"Complete Android Experience 1.1", Android 2.3.4, downloaded using ROM Manager is ok, but I can not change the volume when using the FM-radio!
sam, 01 Dec 2011it does not support multitaskingIt is not true. As any Android phone this phone supports multitasking. Operation system is Linux with Java(modufied for mobiles) GUI if You would like to know.

Really good phone. A lot of Android for a very low price
As usual even "stable" releases of CyanogenMod have too many bugs, 7.1.0 for Blade can not even make normal phonecalls without the screen and the whole phone freezing and the only option is to pull the battery. I now use "Complete Android Experience 1.1", Android 2.3.4, downloaded using ROM Manager from the Market after rooting with z4root.
Opera Mobile and Dolphin browser Mini are the best browsers, and on Blade I use Skyfire to stream Flash movies...

I would never have bought this phone, but I now got it for free so I decided to "play" a little with it. It can not handle Adobe Flash, but Skyfire actually plays every movie perfectly so I can play movies... from en.justin.tv/directory/entertainment ..., and I can play Need for Speed Shift without lag but it can not handle more demanding games very well. The camera is bad. Because Blade is not expensive at all, it is a really good phone for the money!
I now have both Galaxy S2, probably the best phone in the world right now (N9 and 4S and Lumia does not even come close, and even Blade can actually be compared with the very expensive Lumia) and ZTE Blade, that probably is the "worst" Android but still beats any Symbian but not the camera, because Android is by far the best Mobile Operating-System!
peter, 25 Nov 2011What custom rom have you instaled?Could you tell it or that is a secret?The custom ROM I installed is Swedish Spring RLS5... you can get it from http://android.modaco.com/topic/329856-02may-roms-current-known-available-roms-for-the-zte-blade-gen1/
There are other ROMs for ZTE on that page so its a matter of choice.
I am surprised that there is no news at all for the Blade 2 that will be out this month...if not already selling O_o !!! Well ok Orange sells it but...I guess later we will see and the blade unlocked version selling.
the battery is actually very good as long as you disable updates like face book etc initially it was horrible but now simply superp.
Non, 26 Oct 2011This phone would be exceptional, for the price, were it not for a show-stopping design fault :... moreDo you know that is possible to format the flash card and to rezerve 1 gb so that the phone would think that its internal memory is now 1 gb?You just need to work a little and everything would be fine)
I have had this phone for 2 months.
The battery used to suck in the first few days but now I get about 4days of battery.
I have installed a custom ROM and also have a battery saver app....keeps the connections off once the screen is locked. Also another trick...I change my network from 3G to 2G just for normal sms and calls only. Love the phone and is worth every penny.
Nuru mAn, 10 Nov 2011The battery doesn't last longer. no use.I don't think its battery is so bad (it's like my Partner's iPhone 3 GS's, I usually charge it every night, but many times it is still like 60% in the evening), but I've noticed if I turn off the GPS (which I need mainly for Maps/Places) I can save a lot of battery life.
