The ZTE Blade 10 is a Budget-Friendly Big Screen Android Smartphone


The ZTE Blade 10 enters the Android smartphone market, poised to take a slice out of the competition. No matter how you cut it, the Blade 10 packs an impressive list of features at a budget-friendly price. A list of its features includes a large cinematic display, DTS sound, HD optics on both sides of the phone, and sophisticated power-management options.

ZTE Blade 10 64GB Smartphone

When it comes to the display, ZTE went big. Big and wide. The 6.3-inch FHD+ IPS LCD touchscreen sports a 19:9 widescreen aspect ratio. This decision is a double-edged sword in a good way. Your streaming content is more engaging, while the phone remains slim enough for single-handed use. It’s easy to lose yourself in the Blade 10’s hi-def 2280 x 1080 resolution, especially on a visual canvas that seems to take over the entire phone. This is thanks to an 83.4% screen-to-body ratio and super-small water drop notch.

The notch houses a hi-res 16MP f/2.0 camera that’s capable of snapping brilliant stills and Full HD 1080p selfie videos. On the rear of the Blade 10 is a dual-camera system with another 16MP camera (f/1.8) and a 5MP f/2.2 depth sensor. The depth sensor can create smooth, bokeh-blurred backgrounds for portraits that pop. The mobile photography options of the Blade 10 also include HDR and panorama modes, an LED flash for low-light images, and the ability to record Full HD 1080p/30 videos.

The Blade 10’s video and camera capabilities are supported by a 3200mAh LiPo battery and ZTE’s battery-optimization controls. With Power-Saver and Ultra Power-Saver options, you can maximize the battery life of the Blade 10 to match how you use the phone more efficiently. For those that don’t want to manage their power usage manually, ZTE offers an Adaptive Battery setting. Tap it on to have the Blade 10 dynamically manage its system resources to improve battery life.

To help ensure that all your mobile activities run smoothly, ZTE supplies the Blade 10 with 2.0 GHz of processing power from the Mediatek MT6771 Helio P60 octa-core chipset and 3GB of RAM. Advanced graphics are handled by the phone’s Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. Whether you pack the Blade 10 full of HD videos, hi-res photos, games, or apps; ZTE knows you’ll need somewhere to store it all. The generous 64GB of storage built into the Blade 10 can be further expanded via an (optional) microSD card up to an astounding 2TB in size.

Additional convenience features further work to improve the experience of using the Blade 10. Listen to audio through the built-in speaker, or with a pair of headphones through the 3.5mm jack. When taking phone calls, the Blade 10 can deliver clear conversations, thanks to a dedicated microphone with active noise cancellation. Protecting your content and personal information is a rear-mounted fingerprint reader.

The Blade 10 shows that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a lot of phone. An unlocked, GSM/LTE-compatible model with dual-SIM capabilities is available right now at B&H.
