It’s not a secret that for some time on ZTE is putting all its efforts to gain a reputable position on the US mobile market. However, it’s the first time this China-based company is working with Verizon, which is the biggest service provider nationwide. The ZTE’s first Verizon-dedicated device – the ZTE Blade Vantage – is now available online and in carrier’s local stores. The best thing about this handset is that it offers LTE fast speeds for just $49.99.
Verizon has just added a new, stunningly cheap Android phone to its portfolio. The ZTE Blade Vantage can be yours for $50 without contract.
Design with budget-conscious customers in mind, the ZTE Blade Vantage is surely an excellent ultra-budget option than can be yours for the half of a Benjamin. Naturally, at this price point we can’t expect the device to offer whooping specs, but truth to be told it’s actually a pretty good alternative for all those of us searching the market for a dependable smartphone.
For just $49.99, you will get a phone driven by the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 210 quad-core processor coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB of built-it storage, which when considered not enough can be easily expanded using microSD cards. The Adreno 304 GPU is in charge of graphics, meanwhile a 5-inch 420x854p display is delivering pretty decent viewing experience.
Even the optics on the handset are better than you would except from such an extremely affordable phone. The primary camera is an 8MP sensor with Autofocus and HDR mode, while a 2MP snapper on the front takes care of selfies. Although the Blade Vantage’s package of connectivity options lacks NFC, the phone supports speedy LTE, which still isn’t a common feature for devices from this price point. Another worth mentioning thing is that it runs Android 7.1 Nougat out of box. Perhaps feeding the phone a 2,500 mAh battery doesn’t seem particularly impressive. However, considering that the display is a 420x854p panel, it should be powerful enough to provide its users with a whole day of work on a single charging.
With the budget phone market developing incredibly fast, gone are the days when we couldn’t get a capable phone for cheap. Devices like the Blade Vantage are created to prove that you not only can buy a phone for $50, but you can get one that’s powerful enough to deal with most day-to-day tasks, including surfing the net, social media, etc. Sure, it won’t be able to cope with AR or multitasking, but the question is whether you really need all those feature in everyday usage?
If you’re looking for a cool and ultra-cheap prepaid phone, simply hit Verizon’s online store and order the ZTE Blade Vantage with no activation fee.
