sobin, 08 Mar 2013very bad slow webI have been using this device myself and had the same issue with the web speed on the device. I contacted my service provider orange and found there part of the network was fine as the same SIM was working great on the other handset. So I wanted to get this issue fixed and contacted ZTE for assistance and they had asked me to perform a master reset and a software upgrade. The tool is available on their website. Also to be noted i am using San Francisco from Orange from UK.

But however you can try transferring the applications to the SD card and that you do not run out of space on the phone memory. For the issue on ringtone if you feel it’s less than the normal volume tone of the mobile try performing a software upgrade. The software tool is on the zte website. If still the issue is not resolved you can contact the ZTE hotline for assistance as I once had issue with my ZTE handset and found good assistance from the ZTE end to get my issue resolved.
I bought this phone about 3 weeks ago.
The battery hardly lasts 2 hours when idle.
The internal memory is very small so some big apps like facebook, twitter, google playstore, gmail and your memory is gone (But that's my mistake. I didn't pay attention to it before buying).
The ring tone doesn't necessarily work all the time.
In short a BIG 'NO' to ZTE BLADE.
this is a great low end android phone.Stop with the whining people atleast its better than the other cheaper one....poor camera though but nice processor speed
Atul Thakur, 29 Dec 2012with full honesty, i want to say everyone that plz.. plz.. plz.. do-not take this mobile. when... moreTrue, with me, not even a month it worked properly, the phone could not pick up the network at times. The ring tone would work and stop at times. The mute is off but cannot hear the ring tone. Really frustrating. So i replaced with a Nokia.
I tested this phone, i was suer it was pure garbage, and in manmy ways it is, but it has some really strong sides also!
1. Build quality is great, feels so solid.
2. Display is nice and bright with very high pixel density, great viweing angles, like IPS, expected more clarity and contrast is far from great but for a china display its very good.
3. Battery! 5 and half day on one charge and nearly half battery remaining, this is the strength of the ARM11 processors.
1. Small buttons on the front.
2. Cam is typical china.
3. Almost no internal storage.
Would love to have this as a backup phone, coz of the battery, but i need LED flash for my backups.

Kenn, 04 Jan 2013I got a blade 3 months ago but my text input gone bad..it wont accept characters at the screen... moreBuy from ebay the digitizer for blade and replace the touch screen by yourself can solve the problem
nice smartphone but memory is too small needs sd card of 16 or 32gb for back up.
after 2 years i've got to say this phone has served its purpose time to move on to the sony xperia sl, z or upcoming windows 8 phones
what can I say it works well still strong despite the power button caving in I think I should sell it or keep it as a secondary phone too bad there isn't a fully complete jellybean with hd video playback and those missing drivers oh well cyanogen mod 7.2 it is
Maddy, 25 Jan 2013How can i upgrade this phone to ICS ?use cyanomoad 9.1 then you can easly update ur zte blade to ics
