As cheap as it may be... not worth it.
Got it second hand from my mother, who only uses her phones for Facebook, texting, and maybe some puzzle game.
It's okay. You can't turn off the camera/screenshot sound. I see why you'd do this, but it was really awkward when I was taking a screenshot of a funny picture and my friends thought I was taking photos. Not cool.
The camera quality is terrible, but you should expect that if you're getting a budget phone.
The memory... that's up to you. It was enough for me at that time, but nowadays I'm using ~10GB of just apps in my current phone.
I don't remember the battery being that bad, actually.
However, my main issue was... Within months (almost a year), it just stopped working. It bricked itself.
At first it just gave me a lot of errors for apps that I wasn't even using. Then it stopped receiving and making calls. Then it stopped detecting the SIM card, and a few days later, it didn't turn on. No access to BIOS menu, no nothing. Only the Android logo over and over and over again. To this day, it's still on my drawer, gathering dust.
Luckily my brother could afford to lend me some money so I could get a different phone.
If you look it up, this has happened a lot of times, in different countries.
Planned obsolescence much?
TLDR: Don't risk it.

Usman Ayaz, 12 Jun 2016My ZTE blade l2 was a problem he was not turning on please help me please help meHave same problem with zte switch off but doesn't want me to go back on
Not a very good phone at all. I had it for almost two years and it finally kicked the bucket (It has that going for it). It finally passed away when I held the capture button. (Holding the Capture button makes the phone take multiple photos at once) The phone corrupted itself and when I tried to reset it using the Power Button, it turned off and now will not turn back on at all.
In terms of my experience when I did have it, it was an unsatisfactory experience to say the least. 4GB of Internal Memory is something that you don't want in a smartphone. I could only download one game because all of the inbuilt applications such as Google, Google Play Store and so on, were taking up 75% of the memory. The camera was good when I bought it, but of course, it hasn't really aged very well at all.
The phone was able to do the things it was made to do, make calls, sends texts. In terms of it's abilities as a smartphone it was able to connect to the internet, take photos and videos as well as being able to play games.
If I was to give it a score, I would give it a solid 7/10 as a Phone and a solid 4/10 as a Smartphone. 5/10 Overall.

My ZTE blade l2 was a problem he was not turning on please help me please help me
I bought the Blade L2 in April 2015 and purposely avoid reviews until I have used it comprehensively.
I was impressed by the specification for the price as this was before Chinese manufactures distributed their handsets in Europe (some of which are impressive by the way).
So - the ZTE.....urgh.
- It feels cheap which is to be expected
- The touchscreen is terrible. There is an option to reconfigure but it doesn't help at all. Writing a text is frustrating which wrong letters selected apparantely at random.
- The 4GB memory should be enough for me but for some bizarre reason, the ZTE has somehow lost 2GB and I'm left with just under 2GB internal storage which is barely enough to run Android. To clarify, I haven't used the memory...it's just disappeared. This means that I can't even update Chrome because of space limitations.
- Buttons are fine and the camera is what you'd expect for a handset of this price.
- Speaker is also ok. No complaints
- Removing the back cover is a delicate operation and it can easily crack if you're heavy handed with it.
- Battery life will drain within a day even with occasional texting and the odd social media usage. Any more than that will reduce the battery even more.
Hope this helps. As a backup handset that's used just for calls, it should be ok although I would not recommend it for anything beyond that.
