On the market for a capable though cheap smartphone? If so, then AT&T Prepaid may have something for you. Earlier today the carrier expanded its affordable lineup by the ZTE Blade Spark. Being a product targeting at extremely budget-conscious users, the phone offers a massive screen panel, decent optics represented by a 13MP camera and Android Nougat experience.
AT&T Prepaid has just added a brand new cheap phone to its portfolio that could be the best phone priced under $100.
The mobile market is full of cool phones you can buy for cheap. For us, users, it means that independently on our financial status we can still take advantage of full smartphone functionality. Handsets like for instance Moto G5 Plus prove that we don’t have to spend 500 or 600 bucks to own a powerful phone. Released today by AT&T Prepaid, the ZTE Blade Spark seems to be a great entry in the budget phone niche.
The new Blade Spark is already available in AT&T’s online store, where you can buy it for just $99.99, naturally with a qualified service plan. For less than $100 you may benefit from a 5.5-inch display sporting 1280x720p resolution covered with durable Gorilla Glass 3 and a combination of 13MP primary camera and a 5MP front snapper with dedicated selfie button. In addition, below the rear camera you will find a fingerprint scanner for extra data security – a feature, that frankly speaking, is still a rarity in this price sector.
Another pretty uncommon feature as for such a low pricing is the fact that the ZTE Blade Spark works on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of box. Smooth performance of the OS is delivered by a quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor clocked at 1.4GHz and coupled with 2GB RAM. Other than that the whole thing is kept alive by a pretty generous 3,240 mAh battery you can charge over USB Type-C.
Sadly, it looks like the ZTE Blade Spark will be available only to AT&T Prepaid (former GoPhone) customers. Perhaps the phone’s specs are far from the flagship ones, but it’s still a surprisingly decent option for all those customers who don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a new phone.
