Thanks to the latest tweet sent out by evleaks, we have an idea what the ZTE Grand X Pro looks like and what it looks like is a device with a nice edge-to-edge display, no capacitive buttons, and Android 4.0 running the show...

Hopefully it's a 4.5" 720P display. An edge to edge display on a 4.5" screen would be sweet. I'm assuming S4 processor and very cheap. Just the way ZTE likes it.

Actually, that's one of the better looking phones I have seen in quite a while. With a 720 screen and S4, I would consider it in a heartbeat. Not to mention, AOSP. Score one for ZTE. It just needs CDMA/LTE bands/modems on VZW.......Not that it's going to happen.

VZW has picked up a few ZTE phones. It might happen. I'm hoping for tmobile though. I'm leaving VZW.

I just don't use cell service enough to care about quality. I use my phone a lot but mostly on wi-fi. I also live in areas that get great reception no matter the carrier. I'd rather the save money and put it towards something I'll actually use.

This doesn't look very AOSP... look at the custom phone and contact buttons, as well as the app drawer. There's at least a theme skin on it.

leave Verizon? WHAT!?! Why would you leave the best network? Ranked the best customer service? Sir, you will soon realize that all the networks are the same. You find that out after you network hop

he's leaving because verizon is overpriced and going to a better carrier with UNLIMITED data and a cheaper bill. Plus Verizon is the slowest carrier to update phones great customer service but bad customer care. An for your LTE rebuttal HSPA+ is faster in some areas and has a larger 4g footprint then verizon. Sure Tmobile is going to LTE but their current 4G and Prices can't be beat.

I don't need best. I need cheap. Of all my data usage, 95% is on wifi. Whether I'm at home or at school or work, wifi is way better than most 4G/3G speeds and ping. I'd rather get my moneys worth.

i dont really like on screen navagation.. i prefer capacitive buttons...i really like the gesture base of the playbook...even n the iPad.... on screen ruin the whole gesture experience for me...
and you'll not get the REAL size of the device... for example if this is 4.5" screen, you'll only get 4.4" coz of that on screen navatation...
so yeah..just my opinion!

one plus to that. ..just my opinion too.
and the capacitive buttons look much better than the stock android soft buttons. seriously google has to make some of their icons and screens look better.

yeah... im really annoyed of clicking wrong on the on screen buttons... i feel so good with the full gesture of playbook (iPad and windows 8 as well)
so in android, capacitive feels and so much better...
again, my opinion... :)

It is strange to type these words...
I am fairly impressed with what ZTE is prepping. There were some interesting WP devices rumored, and this is a fun looking Android. I am loving the near stock ICS, and the phone itself is decent.
They got me interested.

Weird right? The ZTE flash is looking pretty good too. I'm hoping ZTE, Pantech, and Huawei all start stepping up their game and give some more competition to Samsung/HTC/Motorola.

ZTE should do well in the future, if they keep it as close to stock as possible...

Erm.. that display doesn't reach to the edge. I always get excited when I see an article title describing an edge-to-edge device, and I'm always disappointed by it not being edge-to-edge.
