ZTE is a popular Chinese brand that has been manufacturing several budget friendly smartphones with competitive specifications. Their latest model for 2013 is called the ZTE Blade C or otherwise known as the V807, V889S, and T807. It is currently available in China for 699 CNY and will soon hit the European market with an estimated price tag of around $110 or €85 based on the conversion of its selling price in China.

One thing that makes this device worth checking out is that it already runs the latest version of Android which is the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It’s also has a rock bottom price that makes it difficult for other manufacturers to compete with. You’ll have a hard time finding a Samsung or HTC device that can compete with the Blade C in terms of price point and specifications.
At this price point it is expected that you will be getting a relatively underwhelming device. It’s not a flagship model so don’t expect too much from it. It is however ideal for people on a tight budget looking for a quality smartphone.
The use of a dual core processor and 512 MB of RAM will allow you to use the phone smoothly with minimal or no lag at all.
It is clear that ZTE is pushing to capture a larger share of the low end smartphone market with this model. We won’t be surprise if this year they will release several low end models.
The company has just recently entered the top 5 spot in global smartphone rankings according to the latest International Data Corporation report. The five companies that made the list according to rank are Samsung, Apple, Huawei, Sony and ZTE.
