ZTE Blade A2S is a new phone from ZTE that comes with a bit smaller screen than what we usually have seen 2017. Many new phones this year has had at least 5.5” display. This phone comes with just a 5.2” display.
Main specs: Fingerprint, 5.2” display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB Internal storage, MT6753 Octa-core processor, 4G Connectivity, 128GB TF card support, Fast Fingerprint ID, Metal body, 2.5D Curved Design and 13MP Rear Camera!
Blade A2S looks a little bit like Huawei Mate 9 on the back design. It comes with a 5MP front facing selfie camera. You can insert two Nano SIM cards perfect for a vacation.
The phone is running on Android 6.0 and the processor is clocked at 1.3GHz. I don’t see the major selling point with this smartphone when you can get a Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A for just a little higher price.
It has a pretty slim thickness just 7.5mm and the weight is 145 grams. The battery inside packs 2540mAh battery which is not the best I have seen many phones for around this price that comes with 3000mAh battery installed. You can’t remove the battery.
It’s nice that it packs a metal build instead of plastic and also good how it comes with a 3.5mm earphone jack. Something many new phones doesn’t have pre-installed. Two colours are available Gold and Gray.
Blade A2S seem to have a home button installed but it doesn’t look like you can push it down as a hardware button so probably just a glass button. The front design reminds me about iPhone 4S but without a home button. The gold edition definitely looks the best out of the two. But I still feel like it’s something missing here to make you truly wanna invest and buy the phone.
