    Specs are pretty lame, but 112 dollars? All I can say is 'Wow'. I think I might actually buy this.

    looks ok and if its only $100 it sounds like a crazy awesome deal wont play games well but should be decent enough for texting and listening to music

    Even at the price of 112 € (yes thats how prices translate here in europe....f taxes) it will be worth it im just a bit unsure about the mediatek soc but at that price .... and to those complaining about games most games I tried on my S2 werent all fhat cracked up to be to need a superphone to runthem... . So depending on screen quality (aka not like the cheap crap lcds Samsung uses) and camera quality this can be a good or great phone for anyone not wanting to shell out a ton of money for a smartphone.

    a significant step up from the original blade I'm still using. The screen on this old version is actually very good and I didn't get an early oled one either.

    I sure hope they manage to improve the camera though, the original is atrocious!

    for the price is definitely good, really nice there is a good market for smartphones like these, running simple apps, like social networks, simple games, having internet access, I still know of plenty people that still using dumbphones cuz they can't afford an Android or anything, this will be welcomed

    If you are looking for a good phone check out new Pentagram Monster P430 from Polish manufacturer. It has good enough screen(960 x 540 IPS), good enough dual core CPU(Qualcomm QRD MSM8225 SKU5 1.2 GHz), runs Android 4.0.4, and a monster in place of standard battery - awesome 4100 mAh battery :)

    Also, traditionally, low end Android have lagged like hell. With these specs, this should be pretty smooth experience, and I wonder how ZTE can afford it.
