I bought this phone like a year ago (january 2013), and just want to clarify that the phone HAS NO FRONT CAMERA, at least the hardware version that is sold in Chile.
And, for advanced user this is not a good smartphone, with a few apps the phones starts to crash. I think it's a matter of bad design, because the phone has 4GB of internal storage for, like installing apps, but it does not have the processor or the RAM to support that ammount of apps.
Mahmoud Wafik, 08 Sep 2012this device willn't support Android 4.0 , android for cannot run on 800MHZ Processor and 256 M... moreIt's 1 GHz Snapdragon. While the platfom is more than a year old, its capable of running a lot more than you can expect for 175 USD smartphone that you can buy in any store nearby.
It's built pretty nice, feels solid. It surely does not feel chinese cheap bottle plastic phone. I personally have Motorola Atrix and in a few months display became very lousy (Double-sided duct tape? Seriously, Motorola?) before i glued that bastard firmly - V880E is solid. Back panel has a good grip. Display is okay (no miracles).
Why it shouldn't run ICS? ICS performance is only increased compared to previous versions. There is leaked official test 4.0.4 ROM for it and I can personally confirm it runs great - lot better than stock which is ENRAGINGLY laggy (though there are some unexpectedly good soulutions in ZTE launcher).
I bought this phone for my mother when she asked for cheap nice phone for calling Skype/checking e-mails/comfort browsing on not very heavy sites. It does all this things smoothly - and more.
am so into zte smartphones i lost my zte blade and wanna try this one but its not available in kenya.
