With the quad-core ZTE Era seemingly taking a temporary backseat, ZTE introduced the company’s next best thing last week, the Grand X. At one point, it was hailed as the “world’s most advanced gaming smartphone”, but a quick look at the specs reveals otherwise. The Grand X is more worthy of being named as yesteryear’s flagship phone. Like many of ZTE’s phones, however, the Grand X does have the advantage of being priced aggressively.
UK’s Phones 4U is giving away the ZTE Grand X for free, as long as you’re willing to pay £20.50 a month for the next two years. The monthly plan comes with free 600 minutes and 3000 texts, as well as 100MB of free data allowance. Paying £26 will triple the free minutes and gets you 250MB data.
Folks in the UK who aren’t looking for the latest and greatest of Android variety will find the Grand X to be a good alternative. And since that the Grand X uses a dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, you’ll be granted entrance to NVIDIA’s Tegra Zone gaming portal for some THD gaming apps.
Other specs of the ZTE Grand X include a 4.3-inch qHD display, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 5MP rear camera, 0.3MP front-facing camera, 1,650mAH battery, and a pure stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich experience.
