ZTE Grand X smartphone – What you need to know

Aimed at the growing youth market that has been so successfully cornered by Blackberry in the past, the ZTE Grand X smartphone is set to deliver a wide range of features for those on a more modest budget.

Loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Grand X is trying to get down with the kid through a tie-up with rap artist Professor Green – only time will tell whether this actually works.

“ZTE Grand X brings high-end mobile video and gaming within the reach of a whole new audience”

Said Mr He Shiyou, head of the terminals division at ZTE.

“It provides a world of entertainment in a single device – combining high quality and a wide range of functions for a great mobile multimedia experience.”

Can low-cost and high-quality really sit together well in the same sentence? Here are just some of the specs that will help you answer this burning question.

ZTE Grand X features

The device features a 4.3in qHD screen with a resolution of 540×960, as well as a 5MP camera at the rear and a 0.3MP camera at the front, the latter of the two facilitating video calling.

While some smartphones are set to come complete with a speedy quad-core processor, such as the Galaxy S3, the Grand X will be powered by a 1GHz nVidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor.

Storage of 4GB can be ramped up to a further 32GB thanks to a microSD card slot. Further features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and DLNA.

At a price point from £19 per month on a contract, or £189 SIM-free, the smartphone has decent specs for its low price.

But the fact that some  have called the ZTE Grand X smartphone a ‘mid-range device’, which falls flat of ZTE’s claims of a “advanced gaming smartphone”, may be enough to deter smartphone fans.
