Every day we get excited about flagship cars for a few thousand zlotys, labo for half cheaper, but still great top models from China. Let's not forget, however, that a large group of users does not need such efficient devices, which with their camera will replace an SLR camera. For them, ZTE Blade A7 was created - a cheap and well-equipped model for less than 100 dollars.
As far as access to smartphones is concerned, I sometimes regret that I do not live in the Middle Kingdom. Nice models come on sale much earlier and the prices are also much more affordable (yes, I remember the living conditions and then I no longer regret it). I don't know if ZTE Blade A7 will go to Poland, but if not, we have something to regret.
Look at the picture above. At first glance, you wouldn't say it's so cheap. Frames around the screen are thinner than in many models for about 1000 PLN, I also like the red accent on the button to lock the smartphone. There is even a gradient color transition on the back panel. There is also no fingerprint reader, but it is precisely because the manufacturer has completely resigned from it.
Of course, a closer look at the speaker on the rear panel (made of plastic), "only" a single camera, or a slightly thicker upper frame. Overall, however, it's a great-looking smartphone. According to the manufacturer, the screen-to-body ratio is 89 percent, but I won't believe it - take a look at the width of the chin in the picture below.
MediaTek Helio P60 is not a processor that is associated with game smartphones, but we are talking about a smartphone that costs a penny. This SoC was intended for stronger average players rather than for the budgetist. Depending on the version, it is accompanied by 2 or 3 GB of RAM.
Naturally, such a smartphone will not take great pictures and you can see it even on paper. 16-megapixel main camera with f/2.0 light and 5-megapixel module for selfie with f/2.4 light will not knock anyone down with the quality of photography.
For such an amount, this equipment surprises with its completeness. There was also DualSIM with LTE, OTG and face recognition. There is even a USB-C, which is sometimes lacking in even three times more expensive devices. The manufacturer has not forgotten about a good headphone connector. The battery has 3200 mAh and with a 6-inch HD+ screen it doesn't make ZTE Blade A7 a marathoner, but it should last for the whole day.
While reading this text, you've come across some mentions about the price several times. Time to reveal them: for the 2/32 GB variant the interested parties will have to pay 599 yuan (340 PLN), for an additional gigabyte of RAM and twice as much data space you have to put up 100 yuan more, i.e. about 400 PLN. Show me a better smartphone for such money.
