ZTE Grand S – A High End, Ultrathin Flagship Phone:- The beginning of this year marked a significant period in the timeline of ZTE, a Chinese telecoms manufacturing company. The manufacturing company launched its newest flagship phone, the much anticipated ZTE Grand S. The Grand S is part of the high end Grand family line, which also include the ZTE Grand X and the Grand Era. The manufacturer is marketing it as a high end, ultrathin flagship phone.
While ZTE is not a very common and popular name in the industry of mobile phones, it is quickly making its way to be known, with its regular releases of Smartphones, including the Grand S. Before you decide on purchasing this unit though, you should first take the time to determine whether it will really live up to your standards or not. This brief but concise review will help you figure out if getting this phone is a wise decision or if it will just be a waste of your money.
At only 6.99 mm thick, the ZTE Grand S is considerably a lot thinner than many of its major competitors in the Smartphone market. It can easily be pocketed, despite its large 5-inch touchscreen display. The frame consists of polycarbonate plastic materials. It is available in a number of different colors, including yellow, pink, cyan, black, and white.
Similar to the Huawei Ascend D2 and the Sony Experia Z, the Grand S also features a 443 ppi pixel density 5-inch touch screen display. Both photos and videos looked impressive and very sharp, as the colors were vibrant. Brightness is also not a problem in low light and well lit conditions, but you it may not be as impressive if you are in an incredibly lit environment.
The ZTE Grand S sports a 13-megapixel camera, which took pictures that are reasonably impressive. The images are sharp and brightly colored. It is also paired with an LED flash on its back side and a 2-megapixel camera on its front, which good for video chats and calls. However, the front camera resolution is not that impressive, as this is already a feature in many Smartphones of the same category.
Battery Life and Performance
One pitfall of the ZTE Grand S is its battery. Since this Smartphone comes with a 1080p display, its 1,780mAH battery may not be able to power it up for that long. Its battery capacity is only roughly half of what its other major competitors are sporting, such as the Huawei Ascend D2 and the Sony Experia Z 5-inch Smartphones. Also, with this particular smartphones 4G modem, you cannot expect to get too much use out of it between charging times.
One of the best and probably most intriguing features of the ZTE Grand S is its settings orb. This omnipresent feature can be dragged around and set anywhere that you want to. It is always sitting on top of the open apps, so you can always see it. Through this app, you can access the menu, the home, the frequent apps buttons, and the back button anytime that you have the need to. This can prove to be a very useful feature.
With the ZTE Grand S being powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 CPU processor, which also runs at 1.7GHz and by a RAM of 2GB, you can expect to encounter fewer problems with its performance. Despite its downfalls, it may still be a good option for you. However, if you plan to use it for office communication, it may be wiser for you to stick with other higher end models, or better yet, get a third party phone service such as RingCentral business telephone.
