It has been more than a year, since the last of the 9 series came out. Now here we are with the ZTE Blade 10 Prime, giving birth to a whole new generation. What can we expect out of them? Read on to find out more details.
But before we begin, let’s do a quick tribute to last year’s Blade V9 as you can see below:
- 5.7-inch Full HD S-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2160 pixels, 18:9 ratio or ~424 ppi density
- Front/back glass, aluminium frame
- Fingerprint sensor
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset, Octa-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 506 graphics and 2GB/3GB/4GB RAM
- Dual 16MP primary camera with f/1.8 aperture and 1.12 µm + 5MP with phase detection autofocus and dual-LED dual-tone flash
- 13MP secondary camera
- 16GB/32GB/64GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 256GB maximum
- Non-removable Li-Ion 3200 mAh battery
- Android Oreo 8.0
- Dual-sim and 4G LTE
- August 2018 release date
- 239 Euro or ~295 USD
ZTE Blade V9 was nothing revolutionary when it came out, with just a nice dose of everything that makes it excel in the mid-range category.
With that in mind, let’s now scrutinise the latest Blade 10 Prime which is long overdue:
- 6.3-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2280 pixels, 19:9 ratio or ~400 ppi density
- Fingerprint sensor
- Mediatek MT6771 Helio P60 (12 nm) chipset, Octa-core (4x2.0 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4x2.0 GHz Cortex-A53) processor, Mali-G72 MP3 graphics and 3GB RAM
- Dual primary camera: 16MP with f/1.8 aperture and PDAF + 5MP with f/2.2 aperture, depth sensor, LED flash, HDR and panorama
- 16MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture
- 64GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 1TB maximum
- Non-removable Li-Po 3200 mAh battery with Fast battery charging
- Android Pie 9.0
- November 2019 release date
- 179 USD price tag
A glance over the Blade 10 Prime, and we can see few enhancements, but is it enough? For starters, it comes blessed with a larger 6.3-inch Full HD+ IPS screen with more screen real estate.
Under the hood of the Blade 10 Prime, has been upgraded with the Helio P60 chipset being paired with a fast octa-core processor, good graphics but with just 3GB RAM of memory. This should put it in the mid-range category, although the 3GB RAM spoils it for them.
Another disappointment for the Blade 10 Prime, is the fact that it comes with just a 16MP+5MP dual primary camera combination; with most release coming with three or more cameras these days. At least the 16MP selfie camera slightly makes up for it.
Storage-wise, the 64GB internal storage found on the Blade 10 Prime is sufficiently enough. Should you need more space, pop in a microSD card, and you can take it up to 1TB of additional space.
Two other grouses about the Blade 10 Prime is on its slightly smallish 3200 mAh battery capacity, and the outdated Android Pie 9.0 operating system.
ZTE Blade 10 Prime is an inexpensive smartphone but doesn’t offer much in terms of value. You should be able to get other better device in this price range.
ZTE Blade 10 Prime had just been released for 179 USD price tag and is available in only Black colour.
