I dont know anyone who owns a ZTE phone. Not for me either im afraid. Id rather have a Htc OR Sony equiped phone.

At least I wouldnt be paranoid they're using my phone to spy on us !

That story was unfounded according to the BBC

Well I dont think the BBC are well known for deep layered security analysis, so even if they report its not the case, in the case which was reportes, does not mean this is not the case.

I read an article in The Economist last year, which reported findings of espionage on ZTE and Huawei products. Devices which have certain deep layered rules which make them capable of recording user data and images or remote microphone activation.

Not worth it imo.

Wow ,so what's stopping the other OEMs from using the Snapdragon 800??? Anyway, if Samsung are to use a Qualcomm chip in the S4 (I really hope they don't) hopefully it will be this one.

Interesting choice of hardware by ZTE, they throw in such a powerful CPU/GPU and then couple it with 1GB RAM and HD720P display.

The display is probably to give better benchmark scores over using a higher resolution display.

Oh and saving on costs and hope the user does not notice.

It's not the s800. It's not even the s600 now apparently. What's next, it doesn't use a processor?

AFAIK there are two versions, a Japanese version using a S4 and then an international using a S800.

The Huawei spying story came out of America and basically its propaganda as the Americans wants everyone to buy American electronics so of course they see the Chinese as a threat! I know this. because I worked for a local Telco here in NZ and worked with Huawei directly and they just laughed at that story (me too) As for Chinese phones some are actually really good especially Huaweis new Ascend! This ZTE though falls short and probably. didn't have. enough time to put in a full hd display.

I once had the Huawei G300 on Vodafone a very well specced device for £100. It was a solid device. As for the spying story it was not just the BBC who said it was untrue and i just don't see the story having credibility. ZTE also recently made the Blade 3 for £80 on Virgin mobile and it has 4 inch WVGA display,1 ghz processor,ICS,5 meg camera etc all for £80 and reviews are positive.
