US Cellular's ZTE Blade Max 3 brings a large battery and dual cameras for just $200
The ZTE Blade Max 3 has made its way over to US Cellular. It is aimed at the budget phone market.
It isn’t very often you see a phone with a 4,000 mAh battery. Most phones these days are peaking at around 3,500 mAh, but not the Blade Max 3. The phone will need the extra power with a 6-inch Full HD display. If you do need to recharge, Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 with USB-C is there to back you up. Other specs include the mid-tier Snapdragon 625 paired with 2GB of RAM.
You get a dual 13MP camera on the back of the Blade Max 3: One camera is full RGB, while the other is monochromatic. Speaking of the back, the fingerprint sensor also lies here. This is a welcome feature for a budget phone.
Realistically, this phone is all you’ll ever need if you value good battery life over all other features. The Blade Max 3 will have enough power to get you through all of your everyday tasks, and you should be able to last longer on a single charge than most flagship phones.
The biggest downside is that Android 6.0 Marshmallow is present instead of Nougat. But, for a price of $199.99 (after $100 online discount), you might be able to forgive not having the latest software.
