Outfitted with a 6-inch HD IPS screen and Gorilla Glass protection, the ZTE Lever LTE is a 4G-ready phablet-class Android. Its hardware consists of a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 2GB RAM, and a relatively generous 3200mAh battery. Camera-wise, it offers an 8-megapixel back sensor accompanied by a 2-megapixel front-facing sub-cam. The Lever LTE's 16GB internal memory can be increased by up to 32GB with its microSDHC slot. Likely available through prepaid carriers, it also comes with Bluetooth v4.0 and an M4/T4 hearing aid rating.
The LTE-enabled Nubia 5S Mini appears to be a budget model from one of ZTE's major Android lines, coming with a 4.7-inch HD display, though it retains the IGZO One-Glass-Solution technology from Sharp. Its key specs include a 13-megapixel BSI rear camera and its 5-megapixel front-facing partner -- both skirt the high-end territory. This unlocked model runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor assisted by 2GB worth of RAM. It also comes with a 16GB internal memory expandable to up to 32GB. The Nubia 5S Mini is powered by a 2000mAh battery.
Question #1: Should it be a smartphone or not?
ZTE partners with AT&T over the Z432, a feature phone that sports a 2.4-inch TFT LCD screen, a full QWERTY keyboard (4 rows) and a 2-megapixel camera. Among its typical feature phone perks (Bluetooth, mobile web, MP3 player) are preloaded AT&T apps, such as their Navigator and Address Book. It also comes with AT&T's Device Help function, which provides a step-by-step tutorial for all the phone's functions via the preinstalled browser. The Z432 runs on a 900mAh battery and a single-core Qualcomm processor.
The smart viewer mode (displays two apps at the same time) and Dolby Digital Plus technology give this 5.7-inch Android phablet a boost, but the rest of its specs are apparently stuck in the middle sphere. It is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor, sports a 1280 x 720 IPS display and an 8-megapixel camera (joined by a 1-megapixel front-facer), and it comes with a 3200mAh battery, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage memory.
This super-slim device is only 6.9mm thick, which makes it one of the thinnest quad-core Android smartphones. ZTE somehow managed to squeeze in a full HD 5-inch display, 4G LTE, a 2GB RAM, and even a MicroSD card slot into such a sleek body. It can also shoot 1080p HD videos on both the 13-megapixel main and 2-megapixel front-facing cameras.
ZTE expands their phablet roster with the 5.7-inch ZMax. Among its selling points are the scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3 frame and the Dolby Digital DM3+ sound enhancement technology. It also comes with a pretty hefty 3400mAh battery that matches its 1.2GHz quad-core engine and 2GB RAM. Its internal memory caps off at 16GB and supports up to 32GB of expansion via microSD. Just like most phablets released in 2014, the ZMax also comes with several LTE (4G) network bands. Other features include an 8-megapixel rear camera with a 1.6-megapixel partner up front.
Despite being a downgraded version of the Nubia Z5S (as hinted by its name), we could still see the Mini grabbing a high-end seat with the IGZO display technology - the same innovation that makes the iPad Air lighter and thinner. It has the same on-board storage at 16GB (though a 32GB version is likely to be released as well), and supports microSD expansion this time around. Also likely to serve ZTE fans well are the 1.7GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and 13-megapixel camera. A 5-megapixel selfie camera also sits atop its 4.7-inch HD (312ppi) touch display.
At 3.5 inches, the starter-class ZTE Zinger sports a lone 2-megapixel VGA-recording camera, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and 512MB worth of RAM. Its specs list also includes a 4GB expandable internal memory with support for up to 32GB of extra storage -- a typical memory offering for an entry-level model. It is powered by a 1500mAh battery and also offers Bluetooth v4.0, A-GPS and SUPL navigation, and 3G mobile web browsing. Its M3/T4 hearing aid rating suggests that it targets a rather elder demographic looking to get a taste of the Android platform.
The ZTE Concord II is a leap from the 2012 Concord's low-tech feature set. It caters to users who are looking to upgrade to 4G speeds, but don´t want to spend hundreds of dollars just yet. It sports a better camera at 5-megapixels, a 2-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm engine and even doubles up RAM capacity to 1GB. The OS update as well as better color technology (First Concord model: 256K, second: 16.7M) also add to its features, placing it among other mid-level Android smartphones.
The ZTE Supreme (also called ZTE Vital) is a mid-range smartphone powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Krait processor running on Android Jelly bean 4.1 (although Sprint's version is said to run on 4.2 already). It is fitted with a 2500mAh Lithium-ion battery that has a advertised standby time of up to 11 days and a talk-time of 15 hours. This smartphone is equipped with a main rear-facing 13-megapixel and a front-facing 1-megapixel camera, the main one is capable of recording full HD (1920×1080 pixels) videos. The Supreme also comes with a pre-installed version of Real Racing 3 by EA.
