ZTE Blade II / Orange San Francisco II
ZTE Blade II NFC enabled handset is the successor to ZTE Blade launched in 2010. Attention, NFC seems to be optional !
ZTE about this handset; The Blade “sold remarkably well” and the Blade II “is expected to be popular”.
“The Blade series aims at the fashionable crowd. To suit their needs, Blade II also uses the battery cover’s color to create special visual effects. The phone is available in deep coffee and white. The white handset has the silver gray battery cover, and the deep coffee handset has a champagne battery cover.”
“Blade II is thin and looks even thinner with angled sides. At the lower edge of the body, the sloping lends a sophisticated refinement to the handset.”
The Blade II is well made with hard plastics, its parts are properly assembled. It feels firm and secure in your hand without being heavy (120 g).
A mid-range product, according to ZTE. Reviewers talk about budget/low-end.
Very nice specifications for a budget price.
Available in the UK as the Orange San Francisco II, assume without NFC, nowhere a word about NFC.
