By the way, it is possible to gain access to root on this phone now by using kingroot. Just download the latest version from their website and it will root the phone. Enjoy!
I can also confirm I have GPS problems with this phone on any firmware. I cannot get a lock at all. It says it can see 24 sat's as soon as you turn the GPS on which is obviously not true. I have tried every fix out there and nothing works. It is a shame as the phone is great apart from this.
Data(3G/2G) is working in SIM 1.
No data support in SIM 2.
Hope future software update will solve this issue.
i am using latest B11 software. still unable to use sim 2 for data.
I was very interested on ZTE Blade - glad I've come across this site! I won't be buying the phone as it appears to have SATNAV problems.

Does anyone has problems with the phone speaker?
It's almost impossible to hear someone when making calls unless I activate the hands free option.
I have also very bad experience with the GPS, it takes 5 minutes to get a position, I have used in the car for navigation, and when I was moving, then it was working correctly, but when I stopped at a red light, the position has started to drift, and soon the phone sought it is in a different street :-(
I have R10 sw, and just did a phone reset, just to try to see if it helps, but it doesn't. I tried to restart in safe mode, but the symptom is the same.
TadejBr, 24 Apr 2015I would like to ask if someone has an GPS problems also? I am having terrible experience with ... moreThe GPS is not functioning. I have used it a few times in Denmark with google map for driving routes. It falls out of synch all the time. I have now been in Spain for four days. I have tried to use it twenty times but it doens't respond to anything. On the Europe Balcony in Nerja almost 40 miles from Malaga it actually thinks it is in Malaga... Oddly it seems that it follows all the turns when I'm driving - meening it knows which direction I'm driving, but it is not moving the position... Very strange. This is the first Android phone I've used that has this major tracking problem! Bad bad bad... ZTE please fix this issue. Thanks!!

Because update app doesn't work from phone, you need to manual update yourself.
I don't use much this phone, just went outside to verify, i got a "3D fix" in GPS test app within 20 or 30seconds on 7 satellites
I would like to ask if someone has an GPS problems also? I am having terrible experience with ZTE Blade's S6 GPS. However sometimes it locks but I have to wait quite a time, other time it just don't lock. I hope this is software related issue and gets fixed soon!
If this is a general hardware failure, I just want to get the RMA for the phone and want an functional one, because I do use a GPS quite often!
A new firmware is available, B11. I don't know the changes and i didn't notice anything new, probably "under the hood" changes.
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2015wow , this looks like the iPhone 6. Do you not have your own ideas? It's made for people who want/aren't against the same design but with different OS obviously.
