And here is a $160 quad-core Android smartphone from ZTE
posted by Nick T. / Oct 30, 2012, 4:44 AM
The ZTE U950, as the smartphone is called, can be ordered on November 11 by the first 100,000 customers who reserve a unit, with further stock probably scheduled to arrive at a later date. At this time, the device seems meant to be offered on the Chinese market only.

wasn't intended to be compared to that, this is really great from ZTE providing nice specs at a very nice price.

Can't help but laugh the Galaxy Note 2 pisses all over this ZTE bum device. Matter of fact the Nexus 4 is also useless.. GalaxyNote 2 rules all believe that..

Note 2 is nice too but still cannot compare to Nexus 4, the reason is screen, Note 2 screen has a bluish tint while Engadget says Nexus 4 screen is better than One X. You are obviously a fan of Note 2 and there's nothing wrong, I can understand that but Nexus 4 rules.

It's $160 and it runs on android like the Nexus. People with money to burn will buy the Nexus, but more people can afford this device. The truth is that as android devices flood the market, it makes it difficult to spend $400 to $500 more for a top of the line device while being locked into a 2-year contract when you can buy mid-tier android devices for $150 to $170 every 6 months with each device getting better spec's, respectively.

For $160, you get snooped by the Chinese government.

Don't forget, the US has its "Patriot (snooping) Act" too? I wonder who else is snooping, the British for sure! The Russians and Israelis maybe also! It's a fairly global club! Open to all governments!
