While the ZTE Blade Max View has a great display and capable camera, the sluggish Snapdragon 435 makes it a poor choice in a very competitive budget phone market.

Android Guys

The phone ticks a couple of boxes that are often important to buyers: big screen and long-lasting battery. These are primary reasons to consider a handset for a lot of people and, to that end, the Blade Max View will not disappoint. On the other hand, a lot is made today about picture quality on pho...

Phone Scoop

The Blade Max View has a really good screen, an amazing battery, and good-enough call quality. I wish the hardware were a bit spiffier, and that data speeds were more consistently quick.

The Blade Max View does have the benefit of being quite cheap upon launch. But its rivals have fallen in price as well, and all things considered, we still find the Moto G6 and the Nokia 6.1 to offer more well-rounded experiences, with considerably more up-to-date software and a level of quality that is likely to last you a few years longer, too. That leaves ZTE's comeback feeling like a somewhat compelling alternative, though well short of a leader in its class.

The phone ticks a couple of boxes that are often important to buyers: big screen and long-lasting battery. These are primary reasons to consider a handset for a lot of people and, to that end, the Blade Max View will not disappoint. On the other hand, a lot is made today about picture quality on phones. If you’re primarily shopping because you want a nice camera in your pocket, you’ll need to look elsewhere.

The Blade Max View has a really good screen, an amazing battery, and good-enough call quality. I wish the hardware were a bit spiffier, and that data speeds were more consistently quick. I have no complaints about ZTE's rendition of Android 7, but the Android 8 update (which is more secure and offers better features) needs to arrive post-haste. The camera software is decent, but the camera itself falls short.
