Android 4.2.2? Both of them should've been released with Android 4.4 out of the box.

I remember reading IGZO displays are really power effecient. Not like its going to save a lot of battery, but will surely make a difference I guess! :)

IGZO is not power effecient compared to LTPS which is what most high end phones use. Even the new Honor from Huawei uses LTPS.

Wish these Chinese companies could do something else with their design instead of just coping the 5c in this case

How f*cked up is your mind? Z5S mini is a direct descendant of their own Z5 mini, which was released around July. If anything iPhone 5c is copying ZTE by your standard.

Fandroids defending the look of ZTE? ZTE phones are garbage. Not a dime of my money will ever to ZTE when you can buy a Nexus 5 or Moto G.

Not all countries have Nexus 5 & Moto G. Even If they are available, they will cost $500 for the Nexus 5 and $300 for the Moto G. In my country, Nexus 4 costs $500. But the price of Galaxy S4 is normal here ($650). Maybe the country where you live gets subsidy from Google.

The Nexus 5 is only $20 more so I would assume that you think the Nexus 5 has horrible build quality as well, right?

And you know what, Chinese companies made sub-$300 S600+1080p phones with passable quality a few months ago. So that's that. At $330 a few months later, and a much more reliable company, you expect "horrible build quality"? LMAO.
You must think SGS4 have horrible build quality, since Z5S feels much nicer in hand than that piece of crappy plastic.
