ZTE Blade A3 2020 - very inexpensive and not too terrible

The Russian market introduced a smartphone ZTEBlade A3 2020 - the exact opposite of the flagships. Very modest in specifications, running Android 9.0 Go Edition. Very cheap. They promise to go on sale in early March at an estimated price of 4490 rubles.

It is clear that with such a price tag, complaining about the low processor power, the lack of a fingerprint scanner and NFC support is somehow embarrassing, but the RAM is still small - 1 GB in total.

The smartphone has an 8 megapixel main camera (even with HDR mode) and a 5 megapixel front camera. 2600 mAh battery More or less tolerant.

But there are pluses.

This is an unexpectedly decent 5.45-inch screen with HD + resolution. This is a very solid 32 gigabytes of internal memory for such a device with the possibility of expanding up to 128 GB. This is 4G support.

ZTE Blade A3 2020 will be available in three colors - dark gray, red and purple.
