Design & display

Curved glass

ZTE Blade V7 lite’s display wraps right up to the edge of the phone, leaving virtually no bezel on either side. 

Superb detail

The high definition screen provides a great level of detail, meaning you’ll be able to show off all your photos and videos proudly. 


Plenty of special features

The 13MP main camera comes with loads of great effects to push your photography game to the next level. Smile Capture automatically snaps the shot when it sees everyone smiling, while Beautify gets rid of any imperfections. 

Great selfies even in the dark

The front-facing camera is 8MP and comes with its own flash. This means that even if you’re on a night out, you’ll still be able to get bright and colourful photos without having to ask someone else to take the photo. 

Under the hood

Long-lasting battery

A 2,500mAh battery cell will make sure you’ve got enough power to see you all the way through the day. But if you’re running low, the Doze Power Management System can be activated to stretch out the last of your power. 

Multi-functional fingerprint sensor

Most fingerprint sensors let you unlock a smartphone, but the V7 lite goes a step further. You can use different fingerprints to launch different apps, and you can slide over it skips songs, swipe through photos, or double tap to turn on your torch.

ZTE Blade V7 Lite is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from gets worse the longer you have it i got this around 1 year ago. at first i thought it was great worked fast barely lagged, one thing i will say however is it very strone mine has no cracks in the screen and i will say i have dropped it many times. only issue was camera quality. the phone does however have a small storage, although it say it 16gb it is actually just over 10gb which disappointed me. on the plus side the finger print scanner is great you can up to five different fingerprints and, when tested against a iphone 8 was quicker loading the home screen. ph and the home button lights up when pressed which is cool The small RAM means its gets very slow over time. now i would say it took me around 10 minutes this morning to send streaks as snapchat crashed 3 times in a row then when i finally got the picture and was pressing send it crashed again. so it took awhile. one thing that has always annoyed me is when you screenshot it makes a loud noise, which for some reason is also mad on snapchat. bit random. good product for a while but will get worse the longer you have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything about it. I've had this phone for two years now still going strong.....had bought mine from eBay brand new....loved it...straight out of the box, good for the internet, Listening to music stream to a speaker, and watching movies when using Google cast on showbox......and the camera is also good for taking photo when you know how to focus properly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful phone I've had two of these phones in the space of 6 months. The first one kept crashing until it stopped working. The second one bent in my pocket. Would not recommend.
