an affordable price tag, then the ZTE V7 should be a smartphone that you should seriously consider owning. Although it is priced similarly to entry-level phones, the Blade V7’s features give it the capacity to compete with smartphones that are priced higher. ZTE might still be relatively unknown thus far in the smartphone market, but with the Blade V7, the brand is giving more well-known brands a run for their money.
One of the key highlights of the Blade V7 is its exterior design. The device's body is fully covered in aluminium, giving it a sleek and premium look that makes it stand out from other devices in the same price category which tends to be clad in plastic. Although the overall design is simplistic, the metal body gives it a polished finish, increasing the Blade V7’s visual appeal.
With a 1920 x 1080 screen display, the V7 is capable of producing crisp and accurate colours with good contrast. The brightness levels produced by the high-resolution screen are also impressive, enabling content that are displayed on the screen to be legible even under direct sunlight. This is a commendable feat for a smartphone in the low- to mid-range category.
Embedded in the internals of the V7 lies a MediaTek MT-6753 octa-core processor, combined with 2GB RAM that are the main contributors to the smartphone’s overall smooth performance on a routine basis. This combination of specifications is considered impressive, as most smartphones of this category are only equipped with quad-core processors and 1GB RAM. The octa-core processors generate plenty of power for smooth everyday operations, including apps, music streaming, and gaming.
Possessing a 13MP camera at the rear with a dual-LED flash, the V7 is more than capable of capturing your life’s memorable experiences. The camera also features face detection technology, auto-focus touch focus, HDR as well as panorama settings for more versatility and better photo quality. The 13MP camera also records 1080p video at 30 fps.
