Zte blade v good or bad ?

Getting offered a Zte blade V for £10.37 a month with virgin mobile for 200 mins, unlimited data , 500 texts fully insured etc 24 mth contract is there a possible better deal that you fellow virgin mobile people are getting and I should hold out for ?
I am happy with that but I'm glad they do a 14 day return cheers :)

  • It'll be fine for calling, texting, angry birds, etc. The screen isn't especially high res, the processor will do the basics, RAM is good though. Depends on what you want to do now and over the life of the contract.

    To be honest if you can afford to pay a bit up front and save on a sim only tariff get a Moto G sim free.

    It's not bad if you really need 200+500+Unltd+Insurance.

    150+200+500 is available for £30 in total for 2 years and more.
    Blade V costs £90+£10 on PAYG.
  • Never really understood why someone takes out a restrictive, 24 month contract on such a low priced phone, personally. As the poster earlier said, imo far better to go for the much superior Motorola Moto G upfront and pair it with one of the many superb value 30 days SIM deals out there (which start at nowt, btw).

    Moto G is a much better bet.

    Pick one up from Tesco on the cheap and unlock it for a fiver.

    Are there unlock codes for the Moto G? Just checked ebay and can't see any. TIA!

    Yes, I've done one myself :)

    Cheapest I know of is https://www.movical.net however you'll probably need Google Translate.

    Another vote for moto g, the phone of the moment, tesco seem to be the only people locking them at the moment but cheap from there if you can get one from there, look up this app, same as the movical website above. If you don't need unlimited data have a look at ovivo.

    Nice one! :) I'm assuming it works just like the ones you get off ebay - an unlock code is sent to you?
