Features, Performance, and Reviews for the ZTE Blade A601 8GB

ZTE Blade A601 8GB 's size

The "ZTE Blade A601 8GB" is 71.2mm wide, 145mm tall, and 9.5mm 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 A601 8GB", it weighs about 152g. 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 A601 8GB", 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 A601 8GB 's screen

The "ZTE Blade A601 8GB" has a 5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The resolution of the "ZTE Blade A601 8GB"'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 A601 8GB

The processing performance of the "ZTE Blade A601 8GB" is quite low at 1.0GHz×4(Quad core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The "ZTE Blade A601 8GB" only has 1GB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the "ZTE Blade A601 8GB"'s overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

ZTE Blade A601 8GB 's storage capacity

The "ZTE Blade A601 8GB" has 8GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the "ZTE Blade A601 8GB" 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.

The camera function of ZTE Blade A601 8GB

The main camera of the "ZTE Blade A601 8GB" has a capacity of 8 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The "ZTE Blade A601 8GB" comes equipped with a 2 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of ZTE Blade A601 8GB

The "ZTE Blade A601 8GB" has a battery with a quite large capacity of 4000mAh. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the "ZTE Blade A601 8GB" is very good and will no doubt satisfy all your needs. 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.

Overall assessment of ZTE Blade A601 8GB

The "ZTE Blade A601 8GB"'s performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.
