  1. ZTE V970

    Posted by Pavlos on 7th Jan 2014

    I bought two phones zte v970.They are really good.The only problem is that in one of them the led notification dosn't work especially the green colour.The same phone one time per month do a restart..itself.(close and reopen asking sim pin)

    Pavlos thank you for sharing your review with us. For the issues seems that they're only firmware related. You can email us at techhelp@merimobiles.com so we can help you better. Take care.

  5. Value for money

    Posted by Sur on 5th Jul 2013

    Received in 2 weeks. Great value for money and very good after sales support for some of my questions on software.

    The software problem please email us and we will help you solve it. thank you.

  6. Great phone, great support

    Posted by James P on 4th Jul 2013

    Bought three of these phones for myself and a couple of friends. The V970 represents great value in that price range. It is well built and runs nearly every app smoothly. Would definitely recommend bruno's ICS or Jellybean ROMs
    I would also like to thank the staff @ merimobiles for answering any and all questions and being very helpful with the shipping process

    Thank you so much for taking time to review this unit and also for recommending some awesome ROMS for this phone. We appreciate it a lot.

  7. Front Camera?

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Jun 2013

    Does it come with a front camera?

    the ZTE V970 does not have a front camera, it has a ZTE V970 only, thank you

  8. Shipping time

    Posted by Raj Shree on 14th Jun 2013

    Reply fast...

    yes its possible, please order with EMS express or DHL express, thank you

  9. Excellent value in good looking package

    Posted by longo213 on 10th Jun 2013

    When I was looking for no-nonsense upgrade from my aging ZTE Blade, I knew it will be something with MTK6577 SoC. It was only later (after checking all possible forums and so on) when I decided to stick with the brand and go for V970. And the reality surprised me, the phone is reasonably fast, good looking and most of it's limitations are details I knew about from beginning and could live with.
    I'm getting about two and two and half days from the battery only with 3G switched off during the night, but other than that I'm using internet for browsing, reading articles on Flipboard, checking emails from 6 mailboxes (using K9), and stay online all the time. And still have enough "juice" to have 10-15 calls per day.
    As far for Merimobiles services goes - I received the phone within 10 days, which is awesome. They have been nothing but helpful all the time. I am really satisfied with this purchase.

    thank you for taking the time to post a review on teh ZTE V970, its well appreciated

  10. Great value for money

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Jun 2013

    i bought this phone mainly for the two sim but it proved really powerfull! it doesn't lag anywere! i changed the rom and its a little bit faster! perfect phone and a serious vfm!

    thank you for taking the time to post a review on the ZTE V970, its well appreciated

  12. ΖΤΕ best as ever

    Posted by Dimitris on 31st May 2013

    I bought this after 3 years old ZTE Blade (San Francisco) cause I wanted one with 2 sim slots. Great Manufacturing and very fast. I didn't like the pre-installed rom and I flashed another one.
    Great choise!

    thank you for taking the time to post a review on teh ZTE V970, its well appreicated

  13. one of the best ZTE v970

    Posted by Chris on 30th May 2013

    hey i know this mobile from a friend and over Internet. i´m absolute satisfied.it´s the one what i want no more. price performance is very good. If you want to order do this over the 3,99€ shipping. I do this over the DHL faster delivery with 17,99€. the customs peeps then probably more closely because it is declared as a $ 20 gift that seems to not denkbar.Auch when the cheaper shipping will take longer to take it out because otherwise they might have to pay customs duties

    thank you for taking the time to post a review on teh ZTE V970 , its well appreciated

  14. Brilliant and good camera too

    Posted by Unknown on 28th May 2013

    Recently bought this phone for my wife. By mistake, I forgot to ask for European apps. So make sure you do that if you don't want the Chinese system that won't work in Europe. After rooting and installing a new ROM everything was great. Its very fast, good, bright screen. Good battery life. Most impressed with the camera, which is the best 5M one I've seen. The only issue is there is no front cam.. but that's made clear in the description to was no problem. Service was excellent in helping me sort our the ROM. Highly recommended.

    Thank you very much.

  15. excellent mobile

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd May 2013

    it is the best double sim card mobile

    Thank you for your taking time to post a review on ZTE V970, its well appreciated.

  16. Language

    Posted by Dimitrios on 19th May 2013

    The ID from my order is # 49041 could you install the greek language? Thank you

    Yes. we will install it for you. thank you.

  17. Review

    Posted by St on 19th May 2013

    I have the mobile about a month. I live in Greece. It arrived in 22 days. Although i have had a problem with the rooting rom, merimobile's technical support has been very very helpful. Merimobiles.com is super-reliable and ZTE 970 a cell phone that worths every cent.

    Thank you very much. :)

  18. Language

    Posted by Dimitrios on 18th May 2013

    Must i pay for the greek lagnuage instalation?

    It is free to install the greek language for you.Thank you.

  19. Language

    Posted by Dimitrios on 17th May 2013

    If i buy this phone will it have the greek menu? or must i do it by my self?

    Sorry, there is not greek menu,but we could install greek language in the phone if you request it . Thank you.

  20. Great value for money

    Posted by An European customer on 15th May 2013

    For a phone this affordable it provides great value for your money. It has the feel of a much more expensive phone. I used to have the old ZTE Blade and it is a toy compared to the V970.

    Make no mistake though, the phone does not compare to high end phones, but beats the cr*p out of the competition at this price range. New low end/cheap quad core MTK phones might give this a run for it's money but before they are more readily available this is a viable and recommended option.

    The community support is good too. The phone was very easy to root and a JB 4.1 rom is available that works very good.

    thank you for taking the time to post a review on the ZTE V970, its well appreciated

  21. looking and working good

    Posted by Unknown on 15th May 2013

    Have Android 4.1 update or only 4.0 ?

  39. Excellent value for money

    Posted by tenere on 4th Apr 2013

    I have this phone for like 3 weeks or something. Good signal (not excellent - no real problems though), good sound in speaker, fast processor, nice design, good battery (if you don't have everything on all the time), sufficient ram for apps, good build quality. Only downside is the mediocre camera but hey! For this kind of money it can't get any better than the v970, I think.
    Communication with merimobiles has been excellent, no problems with shiping or customs (use singapore post).
    I will buy again from here, probably a tablet very soon.

    Thank you for your taking time to post review on ZTE V970 3G, it's well appreciated!

  63. Good phone, slow GPS, poor camera

    Posted by Unknown on 31st Dec 2012

    This is my first smartphone, but it was easy enough to get to grips with. All the basic functions work well, apart from some screen flicker sometimes when automatic brightness is selected. The GPS is so slow to get a fix and seems to have weak reception. The camera takes muddy, poorly-focused shots but it's adequate for snaps. As a phone it works well.

    thank you for taking the time to post a review its well appreciated, thanks

  64. compass?
