Rubik's Cube transitions

The Memo features Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, but be aware -- ZTE includes its own skin on top. From the notification bar, to the odd Rubik's Cube animation for the app drawer, you won't get away from this UI.

Keeping it trim

With a 0.33-inch profile, the phone is incredibly thin. It measures 6.3 inches tall and 3.25 inches wide, and feels relatively lightweight in the hand -- for a phablet, anyway.
