ZTE Blade T2 Review & Pros And Cons

- Analysis by KJ David

No more than a low-caliber prepaid Android for first-time smartphone users (Check out other Tracfone-carried models here), the ZTE Blade T2 delivers a rather dull array of pros and cons. This includes an archaic 1.1GHz quad-core processor that's at least accompanied by 2GB of RAM -- some of its entry-level rivals settle for paltry 1GB-only RAM counts.

Also, the T2 is far from impressive when it comes to imaging, seeing that it offers no more than a standard (as far as 2018 entry-level smartphones go) 5-megapixel LED-flash camera and an even more disappointing 2-megapixel-only front-facing camera . Keep in mind that many comparable entry-level models tout 13-megapixel rear-facing cams and at least 5-megapixel selfie shooters.

Also among its disgruntling specs (ergo, cons) is an old-fashioned 5-inch 854 x 480 display that likely flounders in comparison to the HD-720p or FHD-1080p facades boasted by a few other models belonging to this Android category. Rubbing some salt to its wounds is a 2200mAh battery pack whose 12-hour talk time and 288-hour standby time (12 days) both fell below the corresponding average values around the time of this data-driven Phonerated review.

The Blade T2's array of pros and cons is not without a couple of redeeming points, though, one of which is the 256GB memory card support accompanying its 16GB internal storage -- most other low-end models support only up to 64GB or 128GB of external memory. Additionally, just like the models in our gallery of the newest 4G-enabled phones, the T2 offers 4G-LTE network connectivity , placing itself a full level above its 3G-only contemporaries.

With a classic Black finish, an M4/T3 hearing aid rating, and the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system rounding out its features, ZTE's Blade T2 winds up as a viable choice for practically-minded shoppers eying an essentials-only smartphone.
