How to Turn on a Flashlight on a Zte Blade A6

Appearance

The ZTE Blade A910 has a slim case with a matte texture and aluminum frames.

On its right side is a tray where you can install either two SIM cards or one plus a memory card. ZTE uses a combined slot in most of its devices. Also on the right side, under the tray is the power key, and the volume rocker was placed on the left.

On the back plastic cover there are strips “under the antenna”, however, their purpose is purely decorative, because the signal passes through the plastic so well.

At the bottom there are two decorative slots, under one of which is a speaker, a micro-USB connector, and on the top there is a microphone and audio jack.

Ergonomics

Despite the large screen, the ZTE Blade A910 is comfortable to hold in your hand. the “Back”, “Menu” and “Home” buttons are located on the screen, the frames are minimal, all this greatly reduces the size. The thickness of the case is less than seven millimeters, and the smartphone does not slip in the hand. In addition, the smartphone is lightweight, weighs only 135 grams.

The control buttons are very conveniently located: the power button lies directly under the thumb of the right hand, and the volume rocker. under the middle one. The fingerprint scanner is under the index, gropes well, it is difficult to miss.

The ZTE Blade A910 is made not bad, all parts are fitted close to each other.

Screen

The ZTE Blade A910 screen has a Super AMOLED matrix with a resolution of 720×1280 and an impressive diagonal of 5.5 inches. Super AMOLED displays are known for their low power consumption and rich colors (including deep blacks), and this one is no exception.

The picture may even seem too saturated, and the dark areas are too deep, but it can be adjusted in the settings menu: using the MiraVision system you can adjust the saturation, brightness, contrast, sharpness and other parameters. Literally in three actions, it was possible to achieve a more natural and eye-friendly color rendition.

There are no complaints about screen clarity. HD resolution is enough to create a smooth image without visible pixels.

Also, the display has good viewing angles and a high-quality touch panel that recognizes ten simultaneous touches.

Interface

ZTE Blade A910 runs Android 6.0 with proprietary firmware, which in addition to additional features offers a number of external changes. for example, the lack of an application menu and the ability to more flexibly customize the appearance of the interface compared to standard Android.

The system supports gesture control. These include controlling the player and launching applications from the screen off, auto-call and auto answer when you bring the smartphone to your ear, turning off the alarm when the device turns the screen down (this happens so naturally that there is a risk of oversleeping), launching a flashlight or calculator by shaking, and many other options, some of which are configured individually.

The phone application can be used in landscape orientation.

The fingerprint scanner has other functions besides unlocking the device. For example, you can make fingerprint verification mandatory for launching selected applications (up to five), including directly from the locked screen. In normal navigation, the scanner works like a “Back” button, returning to the previous screen. With it, you can double-click to take a screenshot, hold the flashlight on while the screen is off, and take pictures in the camera application. You can also use swipe. to scroll through tracks, change the volume, minimize and maximize the notification panel.

There is a minus. for all functions except the flashlight, the scanner does not work when the screen is off. That is, you need to press the power button, and only after that apply a finger.

The device is in operation

The ZTE Blade A910 runs the popular MediaTek MT6735 processor. The memory in the device is 2 GB of operational and 16 GB of internal, plus there is support for microSD memory cards. The Mali-T720 GPU is working on the picture.

You can play Doodle Jump DC Super Heroes without any problems: the sensors are sensitive, the animation is excellent. In the dynamic 3D game Lara Croft: Relic Run, micrologs happen, sometimes noticeable. But they do not interfere with the gameplay.

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus: from time to time. braking on special effects. The World of Tanks Blitz had no problems besides heating.

Benchmark results are standard for devices running on this SoC.

The speaker is quite vociferous, but at a volume above 50% high frequencies reproduces not clean enough.

Camera

The ZTE Blade A910 is equipped with a 13-megapixel main camera with phase autofocus and a wide-angle (88 °) front-facing resolution of 8 megapixels.

Switching between shooting modes in the camera application is cleverly hidden: you need to swipe to the right, then the panorama and PIP (“picture in picture”) icons will appear, in which the frame is simultaneously made by the main camera and the front.

The pictures do not always have the correct color rendering, and the camera does not very efficiently focus on closely located objects. Otherwise, there are no complaints: the application starts up quickly and does not slow down, when landscape photography, the focus is instant, and if the lighting is good, in most cases, color reproduction and clarity are also in order.

It was not so easy to shoot a panorama with a smooth horizon on the ZTE Blade A910.

A clear photo of the text was not obtained at the first attempt. you need to hold the smartphone properly.

The selfie camera is good, it produces clear shots. Small cons. noise and not always true color rendering.

ZTE Blade A910 conducts recording in HD resolution (1290×720).

Wireless interfaces

Of the modern set of wireless interfaces, the ZTE Blade A910 lacks only NFC, everything else is in place. Wi-Fi and LTE work quickly, and both SIM card slots support LTE. There is a Bluetooth module 4.1 generation. GPS is rather slow. it took a few minutes for the first time to determine the location (“cold” start).

Offline work

The battery capacity of the ZTE is 2540 mAh. Its charge lasts for nine and a half hours of playback at maximum screen brightness. this is an indicator above the average. With very active use (watchings, games, working cameras, the screen is on for a long time), the charge lasts about seven hours. Accordingly, in the usual everyday version, when the smartphone is sometimes still at rest, the battery easily “survives” until the evening. In games, he spends 18-20 percent per hour.

Summary

If we evaluate the ZTE Blade A910 in brief, we can say with confidence that the smartphone turned out to be interesting. Autonomy at a normal level, firmware is buggy and with many features, the fingerprint scanner is perfectly integrated into the system. I would like a newer hardware, but for my money the “filling” justifies itself. a smartphone costs 13,990 rubles.

Pros:

  • slim body;
  • multifunctional fingerprint scanner;
  • large screen;
  • good autonomy.

Minuses:

  • not always the correct color rendering when photographing;
  • The fingerprint scanner does not work when the screen is off.
