ZTE Grand X LTE hopes to be a Nexus 4 rival (it won’t)

If you like the overall specification of the LG made Google Nexus 4 but feel you can’t live without LTE then you might be tempted by the ZTE Grand X LTE, but be sure to check the specs carefully before making your decision!

Like the Google Nexus 4 and Xiaomi M2 the ZTE Grand X comes equipped with a quad-core Qualcomm S4 1.5Ghz CPU which is said to be the most powerful quad-core mobile phone chip available on the market. There is also 2GB RAM on-board too so you know the Grand X is going to be no slouch!

Gizchina News of the week

The real stand out features of the ZTE Grand X LTE are the fact the phone comes with 4G LTE support, something which both the Nexus 4 and M2 lack, and also the price which is considerably more than the other phones at $410!

Worst still the more expensive ZTE Grand X has a low resolution 540 x 960 4.3 inch screen and the 8 mega-pixel rear camera is only capable of shooting 720 video where as the Xiaomi M2 can film 1080!

I’m not entirely sure ZTE have thought the Grand X LTE through and I’m sure most customers would happily ditch LTE in favour of a lower price tag, better rear camera and higher resolution screen.

What do you guy’s think?

    I agree, sounds a stupidly overpriced phone. WTF are ZTE thinking.
    Especially when the U950 is just $160 and only lacks LTE.
    Can’t you get a portable LTE hotspot or something? Grand X needs to be a fair bit cheaper then the Nex4.
    Google just rewrote the entire phone market and everyone needs to catch up on their pricing me thinks.

    This phone uses dual core S4, not quad.
    This change the whole picture.
    Check again and correct your mistake

    Huge advantage of the Nexus 4 is always getting the latest updates while the Chinese phones almost always come with the guarantee of no updates at all.
