Competing in the rapidly growing phablet category, the front runners of which are devices such as Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Note II, LG Optimus G Pro and others, the device is massive sporting a 5.7-inch, high definition, 720 x 1280 pixels display, a 13MP rear camera and a 1MP front facing camera with 1080 HD video playback, the device is definitely power packed.
At just 8.5mm the Grand Memo is surprisingly sleek. Running Android 4.1 Jellybean, the device offers some ZTE specific applications, like the extremely creatively named care mode, which enables safe driving while using the phone.
The phone also features the HD version of ZTE’s Mifavor user interface as well as ZTE Z-cloud which is basically ZTE’s version of dropbox.
