Is there a single person who would prefer it over Lumia/Titan...?

In terms of design, it's pretty good looking in white but the plastic isn't very appealing. Specs aren't bad either, the only issue I would have with this phone is 4GB of storage.

Actually it's a good device for those who want a large display and don't really care about the camera..because it costs 390$.

See with Windows Phone, the specs should be the same as all the other WP's. I am not too sure of the camera, but the design looks nice in white. It looks very slim & the 4.3" screen looks very good at the price point.

Yes the 4GB is weak but for the price I am sure people will look at it, even if they have to remove stuff they don't use on their phones to their computers to make space on their phones. A small price to pay for a phone that is this affordable.

Design is not bad, but there is also Nokia Lumia. And 4 Gigabyte with the lack of SD-storage simply suck, (the real available memory could be even less) no matter how you look at it.

This one is GBP250. Lumia 710 is GBP300, Lumia 800 and Titan are GBP 400

Thanks for the perspective. 400 pounds or 250 pounds for a windows phone -- it makes you wonder if you should spend the marginal 150 pounds for the larger screen, better memory, etc.

In business, this is commonly referred to as "disruptive technology" meaning (in a nutshell) how an inferior device maker generally overtakes the market leaders overtime because the inferior device maker gets better overtime and still charges less for the device, respectively, resulting in a compelling value. That said, ZTE's next few windows phones will be better and if they keep the same price point of 250 pounds, that will help anchor people's expectations for a windows phone.

This was a great buying option for me until I saw that it only has 4GB of non-expandable memory.
