Stylish design and a 13MP camera

The rear 13-megapixel camera features autofocus and a LED flash. In the menu you will find lots of mode including Pro mode which gives you manual controls over exposure, light balance and others. Face detection, HDR and panorama are also present. You can capture Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) video with 30 frames per second. The front-facing camera is also good. It has a 8-megapixel sensor and a nifty little feature that can be quite helpful – a flash.

5-inch IPS HD display and quad-core MediaTek processor

ZTE claims that the IPS matrix provides high brightness with vivid colors and good viewing angles and should allow to use the device in direct sunlight.

The MediaTek MT6735P SoC takes care for the smartphones performance. Its four cores are clocked at 1.0GHz. It features 1GB of RAM and Mali-T720MP2 GPU. The internal storage is limited – only 8GB but there is a slot for microSD cards up to 256GB. The microSD card slot uses the second sim slot.

Fingerprint sensor, Android 6.0 and gestures recognition

The sensor can recognize your fingerprint in just 0.3 seconds and features a 360-degree range. The sensor doesn’t only work unlocking the screen – it’s multifunctional. You can use it to open apps, take pictures, turn on the flashlight, switch the song that is playing and many others.

Blade V7 Lite runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with ZTEs proprietary user interface which adds features like gesture recognition. It recognizes more than 20 gestures that make using the device faster and easier.
