Titles of "world's thinnest" are a dime a dozen in the smartphone world, with barely a month without someone touting their handset's record "at its thinnest part". Yet when this term is used for one of the new crop of handsets with 5" Full HD displays, one ought to listen...

5" 1080p, 1.7ghz quad core, 2gb ram, 13mp.........................1780 mAh battery-->EPIC FAIL! If a manufacturer put a 1000 mAh battery, a 0,3 mp camera and make a 3 mm phone they will also claim to have the thinnest smartphone? F A I L

They just want media attention and they also fail at that point

This phone does not cater to geeks. It's a niche product that appeals to many Chinese who use it as a fashion device and slim profile is perfect feature.

They should focus on making the thinness and bezeless phone with a 3000+ mAH battery... that would be newsworthy.

5 inches 1080 p display quad core and poor battery that won't even service one day, crap that's it, somebody who buys this is dumbass. ZTE what are you thinking.

Are the 5 dots on the left side the speaker grill??
The only thing this gorgeous looking phone meets dead end is the battery. I would rather buy a phone that is 9mm slim and has 2500mAh battery.

It's for a charging dock.. The battery life will be absolutely horrible on this

Great design, but any battery under 2000 mAh in a device with a 5-inch screen is a joke. I don't mind a few extra millimeters of thickness if it means it will last me through the day.

The Specs are killer period, the biggest question is, is the battery removable. If it is then this could be very successful. Cause any smart android user knows you can just swap a battery and reboot in a matter of 30seconds..
Also what UI is it Running?

I personally don't find this device any more attractive than the Sony Xperia Z and the battery is also smaller. So fail on ZTE's part.

I wouldnt be too quick to judge the battery until power duration is stated. The S4 Pro processor has chip architecture that actually consumes surprisingly less amount of power.

When are these companies going to learn that we don't care about the phone being the thinnest, it's redundant after a certain point. Just work on giving us a great phone that can survive a day without us worrying about where are damn chargers are all the time.

the battery is really small for a phone this powerful.....
The chinese are cutting corner to save cost again?

I was already licking my lips until I got to the battery part. Too bad.
They should make the bigger battery version also.
