New devices are being launched almost every week in Nepali smartphone market too. With the number of Smartphone users continuously increasing, the market has seen many new brands and models in the recent years. This has brought a fierce competition in the market. As a similar trend, ZTE Blade V7 was launched in Nepal by Evolution Enterprises, the official distributor of ZTE mobile phones. ZTE Blade v7 Lite is a liter version of ZTE Blade V7. Featuring full metallic compact body with a 5-inch display with PPI of 294 with the front covered by a Corning Gorilla Glass. The ZTE Blade V7 Lite has priced Rs. 18,990 currently and as a Dashain Offer, the company is providing 10,000 Romoss power bank and Rs.700 cashback.
The metallic body is quite good at this price range and the fingerprint sensor works pretty well. As the company claims, the device will be unlocked within 0.3 seconds. The device seems similar too some Huawei devices.
Build Design and Display
The metallic body makes this device look and feel premium. With unibody metallic design, the phone looks well and nice. The screen, however, catches fingerprints so a tempered glass is recommended. The ZTE Blade V7 Lite features 5-inch IPS LCD 720x1920 pixel HD display with 294ppi. The front part is also covered by Corning Gorilla Glass. Overall, except the black frame that surrounds the screen, display and build are better.
The ZTE Blade V7 Lite is powered by MediaTek MT6735P Quad-Core processor and is paired with Mali-T720MP2 GPU. The device consists of 2GB of RAM and runs Android Marshmallow 6.0 with MIFavor UI. App drawer sometimes lags but this problem can be solved by using some launchers. Some popular launchers are Nova Launcher, Arrow Launcher, Google Now and the list goes on.
Being a mid-range phone, the camera is pretty good. Blade V7 features 13 megapixels back camera with 8 megapixel selfie shooter and a front flash LED too. The picture quality is a bit down when it comes in a low-light condition but you wouldn't expect a mid-range phone to be perfect in everything.
The ZTE Blade V7 Lite is packed with 2500 mAh battery and will last long due to its 720p screen. The device supports 4G and can run two SIM at the same time.
