Nowadays, technology advance every day, making it more difficult to find a low-cost device. Thankfully, ZTE comes with some really tempting offers, the ZTE Speed. It costs less than 100 dollars, an affordable price for everyone who wants to buy a smartphone.
However, people should know that at this price, the phone’s quality is not really great. Despite its name, the phone’s quad-core processor lags at every simple task you want to do. It comes with a 5-megapixel camera that makes not such great photos, and its display may require a few repetitive taps to respond. Well, these are the risks that people take when they opt for a low-end phone. However, for phone calls, text messages and surfing the internet once in a while, ZTE Speed is a great choice, due to its low-cost price.
ZTE Speed measures 2.6 inches wide, 5.3 inches tall and weighs only 4.8 ounces. It is very comfortable to hold in hand and it can be easily maneuvered with one hand. It has a 4.5-inch LCD display with 960×540-pixel resolution; this means that the image and text don’t look quite crisp and sharp. It doesn’t require a close look to spot pixelated or blurry edges around letters. On the left edge of the phone it is located a Micro-USB port for charging, on the top of the device is a sleep/power button and a 3.5mm headphone jack and to the right is the volume button. The keys are raised above the surface, this means that they are easy to be find with your fingers. The 5-megapixel camera that is located on the back of the phone features a flash and at the bottom right corner are the audio speakers.
ZTE Speed runs an Android 4.4.4 KitKat and features a number of Google services, such as Drive, Google Plus, Chrome Web browser, Gmail, YouTube, Hangouts, Maps and Search. However, there are other preloaded apps that users can find on the phone, such as Amazon, PlayPhone, TouchPal, NBA Game Time, Uber and Next Radio.
100 dollars for an off-contract smartphone is a great deal, especially for a 4G LTE device.
