ZTE just brought two interesting phones to the MWC - ZTE Grand Memo for being the first to use the Snapdragon 800 chipset and ZTE Open, an entry-level Firefox OS phone.

  • 1.0 GHz Cortex-A5, Qualcomm MSM7225A Snapdragon
  • Adreno 200
  • 256MB RAM
  • 3.15 MP back camera

No pricing and avaibility reveal yet.

My Opinion : Beside the latest chipset in Grand Memo, nothing interesting. Well, it is not bad actually it just that, how will it to compare with current competitor? Of course I am interested to know how the latest and fastest Snapdragon 800 chipset perform. ZTE Open seem pretty low end spec. But it doesn't matter as long as it can handle the OS and apps smoothly without lag.
