If you want to get access to popular apps but is rather low on budget, Android is the way to go. Unlike other platforms, Android offers a host of options both for the well-off and the budget conscious. Among the cheaper Android phones that have landed in Philippine shores is the ZTE Blade III handset. It is a 4-inch Android phone that runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. At 4 inches, the ZTE Blade III is the same size as the iPhone 5 and the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S III Mini.
In terms of design, the ZTE Blade III is quite nice. It’s cheap alright, but the design does not show it. Of course it remains to be seen how this phone will fare in actual use. The hardware specs are pretty basic which are only expected from an Android phone with this price. Inside the ZTE Blade III are a 1GHz Qualcomm processor, 512MB of RAM, a 4GB internal memory, a 5-megapixel camera and a 1600 mAh Li-ion battery. Here are the main specs of the ZTE Blade III.
