Built to endure: Blade Vec 4G is built for the active lifestyle, featuring a sleek profile of meticulously crafted carbon fiber case and intuitively position buttons. It’s thin but surprisingly durable and comfortable to hold, with well-defined edges and corners which make for a good looking sleek black device that’s not only light to carry, but also light on the pocket as well.

Capture and share: Capture life’s precious moments and share them without a glitch with Blade Vec 4G’s versatile cameras and 4G-LTE connectivity. Snap vibrant, worth sharing photos and high quality videos with the 8 megapixel main camera equipped with LED flash and autofocus. The 1 megapixel camera captures selfies and clips for video calls.

Hands free convenience: Blade Vec 4G is one of the first few smartphones pre-loaded Google Now Launcher among non-Nexus and non-Google Play devices worldwide. With Google Now, voice recognition takes a new level. Experience the convenience of hands-free functionality and get the right information at just the right time, from NBA updates to flight details. No need to reach for your phone, just tell the phone what to do. Say “Okay Google” and Blade Vec 4G will not only unlock or search the web for you, it can even text a message, get directions, or play a song, set reminders and alarms, open apps and do just about everything you tell it to.

Like I said, this release comes with a handful of interesting features but off hand, I find its design, display, and 4G connectivity option to be its greatest assets. All things considered, I'd say ZTE Blade Vec 4G is not bad for Php 9,990. Not bad at all! In fact, I'm now totally looking forward to taking this one out for a spin. Thumbs up, ZTE and MSI-ECS!
