Could have been the greatest midrange!
Phone owned for less than 3 months

I like the design, the build and the specs vs money. Compared to the Oneplus One that I have used for the last half year (until the screen freezed and it died on me) it feels pretty smooth on operation. Only when running processor tough tasks (like Photoshop) I can feel that it actually is a midrange player. My only main concern with this device is, that the GPS is not working. I have spent hours searching for solutions in forums etc. with no luck - and no doubt that there is a general problem with the GPS due to the many post addressing exact this issue. I have written to ZTE China but no actual thing is being done. The two latest updates has not addressed this issue.
Another sad story is the AUX/headphone output. If you want to connect to your carstereo through a cable you will be unhappy to know, that it is not possible due to wrong impedance (I think). The phone will keep playing through the build in speaker and not letting the sound pass to the stereo. Headphones though are playing.

The camera is not very good. In daylight you might get some great shots but indoor and in low light conditions it is average. Video performance is bad. You can shoot in 1920x1080px but the result is washed out and without the expected details. Also the light/white balance is changing randomly which is pretty annoying.
The Sony sensor should be the same as in the Oneplus One, but it lacks all the details in resolution which I was very satisfied with when I had the Oneplus One.

Overall a great designed midrange phone, that could have been the best looking and smoothest running if it weren’t for bad camera performance, faulty GPS and a no sound AUX/cable output.
If ZTE fixes the GPS problems, comes up with a better camera app and makes the output work properly this phone will lead the midrangers – Until then it is no way near the best in this range, but it certainly has the potential to get there!
