The ZTE Blade S6 is the new Android phone from ZTE that greatly resembles the iPhone 6.  It has the same curved design, the same metallic finish, and the same overall appearance.  I wouldn’t be surprised if phone cases for the iPhone 6 would fit in the ZTE Blade S6.  It’s actually a clever idea to copy the most popular phone in the world as it most surely attracts buyers.


As to internals, the ZTE Blade S6 actually holds its own against the iPhone 6.  The ZTE Blade S6 has impressive internals one might think it can be better than the iPhone 6.  The ZTE Blade S6 runs on an octa-core, 64-bit Snapdragon processor, packs 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera.  It also has microSD expansion support, LTE connectivity and it’s dual-SIM to boot. Here are the main specs of the ZTE Blade S6.
