ZTE Grand X Max+ phablet outed as a gentle upgrade where it counts
It is ZTE's turn to take the stage today at CES 2015 in Las Vegas, and unleash a phone or two, and the unveil it did, starting with the Grand X Max+ upgrade. 

Don't be fooled by the title, though, as the only gentle updates compared to the Grand X Max are the camera resolution, processor and the memory amounts. The 6-inch phone still sports a 720x1280 pixels panel of HD resolution, though, which returns the rather unimpressive 245ppi, which should suffice if you are not a screen purist.

It, however, now comes with Snapdragon 400 instead of the lowly 200, 2 GB of RAM instead of 1 GB, 16 GB of storage instead of 8 GB, and a 13 MP rear camera out of the box instead of 8 MP, making it a much more palatable proposition for the price. In addition, we get a 5 MP selfie camera at the front, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat as standard. In the US, the Grand X Max+ will be available starting January 9, for $200 from the prepaid carrier, Cricket Wireless.

It's actuallu called the "grand x max +". That's three things in there which imply it's big.

Im on Cricket now, I considered the Grand Max X but it just wasn't worth it, I went with the Moto G instead. The Cricket one is great because it is LTE enabled and micro sd enabled, and they were selling for $100 whereas moto wants about $200 for the same one.
