- Analysis by KJ David
One of two ZTE entries during the MWC 2019, the other model being the 5G-ready Axon 10 Pro 5G, the ZTE Blade V10 runs on some middle-class hardware and touts a premium-class (at least when it comes to raw pixel resolution) 32-megapixel selfie camera , possibly cutting itself a spot in Phonerated's list of the best selfie-driven smartphones on the market. Sadly, though, the V10's high-resolution front cam does not come with an accompanying LED light , which would have made it a bigger pro.
This Blade model's other cons include an octa-core 2.1GHz processor , if only because some of the leading octa-core models around the time of this specs-driven review use engines running at 2.5GHz or higher. Its CPU is accompanied by either 4GB or 3GB of RAM, depending on the variant.
Another slight drawback is the fact that it comes with no more than 64GB of internal memory (A 32GB version is also offered), despite a few tantamount models starting out with 128GB of on-board storage. Similarly, its 3200mAh-only battery capacity sounds lackluster, especially when compared to the at-least-4000mAh power caps offered by several of its ZTE cousins.
This 7.8mm-thin Blade model's other pros and cons include a respectable dual-lens rear-facing camera consisting of a 16-megapixel primary lens and a 5-megapixel subsidy lens that's dedicated to depth-of-field analysis and bokeh photography.
The Blade V10 touts a phablet-class 6.3-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080) display sitting on a wide 19:9 aspect ratio and a high screen-to-body ratio of 90.3 percent. The rest of its body is coated in either Green, Black, or a gradient finish that runs from Purple to Blue, with the Android 9.0 Pie operating system rounding out its pros and cons.
With those features in mind, this Blade model caters to semi-high-end Android shoppers eying a phone that puts a lot of its eggs in the selfie basket.
