Know Your Mobile

Slow processor, sluggish camera, screen is unresponsive

from Know Your Mobile

While other low-cost Android phones have surprised us by offering accomplished packages for not much outlay, the Blade L2 has all the trappings of a device produced on a shoestring. It's thin and looks nice enough, but the screen often fails to register input, the internal memory is limited, the OS is outdated and the camera - despite offering some cool shooting modes - produces lackluster photos and is slow to activate. Obviously when you don't have much cash to spend you can't expect to get the very best Android has to offer, but there are much better budget options out there than this.Full review
