ZTE has unveiled its new phablet at CES 2015. It is called the Grand X Max+ for Cricket Wireless and it is an upgrade from the original Grand X Max. Now, this phone comes with great improvements in terms of display, featuring an HD display and LTE. At the first site, you will think that apart from the display improvements, there is nothing different compared to the original Grand X. But, once you spend some time with the new device, you will start to appreciate the phone’s steady performance and the solid user experience.
You will certainly start to love its capable cameras and the responsive 6-inch display. One of the greatest things about Grand X Max+ is that it is really affordable. You will find this device at the cost of 200 dollars, the prepaid version. Yes, it is a terrific cost when you think that all the high-end phablets cost upward of 500 dollars, off-contract. Of course, Grand X Max+ has some modest specs, but if you are looking for a big-screen handset, without spending a fortune on it, this is the right product.
Looking at its design, you will not see major improvements, compared with its predecessor. The Grand X Max+ features a great 6-inch touchscreen with a 1,280×720-pixel resolution. You will be able to easily use it under sunlight due to its HD display. Looks like ZTE hit the jack pot with this screen. It is responsive, it has a wide viewing angle and it is sharp. The phablet measures 6.38 inches tall, 0.31-inch thick and 3.27 inches wide. It will be a little difficult to use it with one hand and uncomfortable to hold, but when you were in search for a big screen phone, you already knew that.
ZTE Grand X Max+ features a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, a 3,200mAh battery, that sounds good, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, but it can be expanded to 32GB with a SIM card. The cameras are pretty great, it has a rear-facing 13-megapixel camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Another great improvement compared with its predecessor is the 4G LTE connectivity.
