ZTE Corporation is a Chinese partially state-owned multinational telecommunications equipment and systems company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. It is one of China’s leading telecom equipment manufacturers.
ZTE operates in three business units: carrier networks (54%), terminals (29%) and telecommunication (17%), their core products being wireless, exchange, access, optical transmission, and data telecommunications gear; mobile phones; and telecommunications software.
It also offers products that provide value-added services, such as video on demand and streaming media. ZTE primarily sold products under its own name, but it is also an OEM. ZTE is one of the top five largest smartphone manufacturers in its home market.
As with Huawei, the company has faced criticism in the United States over potential ties to the Chinese government that could enable surveillance. In 2017, ZTE was fined for illegally exporting U.S. technology to Iran and North Korea in violations of economic sanctions. In April 2018, after the company failed to properly reprimand the employees involved, the U.S. Department of Commerce banned U.S. companies (semiconductors) from exporting to ZTE for seven years. The ban was lifted in July 2018 after ZTE replaced its senior management, and agreed to pay additional fines and establish an internal compliance team for 10 years.In June 2020, the Federal Communications Commission designated ZTE a national security threat, thereby barring it from any U.S. subsidies.
“Great phone for the price” – by Darick Petrik (Visalia, CA)The Zte Blade v8 pro is actually a really nice phone for the price. It’s built very sturdy. Like the feeling of the glass curving into the metal case similar to iphone 6s. The plastic back doesn’t really bother me like it has some reviewers on youtube. To me it makes the phone easier to hold. I am known to be clumsy with my phones so i also bought the zte case which i’ll review separately. The fingerprint sensor works great. Just as good as my old Galaxy s6. The screen looks nice and i can see it fine in direct sunllight. It doesn’t get as bright as my Samsung but its still very viewable when outdoors. I immediately put a custom launcher on it as im used to using Nova launcher on my android phones anyways. I’ve noticed.
The screen is very nice, not great, but hey its a phone. Its a little smaller than the Lenovo I had and that is a mild downer, but not a biggie. My larger fingers have to pause before typing but your results may differ as they say. I had read some reviews on the ZTE ZMAX2 in the past and they were favorable so I bought this one.
