The ZTE Grand Memo is a smartphone developed by the Chinese company ZTE that was officially launched in mid-year 2013. It is a terminal that incorporates a significantly larger screen 5.7 inch s, and inside we find a processor quad core that runs at a clock speed of 1.5 GHz with a memory RAM with 2 gigabytes of capacity. Then we will take a thorough look at the user experience provided by this terminal in the version LTE (i.e. the version that adds support connectivity ultra-fast 4G Internet). Let’s see if it’s worth buying and, above all, let’s look also offering all the performance specifications in practice.
The front of the ZTE Grand Memo LTE offers modern design geared to what we might expect from a modern smartphone. To maximize the size of the screen, ZTE has decided to place the operating system touch buttons at the bottom of the mobile in the form of buttons integrated in the housing. The unlock button on the screen at the top of the phone while the sound button is located on the right side of the terminal. The screen size is set to the 5.7 inch, offers a resolution of 1.280 x 720 pixels. Measurements of ZTE Grand Memo LTE reach 159.9 x 82.6 x 8.5 mm.
Perhaps one of the biggest drawbacks that can be attributed to the screen in ZTE Grand Memo is the absence of a control rod (within the notification menu) that allows us to regulate the retail display lighting. Only at our disposal a button that lets you choose from three pre-set lighting modes and an automatic mode that controls the lighting depending on the environment in which the display is located.
But in the back of the ZTE Grand Memo we find a completely different picture. While we are used to that large manufacturers employing plastic as main material for the casings of mobile phones, in this case ZTE has not successful in choosing quality plastic that we are at the back of the ZTE Grand Memo. The back cover is quite strange to the touch, and also messes with relative ease by little that we support our fingers on the back of the phone. The only positive aspect of this case could be that, due to its elasticity, it may be more resistant to falls compared to the conventional case.
The main chamber of the ZTE Grand Memo LTE incorporates a sensor of 13 megapixels and comes with a flash to help us improve the lighting in the photographs taken at night. This camera allows you to take pictures with a resolution up to 4,128 x 3,096 pixels, while videos you take with mobile reach a speed of 30 frames per second and a resolution of 1,080 pixels.
The quality of the photographs taken during the day is interesting considering the price range in which you will find this phone. To add some customization to snapshots have an application for the camera in which we find options such as Burst Mode, Mode Smile Detection mode or Panorama (i.e., panoramic photographs).
Where it really bugs camera they suggest ZTE Grand Memo LTE is in the photographs taken in environments with low lighting or artificial lighting. It seems that the camera of this terminal directly associates these environments to a scenario in which it is necessary to use the LED flash, but we can fix this by disabling the flash detail from the setup menu of the camera. To its credit it must be said that, while we are focusing a photograph in a dark environment, the LED flash lights for a few seconds to show how photography will be using the help of illumination. Regarding the front camera, the sensor with the series, we meet is 1 megapixel.
Built-series processor ZTE Grand Memo LTE is quad core, answers to the name of APQ8064T and operates at a clock speed of 1.5 GHz. Alongside this we also have a memory processor, RAM with a capacity of 2 gigabytes. We translated into performance, we are facing technical specifications that provide good fluidity when to use the terminal for both everyday tasks (surfing the Internet, take pictures, etc.) to more complex tasks (displaying presentations, video calls, etc.).
The internal storage capacity is 16 gigabytes (of which we have at our disposal about 10 gigabytes) and can also extend this capability through external memory card microSD of up to 32 gigabytes. The slot for external memory card is located to one side of the terminal and offers a simple and easy to insert and remove the card without turning off mobile access.
The operating system that we installed as standard on this phone is Android in its version of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. This is a rather old version considering that the vast majority of smartphones has already come standard with the version of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but still this is a operating system that responds well to the needs you may have any user ( download and install applications, connect the terminal to the computer to transfer files, etc.).
Applications installed by default in the ZTE Grand Memo LTE allow us to begin to use the phone without having to download any additional applications. Besides the usual applications such terminals (browser Chrome, Email, FM Radio, etc.) also will have from other popular applications such as Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and Google Maps.
