WOW just WOW / The biggest bang i have seen for my buck.
I have not yet seen a phone with soo many features at this price.
Phone feel it bit cheap and 'plasticky' but looks great and u can over come the feel when u start using it, as u will be so involved in using it u wont know what it feels like :P
but of course there is a down side to all these features which is battery life. It is decent but it could be better, having said that I do use the phone almost 5 to 6 hours continuously on skype or web browsing. But keep an eye on killing apps u r not using using the app killer on androids and also turing off Sync, GPS, Wifi, Bluetooth, and not having it on full bright indoors, etc.
Also one down side was that you can not download skype using the official skype website. you must use 3 (if in UK). And because of this you can not use skype on Wifi only on the 3g network u can. (i think this is because 3 only want u to use them for skype when on their phones)
But the phone is excellent, i don't think u can get a better phone then this unless u spend a little bit more and get the HTC WildFire.
Brilliant, amazing, love it!!!!So far so good!!I hope it stays that way!!!The handset has not been on the market long enough to tell if this will last!!I recieved my ZTE Racer today and i'm very impressed. What a bargain!!!

This phone has been reduced in price to only £79 at Very UK. This makes the phone an absolute bargain! 3G/HSDPA, Wifi, GPS, Android 2.1 for only £79!
Nice phone only problem is the battery live
the WiFi works perfekt also 3g
How come there is nothing on GSMARENA about the ZTE Blade aka Orange San Francisco? This is a fantastic budget Android handset for £99 from Orange...
When new versions of Android are released, how do you know if the mobile is compatible and how do you upgrade it?

Anonymous, 27 Jul 2010I'd like to hear about battery life from someone who actually uses this phone, and not just fr... moreI have owned mine for a while now and can say if you turn on GPS / Bluetooth & Run lots of Apps that connect to the web to update & Have the display Bright the battery will be used up in under 4 Hours.
However when you have owned the phone for a while and start using it normally eg Set Display to mid Brightness / Set it to standby fast eg 30 secs / Turn off wifi / GPS or Blue tooth when they are not needed & keep an eye on how many apps are running in the background you should get 16-20 hours normal hours usage
My iPhone 3Gs can use its battery nearly as quick as the ZTE racer however look at the price diffrence
For a low cost Android i give it a deserved 4.5 / 5
the only fault is the screen is resistive so you need to tap a little harder than on the iphone 3GS
Hi, to somebody owned this phone, what is the video resolution and frame rate plz, thanks & regards.
Where can I buy accessories, batteries and chargers for this phone?
I'm more and more in love with this phone...

J, 30 Jul 2010CNET UK have done a review of this phone: http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/mobile-phones/zte-racer-re... moreBought it last Friday... Luv this phone, really responsive and fast... Only problem is battery life... First day after a 12 hour recharge the battery lasted for 8 hours... Of course I spent those 8 hours playing with the wi-fi, bluetooth, NDrive Gps, playing games...
