ZTE Unico LTE Pros And Cons Review

Picture of the ZTE Unico LTE, by ZTE

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.


Ostensibly no HDMI plug:

We're delighted that the ZTE Unico LTE can record fancy 1280 x 720 videos, but we're surprised we didn't find any sign of the Unico LTE sporting an HDMI port (which comes in handy to watch HD videos on your shiny HDTV without having to move them first to your computer).

A little bulky:

The ZTE Unico LTE is not the heaviest phone around. However, 4.83 ounces is kind of bulky.

Slower smartphone:

Not too long ago, this smartphone's processing specs would have been just fine, but by today's standards, this 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8930 processor with a RAM of only 1GB looks a little pale.



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...
