What the Critics Are Saying...


Know Your Mobile

The Blade L2 offers an impressive spec sheet for under £100, but there are just too many negatives to justify a purchase, even if your budget is very modest

- Damien McFerran, Know Your Mobile
Beta News

All in all, the ZTE Blade L2 is a decent phone. It’s a good size, and while some intensive games lag a bit it’s fast enough for general day-to-day use. The 4GB storage is nowhere near enough, but you can expand it by up to 32GB via microSD, which is definitely recommended.

- Wayne Williams, Beta News
Tech Advisor

This is a very cheap smartphone, so bear in mind that everything that goes up must also come down.
