stay with your mini with mediocre resolution
..yea.when you upgrade to another o.s it doesn't mean you can't downgrade to the stock o.s it came with for warranty purposes ..bet you didn't know that...am on a Gen 2 blade running cyanogen 7.1..it was originally a Gen 1 blade with v2.1 eclair..if i wanted to reset the phone as it were it would just take me at most 3 minutes
being Gen 1 or 2 doesn't have anything to do with the type of screen you have..as i said mine was a Gen 1 with a tft screen...and you are wrong
.orange Kenya sells the blades with Tft only..the OLED ones were the very first to come out..by then orange Kenya had not started selling the blade..
dial. *983*24474636# in the dialer - if "Glass"
is "Samsung" then your phone has an
OLED screen. "Lead" or "Truly" means you
have a TFT screen...try this on stock rom..i
if you are Gen 1 i suggest you convert to Gen 2 since most Roms now are for Gen 2..we also have Gen 3..you can still convert ..
How long will the battery last if I use it for textin (ALOT) and browsing (not wifi) ...
This phone defines everything i need in aphone!! it's off the hook.

What matters is getting rid of the installed orange garbage and installing a stable,clean, fast O.S. I installed Swedish Spring RLS5.

AMOLED is far superior and is not incorporated into cheap phones like San Francisco.
The galaxy mini is way much better except frm the screen,if u buy it in an orange shop(kenya)once you unlock it and upgrade to frayo or anyother then the warranty is void.its nt worth it.
Hello I am thinking of buying this phone on monday is it worth it? Am buying it in Kenya from an Orange shop Does anyone know where I can get an Amoled and not TFT? Thank you
Ok .then maybe comparing the resolution is wrong,..but still galaxy mini has flash player.. Blade doesnt..and the bluetooth is WAAAY FASTER..so is battery. Anyway I ended up buying this phone yesterday and am liking it.. The camera is trash..bt thats where my poket camera comes inAm thinking of upgradin its android version.
Bought my ZTE Blade (Orange San Francisco) in August 2011, from the Orange shop. Worked a treat up until a few weeks ago, then the battery wouldn't charge. Ordered a new one, replaced. Still wouldn't charge. Ordered a new charger from Amazon. Still won't charge unless you leave it plugged in for over 24 hours (and yes I try it in different sockets, clean out the ports etc) Any help??
and can you really compare a Tft at 240 x 320 and one at 480 x 800..267 pixel density vs 127??
you must be very nocturnal if you're buying a phone to take photos in the evenings...haha..no offence intended..and by the way the camera quality of the blade improves a lot when its upgraded to froyo or gingerbread..
I don't know where you people are buying your blade..bought mine from orange shop at the gpo..came with 512mb of ram..am also very sure if it came with 256mb the extra 256mb is probably locked..you can use a patch to unlock it..who said the galaxy mini has better 3g?? check your specs properly..tft has its a
pros and cons..I would choose the blade over the mini anytime..that's why I bought..
I bought mine Gen 1 but now its Gen 2 running cyanogen 7.1(gingerbread 2.3.7)..already tried the alpha version of ICS..its promising..
since the ones in Kenya are tft screen, its much better to buy a samsung galaxy mini even though the screen is smaller (but still big) since it has better 3g speed,bluetooth technology,camera (during evenings) etc. Or does anyone think otherwise
