ZTE Blade Star 2, a smartphone with voice control

The range of devices that the Asian manufacturer has brought to this edition of the MWC it is simply overwhelming. We have already shown you all the secrets of the ZTE Blade S6, the ZTE Blade S6 Plus and the ZTE Spro 2.

Now we are going to show you all the secrets of ZTE Blade Star 2, a device with voice control and that, although it currently only recognizes Chinese and English, it will soon have support for Spanish.


ZTE continues to bet on polycarbonate as a building material for the vast majority of devices and the ZTE Blade Star 2 was not going to be an exception. Despite the plastic, the terminal is pleasant to the touch and is easy to handle.

With 140.3 x 69.2 x 6.9 mm It is clear that the ZTE Blade Star 2 is not an excessively large terminal and its thickness makes it quite comfortable to hold. As you can see in the images, this model follows the design trail of the Blade range.


Your screen 5 inch TFT offers a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Admittedly, it looks very good and its 16 million colors are noticeable. It has a good angle of vision, more than fulfilling its mission.

The processor of the ZTE Blade Star 2 is made up of an SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core 2.3 GHz of power that, together with its 2 GB of RAM memory, will allow you to enjoy any game without problems.

Android 4.4 KitKat is in charge of moving this device, although under the custom layer of ZTE Ui Mifavor 3.0. Its 16 GB of internal storage expandable by micro SD cards seem more than enough for a terminal of these characteristics.

Instead the 2,300 mAh battery It seems to us a bit scarce considering the weight of the hardware it has to support. We will have to wait for more exhaustive performance tests to see how it holds up to the daily jog.

The main camera of the ZTE Blade Star 2 is made up of a 13 megapixel lens with dual LED flash. The captures we have made have left a good taste in our mouths. In this aspect there is nothing to object.

As for the front camera, ZTE has integrated a 5 megapixel sensor that allows you to take selfies with a more than sufficient quality or make video calls with a more than acceptable quality.

The most remarkable feature of this device comes with its voice recognition system. This assistant, which is always active, offers the possibility to control the ZTE Blade Star 2 through voice commands.

We can save a contact seriess so that when you say your name and press the Home button, the device will automatically make a call. We can also order that, for example, you start playing music or take a photo.

The tests we have done have left us more than satisfied. The system has always recognized our orders and, taking into account that the ZTE stand is one of the loudest, we must recognize the good work of the manufacturer.

Unfortunately currently the ZTE Blade Star 2 supports only Chinese and EnglishAlthough the guys at ZTE have promised us that in a very short time the device will be updated to allow orders in Spanish.

A very interesting terminal. I really liked the voice control system, although not so much the fact that it has not yet been updated to Android 5.0 L. Anyway, if you are looking for a terminal that you can control without lifting a finger, the ZTE Blade Star 2 is knocking on your door.

Well, when it hits the European market. And, although ZTE has promised us that this device will land on the Old Continent, we do not know the exact date or the price. Although taking into account its technical characteristicsYes, we can assume that it will be around 400 – 500 euros.
