Looking for an affordable and reliable middle-of-the-road phone, Grand X is a popular option. It has a decent camera of 5-megapixel, a solid call quality and a competitive price. With only 100 dollars off-contract price tag on Cricket Wireless, this phone sounds very attractive. However, for this price, ZTE had to make some sacrifices, so it runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and the dual-core processor runs a little slow.
ZTE Grand X also has some serious competitors on this price market, including Motorola Moto G and HTC Desire 510. They offer a faster and smoother experience for the same price as Grand X.
With almost the same look as ZTE Grand S Pro, this smartphone features some really sport curved edges, a matte battery door and smooth rounded corners. Its design adds a subtle premium touch though. It is 5.7 inches tall and 2.87 inches wide and also very slim, with a 0.37-inch profile. However, with these kind of measures, you don’t expect to sit comfortable into your jean pockets and it is also a little beat heavy, having 6.06 ounces. The good thing is that you can easily maneuver the phone with one hand.
On the left of the Grand X, you will find a volume rocker and a Micro-USB, on top it is situated a 3.5 mm headphone jack, while on the right side is a sleep/power button. The buttons are easy to feel or to press, due to their slightly bulge from the surface. On the back you will have a 5-megapixel camera lens accompanied by a flash, which are placed on a glossy black oval finish. If you remove the black place, you will find a SIMD card, a microSD card and of course, its removable 2,300mAh battery. You can also expand its memory to 32GB.
ZTE Grand X has a 5-inch display, with a low 960×520-pixel resolution. It is a pity that they did not opt for Android 5.0 Lollipop, which has already been released by Google, but you can operate your standard Google apps, like Gmail, Chrome, Hangouts, YouTube or Play Store, with no problems.
