ZTE Blade S6 Review
The familiar-looking $250 phone, powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chip, will offer Android 5.0 Lollipop on the cheap in Asia.
Getting a decently priced smartphone right is a thorny problem. All too often manufacturers aim for Apple-inspired design and a premium feel despite cheaper components and materials, but fall well short.
On paper, I had high hopes for the ZTE Blade S6 but, unfortunately, it is no exception, despite laudable specs for an enticing price.
It’s certainly not a bad-looking device, resplendent with a perfectly reasonable 5-inch FED display which is not going to have pixel-ophiles queuing around the block but won’t upset its mass-market target audience.

But when you try to evoke Apple’s iPhone 6 mixed with a healthy slice of Samsung’s S range you are setting yourself up for a fall.
The curved design might remind you of a certain Cupertino phone but any scrutiny whatsoever will leave you asking why anyone thought aping the iPhone 6’s design was a good plan – when all it would bring is comparison.
The phone feels fairly well balanced in the hand, but the materials used in construction are certainly not lovingly crafted from a block of angel-kissed aluminium.
