ZTE has been trying hard to establish its name among the major phone manufacturers. With the ZTE Grand S Flex, it might very well do so. This mid-range phone is a little fatter than its predecessor but at 6.9 mm thick, few will even notice it and fewer will mind. The bulkier size is a price to pay for the larger battery it houses. The 2300 mAh battery is able to last for 2 days with casual usage.

The 5 inch screen comes with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels, which is not full HD but is still pretty clear in its own right. The 294 ppi is rather decent, although not the best. The ZTE Grand S Flex is powered by a dual core 1.2 GHz processor with 1 GB of RAM. Although this specification is a minor downgrade from its predecessor, the performance of the device is not affected too badly. Unfortunately, it does not come with a micro SD card slot, so users have to stick with the 16 GB internal memory.

All in all, the ZTE Grand S Flex is a cheaper version of more expensive ZTE models that sacrifices processing power and display for more functionality with a longer lasting battery.

Qualcomm Adreno 305: Integrated mid-range graphics card in the Snapdragon 400 and S4 Plus SoCs that supports OpenGL ES 3.0 and features unified shaders.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

S4 Plus MSM8930: High-end dual-core Krait based SoC that includes a Adreno 305 GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

5.0": » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

78.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
