ZTE Blade Comes Back with a Large Screen
The ZTE Blade family welcomes a new member: Blade III. Blade fans have been waiting in anticipation and wondering: How much has this “old friend” really changed? Is it still as user-friendly as it used to be?
Blade III has a 4-inch, 800 × 480 resolution screen. It is comfortable to grip and has great display effects. The bottom features frosted material. The slightly tilted profile brings vitality to the phone. The Blade family is renowned for its thinness, and Blade III is no exception. The 10 mm ultrathin body adds a high-tech flavor to the phone. The silver metal frame surrounding the body is slightly raised, making the phone more delicate and in line with the concept of a blade. The frosted texture on the back is scratch-resistant and doesn’t show up fingerprints.
Nowadays, handsets are fashion items, and a high-performance handset can enhance a user’s lifestyle. Blade III runs on the Android 4.0 and has a slew of features, including face unlock and voice search, and it has powerful software compatibility. When playing Fruit Ninja, there is no distortion of the blades or fruit, even when many fruits are falling. You can relax and enjoy the game as much as you like because the phone has a 1 GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor and a large screen. Blade III has a 5-megapixel camera that supports touch focus and delivers splendid picture quality. You can share photos with your friends through Google+, short messages, and email. Blade III is also armed with a 1650 mAh high-capacity battery to have long run time.
User Friendly Applications
Blade III has a refined UI and a long-press unlock button replaces the native unlock interface in Android 4.0. For users who want shortcuts on the lock screen, a special alternative is available on Blade III. With a slight slide across the unlock button, a six-color flower blooms. The six petals provide shortcuts to apps, and you can add or remove applications to or from each petal. This is more user-friendly. In addition, the backup and recovery software built in Blade III are very functional. You can backup contact, message and desktop data into the SD card and set passwords for privacy. If you click data recovery, data can be recovered. You don’t need to worry about data loss. Furthermore, Blade III integrates a lot of useful Google applications, such as Google Play, Google+ and Google Latitude, so users do not have to download them.
