Sprint makes it big with the 5-inch Vital
It's Lynn La from CNET and today we're gonna check out Sprint's newest high-end handset, the Sprint Vital from ZTE.
Sporting a 5-inch HD touchscreen, the Vital has a 1280x720 pixel resolution and is one of the better displays I've seen on most ZTE handsets in terms of clarity and responsiveness.
At 5.43 ounces, the phone's weight is pretty decent for a device this size and it's rather comfortable to navigate with one hand.
On the back here, you'll get
this nice matte finish and this sort of subtle royal blue color that I really like.
You can take off this backplate and remove the 2.5-ampere-hour battery which has a reported talk time of up to 15 hours.
You'll also get a decent 13-megapixel camera that has a bunch of editing options like these Instagram-like filters, HDR and panoramic shooting, and macro zoom though the latter doesn't focus quite as sharply as I want to.
You can also shoot 1080p video on this and on the front there's a 1-megapixel camera.
The Vital runs on Android 4.1
Jelly Bean and includes 1 gigabyte of RAM, 8 gigabytes of internal memory and up to 64 gigabytes of expandable memory.
Lastly, it operates on a 1.5-gigahertz dual-core processor and has 4G LTE capabilities.
If you're interested, the handset is available starting June 14th for about $100 after you sign a 2-year carrier agreement and send in a mail-in rebate.
Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out the Sprint Vital.
