I keep seeing the same theme over and over again - the Blade v8 Pro is mid-range so we should expect no security patches, no OS upgrades, no support, etc. etc. I'm fine with all that. How about a bootloader unlock then? The phone isn't getting any newer - how about if ZTE unlocks the bootloader (I understand they were willing to help with this on other models) and we'll get something else (Lineage, AOSP) working on the phone down the road? I would be a lot more likely to buy another phone from ZTE. I am strongly leaning towards the Moto G line for my next mid-range because Motorola is a lot nicer about unlocking the bootloader.
