Design, size, controls ZTE Blade V7 Lite
The wording on the test were slightly smartphones: Highscreen Tasty, Meizu M3s mini and ZTE Blade V7 Lite. All of them are as if made from the same script: part of the back of the metal, the upper and lower insert are made of plastic, the sides “iron”, the front panel – solid glass. It seems that a fantasy developers over, either of these devices, “birds of a feather” (one plant).
However, in general, ZTE looks neat, perfectly in the hand, well assembled without play, without forcing the metal to the batteries correctly matched plastic colors (insert), the body relatively compact with a thickness of a little less than 8 mm, weight is also within a reasonable (132 grams ) for the 5-inch gadget.
Sales ZTE Blade V7 Lite is available in two colors: gray and gold.
The back cover is matte, polished rim, around the perimeter of the front panel passes the plastic bezel that serves as a shock absorber, if the device is accidentally beats lateral faces.
Oleophobic coating have gadget is, but it is not the most effective. However, the finger slides over the surface without any problems, the prints are removed easily.
On the front side on top are a flash for the camera selfie, missed event indicator and the battery, camera, sensor and earpiece. Speaker loud, average intelligibility.
Under the display – “Back” round “Home” and call the menu. Illumination is.
Bottom – microUSB and the main microphone is located on top of a lone headphone jack on the left – the volume rocker (metal), and the right – the power button and the joint slot two nano format simkarty or variant microSD + nanoSIM.
C are the back of the flash, lens, acting by a millimeter above the hull, all fingerprint sensor (average speed, can unlock the screen without the backlight).
At the bottom you can see two holes with spider veins on the left – the speaker, and the right – decoration.
Display ZTE Blade V7 Lite
This device ZTE Blade V7 Lite uses a screen diagonal is 5 inches. The physical size – 62h111 mm frame on top – 16 mm, bottom – 17 mm, right and left – about 4 mm, which is an excellent result for such a device. There is anti-reflective coating.
Display resolution ZTE Blade V7 Lite – HD, ie 720h1280 points, density – 293 pixels per inch. IPS OGS Matrix. For a diagonal of 5 inches is a normal resolution, pixelation is almost invisible, clear picture.
The maximum brightness of white color – 250 cd / m2 maximum brightness black – 0.30 cd / m2. Contrast Ratio – 800: 1.
The viewing angles are maximum, the picture is clear, natural colors, angles not violet and yellow. In general, the matrix is good, the only thing it lacks – a high brightness, contrast, although decent.
Battery ZTE Blade V7 Lite
This model ZTE Blade V7 Lite uses a non-removable lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery capacity of 2500 mAh. The manufacturer does not result in data autonomy.
Gadget time is exactly the same as any other budget of Android-smartphone with the same battery that is “Lives” about 6-7 hours in a relatively active mode with a connection to a 3G or 4G: 20-30 minutes of calls, about an hour using the camera, the same content, for 3-4 hours on Twitter and email. If you want to play, then expect about an hour at full brightness and full volume with the output to the speaker. Video playback – about 6 hours.
From the regular AC adapter is charging the battery for 3 hours from the USB PC – for 5-5.5 hours.
Communications ZTE Blade V7 Lite
This section could be and miss. It does not have anything interesting: two sim-cards, Wi-Fi b / g / n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS (works well, the sensitivity of the average). The only nice thing – the unit realizes the fourth generation 4G LTE network with frequencies 800/1800/2100/2600 MHz.
Memory and memory card ZTE Blade V7 Lite
Inside is 2 GB of RAM. For such a device is the amount of RAM – a good result. However, in the area of 14 000 rubles, you can find a PCT apparatus with three gigabytes of “RAM”.
The internal memory of 16 GB. Available around 10 GB. Apparently, a lot of “eat” the installed programs and the shell. Of course, it supports microSD memory cards, the maximum amount – 32 GB weak.
There are two modules, in fact, like almost any other similar smartphone: the main 13 MT (with auto focus, F2.0 aperture), and 8 MP front (f2.2 aperture, wide angle).
During the day the camera main unit removes bad: good detail, relatively accurate color, quite adequate dynamic range, beautiful background blur. Focus is accurate and fast (the impression that is the phase focus). Cons: the first – lathers on the corners, the second – with insufficient lighting conditions crawl artifacts and noise.
Outbreaks of two: one rear and one front. Effective distance glow the first – up to 1.7 meters, the second – 40-50 cm.
The front camera has a wide angle lens. The software seems to have a bug: the face is almost always out of focus, as if the applied strong effect blur. If this effect is not present, then the picture is nice.
Video device removes the standard – HD at 30 frames per second during the day and 16 to / from the evening. The quality is poor. Focusing induced “tachem”, average speed, high precision, close-up of about 5 cm. The sound is clean, but not very loud. Selfies and video and HD.
Performance and software platform
The device operates in the Taiwan chipset MediaTek MT6735P. This 64-bit of SoC, which contains 4 ARM Cortex-53 core, 28-nm process technology, the clock speed of each up to 1 GHz. As used graphics Mali T-720 with support for Open GL ES 3.0 and Open CL 1.2 API.
When the CPU load is practically not heated enclosure.
The interface works very fast, without any lags and brakes. With games typical situation: run all, but some complex games can be very slow (you must choose the lowest graphics settings). With simple no problems.
Benchmarks ZTE Blade V7 Lite
ZTE Blade V7 Lite smartphone runs on Google Android 6.0 operating system. There is a proprietary shell called Mifavor.
Present multiple desktops on which the icons are placed. Swipe up from the bottom is caused by the settings menu. It selected the background color, wallpaper, icons, and three types of effects paging. Long-term retention of a finger on any desktop – widgets.
Multimedia ZTE Blade V7 Lite
Music Player – a standard from Google. The headphone volume is high, the sound quality is slightly above average: a little lacking bass. Speaker volume is average, at maximum volume slightly strange noises in high frequency reproduction.
In this model, there is FM-radio.
ZTE Blade V7 Lite smartphone has turned out, in my view, ambiguous. It seems that all the parameters are not too expensive devices available, but their implementation is somewhat lame: weak processor, secondary camera, virtually useless frontal flash, not too responsive fingerprint sensor, low quality sound speaker, Android 6.0 is covered with lurid proprietary shell.
On the other side ZTE Blade V7 Lite – quality matrix display (although has a low backlight brightness), pleasant appearance, metal housing, two sim-cards and the presence of LTE.
