Description

ZTE Grand Memo is the largest smartphone in the company's history. How large is large, you ask? Well, it sits right there in phablet territory with its massive, 5.7-inch display. We aren't dealing with one of those fancy 1080p panels, however. Instead, the screen has a resolution of "only" 1280 by 720 pixels, which definitely isn't bad, but that's just not as many dots as you'd get from, let's say the ZTE Grand S flagship. But other than that, the ZTE Grand Memo packs some impressive hardware, such as its quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC running at 1.7GHz. There's a 13MP snapper on its back as well, and the unit itself has a respectable thickness of only 8 millimeters. Which version of Android the smartphone will ship with has not been mentioned, but what we do know is that its interface is complemented by a T9 keyboard made for single-handed use

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 258 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
