ZTE Blade V30 Vita was among the expected announcements from 2021. It is positioned as a budget smartphone with a large battery capacity. It runs on Google Android version 11, has 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. We notice a slight minus in the display in terms of resolution and a slightly larger one when choosing a chipset.

Visually, the ZTE Blade V30 Vita does not promise revolutions, nor pave the way for the design of the future. This model is more than usual. Its back panel is made of plastic. The camera module, formed in the upper left corner, is a rectangle that extends slightly above the body. The rounded edges and the pleasant play of light on the panel create a pleasant vision that many will not resist.
Looking at the front panel, we see a screen that occupies a large part of it (91%) and is surrounded by frankly wide frames. The device is available in several colors - blue, green and black. A good impression is made by the fact that the front side is protected by glass with oleophobic coating of excellent quality.
Weighing just over 200 grams and measuring standard on large smartphones on the market, the ZTE Blade V30 Vita is the typical representative in its class. It fits comfortably in the palm and can be operated with one hand.
Nowadays, many users hold on to the big screen. This is exactly what you get in the ZTE Blade V30 Vita. It has a diagonal of 6.82 inches, HD +, IPS LCD and a resolution of 1640 x 720 pixels. Its brightness is not the highest, but it is typical for this budget class. If you have a habit of reading content from your smartphone outdoors, you may have difficulty with this model. Text is not visible well. You will not have this problem indoors.
ZTE Blade V30 Vita is based on the Unisoc SC9863A chipset, which was announced on the market in 2018. The graphics are IMG PowerVR GE8322. The device is available in one modification - with 3 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, which you can expand with a memory card. Given the freshness of the processor, it can be said that this is one of the disadvantages of the ZTE Blade V30 Vita. It cannot provide performance that exceeds expectations.
You will easily play games, surf and use simple applications. The smartphone comes with Google Android 11 and the company's MiFavorUI 10.5 interface.
One of the reasons to choose ZTE Blade V30 Vita lies in its cameras. The rear camera consists of three modules. The main one is a 48-megapixel one with an aperture of f / 1.79. It is complemented by a 5 MP sensor designed for macro photography, and a 2 MP camera to create a digital bokeh effect. The front camera is single, 8-megapixel and has an aperture of f / 2.0.
Given the price of the smartphone, its photographic capabilities are quite touchy. The colors are not always adequate, but are often close to natural. In macro mode you can create tolerable photos.
The front camera leaves a good impression - high detail, juicy and accurate colors, wide dynamic range.
If you choose ZTE Blade V30 Vita for your next smartphone, you will be able to record videos with a resolution of up to 1080 pixels. The interface is super easy to use.
ZTE Blade V30 Vita has a lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. In the set you get an 18W adapter. Good news is the support for fast charging. However, they are absent wirelessly and reversibly.
To orient yourself in the capabilities of the device as a stand-alone operation, we will give a few examples. Continuous video watching at maximum brightness will discharge the charge after about 8 hours. Playing games - faster, after about 6 hours. It takes 2.5 hours to fully charge the battery. This is a good indicator and guarantees that you will soon be able to use your smartphone again.
ZTE Blade V30 Vita is a budget device that provides basic capabilities. Its technical parameters are not the strongest. You certainly won't like its performance, as well as the low brightness of the screen.
At the same time, this smartphone has its positive sides. These are the autonomous work, the quality of workmanship, the matrix, the support of contactless NFC payments, the simultaneous work with 2 SIM cards and the precise work of the fingerprint scanner. The cameras aren't bad either. You get all this for a low price.
Let's not forget that the screen is quite large - it predisposes to interact with different content.
