Conclusion: The ZTE Grand X hits big, but misses big too. In its favour, there's a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor which handles games better than other phones in the price bracket, showcased by the great qHD display. It also packs a relatively stock version of Ice Cream Sandwich. But, and there are a few buts - its build feels hollow. We encountered some quite jarring stability issues and the camera is pretty terrible for a 5-megapixel auto-focus snapper.
Pros: Great gaming experience, Sharp screen, Relatively stock Android
Cons: Build feels hollow, Camera under-performs, Occasional stability issues
Summary: The ZTE Grand X puts dual-core power and Android's Ice Cream Sandwich operating system in your pocket for £190 on pay as you go, although you'll need to go to Virgin Media to get it. Buyers should beware of its underwhelming battery life, laggy camera and rubbery, unresponsive touchscreen.
