Tap on the back for ZTE for this one

people just never stops, never fails to see the bad things (first) before highlighting the good ones
6.9 for a 5 inch?

price will definitely cheaper compare to other top brands.
nowadays, having two phones is a must. One that is pocketable, and one that you have to use to see things in a bigger scale (without getting your 10 inch tablet/ or worse, laptop

if the price is very much reasonable, will get this one as to back up my BB

"16GB of on-board storage"

Are memory chips still so expensive? By now I'd expect manufacturers to use 64GB as standard for an internal memory.

16GB is so 2009.

5" Full HD screen
Quad Core CPU
2GB RAM
16GB storage... WTF!?

I would trade 2mm thicker if by then they can increase the juice to 2,295 mAh any day :)
29% thicker for battery life! Is that too hard for these Chinese manufacturer to comprehend? By this I mean Zte, Huawei and off course, HTC!!?
