Im deciding between this or the ZTE Blade Zmax. I love the look of the blade Zmax and I like that the fingerprint sensor is on the back. But having two 13MP sensors and an extra GB of ram are nice pluses. Also wish the v8 pro was running Android N instead

What happened to the review??
ZE RO (1 year ago)
is the battery removable ?
Gabe Ulrickson (1 year ago)
well, hopefully they'll add Nougat because ZTE rep told one YouTube channel that they were working on it for the ZMAX PRO so this should get it as they are in the same price range

Is ZTE Blade V8 Pro gonna be sold in Canada? This phone has everything I want :)

I have been trying to figure out, does this phone have a notification light or not? Stupid I know but it is important to me.
DoubleAIV (1 year ago)
this phone is trash rap.
Buckeye Imaging (1 year ago)
Should I get this or the Honor 6x? Leaning towards the 6x for better build quality etc. However, it doesn't have usb-c or NFC, I don't use either of these though. But which one actually "performs" better
Scitch2781 (1 year ago)
cheap crap
FubarMike (1 year ago)
what version of android is it running? I hope at least 7.0 for this day and age and the specs of that phone
The guy who reviewed this was too nice on this phone its garbage

Saul 's GAMING Life considering it hasn't been released yet, how would you know for certain? Sorry it's not a OnePlus or Samsung

For $229, show me a list of phones in that price range that are better. smh
Looks amazing, to many new choices

stop this shit with double cameras..

The "mid-range" game is stepped up. It's now way above mid-range. Good job.

*I hope they'll upgrade the Axon 7*
alexdiezg (1 year ago)
+Alex Bakker I'm sure ZTE will surprise us somehow. ;)
Alex (1 year ago)
alexdiezg Yes and that's why they have to add some good features to make use of the big screen if they choose to go for that
alexdiezg (1 year ago)
+Alex Bakker true that. I just have big hands and I like to see stuff on big screens. Stock Android didn't provide much "big screen features" other than "multi window mode" and making the keyboard smaller.
Alex (1 year ago)
alexdiezg 6" is absolutely perfect for gaming and watching YouTube, Netflix etc. but I think it's just a little too big for everyday use UNLESS they get the software 100% right to make use of the big screen
alexdiezg (1 year ago)
+Alex Bakker I believe it does if they make the body big enough for the screen and speakers but small enough for the hand. On my Nexus 6 there's still plenty of bezels left that could've been screen instead. If you know the Mi Mix then I can tell you the dimension​s are surprisingly very very similar. Imagine the 6.4 inches go down to 6 inches. Then you might see that there will be room for the speakers. I won't mind that, but I won't mind a smaller phone either. It's just what I prefer.

this gets the 625 but the Axon 7 Mini doesn't? -_-
Ray (1 year ago)
reminds me of what HTC One M8 attempted to do in 2014. Seems pretty nice!
So now this is the era of Dual rear cameras?...Just for Isheeps out there. It all started with LG and not apple. Aplle is just a copycat now.
Jade[d] (1 year ago)
Honor does it better : )
Michael Pittenger (1 year ago)
this or axon 7 mini for $200?
Max Johnson (1 year ago)
The Axon 7 mini runs Snapdragon 617 which is very slow, not worth it even for $200. You want the Snapdragon 625 or better. And that dual camera is probably going to be a lot better.
Graham Jefferson (1 year ago)
Did ZTE and Huawei get together to develop the camera? The camera on the Honor 6x is strikingly similar in design and functionality even though the sensors are different. Excited about that price though, I hope some different back covers are going to be available.

The Blade V8 Pro looks nice but I'll wait for the Axon 8.
ademite (1 year ago)
The camera is shit which is literally the biggest reason why i wont get it... i mean the v8 pro has a better camera and its cheaper. So i guess its either the best audio or a better camera and cheaper price. Also any news on daydream ready for axon 7?
Shellyman Studios (1 year ago)
+ademite Go for the axon 7 it's worth it bro.
ademite (1 year ago)
I haven't seen any news on specs or design do you know of any info? I'm so close to jumping the gun and buying the axon 7 because my htc m8 can no longer hold a battery charge.
Tekky Quickbits (1 year ago)
I'd still pick the Honor 6X over this, why? *because Huawei has more recognition which will result in more custom ROMS and devs will probably port LineageOS to it*
Tekky Quickbits (1 year ago)
+Max Johnson So, where's your Honor 8 to begin with? I'm talking about budget phones, you dumbfuck

I am watching on the zmax 2. it finally has marshmallow!!!
CDTucker336 (1 year ago)
Fat Max I haven't noticed any on mine.
Fat Max (1 year ago)
I have it too. Its awesome with marshmallow! One thing though, does your drop down menu sometimes glitch?
CDTucker336 (1 year ago)
+ivan gonzalez it is great for what I need it for!!! Not the best of everything but for 60 dollars it's hard to beat. I play GTA vice city on it too.
ivan gonzalez (1 year ago)
CDTucker336 how Is the performances
What we need is the axon 8 to take over where HTC left off, for whatever weird reason.

ZTE knocks it out of the park again. I think they might be my favorite Chinese manufacturer... I like your bracelets Josh too :D

Jose Gonzalez (1 year ago)
Glad I'm waiting until post CES for a new phone. Missed the Honor 8 at $299 but now I don't feel like I'm missing anything (performance on the 625 still passes my 801 in my HTC Desire EYE I'm currently using). May only be swayed if the Honor 8 or Alcatel Idol 4S get a surprise price cut before the end of January/early February
Kpop Fan (1 year ago)
black Friday was $265 for 32gb and like $314(?) for 64gb it was a great buy
Ishraq Mirza (1 year ago)
+Jose Gonzalez just checked it. Holy shit priced increased back again.
Jose Gonzalez (1 year ago)
Mr. High Guy back to above $300 ($325-399 for 32 GB). Checked last night
Ishraq Mirza (1 year ago)
Jose Gonzalez One question are you around the U.S. Area? Amazon is selling the Honor 8 for 285-299 dollars.
Viyus Avery (1 year ago)
honor 6x has stiff competition, battery life COULD be good? we are talking about the 625 here 625 is battery life king
just me (1 year ago)
The honor 6x images a little washed out compared to the v8 pro.
Viyus Avery (1 year ago)
+Mustafa Mirza I think so too, have you seen that things auto focus technology the thing is seamless, and in the long run your more likely to see software updates vs this device that maybe stuck forever
Mustafa Mirza (1 year ago)
Honor 6x is better still note sure about that micro usb though
Max Johnson (1 year ago)
I would choose this phone over the 6X for a few reasons. NFC support and the software resemble stock Android more. Honor 6X is shipped with EMUI 4.1, which is just god awful.
Viyus Avery (1 year ago)
+Ali Adnan the phone has been released in China weeks ago I've watched many non mainstream reviewers I don't wait on the west for reviews
