ZTE Blade Vantage

Design-wise, the Vantage is about as conventional as they come: it’s your standard plastic-and-glass slab with a textured greyish brown rear panel. On the front you’ll find a 5-inch display with a slightly disappointing resolution of 854×480 pixels. Inside you’ll find the 2014 Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset, coupled with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of expandable storage.
