First Look: Shining a spotlight on the ZTE Director

1:06 /

The ZTE Director is a 3G entry-level device from U.S. Cellular that features a 3.5-inch touch screen, Android 4.0, and a 3-megapixel camera.

-Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET. And today we're gonna take a quick look at the ZTE Director from U.S. Cellular. This entry level handset sports a 3.5-inch HVGA touch screen, runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and is equipped with a one gigahertz Qualcomm processor inside. The phone's powered by a 1.5 ampere-hour battery which roughly gives you about 6 hours of reported usage time. The 3G device comes pre-loaded with a number of Amazon apps like Audible, and you also get Slacker Radio. Though there is no front facing camera, you do get a 3-megapixel camera on the back with a flash. You can also launch the camera by pressing the shortcut hard key here on the right edge. Additional features include Bluetooth 3.0, 4 gigs of onboard memory and 512 megs of RAM. Now if you're interested in the handset, it'll only cost you about 1 penny if you sign a 2-year contract. But if you're more of the prepaid route, it'll cost about $100. Again I'm Lynn and this is the U.S. Cellular's ZTE Director.
