ZTE Blade Spark

by ZTE
4/ 5

With its relatively small price tag, specifications blade Spark at the right low Quad-core, Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with a frequency of 425 SoC with a clock frequency of 1.4 GHz, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of memory, expandable via microSD. The display is big enough with a diagonal of 5.5 inches, but not very sharp, at a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Cameras sound good on paper, with 13 megapixels matrix-assisted sensor on the rear and 5MP snapper on the front. The kit included a fingerprint scanner on the back. Given that this is a phone that is better designed for use of light, its 3,140 mAh battery seems very generous and will probably last for some time. Blade Spark comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.
