You can get the ZTE Grand S Lite from Chinavasion for about 230 dollars, far less than other competing smartphones with similar specifications.
The ZTE Grand S Lite won the iF International Design award, and you can probably see why. This super slim and sleek device really catches your eye. A simple design with white and black counterparts that meet to create a stunning single form device. ZTE branding is subtle, while the 5 inch display is a knock out with its full HD resolution and strong gorilla glass. The ZTE Grand S Lite beat out over 4000 entries from over 50 countries to win the iF international design aware. It has been said to represent a breakthrough in traditional design concepts. With an ultra slim body, it has become known for this trait, measuring in at only6.9mm thin.
The ZTE Grand S Lite has a 5 inch, full high definition display made from gorilla glass technology. The display on the ZTE is tough enough to survive general usage, but sensitive enough to register each touch with its 10 point multitouch display. This top notch display will let you view all your photos, movies and games on in full high definition at a resolution of 1920 x 1080.
The ZTE Grand S Lite features an excellent 13 megapixel rear camera. This provides super high resolution images that look fantastic on the 5 inch HD display and even better when printed. The ZTE Grand S Lite also features a 2 megapixel front end camera. This tends to be a little on the low size compared to other models now offering up to 8 megapixels for the front camera alone, but this should only be a worry if you are into high resolution selfies. Lets be honest, not everyone looks great in such high resolutions.
The ZTE Grand S Lite offers a range of connectivity options, but lacks NFC and 4G. This is okay considering the low price tag of the device and is really to be expected. The Grand S Lite is a dual sim smartphone, meaning you can operate two separate phone numbers in the one device. This is particularly handy for business owners who like to keep their personal and business lives separate, but don’t want to carry around two phones.
The Grand S Lite also offers wireless connectivity, with wireless N technology for super fast wireless speeds. You can also use this device as a hotspot, letting you share your 3G connection with other devices. Other forms of connectivity also include bluetooth and GPS, each of which are built in.
This high quality device features a super fast quad core processor, the MT6589. This quad core processor reaches speeds up to 1.5GHz. Combine this with 2GB of ram and you have one super fast, multitasking power house. Considering the slimness of the device, it actually runs quite flawlessly. Apps open up quickly, multitasking is handled exceptionally and there is very little lag when a lot of applications are open.
