Initial impressions are very good. The build quality is so much better than the G300 and past two Blades. There are no annoying plastic creaks that the G300 suffered from when pressed. It feels like a premium device to hold, much more than an £80 device.
I'm really surprised at how well ICS performs. It is miles ahead from the G300, which is surprising since the specs are pretty much identical The Blade 3 was an ICS device from launch, so I guess ZTE had the chance to build the software from the ground up, whereas the G300 originally launched with Gingerbread and only received an ICS OTA update at a later date.
Animations and scrolling are very smooth. You can search for videos on YouTube to see for yourself. The device is snappy all around, more so than the G300.
If you have any questions, please do ask. Anyone else with the phone can feel free to contribute too.
