4.3-Star ZTE Unico LTE Review

LTE capability is the shining star in this Android 4.1 smartphone, it seems. Which is probably just as well, because it looks like it does not have a lot going on feature-wise. Both its dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 4.5-inch 960 x 540 TFT display are mid-range, at best, and its 5-megapixel camera may be considered low-end (but the 1-megapixel front-facer is a nice change of pace from the usual VGA ones). Also, the onboard memory is only 4GB, so there is good chance the included 8GB microSDHC card will be well-used.

Review rating:


Reasonable SAR (radiation) rating:

We've seen phones with a lower SAR rating, but 0.78 watts per kilogram of body mass is honorable, on a scale that goes from 0 to 1.60...

How do you like our way of evaluating the zte unico lte?

It features a 4G wireless data technology.

Dual CPU:

Not only does it have a 1.2GHz processor clock speed, but it also has two cores.

Very large display:

The screen is impressive: 4.5 inches and a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels means about 8.66 square inches and an image quality of at least 244.9 dots per inch (DPI)!

Cons or Not-so-great Features:

    Ostensibly no HDMI connector:

    The ZTE Unico LTE can record high-resolution (1280 x 720 pixels) video clips. Bravo! But we couldn't determine whether it had an HDMI port or not. Granted, HDMI (which lets you connect to your HDTV), is not an absolute necessity, but it seems like a desirable feature on an HD phone.

    Slightly overweight:

    We wouldn't say that the Unico LTE is a heavyweight, but 4.83 ounces may feel a little overweight.
