The second major Telecom giant China is trying to succeed in the production of gadgets, especially emphasizing on the market of inexpensive devices – just this year we received a huge number of new products released in the framework of the budget sub-brand Blade. But today’s our hero in this regard is unique. It’s not Blade, not the Axon and not nubia, this “purebred” of ZTE.

He takes in the table the Chinese company is place just below the Blade V7, which we recently spoke. The case is not metal, and plastic; display with HD and not Full HD-resolution, eight-core platform, Quad-core, but Qualcomm. The dimensions of the model are similar – but the Z10 is positioned more as a female model, and suggests that thin body, and delicate colors of the case: “the black stone”, “young pink”, “deep blue” and “terracotta”.

ZTE Z10 – information about the hardware according to the application CPU Z

Design, ergonomics and software

ZTE Z10 does not follow the dress code, previously adopted only in the highest circles, and now has come down to the smartphone community – the materials are not described by a simple combination of the words “metal” and “glass.” Faces and the back panel is made of soft-touch plastic, painted in various (depending on modification) colors. But in this case the glass is present (faceplate, of course) – not easy, but as it is now, accepted a 2.5 D slightly curved towards the edges, allowing use of smartphone becomes more convenient.

There are inclusions of metal: a speaker grille above the display bezel camera lens, a thin rim around the front panel, hardware keys and, suddenly, a small panel around the power button.

It should say that the ZTE Z10 looks a very interesting and one might even say, a thoroughbred, for a budget smartphone is a rarity. From associations with Apple, of course, not to hide – but in this case they are rather strained; the reproduction here does not smell.

ZTE Z10 front panel: above the display is the earpiece grille, front camera and the sensor window lighting

Use of Z10 nice is thin and lightweight gadget that fits easily into the palm, and to reach any point of the display with the same hand is easy. Dimensions: 147,5 × 72,8 × 7,6 mm Weight: 130 grams.

ZTE Z10, back panel: top – camera lens and flash

Somewhat frustrating, only a fairly large black bar below the screen – it does not receive any useful items, such as touch keys on the system. They are just virtual and reduce the useful area of the display. While the panel is idle, it is there for symmetry.

ZTE Z10, the left side: slot for SIM-cards and/or memory card

ZTE Z10, right side: arrow keys to control the volume/lowering the camera and turn on

Keys and ports are located in the usual modern Android smartphone: and on and volume adjustment – under the thumb of the right hand; minijack on top; the slot for the SIM cards and the memory card slot on the left; the interface of charging or computer connection from below like a speaker – it is embedded in the right-grid, left, again, is present for symmetry, the usual scenario for the ZTE Z10. The port, by the way – microUSB, we’re already starting to wean.

ZTE Z10, top face: mini-Jack (3.5 mm) headphone/headset and microphone

ZTE Z10, bottom side: the microUSB port and the main speaker (hidden behind the bars to the right)

Fingerprint scanner here either – in some ways it’s very old-fashioned smartphone.

   
   
   
   
   
   

Shell MiFavor

Operating system – of course, Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the mass introduction of nougat, the case has not yet reached. Here it is lightly covered with a proprietary shell MiFavor, which manifests itself not too noticeable. At least, not as much as in ZTE Axon 7. Yes, icons key applications redrawn, something done in their own way (for example, removed the application bar), but system fonts are left alone, and a set of additional software is not too extensive. From this list of questions is only a little strange branded hub with games – he’s crudely designed and slow. The rest of the shell is very smart and is in the Arsenal of interesting settings, from choice of design icons to the degree of blur of the background picture – the latter is especially nice and helpful.

Which is not too pleasant – so it is integrated in the smartphone, search for “Yandex”. This, of course, Patriotic, but why do you need it on the lock screen when working and the built in Android Google search is unclear.
