ZTE Grand S goes on sale for $771 in China

The ZTE Grnad S has finally arrived on sale in selected stores across China at the surprisingly high price of 4799 Yuan ($771).

ZTE currently have 2 brands and 2 very similar flagship phones available in China. There is the Nubia Z5 which is supposed to be the flagship phone to separate the brand from ZTE’s low-cost roots, and the ZTE Grand S.

Gizchina News of the week

Both phones offer very similar specs including quad-core Qualcomm S4 processor, 2GB RAM, 5-inch 1080 display and 13 mega-pixel camera, and both support LTE to some extent, however the Grand S has gone on sale for over $200 more than the Z5!

The Nubia Z5 can is available for 3400 Yuan ($546) for the regular white unibody version, and while the CPU isn’t running as hot as the Grand S or offers and equally thin 6.9mm profile, it does offer enough to make it a “no brainer” of a choice for those choosing between the two phones.

Which would you choose?

    For that amount, I’ll rather spend my money on a phone from a recognised company with service centers where I live.
