ZTE Kis White - Pocket-lint

 

For a budget phone the ZTE Kis gets a lot right. It looks good for the price and Android 2.3 is a decent enough experience. But don't expect much from

Affordable, 2GB microSD storage included (expandable), good telephony experience, responsive touchscreen

Screen viewing angle isn't great, none too powerful, slow browsing and app loading

If you're in the market for a budget mobile phone then they don't come cheaper than the ZTE Kis. The white version we've reviewed here looks rather fetching too - or at least it certainly punches well beyond its £50 handset price tag. That's not to say...

ZTE Kis review

 

Can ZTE break from its network-branded roots with this budget offering?

Decent keyboard ; Stylish design ; Loud rear speaker ; Responsive ; 12 months' free data

Very poor viewing angle ; No Flash support ; Lack of Facebook ; Tiny internal storage ; Bloatware

Coming out of network-branded obscurity is a path that many mobile phone manufacturers are taking.

ZTE Kis

 

A surprisingly capable little Android handset at a rock-bottom price.

Low price ; Sturdy, good looking design ; Long battery life ; Good performance for the price

Camera could have been a little bit better

It may be a little more costly than competitors like Alcatel's OT-903, but the ZTE Kis more than justifies its slightly higher asking price tag thanks to its higher resolution screen, faster processor and long battery life. The price of Android phones...

ZTE Kis review

 

Usually we shy away from introductory paragraphs about how expensive things used to be and how cheap they are now, but the falling prices of Android smartphones justify just such a tired intro format. Two years ago the idea of a pay-as-you-go...

Even cheaper than it appears, and with no major flaws, the ZTE Kis an incredible bargain

ZTE Kis Review: In Depth

 

The ZTE Kis is a £50 phone exclusive to Virgin Media with £10 top-up. £50, that's about a tenth of the price of a Samsung Galaxy S3 and a quarter of the price of a Sony Xperia U. What makes this Kis…

Great price ; Solid build ; Zippy performance

Poor screen ; Busy user interface ; Low internal memory

ZTE Kis - Review

 

Budget phones have a place in the world, as not everyone can afford to have the latest and greatest handset. I find reviewing entry level phones harder than the rest. Quite often with no standout features you are left clutching [...

ZTE Kis Review

 

The ZTE Kis is a budget handset that tries hard to be something more

Chunky, comfy body; cheap price for Android; reasonable budget display

Low-res screen not ideal for media; app and browser crashes
