India is one of the most important market and we are happy to introduce a powerful device like V5 for the users here.”

Although a new entry in the smartphone industry in India, the ZTE V5 offers a great value for money offering to consumers. After sales support is an issue that ZTE should address if they want to flourish in India. Xiaomi Redmi 1S offers a similar specification sheet but with a slightly smaller display and camera resolution, at half the price. Consumers should definitely look at the Xiaomi offering before going for the V5.
