ZTE Blade A1 Pros And Cons
ZTE Blade A1 Pros
ZTE Blade A1 comes with a 5 inch HD 720p display, which is definitely not the best display, but it is a much better in terms of resolution as compared to many of the other phones selling at similar price.
ZTE Blade A1 is having a fingerprint scanner at the back which makes it one of the most affordable smartphone to have this feature. Currently in India, the Coolpad Note 3 is the most affordable devices coming with Fingerprint Scanner which is priced at Rs.8,999/- but the ZTE Blade A1 is definitely going to be priced below Coolpad Note 3.
Many smartphones coming under $100 offers 8GB of internal memory but ZTE has shifted the level, as it offers 16GB of internal memory which is expandable further upto 128GB via microSD card.
On the connectivity front, it supports 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, micro USB v2.0 and it is also having the GPS features.
This handset comes with a 13 Megapixel rear autofocus camera with LED flash whereas on the front end it features a 8 Megapixel camera, which makes this device way better in the Megapixel count as compared to the most of the smartphone coming at this price. However, being said that, the image quality does not only depends on the Megapixel count.
ZTE Blade A1 Cons
This phone is powered by a MTK MT6735, 1.3GHz Quad Core processor coupled Mali T720 GPU along with 2GB of RAM which is not a low-end specs by any means after looking at its price. But running high end games at highest quality might cause some issues.
This phone is having a single back facing speaker with tiny speaker grills which could affect the sound experience. Having said that, we still have to wait for this device to launch in India and we will try to get our hands on to this new mobile device.
