|An affordable quad-core Android smartphone from global mobile brand, ZTE BLADE E are for those who are looking for entry level quad-core gadgets with a right mix of specs and functionality.|
I'm waiting for affordable global mobile brand to offer Filipinos with quad-core Android phone and I spotted ZTE v956 BLADE E selling for P6,600.
It rivals Cherry Mobile FLAME 2.0/THUNDER 2.0 and Arc Mobile NITRO 450QD - all budget quad-core Android phones. I hope Lenovo and Huawei will also release an affordable Quad-core powered Android smartphones for Pinoy masses priced at P7K or less than P10K.
