ZTE Iceberg is an iPhone X Copycat With 2 Notches!

ZTE has created a brand new phone being called Iceberg that comes with 2 notches. As you perhaps already know Apple started this trend with the iPhone X. Now Android companies are copying Apple just as they did when Apple introduced the dual rear camera on the iPhone 7 Plus.

At least this design is a bit more innovative where they did that notch design on both sides! Very creative I have to say. It looks like a very beautiful phone when it comes to design. On the back side it comes with a rear centred fingerprint sensor. Best located to put it if you ask me. Another thing that ZTE did was to put a speaker in each notch. It really has a nice aesthetic symmetry to it so it won an award.

This phone comes with a glass design on front and back. Which makes the name Iceberg to make sense. This is great for winning design awards but if we are going to be honest it would be best to use plastic or metal unibody for durability. Apple started the glass phone trend with the iPhone 4. The problem with it is that it very easily breaks.

On each corner you can see transparent glass connecting the front and back to create even more beauty. I have to say that it was very creative move. At the moment we don’t know the specs on this phone but we know that it will be a global launch of it in many regions. Hopefully it has specs that are similar to iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9. We have been seeing a big trend of Beauty designed phones be released but with horrible internal specs. I hope ZTE put some attention to the specs. Is this perhaps the most beautiful design for 2018? I think that it may be!

You can see on the back side that it comes with a dual rear camera. Something that is very popular these days. I really love how the all-screen display on the front is rounded in the corners. Yes the Galaxy S8 display is also that but this one has no bezels so it creates an even more amazing effect!

ZTE Blade A2S New Smartphone!

ZTE Blade A2S is a new phone from ZTE that comes with a bit smaller screen than what we usually have seen 2017. Many new phones this year has had at least 5.5” display. This phone comes with just a 5.2” display.

Main specs: Fingerprint, 5.2” display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB Internal storage, MT6753 Octa-core processor, 4G Connectivity, 128GB TF card support, Fast Fingerprint ID, Metal body, 2.5D Curved Design and 13MP Rear Camera!

Blade A2S looks a little bit like Huawei Mate 9 on the back design. It comes with a 5MP front facing selfie camera. You can insert two Nano SIM cards perfect for a vacation.

The phone is running on Android 6.0 and the processor is clocked at 1.3GHz. I don’t see the major selling point with this smartphone when you can get a Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A for just a little higher price.

It has a pretty slim thickness just 7.5mm and the weight is 145 grams. The battery inside packs 2540mAh battery which is not the best I have seen many phones for around this price that comes with 3000mAh battery installed. You can’t remove the battery.

It’s nice that it packs a metal build instead of plastic and also good how it comes with a 3.5mm earphone jack. Something many new phones doesn’t have pre-installed. Two colours are available Gold and Gray.

Blade A2S seem to have a home button installed but it doesn’t look like you can push it down as a hardware button so probably just a glass button. The front design reminds me about iPhone 4S but without a home button. The gold edition definitely looks the best out of the two. But I still feel like it’s something missing here to make you truly wanna invest and buy the phone.

ZTE Nubia N1 Lite Sleek Smartphone!

ZTE Nubia N1 Lite is a tiny little budget smartphone. Nubia got cool high-end devices but just as Samsung they also create low-end smartphones.

Main specs on N1 Lite: 5.5 inch 1280×720 resolution Display, Fingerprint reader below rear camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB Internal storage, MTK6737 Quad-core processor, 4G, 13MP rear camera + 8MP front camera, 3000mAh Battery and Triple card slots for 2 SIM cards or 1 SIM card + 1 microSD card up to 128GB.

The most striking thing for me with Nubia N1 Lite is it’s beautiful design. And that it comes at a similar price you could get UHANS Note 4 makes it even better. It has a golden ring around fingerprint reader and red ring around rear camera, you can also see gold ring around the border of the smartphone. All these small details shows that ZTE truly cares about creating a well designed phone for an affordable price.

On the bottom of the display you get three keys Return, Home and Menu. On right side of phone you get Volume Keys and Power Button. The speaker is located at the back on the bottom. Which might not be the best placement especially if you put your phone down.

This phone comes with Mali-T720 GPU so you will probably be able to get some great gaming out of this device. You can see they saved in on internal storage and RAM when building this device. You may want to look at other options with 3GB or 4GB RAM. But then you usually won’t get the beautiful Nubia design.

The shell material is in plastic so will feel like an old Samsung phone. You get Android 6.0 installed. The processor comes with 4x A53 cores. And yes if you truly want more memory for games then you can just buy an extended card. This phone gets almost 29,000 in AnTuTu benchmark version 6.3.5.

They don’t offer you a skin on top of Android it looks like it comes with vanilla version. But again it’s not running on latest Android 7.0. But I think most people won’t worry too much about that. The phone reminds me a little bit a Meizu designed phones.

ZTE Nubia Z17 Well Designed Cheap High-end Phone!

ZTE Nubia Z17 is a super phone when it comes to specs! This might actually be the best thing you may be able to get in 2017.

Specs: 5.5 Inch 1920×1080 403ppi display, 4G LTE, 6GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, Dual rear camera 23.0MP + 12.0MP, Snapdragon 835 Octa-core processor clocked at 2.45GHz 64-Bit, Adreno 540 GPU, Android 7.1 Nougat, NFC, Fast Charge QC4+, Bass Sound and Black colour.

They do have different variants for Nubia Z17 like you can max one out with 8GB of RAM and 128GB. The UI that you will get is called Nubia UI 5.0 that is based on Android 7.1. First phone with Quick Charge 4+ is also pretty cool! Also the front camera is in high resolution 16.0MP.

The display is not an iPhone X/Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 all-screen type. But it does have genuine bezel-less display on the sides. The phone is built in a full metal unibody design. The phone also has some minor protection against water like accident like splash and rain.

The specs on the camera more in detail are 2X Dual Zoom, Dual Pixel, 1.4um Large Pixel, f/1.8 large aperture and large CMOS. The camera has a red border around for adding a touch of elegance. You have cool effects when taking a selfie with front snapper AI tech for detect faces, bokeh blur effect and customized scene.

With the main camera it comes with a new generation image engine called NeoVision 7.0 that is suppose to help you take better professional photos. It has things like: Portrait Mode, Stereo Camera, Times Camera and 3.0 E- aperture.

The battery is 3200mAh and with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ you can charge 20% faster than with Quick Charge 3.0. In 25 minutes you can charge the Nubia up to 50% which is amazing!

Another thing I find with Nubia Z17 is on the back it looks more premium than iPhone X. It’s available in various designs some that change the fingerprint border colour and logo colour. Which really makes it look premium.

Especially the variant that comes with gold border and logo + red border around camera and black colour on back. I like how the phone doesn’t use glass back which usually breaks. 7.6mm thin and 173 grams in weight which is good specs.
