ZTE Blade X5

Display and Camera

This 8.9mm thick smartphone sports a 5-inch IPS LCD display with an HD resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels. Users should expect decent wide-angle viewing given the display technology and a pixel density around 294 pixels per inch.

The ZTE Blade X5 features a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, autofocus and face detection for capturing some great shots.

The snapper for the ZTE Blade X5 can shoot Full HD (1080p) videos at 30 frames per second. The robust 8-megapixel sensor on the front looks like one that will greatly appeal to selfie takers as well.

Hardware and Software

Under the hood, the ZTE Blade X5 is equipped with a quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor which should make for decently enjoyable user experience.

The level of performance this Cortex-A53 CPU, which is clocked at 1.3 GHz, will deliver is a bit undone by the provision of lowly 1 GB of RAM for support.

Internal storage capacity is 8 GB and this is expandable by another 32 GB through the use of a microSD card. The ZTE Blade X5 boots Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system.

Miscellaneous Specs and Features

The device will have power supplied to it by a 2,400mAh Li-Ion battery, which is decent, but doesn’t look like much these days with all the new battery-heavy devices around. The fact that the juicer is replaceable is a plus, though.

The ZTE Blade X5 offers a fingerprint sensor, just like its more-expensive Blade X9 brother. It supports dual-SIM dual standby feature as well as lightning-fast 4G LTE connectivity for awesome mobile data usage experience.

Other connectivity options include microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, 3G HSPA, and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot.

Pricing and Availability

ZTE Blade X5 is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. ZTE Blade X5 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N45,000 to N65,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
