CES on the first day, a total of two phones released.Huawei Ascend Mate and ZTE Grand S.We get our hands on the ZTE Grand S, the thinnest 5-inch full HD phone to hit CES 2013 – but is it any great? Renders nevertheless did quite tiny to accomplish using the striking design of ZTE’s latest flagship justice. Someplace in between a Nokia Lumia 920 plus a HTC one X, the ZTE Grand X sits quite it is a quad-core specs and complete 1080p display, not to mention a 13-megapixel rear facing camera and on board.
But let’s kick items of using the ZTE Grand S design – great grief it really is thin. The 6.9mm girth is really a full millimetre skinnier than the Sony Xperia Z. having a 5-inch display footprint. There’s no denying this really is an ample phone. This ampleness is disguised to great impact by its light weighting plus a natural fit in the hand by way of.
The plastic body is dense and tends to dispel a number of our issues about this phone becoming too thin. There’s a slight raise surrounding the camera mounts that is surrounded by ’3D Glass’, although this adds practically nothing to the jaw dropping thickness, or should we say thinness.
The LCD display packs a 1080p resolution and LCD technology. Without having the likes of Sony’s Mobile Bravia Engine two or their OptiContrast, it’ll take a side by sides to view whether or not it manages to compete using the Xperia Z, however our 1st impressions were that clarity is blinding, though brightness may be a lot more so.
Inside the phone sits Android 4.1.2, Jelly Bean. Not the newest version but neither is it shamefully out of date. ZTE have gone that added mile and re drawn their user interface to create the entire telephone feels completely distinct to something we’ve used prior to. Probably the most striking interface element is a floating on-screen back button on the left side of the beautiful display. This has some quite nifty functionality. So make sure to have a look at the video below to get a complete demonstration.
Jelly Bean on the ZTE Grand S is powered along by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.7GHz too as 2GB of RAM. With 16GB of internal memory, the flagship also features a microSD card slot producing it best for movie hoarders and gamers alike. Perhaps one of the most clear region it falls behind Sony’s Xperia Z is its lack of water and dust resistance, at the very least on paper.
