ZTE Grand X - Pocket-lint


The ZTE Grand X has been a little bit of a struggle for us. It's a competent phone, and works reasonably as a smart device, but it's not exciting and it

Feels sturdy, barebones Android, Dolby Mobile

Touchscreen is not great, quite a dull phone, a bit too expensive

ZTE gets a lot of credit from us for providing a simple, barebones version of Android. Many users like this, and unlike early versions of the mobile OS, in its default flavour, it's pretty much feature-complete.

ZTE Grand X review


ZTE impresses with a dual-core stock Android 4.0 device for the masses

Cheap ; Pure Android 4.0 ; Dual-core Tegra 2 ; Fast browser

Plastic feel ; Low quality screen ; Average media ; Nexus clone

ZTE has big ambitions to join the likes of HTC and Samsung at the top of the Android pile, and the ZTE Grand X is the company's biggest statement of intent yet.

ZTE Grand X review


ZTE's Grand X delivers well on some levels. The combination of good specifications for less than £200 with unspoilt Android 4.0 makes it an attractive package. It will certainly play games and suits video content too. However, you should take into...

ZTE Grand X


The ZTE Grand X is a brand-new Android smartphone from the upcoming Chinese mobile maker. Typically the company has been known for its low rent handsets which cost next to nothing but this marks the start of a new era for the company in the West. The...

While we like what ZTE is trying to do with the Grand X it doesn't quite represent value for money. If you want the stock Android experience then you should go with Samsung Galaxy Nexus instead: it costs around the same now but has a larger screen and...
