This ZTE Avid Plus Is Affordable. Specs Inside

The name ZTE may give you the picture of a modem especially if you are not too familiar with smartphones. But no, this time around, the Chinese company is offering you an affordable smartphone. The ZTE Avid Plus features entry-level specifications, including an FWVGA display and a quad-core processor.

Interestingly, the ZTE Avid Plus offers a decent 5 inch screen display for content viewing and gaming. The ZTE Avid Plus features a measly FWVGA resolution of 854 x 480 pixels for a lowly pixel density of about 196 ppi.

The touchscreen is protected by scratch-resistant Dragontrail glass.  The phone is also equipped with a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel selfie camera. These snappers may deliver good enough images, but do not expect anything special.
