ZTE Grand X 4 Review & Pros And Cons

Picture of the ZTE Grand X 4, by ZTE

- Analysis by KJ David

ZTE's Grand X 4, initially carried by Cricket Wireless, is a health-oriented mid-ranger whose biggest con is its 5.5-inch HD-only (720p) screen , since several similar phablets sport Full HD (1080p) displays in comparison. Also, it opts for a 1.4GHz quad-core processor coupled with a 2GB RAM, while some of its mid-tier rivals run on slightly-faster (around 1.5GHz to 1.7GHz) eight-core chips.

As for its pros, the Grand X 4 features a fingerprint scanner for quick-launching apps and security alongside the Argus suite of health apps , which includes a heart rate sensor, a pedometer, and a glucose level monitor. Additionally, it features the AskMD app for analyzing symptoms and connecting you to the appropriate local physician. Joining its specs are a 3140mAh QC1.0 battery , a 13-megapixel FHD-video camera , and the Dolby Audio sound system .

With a Gorilla Glass 3 display finish and 16GB of memory rounding out its pros and cons, the ZTE Grand X 4 calls out to users looking for a middle-class Android that puts user health and wellness in top priority.

Reasonable radiation:

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...

Quad processor:

Not only does it have a 1.4GHz processor clock speed, it also features 4 CPU cores.

Very large screen:

The screen is larger than usual, making it a phablet: 5.5 inches and a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels means about 12.93 square inches and an image quality of at least 267.22 dots per inch (DPI)!

High-resolution (13-megapixel) camera:

It features an advanced built-in camera (13-megapixel)

Average front cam:

The selfie cam resolution seems just about average.


Ostensibly no HDMI connector:

It's all well and good that the ZTE Grand X 4 can record high-resolution 1920 x 1080 videos, but we were disappointed not to find any evidence of the Grand X 4 featuring an HDMI port (which is convenient to watch HD videos on your shiny HDTV.)

We were unable to find informatiion about its weight...

Unknown weight:

It's frustrating that we could not find its weight information.
