ZTE has released its V956 Blade E in the Philippines. The Blade E is a 4.5-inch Android phone powered by a 1.2 GHz quad core Qualcomm S4 Play processor. The specifications are almost identical to Cherry Mobile Flame 2.0, unfortunately the similarity includes bundling a rather anemic 1600 mAh battery.
- Android 4.1
- 4.5-inch FWVGA (480 x 854) display
- Dual sim support
- 4 GB internal storage expandable via a MicroSD card slot
- 512 MB RAM
- 1.2 GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Processor
- Adreno 203 graphics
- 5 MP autofocus primary camera with LED Flash
- 0.3 MP front camera
- 1600 mAh battery
The differences. The Blade E is actually a lower spec, lower priced model when compared to the Flame 2.0. The Blade E is priced at Php6,300, which is lower than the Php6,999 asking price for the Flame 2.0. On the other hand the Blade E has a lower resolution FWVGA display (480 x 854) as against the qHD (540 x 960) display of the Flame 2.0. The deal breaker is the equipped RAM. The Blade E comes with 512 MB, half the 1 GB you find in the Flame 2.0.
As stylish as ZTE V956 Blade E looks, with its stylish on screen keys, the Cherry Mobile Flame 2.0 is your best bet for a budget priced power.
