Belived or not, the China-based ZTE company is currently the biggest no-contract phone seller in the States. No wonder as the company offers great value-for-money ratio. This along with top-quality support and band compliance makes ZTE stand out of the crowd of other Chinese phone makers. Today the company announced the Blade Force. The new smartphone comes to Boost Mobile, offering a package of decent specs, HPUE technology and low price.
Boost Mobile has just expanded its affordable phone portfolio by the ZTE Blade Force which is so far the cheapest smartphone to pack HPUE technology.
Long before its premiere the ZTE’s Axon M has been already considered one of the most interesting devices debuting at the end of 2017, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the company has neglected more classic designs. Earlier today, in partnership with Boost Mobile, the manufacturer launched the Blade Force. The latest member of the Blade series of phones provides several quite impressive features and an extremely affordable price of $129
One of the Blade’s Force’s biggest selling points is the fact that it has been equipped with Sprint’s High Performance User Equipment technology. Those unfamiliar with the term should know that HPUE is a specification allowing the mobile device to output a stronger radio signal in specific radio frequency bands and situations, enhancing coverage and outdoor signal performance. In practice, it means that HPUE enables Sprint (and its partners like Boost Mobile) to deliver increased coverage and faster speeds. Although the Blade Force isn’t the only Sprint-dedicated phone to support HPUE tech, it’s surely the cheapest one, as the technology is currently found in more high-end handsets.
Except for that, the Blade Force houses a 5.5-inch IPS HD display and a combination of an 8MP primary camera and 5MP front-facing selfie snapper. Powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 427 processor clocked at 1.4GHz and coupled with 2GB RAM, the phone should cope well with simple multitasking, delivering smooth Android 7.1.1 Nougat performance. But, since Android Oreo is already available, it’s a bit disappointing that ZTE decided to equip a freshly released handset with previous gen OS, don’t you think?
As for storage, the Blade Force comes with pretty basic 16GB of internal storage, which thankfully may be easily expanded by another 128GB using microSD cards. Meanwhile, a 3,000 mAh battery should be powerful enough to deliver a full day of usage on a single charging.
If the ZTE Blade Force drew your attention, you may buy it in Boost Mobile online and local stores. When it comes to pricing, when ZTE say affordable they do means affordable, and the phone may be yours for as little as $129.
