Summary: While we like what ZTE is trying to do with the Grand X it doesn't quite represent value for money. If you want the stock Android experience then you should go with Samsung Galaxy Nexus instead: it costs around the same now but has a larger screen and better build quality as well. Nonetheless, this marks the start of a new era for ZTE and we look forward to seeing what comes up with next: Samsung ought to be nervous.
Conclusion: The ZTE Grand X is unashamedly trying to punch above its price point, and I have to admire that. If you need a good camera and stunning battery life for processor sapping gaming, then look away. On the other hand, if you like the idea of a vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich and a large screen for a reasonable price then this handset might just float your boat.
Pros: Dual-core processor, Large screen, Unskinned Android 4.0
Cons: Average battery life, Short on internal memory, Poor camera
