ZTE Grand Memo hands-on

massive 5.7" 1280x720 pixels display that can't leave you unimpressed with its sheer size, especially if you like phones like the Galaxy Note II. Viewing angles are decent, and the pixel density seems enough despite the larger screen size. There's too much bezel on the sides, though, which adds to the unwieldy width of the device.The Grand Memo sports a
ZTE delivers a quad-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon 800 600 processor, the same we have already seen in other high-end devices like the HTC One.
There is 2GB RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, and a 13 MP rear camera. The best selling point besides the display and processor seems to be a huge 3200 mAh battery, which should keep you ticking heavily for a full day and change. Take a peek at our hands-on photos and video of the ZTE Grand Memo below.

I was just reading Engadget and they are mentioning the Grand Memo as having the Snapdragon 800 processor. I don't know if that's another version of the phone or what, but it's interesting to note that there is a Grand Memo with a Snapdragon 800 processor out there.

The huge battery is because they didn't put energy efficient processor and display, like sony does. Not impressed.

720p not efficient over a 1080p, eh?? S4 Pro is the same processor plus it has a larger battery so I don't get it.

I don't understand why they would put such a beast of a processor into a phone with a 720 display & 1 GB of RAM. The phone clearly doesn't need that kind of power to run properly. What a waste.

The Qualcomm 800 one is supposed to be 1080p. If this has the Qualcomm 800, then Samsung better not use the 600 in the GS4. If the GS4 packed the Qualcomm 800 and a 3000 mah battery like the RAZR Maxx' then its game over for everyone else.

Samsung will probably use the 600 just for convenience of release. The 800 isn't supposed to be commercially available until June at the earliest, it's just sampling right now. If Samsung announces the GS4 with the 800 in March, that means it won't be actually released for nearly 3 months, which is much too long of a wait. Unless the 800 becomes commercially available earlier than expected, which I doubt, Samsung will use the 600.

It will be available if Samsung says so simply because Qualcomm won't miss out on a 100.000.000 order. But if the 800 drains too much energy, Sammy might skip on it for that alone, and would be wise to do so, as after lag is completely gone, battery performance becomes more important than benchmarks with no notable difference to the user.

It is disappointing that such a capable processor is placed on a phone with a 720p display, the specs on this phone are amazing and then you see the 720p display. If the screen was 5 inches or smaller than it isn't a problem but at a size of 5.7 inches, a difference between 1080p and 720p can be distinguished.
