I have the opportunity to purchase a used ZTE phone from a family member who had a problem with it not booting or something so they bought a new phone. I suggested he try boot into recovery and restore to factory settings which he did and the phone seems fine now so he wants to try sell it.


The phone is rebranded by "Telecom" which is New Zealands major phone company. Here is the phone:




I cannot find any information of custom roms, reviews for the phone and I dont see any subforum on modaco about the R880H so I guess it has a different name in the rest of the world?


My current phone is Huawei Y300 and im happy with it but the specs look slightly better on this ZTE model. Would it be worthwhile to upgrade to it? are there many custom roms available for it.

What other name is the phone known by so I can do some research?


Thanks for any help :)

Try to use the last version of antutu and cpu-z for more info about the internal componentes (CPU, GPU and the other sensors), with this information you can restrict the search to terminals with generic code that have been released the same year by ZTE.

Thanks for the reply Durreau, I dont have the phone to check and im not really familiar with terminals with generic code. Im not a technical user. :)

Im hoping someone can tell me: "Oh yes thats called a ZTE Blade, or thats a ZTE Racer. Its a great phone with lots of active development and custom stuff. GET IT!"


I found some better pictures...
