ZTE Blade V7 Lite Review – What You Pay for is What You Get

The ZTE Blade V7 Lite comes into the market as a budget-friendly offering, and that sector is now literally riddled with models. So where does this smartphone place itself to distinguish itself from the rest of the competition? Well, it is respectably cheap, and the overall performance won’t give you much to complain about, but there’s nothing worthy of praise here either. You will be able to take advantage of a pretty decent 5-inch display, a fingerprint sensor (which is a nice touch), and a decent build quality. It can handle the basic tasks, such as texting, calling, surfing the web, and checking on social media, pretty well.

ZTE Blade V7 Lite Review - What You Pay for is What You Get

The ZTE Blade V7 Lite Can Handle the Basics Well

If you’re a fan of ZTE’s smartphones, then the ZTE Blade V7 Lite might give you a sense of déjà vu. This is because it looks very identical to the ZTE Blade S6; well, at least at first glance, anyway. There’s still that iPhone-esque profile, and it also comes with curved corners and straight edges. Furthermore, there’s still that same capacitive back, home, and menu keys. What’s surprising in that regard is that it still shares the exact same flaw – only the home key is marked. As for the other two buttons, there’s nothing, so new users would have to make for a bit of “hit or miss” on them.

With these being said with regards to its design, the Blade V7 Lite still doesn’t offer anything intuitive in terms of looks. As such, it won’t woo a lot of people, and it might even be difficult to recommend, especially for the fashion-conscious individual. But turn the phone around, and the differences between this and the Blade S6 will become apparent.

Turn on the 5-inch display, and you will be graced with a 720p resolution screen. In other words, this is not the sharpest screen on the planet, but as mentioned earlier, you don’t get enough room to complain after seeing its price tag. But even though images are not the sharpest in the bunch, the colors are reasonably well-balanced, but it does bring about a bluish, cooler-tone to whatever is being displayed on the screen.

In terms of performance, the ZTE Blade V7 Lite definitely shows its price class in this department. It is powered by a rather lowly Mediatek MT6735P CPU, which is mated to a decent 2GB of RAM. But because of the dated processor, overall performance is sluggish. But once again, you don’t have enough room to complain because of where its price is placed.
