85% Review ZTE Grand Memo LTE Smartphone | Notebookcheck
A giant from China. With a panel diagonal of 5.7-inches ZTE follows the trend of ever bigger smartphones. A strong SoC, a camera with a 13 MP sensor and LTE support will make the device a hit - and all of this for a low price. Find out what the downsides are in our test review.

ZTE Grand S Flex

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.

50% ZTE Grand S Pro
Source: Laptop Mag English
For $100 plus a two-year contract, U.S. Cellular has better options than the ZTE Grand S Pro. While its graphic performance and display are impressive, the short battery life, deceptive camera and outdated version of Android give us pause. We would be more inclined to spend $100 more for the Samsung Galaxy S5 or save $50 and buy the Apple iPhone 5S. Either way, you'll get a better camera and similar performance.

0.16 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.

0.2 kg:


75.17%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
