The camera function of ZTE Blade A3 32GB

The "ZTE Blade A3 32GB" has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The "ZTE Blade A3 32GB" comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The "ZTE Blade A3 32GB" has a battery with a quite large capacity of 4000mAh.

You won't have to worry about the battery even when you use the phone to watch videos or play games for hours on end.

ZTE Blade A3 32GB 's size

The "ZTE Blade A3 32GB" is 75.8mm wide, 152.4mm tall, and 8.2mm thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the "ZTE Blade A3 32GB", it weighs about 164g. The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the "ZTE Blade A3 32GB", while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

ZTE Blade A3 32GB 's screen

The "ZTE Blade A3 32GB" has a 5.5 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the "ZTE Blade A3 32GB"'s screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of ZTE Blade A3 32GB

The processing power of the "ZTE Blade A3 32GB" is, at 1.5GHz×4(Quad core), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The "ZTE Blade A3 32GB" has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the "ZTE Blade A3 32GB" rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

ZTE Blade A3 32GB 's storage capacity

The "ZTE Blade A3 32GB" has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the "ZTE Blade A3 32GB" is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of ZTE Blade A3 32GB

The "ZTE Blade A3 32GB" is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
