I Just Ordered This Phone The Other Day via Amazon.com, I Like The Phone Considering The Specs To Price Ratio. That Being Said I Wish Two Things This Phone Had That It Doesn't Have Compared To My "Old" LG G2 - The G2 Has a Better Screen-to-Body Ratio Even Though It's Only 5.2" Compared To The ZTE's 5.5", On Top Of That The G2's Pixel Count Is Even Slightly Higher. The Other Thing Is How Is The Qualcomm Adreno 330 GPU Chipset Better Performing Than The Adreno 506 That Has a Whole Gigabit More Of RAM?

    To all the "techies", before you tear me a new one...just hear me out. As a newcomer and admitted "novice" to cellar tech, while I both value and appreciate your "in-depth" analysis of products like this one ( I feel that your incites keep the industry moving forward), perhaps you could remember that every reader/consumer isn't one of you. Some people just want a easy to use device...not for intensive gaming, or running multiple apps at once, or taking professional studio pictures...but just a phone to take and make calls, make and receive texts, take and share photos, and connect to online apps like Facebook-at a speed a little faster than changing the channel on a TV. And not necessarily the blazing speed of a Snapdragon 821 14nm processor. Would be great if some of the "tech analysts" could simply provide information/insight on that.

      Anonymous, 06 Jan 2017U clearly don't understand the "pro" monicker stands for BE... moreThey clearly put the "PRO" moniker for an upgrade with the less efficient SD435 on ZTE blade v8.. its what you call upgrade... if other smartphone company uses pro as one of THOSE flagship phone, (lets say plus models of samsung phone) doesn't mean ZTE has to follow blindly with there naming scheme... anyway, they named it pro FOR AN UPGRADE.....

            Finally decently priced device with Snapdragon 625.
            Moto Z Play with same chipset costs twice as much, Huawei Nova is more expensive too.
            I'm waiting for the full test.

                  MrX, 05 Jan 2017Clearly you know nothing about smartphone, 625 is one of th... moreU clearly don't understand the "pro" monicker stands for BETTER version. With this device, a SD625 OBVIOUSLY a joke, since they sold it MUCH EXPENSIVE than the standard ones.

                  When buying a device with "pro"monicker, most people expect EXCELLENT performance worth its price, NOT JUST DECENT like what SD625 offers, heck, its GPU is weaker than the already "weak" Adreno 510 in SD650/652/653!

                  In the end, the ones who will buy this device are: newbies or photography lovers, not gadget experts or tech-lovers that often buy device with performance in mind
