Like other budget handsets in Virgin Media’s catalogue, the ZTE Blade III won’t stick out from the masses with its entry-level specs. Its discreet appearance may not scare anyone off either. The performance should be on a level we can expect for the £50 to £100 price range.
A little bit of stutters and waiting should be expected. The build quality is mostly decent with acceptable build quality. Although the display seems to have a bluish cast to it, images representations are mostly appealing.
The ZTE Blade III has a 4-inch TFT display with WVGA resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio. Overall, the display looks rich in color and thoroughly focused. The Qualcomm Snapdragon A1 MSM7227A 1GHz single-core processor is paired with 512MB of RAM.
There’s no front-facing shooter for self-portraits and video chat sessions. The small camera on the rear has only 5Mp resolution with autofocus but without LED flash. The ZTE Blade III is currently available on Virgin Media’s network for £79 with Pay As You Go plan.
