It also seems that the phone is no longer being produced with a AMOLED screen.
In the UK, it is reported that Orange have begun shipping phones(both Grey+White versions) with TFT screens rather than AMOLED. However it is still capacitive and 800x480 resolution.

Ppl on forums said that there are few specifications of this model in Europe - "Orange" (OLED screen+3mpx) and "Original ZTE" (tft screen+5mpx). Another one issue - some phones has problems with touch screen (could be returned to seller - guarantee covers). So the question is - is that true about 2nd specs (tft+5mpx)? Another one Chinese tricks? ;)

I was going to install android 2.2 on my phone but i read the reviews and they arent good. people have said that the icons appear smaller and so does the keypad, making it quite hard to type. Im just waiting and hoping that they bring a newer version of Android out for this phone, as it seems pretty slow compared to the 2.2 platform

In Saunalahti(FI) pages the camera is mentioned to be 5.0 Mpix whereas on your pages it says 3.15 Mpix?! Samsung Galaxy Spica camera with 3.15 Mpix is horrible, totally unbearable.

If ZTE Blade goes on 3.15M and the same chips as Spica, you can just forget it about the camera...

I had exactly the same problem. It is all down to drivers for this phone. If you go into Device Manager you will see that there are drivers missing. The answer is to do what I had to. Go to the following link for the solution, It worked for me.

If camera's quality being apart of my consideration it's strong value smart phone for 159 euro at Greece.
At that price it is affordable to buy someone new phone every year.

Can someone please help me on getting clockwork recovery on this phone.
First I downloaded fastboot.
I put the phone on fastboot mode and put into pc.
I opened command prompt and typed in "recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.3-blade.img"­ and pressed enter.....power iso opens up and is says the format is invalid.
Next in the command prompt I wrote "fastboot windows" with its correct directory....
it then shows a list of things in the command prompt that makes it look like the phone is ready for clockwork recovery.
However the phone does not load up in clockwork recovery but it show the letters "FTM" in a white box.

There is two kinds of this cellphone and they both have 150 mb it isn't the problem lots of android phone have same or lover amount of memory for usage. Ram memory is the crucial thing. If u put 2.2 version of android u wouldn't have any problems with xour device.


Can someone confirm that t mobile version has 512 ram or less because it has (tft screen) and organge version has 512 ram and (amoled screen)?

Are there any issues with the default internal memory being only 150Mb? I heard that ZTE blade in some countries will be providing the internal memory of 512Mb. My question is that could there be any performance degradation of having a very small internal memory or it would not matter as long as I could add a bigger micro SD card for external memory? Is internal memory implies to RAM only? So what could be the performance difference if there are two ZTE Blade phones side-by-side both having 16Gb external memory but one having 150Mb internal memory & the other having 512Mb internal memory...?
