The three ZTE Blade V series budget phones you can go for this year

ZTE Australia was established in Melbourne in 2004 with a local sales office in the Rialto tower. The initial team worked hard to develop contacts and understanding of the local market conditions to build a strong business foundation to offer and promote a wide range of telecommunications solutions and devices. ZTE has added a couple of new devices to its line up in Australia, growing its presence in the market with one handset headed for Telstra, and the other likely to sell directly via JB HiFi. The two new phones are the Telstra Tough Max (ZTE T84), a follow-up to the tough handset Telstra sold last year named Dave, and the other is the ZTE Blade V.

ZTE have continued to silently produce quality smartphones for an extremely low price. Here find the three ZTE’s budget V series – the more popular V2, V6 and V Plus models. You’ll be amazed at the amount of features ZTE is able to pack in such affordable phones.

1. ZTE Blade V2

ZTE V Series

The phone features 4G/LTE with Band 28, 5″ 720p IPS screen, 8MP and 5MP cameras, 8GB ROM and 1GB RAM.

It is one of the most  affordable of the Blade V models, and has a lot to offer for the price. It has 4G/LTE bands, allowing you to access fast 4G networks, however most impressive is its access to Band 28, an extremely fast band that Telstra and Optus use in cities.

The V2 also has a great 5″ IPS screen, with a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution. This is also very impressive as many other phones near its price range only have 480 x 854 pixels resolution. It’s 8 Megapixel back camera and 5 Megapixel camera is also worthy of note, being able to take decent quality photos despite its cheap price.

One downside is that the ZTE Blade V2 only comes with 8 GB of onboard storage. however that is not a problem as you are able to expand your storage through a MicroSD Card of up to 32 GB if you need extra space.

2. ZTE Blade V6

This phone features 4G/LTE with Band 28, 5″ 720p IPS screen, 13MP and 5MP cameras, 16GB ROM and 2GB RAM.

Like the V2, it also features 4G/LTE connectivity with Band 28, and a 5” IPS screen with 720 x 1280 resolution. However where the V2 really shines is its ability to take high quality photos, featuring a 13 Megapixel back and 5 Megapixel front cameras. This makes it one of the cheapest 13 megapixel camera phones in the market right now, and your friends will never suspect that you have a budget phone with the V6.

The ZTE also improves upon the storage and RAM, having 16 GB of storage and 2 GB of memory. For most light users seeking a budget phone, these are impressive specifications as you’ll be able to download quite a few apps and run them simultaneously.

3. ZTE Blade V Plus

Features at a glance: 4G/LTE with Band 28, 5.5″ Full-HD IPS screen, 13MP and 5MP cameras, 16GB ROM and 2GB RAM

Last but not least this is arguably the best of the ZTE Blade line, the ZTE Blade V plus. As its name suggests, it further improves upon the V6 by featuring a large 5.5 inch Full-HD Screen. With a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, the V Plus is very detailed and bright, making it a great phone to use for reading and watching videos.

The V Plus has a 1.3GHz Octa-Core Processor, making it very snappy and fast for its price. The V Plus also features a fingerprint scanner at the rear under the camera, making unlocking and securing your phone a breeze. With all these features, you can easy justify to why many think the V Plus is a premium phone without the premium price tag.
