Not a lot of 4-inch smartphones out there that’s priced under P10k but the ZTE Blade III is. ZTE phones fall alongside brands like Cherry Mobile and Alcatel offering affordable smartphones with decent specs. If you remember Smart’s Netphone 701, it is based on the first ZTE Blade.
The ZTE Blade III is a 4-inch phone that runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It is powered by a first-generation single-core Qualcomm 1GHz processor with 512MB RAM. Internal storage is limited at just 2.5GB but you can rely on microSD for storage expansion.
Other features include a 5-megapixel autofocus camera (no flash), FM Radio, Bluetooth, WiFi, 3G and that’s it. The ZTE Blade III is as plain as it gets for only Php8,990.
