The ZTE Blade may be a little older than some other budget Android phones but it still stands up against modern alternatives.
Its 3.5 inch screen with an 800x480 resolution gives it more visual clarity and space to breath than most cheap mobiles. It also implements Android just as Google intended it without going too overboard with custom interfaces and other unnecessary extras.
The fact that the touchscreen is capacitive also works in its favour, allowing for feather-light interactivity that cannot be achieved on some cut price handsets with resistive touch technology.
Localized versions of the phone include the Orange San Francisco and T-Mobile Blade.
