Deceptively on the heavy side

The device measures 5.6 inches wide, 2.8 inches tall, and 0.4 inches wide. Weighing 5.48 ounces, it is notably heavier and denser than other devices its size.

Running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

The handset runs the rather dated Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and has the standard package of Google apps you’d expect, such as Chrome, Drive, Gmail, Plus, Hangouts, and Photos.

A stylish matte look

As one of ZTE’s more premium models, this 4G LTE phone features a clean, smooth design with curved edges, rounded corners, and a pleasing matte finish. On the back is the 13-megapixel camera.

Comfortable curvy buttons

Its physical buttons, like the volume rocker here located on the left edge, bulge out ever so slightly from the surface, making them easy to feel for and comfortable to press.

A bright 5-inch display

The Grand S Pro’s 5-inch display has a 720x1,280-pixel resolution. It's understandably not as sharp as other 1080p screens I’ve seen, but the display is still responsive and bright.

Quad-core processor inside

The device is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core processor and a removable 2,300mAh battery, which should last you about 10 hours of talk time.
