2012-06-25 Xiang Xin
In the past, feature phones were only used as tools to send text messages and make phone calls. In the era of smartphones, mobile phones can do much more than that. They are entertainment platforms for surfing the Internet, playing games, and listening to music. ZTE Grand X is a smartphone that came into the spotlight at Mobile World Congress 2012.
Grand X is a stylish black mobile phone. Its smooth lines are inspired by aerodynamics of a car, and there is friendliness behind the cool appearance. The slightly raised bottom ensures a comfortable grip and also allows the two speakers near the bottom to sound better. The front cover is matte plating, and the battery cover was created using a skin-touch spray process. The grid pattern on the back cover is also novel. It is an anti-slip surface to prevent you from dropping your mobile phone if your hands are perspiring or wet. Also, it does not show up fingerprints. The phone is only 9.9 mm and weighs only 110 g, so it is easy to carry.
Grand X has a good configuration. It is equipped with Android 4 which has powerful functions and is compatible with more apps. The 4.3-inch 540 × 960 HD screen is excellent for playing games or watching videos. The light sensitivity of the screen can also be adjusted and effects are clean and clear even in strong summer lights. Operating speed is also a concern for users. This mobile phone has a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512 MB RAM, and 4 GB ROM, providing powerful support for entertainment. You do not have to worry about unresponsiveness or crashing during game play nor frame dropping or image trailing when playing HD video.
In addition to games and videos, a mobile phone camera is necessary for entertainment. With a mobile phone camera, you can capture happy moments with friends anywhere and anytime. Grand X has a 5 megapixel rear camera with auto-focus and flash and a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera. If you are going to share photos on social networking websites, you can change the photo’s colors and brightness and you can crop or apply graffiti using a photo editor.
Grand X has a 1GHz dual-core processor that scores 4436 on the Super Rabbit system test. The gaming performance of Grand X is outstanding. Grand X is perfect for running large 3D games such as Call of Duty and Asphalt Urban GT. Transitions are smooth, and the sound and visuals are fantastic. When coupled with touch feedback and gravity sensing, Grand X becomes an entertainment device.
With the spread of 3G networks and Wi-Fi, users are greatly concerned with the multimedia features of mobile phones. Running on Android 4 Grand X supports HTML5-capable browsers, which allows you to visit video sites 30% faster. In addition, Dolby technology gives an immersive sound experience.
Grand X can be preinstalled with apps according to a carrier’s needs. Moreover, Grand X has many basic built-in functions, and users can download other apps from Android Market. Grand X has 4 GB storage that can be expanded to 32 GB through MicroSD cards, and this fully satisfies all kinds of entertainment needs.
Grand X has an elegant design, high-end configuration, and supports a variety of apps. It is great value for money and reflects ZTE's focus on the young and trendy.
