ZTE, the company behind devices like the Axon 10 Pro and the Blade Max View, just released three new affordable Blade series handsets. The ZTE Blade 10 and ZTE Blade 10 Prime come in at only $179, while the ZTE Blade A7 Prime comes with an even lower $99 price tag.
The Blade 10 and Blade 10 Prime are essentially the same device, just available on different networks. The ZTE Blade 10 Prime is exclusive to Verizon’s Visible prepaid carrier, while customers can purchase the Blade 10 unlocked from ZTE’s website.
Both the Blade 10 and Blade 10 Prime sport an all-black chassis, a 6.3-inch FHD panel, a MediaTek P60 SoC, 3GB of RAM, and 64GB of onboard storage. They feature a 16MP and 5MP dual-lens rear camera setup, a 16MP front-facing camera, and a 3,200mAh battery.
Like the Blade 10 Prime, ZTE’s A7 Prime is only available through Visible. It features a smaller 6.09-inch HD display and only 32GB of onboard storage, but it keeps the same 3,200mAh battery and 3GB of RAM as the more expensive Blade 10 devices. It also comes with a similarly distinctive coat of paint as the older ZTE Visible R2 but with an added splash of color on the power button.
All three smartphones are good options if you are looking for something cheap that gets the job done. If you are interested, you can pick up any of these devices for yourself at the links below.
