ZTE Blade X3

Design and Display

For the price, the ZTE Blade X3 looks decently appealing, partly helped by its slightly-rounded edges. This, however, is not exactly thin or lightweight at 8.9 millimetres and 160.9 grams respectively.

It sports similar display as the ZTE Blade X5 – a 5-inch unit with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. The device promises decently enjoyable wide-angle viewing given the use of an IPS panel.

Camera and Storage

The ZTE Blade X3 offers an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and LED flash for impressive shots in dimly-lit environment. The shooter supposedly can record 1080p videos at 30 fps.

You will also find a 5-megapixel snapper that looks ready to serve up some great selfies on the front. For keeping your photos and other files, you get onboard storage with a capacity of 8 GB. The phone can take up to 32GB microSD card for storage expansion.

Performance and Operating System

With a quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor clocked at 1.0 GHz under the hood, the ZTE Blade X3 doesn’t appear to promise much by the way of performance.

The meagre 1 GB of RAM somewhat confirms that this is a device that will appeal most to entry-level users. In terms of the operating system, the smartphone boots Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box.

Other Features

A major highlight of the Blade X3 is its 4,000mAh Li-Ion battery. This juicer puts the phone in the same category as the likes of the Gionee Marathon M5 Mini and Huawei Honor Holly 2 Plus. You virtually need not be carrying a power bank or charger around with this one.

The ZTE Blade X3 is a dual-SIM device with support for incredibly fast 4G LTE connectivity. Other standard connectivity features are also in the mix.

Pricing and Availability

ZTE Blade X3 is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. ZTE Blade X3 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N35,000 to N55,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
