ZTE Unico LTE Pros & Cons 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.

On-paper Review score:


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).

Too heavy:

4.83 ounces is too much weight by today's standards.

Very rudimentary front camera:

We know it is just the front camera, but just a 1-megapixel selfie camera?

Slower smartphone:

A year ago, this smartphone's on-paper performance would have appeared nice, but compared to recent smartphones, the 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8930 processor with only 1GB of RAM seems a little pale.

And Now, the Pros:
