ZTE 3C is a $75 Snapdragon phone with pretty looks


6b1394a6gw1ex0m0n44lpj20g00g0ab0People don’t want to burn holes in their pockets when buying a phone these days, which is why more and more phone makers are investing in fast-moving, affordable devices.

ZTE’s latest in that space is the ZTE 3C, which is a 499 Yuan / $78 phone with above-average looks. It comes with a Snapdragon processor too (the 210), so if you’re wary about the entry-level MediaTeks, it should be something you’ll like.

You can’t expect blazing fast performance from the ZTE 3C, but instead what you can expect is a device that’ll get some basic work done (besides calls and texts, of course).

It comes with a 5-inch FWVGA (854 x 480p) display besides the Snapdragon 210 processor, and with that, has 1GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM and a camera combo of a 5 mega-pixel rear and a 2 mega-pixel front.

The phone runs a customised version of Android 5.1 Lollipop in Nubia UI. Dimensions of this phone are 143.5×72.9×9.45mm with a body weight of 170g.

A highlight of the ZTE 3C also happens to be the 4G LTE support it has thanks to the on-board modem of the Snapdragon 210.
