Better SoCs don't use more space. Literally all they do is putting in a much smaller battery, so the phone can be 1mm thinner. That's BS.
seeing these horrible black bezels making the phone look "bezel less".
It just makes it looks ugly,what is this some asian smartphones manufactures companies trend?

So in order to maintain the thin bezels that customers expect from a flagship they need to reduce battery size.
The competition is increasingly tighter and harder, be it in the flagships or low ends.
Charles Darwin theory applies, the natural selection.
Only the strongest will survive.
Just launching new smartphones every month makes no sense. Most of the companies (budget smartphone department) fail to implement/incorporate even the basic quality criteria like "Good design", "Good in call audio quality at both ends", "Front faring Stereo Speakers", "Bright screen", "Solid build quality", "quality of the materials used", "least customization of stock android" etc.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2016It has no chance againt redmi note 3 or many othersredmi note 3 and this are not in the same category that is a bad comparison on your part, the redmi 3 would be a better comparison
this has removable battery unlike redmi 3.
just with weaker SoC, less ram, less internal storage, also less camera.
I still can't understand. Every manufacturer is capable of making a 5" phone, with decent design and good, 4000 mAh battery, bo no one can actually make a flagship including those? Every smartphone with 5" screen and 4k mAh battery is at most mid-ranger. I call that BS.
Wow. Very affordable phone with good specs.. Good Job ZTE! =)
