God Bless ZTE, still love this phone. Wrote about it before it was shown on GSM Arena, and thank GSM Arena for giving it space. It is not as I initially thought a 'poor man's HTC Desire', it is great in its own right. I actually prefer this phone to the desire, I still think the screen is BETTER, looked at the two side by side often and can state that the ZTE Blade's screen is A. Brighter and B. is more scratch resistant. So HTC, why are you so expensive? Better Audio and faster processor, that's it to me. Ok the power button is fidly on Blade, and back cover not perfect, but its a 1/4 of the price of a desire. Well done ZTE, cannot wait for your next phone! (Ps, please don't put lcd screens in these phones). Pps, I like your racer too, Ok its SLOW, has a resistive screen, and does scratch easily, but its got style and for a casual phone thats cheap and plays mp4 movies and good for navigation, its great value.
Awsome phone, 2/3 the power of nexus one, and 1/5 the price, also has a great support forum for removing bloatware and flashing here:
where did u find that kind of information pleas share with us the link pls?
I learn from friend in ZTE blade with Android 2.2 will first launch in bulgaria Feb next year.I just bought it in Hungary,every thing is ok except it only Eclair not Froyo,looking forward it can been upgrade to Android 2.2 with Hungary version.
kostas, 09 Dec 2010Greek version has 256 MB RAM :(unfortunately Yes
thats why i am trying to find Uk version
also Uk version has amoled screen not tft
Wrong sentece Samsung isn't only manufacturer who is making amoled screens for cellphones. It's only manufacturer for super amoled screens.
Amoled isn't the only manfacturer who is making amoled screeens for cell phones. UK oled => amoled screen and for all versions memory of mobile phone is 200 mb but that isn't ram memory.
legnaw, 09 Dec 2010WHERE has blade amoled??? ive seen only OLED (as Orange SanFrancisco) or TFT (f.e. Hungary)@ legnaw,
It is...it's an Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode screen..and it's made by Samsung, so.......

Magnumutz, 08 Dec 2010Has Froyo been brought to this smartphone, or are they working on it (officially)?No official Froyo-update yet, but there should be one within a month or so. Got one of these yesterday and had to recharge after 18h of use (2h Angry Birds, 2h surfing the web over 3G) Guess I need to get some software to help the battery last longer.
Finland version has Tft screen , 512 ram and 5 Mpix camera (189 €),
Hungarian version has Tft screen, 256 or 512 ram and 3 mpix camera (36091= 130 €),
UK version has Amloled screen, 512 ram and 3 Mpix camera (99 £ = 117.60 €).
Can someone tell me what is corect amount of RAM for hungarian version of zte blade ? Second why is there that much differece between thes models which are basicly Same mobile phone from one manufacturer?

/with some gradient display eror and sometimes (sub)pixel errors/
What about Ram of these two models? I know that UK version has 512 ram but i don't know about hungaryan or other.
djbaltazar, 06 Dec 2010Ppl on forums said that there are few specifications of this model in Europe - "Orange&qu... moreIt is true that there are different versions of this phone.
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? ;)
