ZTE, a Chinese manufacturer has come up with a pocket-friendly Android smartphone having premium-like specifications for daily use. The ZTE Blade Z Max has equipped with dual-camera setup and a powerful battery source.
The Blade Z Max comes with a textured plastic back for better grip. The smartphone is equipped with a large 6-inch IPS panel, comparable to the Xiaomi Mi Max. It comes with 1080p resolution which is admirable for a phone in this price range. A fingerprint sensor is also included at the back.
When we go deep inside, we see the octa-core Snapdragon 435 processor along with 2 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, expandable via a microSD card slot. Usually phones in this price range come with quad-core processor (like QMobile and Huawei in Pakistan), which makes the ZTE Blade Z Max an even better offering in the budget category.
The best part of the deal is likely the dual-lens setup of the Blade Z Max. It features 16 and 2 MP cameras, which leaves room for features such as refocusing after snapping a photo, bokeh effect, monocolor mode, and more. It is accompanied by an LED flash, phase detection autofocus and is capable of recording 1080p video. The front camera comes in at 8-megapixel resolution.
Another prominent feature that makes the Z Max a better deal is the monstrous battery backup of 4,080 mAh capacity. It also features Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 fast charging support. This phone might last you through 2 days of usage owing to the low power SoC and a 1080p screen.
