Reviews for the ZTE Blade S6 Plus

80% ZTE Blade S6 Plus review: An Android Lollipop phablet with some sweet specs
Source: PC Advisor English
The ZTE Blade S6 Plus is a nice phablet for £200, but it doesn't offer enough to make it worth an extra £50 on top of the standard model, which already has a large 5in screen. In comparison to that phone it's lost some of the features we liked, and despite having a larger battery runtime still isn't great. If you're looking for a 5.5in phablet at £200, our money would be on the Kingzone Z1.

Model: In this modern age, where smartphones come with all sorts of fancy additives and features, one might struggle to find a fuss free but practical phone that gives users easy usability but comes with a reasonable price tag. In steps the ZTE Blade S6 Plus. The external design of this smartphone may not look very original, as it bears a strong resemblance to many generic boxy designs. However, one must not judge its by appearances alone. IPS LCD display screen measures 5.5 inches with a 720p resolution and a pixel density of 267 ppi. The IPS technology is especially crucial for color vibrancy, brightness and viewing angles.

As to the hardware in this phone, we start with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa core processor with a clock rate of 1.5 GHz. This is paired with an Adreno 405 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. The octa core processor and the other equally impressive hardware ensure that the smartphone responds rapidly and efficiently with no hint of a lag. Additionally there is a 16 GB built-in storage which can be expanded by up to 32 GB with a microSD card. The memory is partitioned: a 4.29 GB area for the system function, a 3.87 GB area for apps and the remaining 7.83 GB for various user data and entertainment.

Qualcomm Adreno 405: Integrated graphics card for ARM based SoCs. Depending on the used SoC the clock rate is around 500 MHz and features 48 unified shaders. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
