#1. The ZTE Warp 4G
This upgraded version of the ZTE Warp boasts of a faster processor (1.2GHz), longer battery life (12 hours of talk-time), bigger internal memory (8GB) and a better signal coverage by utilizing 4G technology. Handling the new Warp 4G will be very similar to the older one since this Android smartphone still sports nearly the same dimensions (5.2" x 2.6" x 0.4"). The 4.5-inch display is based on the IPS technology.

#3. The ZTE Engage LT
The ZTE Engage LT is the downgraded version of the ZTE Engage. They both have a 4-inch touchscreen and a 1900mAh battery, but the processor and the camera were throttled down to 1GHz and 3.2-megapixel (from 1.4GHz and 8-megapixel). Like its big brother, the Engage LT also focuses on music with its Dolby Mobile-enhanced SRS WOW HD sound technology and the Muve Music download application. A 4GB Sandisk MicroSD card is included in the package.
#4. The ZTE Sonata 4G
ZTE trumpets The Sonata 4G´s dual-core Qualcomm MSM8230 processor that runs at a comparatively zippy 1.4GHz and is joined by a 1GB RAM. The Android 4.1.2 smartphone also boasts a 4-inch 800 x 480 TFT display (with 233ppi pixel density), a 5-megapixel camera that takes 1280 x 720 videos (but does not have a secondary camera), a 1785mAh battery that can reportedly last for 312 hours (13 days) on standby, and a 4GB memory.
#5. The ZTE Blade V
The quad-core 1.2GHz ZTE Blade V does not demand top dollar (or in this case, pound) and appears to deliver accordingly. It features a 4-inch WVGA screen with 233ppi pixel density, a 5-megapixel camera that works with a VGA front-facing camera, a 512MB RAM, and a 4GB native memory that is expandable to 32GB. It also comes with a 1800mAh battery that has a listed talk time of 240 minutes or four hours.
#6. The ZTE Nubia 5
Targeting the unlocked market, ZTE´s quad-core 1.5GHz Android 4.1 smartphone is outfitted in a 5-inch 1080p IPS screen with a surprisingly-high pixel density of 443ppi and sports a 5-element Konica-Minolta lens (said to be scratch-resistant) in its 13-megapixel camera. It uses Dolby Digital Plus technology, has quite a low SAR rating of 0.225, and comes with 2GB of RAM and a 2300mAh battery. On the other hand, its 16GB storage memory cannot be expanded and it does not have LTE capability, but it supports HSPA+, which is considered as 3.5G technology.
#7. The ZTE Overture
The ZTE Overture is a 1.2GHz dual-core Android 4.1 smartphone that comes from the prepaid sector, and predictably bears modest features. For starters, it is outfitted in a 4-inch TFT screen with 800 x 480-pixel resolution. It also packs a decent 5-megapixel camera, a 1GB RAM, and a 4GB storage memory. Its 1780mAh battery can last for 300 hours or 12.5 days on standby.
#8. The ZTE Source
The ZTE Source is a modest smartphone with respectable multimedia features: it uses SRS Enhanced Sound technology, which should work well with Muve Music, Cricket´s music download service that is integrated into its 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. Its 5-megapixel camera has a backside-illuminated sensor (a feature normally seen in more high-end smart camera phones), and it offers high-definition (720p) video recording. Also noteworthy is its above-average talk time (as claimed) of 912 minutes.
#9. The ZTE Solar
Despite its name, the ZTE Solar does not seem to offer anything new under the sun. It is fitted with a 4.5-inch WVGA display, is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor and 768MB of RAM, and runs on Android 4.1. It also has a 5-megapixel camera, a 4GB memory, and a 2070mAh battery that can last up to 360 hours or 15 days on standby. It cannot be turned into a mobile hotspot though, and it does not sport a front-facing camera, so common to today's phones.
#10. The ZTE Radiant
AT&T partners up with ZTE to bring another basic Android Jelly Bean smartphone in the 4-inch ZTE Radiant. It sports a 5-megapixel camera, but sadly no front-facing companion. The mentioned snapper is capable of 720p video recording. The 1.4GHz processor under its casing runs on two cores, which might give it a slight edge over other low-tech models, at least in terms of multitasking. It also has M3 and T4 hearing aid ratings to add to its arsenal. Even though its 1GB RAM is a tad better compared to others phones (512MB, 768MB), the Radiant halves the typical 4GB memory capacity offered by most models within its price range.
