Ever wanted a projector/mobile hotspot combo? Sprint’s got you covered

ZTE Projector on stand back

In the age of Chromecast and other over-the-air streaming methods, folks aren’t exactly yearning for a portable pico projector. Going one step shy of putting said projector into a phone (looking at you, Samsung), Sprint today introduced the LivePro, a combination mini projector and mobile hotspot powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Sharing YouTube clips with your friends and family while on the go just got a little more weird.

Sprint is calling it a “world’s first,” but we’re left wondering if it was even necessary. Sprint has us asking that question quite often, so it’s nothing out of the usual. The projector portion features a “10-inch to 10-foot projection display” and the 3G/4G hotspot can offer up to 8 WiFi connections simultaneously. A 4-inch touch display gives access to that Jelly Bean user interface and the gadgets 5000mAh battery can even be used to charge a smartphone. Sprint (by way of ZTE) really thought of everything with this one.

The most ironic part? The projector support WiFi Miracast to wireless broadcast video content to the projector. OK, we get that this could be useful when there is no compatible TV nearby, but let’s be real. I suppose we get the angle that this could be a useful business tool, but most modern offices have more than enough equipment on hand to make easy work of showing slides at a meeting.

In short, the LivePro is a device that attempts to do everything you never needed it to do, and it doesn’t do it cheap. When purchased via a Sprint Easy Pay plan, the LivePro will run $18.75/month for 24 months, or $450 total. Welcome to the framily, LivePro!

ZTE joins ranks of companies that want to slap a smartwatch on your wrist

ZTE

Samsung’s release of the Galaxy Gear back in September certainly set off an avalanche of activity in the wearable device market despite the questions surrounding the device’s success or lack of success on the market. The latest company to get swept up by a desire to develop and sell a smartwatch is ZTE Corp. which has announced plans to produce a device during the first quarter of 2014 with sales to commence during the second quarter. According to an official with ZTE, Lu Qianhao, the head of their handset marketing strategy, ZTE will be producing a low cost smartwatch in an effort to appeal to a broader market. At this point, the focus is primarily on the Chinese market, but Mr. Lu does indicate the company hopes to eventually expand into the U.S. and European markets later in 2014.

No specific details about what kind of hardware or features ZTE plans to make available via a smartwatch, but it does appear they plan to follow Samsung’s lead and produce them so that they will only work with other ZTE devices. Lu says that connection between the devices is at least partially due to a desire to make their smartphones more appealing to consumers. Even with China, ZTE only holds 5% of the market and their share has been falling lately.

In addition to smartwatches, Lu mentions ZTE is also interested in producing smart glasses type devices and possibly “smart shoes” geared toward those with healthcare or fitness related requirements.

The field of manufacturers rushing to get smartwatches on the shelves is certainly getting crowded. However, analysts think the market for the devices will only be about 5 million units in 2014, a tiny fraction of the smartphone market that is expected to exceed 1 billion units. ZTE will certainly have a challenging making the device a success as more producers are expected to join in, especially in the lower cost portion of the market.

ZTE preparing to enter the smartwatch market

Smartwatches appear to have found a niche following, but that doesn’t seem to have stopped newcomers from trying to make their presence known. There is the Pebble as well as Samsung Galaxy Gear, Qualcomm Toq and at least a handful of others — both available and in development. Not to mention, the ones that are still in rumor. Anyway, it looks as if ZTE is prepping a smartwatch of their own.

zte-nubia-01

Lu Qianhao, the head of marketing strategy for ZTE recently told the Wall Street Journal about plans to launch a smartwatch during the second quarter of 2014. Details of the watch are still light, however it was said that ZTE is looking to attract a mainstream audience. And for better of worse, further details here brought comparison to the Samsung Galaxy Gear.

According to details coming from the WSJ report, it was said the “smartwatch will offer technological features that are similar to existing products such as the Galaxy Gear.” Pricing was also mentioned and in this case, that may have also touched on where the watch will be available for purchase, at least initially. Qianhao mentioned the watch “will sell for lower prices as it tries to appeal to China’s cost-conscious consumers.”

Of course, similar to how we have seen ZTE release smartphones outside of China, the watch will follow that same pattern. There wasn’t any timeline given, but there was talk of “gradually” entering the US and European markets “later.” Sounds like ZTE is looking to test the smartwatch waters in China before they fully commit to other markets.

So far there isn’t any name for the watch. Development is expected to begin early next year, which means it may be a few weeks before we learn anything else official. In the meantime, we suspect there may be some rumors. Aside from ZTE, we have also seen talk of a Coolpad CWatch arriving for the Chinese market.

ZTE nubia Z5S mini benchmark results surface

Following a series of rumors and leaks, ZTE officially unveiled the nubia Z5S and Z5S mini at an event earlier in the month. ZTE offered details on the specs and pricing at the time and while we had a good idea of how the phones would perform based on the hardware, some still prefer to see the benchmarks so they can better compare to other devices. In this case, it looks like benchmarks for the nubia Z5S mini have recently surfaced.

ZTE-Nubia-Z5S-540x344

The benchmarks have been done using AnTuTu and come courtesy of ePrice. As you will see in the screenshots sitting below, the nubia Z5S mini scored a 21012. In the screenshot sitting on the right, there is also further confirmation on the specs. Granted, these have already been officially announced, but when dealing with screenshots, the more information the better. In this case we are seeing details of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean along with a 1.7GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 graphics.

Nubia-Z5S-Mini-Benchmark

Aside from the overall score of 21012, the nubia Z5S mini fell in between the HTC One and Galaxy Note 2. It also placed above the Xperia Z, Nexus 10 and Galaxy S III. Given the nubia Z5S mini is sporting a Snapdragon 600 processor, that is sort of where we would expect it to fall in line. And on the flip side, these AnTuTu results have the handset sitting below the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S 4 as well as the Xioami MI 2S. In comparison, the MI 2S is also sporting a Snapdragon 600 processor.

Other specs of the nubia Z5S mini include a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture, 5 megapixel front-facing camera, 2000 mAh battery, 7.6mm thickness and options for 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. The display on the mini will measure in at 4.7-inches and depending on the market, there will also be LTE and/or 3G connectivity.

ZTE nubia 5 review

If you haven’t heard of ZTE, and you’re one who likes to go the unlocked device route, it may be time to take notice. ZTE is a Chinese telecommunications company, and by 2012 unit sales, it was the world’s fourth largest phone manufacturer. They’ve actually been manufacturing phones for carriers in the US for sometime, including prepaid carriers MetroPCS and Cricket. According to analysts, ZTE has been the fastest growing smartphone manufacturer in the US recently thanks to low-end smartphone sales. ZTE’s the big player in the mobile industry you’ve never heard of. Now, they’re ready to make a splash in the high-end market.

Enter the ZTE nubia 5. Released about a month ago, the ZTE nubia 5 became a player in the US in the unlocked Android device arena. This is ZTE’s first attempt to show the US market what they can do. ZTE released two devices at the same time, the nubia 5 and the Grand S. The nubia 5 is the higher-end model. I’ve had my hands on the device for about two weeks, and this is a full review of the ZTE nubia 5.

1. Hardware


Size: 5.42″ x 2.7″ x 0.29″
Weight: 4.51 oz
5″ 1080p FHD IPS LCD (443 ppi)
1.5 GHz Quad-Core APQ8064
2GB DDR RAM
16GB ROM
2300 mAH non-removable battery
13 MP rear facing camera
2 MP front facing camera
Radio: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 UMTS 850/1900/2100
Wi-Fi: 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0
NFC

2. Design

I wrote quite a bit about the design in my first impressions post on the ZTE nubia 5. The nubia 5 is designed to impress. It has a non-removable soft-touch plastic back very similar to what you will find with the current Nexus series. You’ll find the 13 MP shooter protruding from the back. Around the camera is a beautifully styled red metallic ring, reminiscent of the HTC EVO series. Commenters from the first impressions post said it looks like the Droid DNA, and they’re right. Beneath the rear-facing camera is the LED flash, and then the name of the device, “nubia,” in shiny metallic letters. If you take a look at the ‘a’ in nubia, you’ll find another red circle, which is a consistent theme throughout the device. On the bottom of the back are two rear-firing speakers, which have great sound output.

Unlike the Droid DNA, the nubia has a brushed metal (it probably is just aluminum) frame for the sides of the device. Button placement is pretty standard; the power button is on the right side, and a volume rocker is on the left. On the top of the device, you have both the 3.5 mm headphone jack and the sim card slot. On the bottom you have your microphone and micro-usb port. On the top front of the device you’ll find your speaker grill and front-facing 2 MP camera.

The nubia 5 has three capacitive buttons on the front of the device. This is one of the places where the red ring theme comes into play. For the home button on the nubia, you have a red ring that also doubles as your notification light. To the left and right of the red ring home button, you have your back button (right) and menu button (left) both as just red dots. Neither of these buttons are obviously labelled as a back, menu, or home button. It didn’t take me long to get this figured out, but for a novice smartphone user this might be pretty irritating to get the hang of. The styling looks great, but it’s not immediately user friendly.

3. Build Quality

The ZTE nubia 5 has exceptional build quality. I feel like the designers of the nubia 5 paid attention to detail to created a device that feels great in the hand. I might be partial, but I’m a fan of the soft-touch plastic, and the nubia 5 has a very solid feel. No creaking. Buttons are nice and clickly. I have experienced no disappointments in the build quality department.

4. Display

The nubia 5 is sporting a 5″ 1080p FHD IPS LCD display with a pixel density of 443 ppi. Five-inch 1080p displays seem to be the new gold standard in the Android mobile industry of late, and this display is no slouch. With IPS LCD technology, you’re not going to see the deep blacks and heavy saturation as with Samsung’s AMOLED displays, but the nubia 5′s display is bright and crisp. I do feel like the colors were deeper compared to the Nexus 5′s IPS LCD display. Viewing angles are reasonable. It’s a really beautiful display, and I’m sure if you have the nubia in hand you’ll have very little to complain about.

5. Software

If I had to have a beef with the nubia 5, I would choose software as my least favorite part of the experience. It surprises me how well crafted the device is compared the software that, to me, feels like an afterthought. The launcher is fairly standard except for the fact that it has no app drawer. This will remind you of an iOS layout, where all installed apps will be added to a homecreen. This isn’t, however, where my issues lie; there are misspellings that I’ve found and grammar mistakes. Also, there are some features, such as new words being added when working with the stock keyboard, that are completely in Chinese. I know ZTE is a Chinese manufacturer, but this shouldn’t be an excuse. Samsung is Korean and I’ve never run into reminders of that. Lastly, I ran into issues with force closes and slow loading with the stock launcher when trying to return the home screen. This issues aren’t all the time, but they were there under normal use. If there is any caveat to these issues, it’s that there are plenty of replacement launchers out there that will work really well. About a week into my review, I switched to my usual Action Launcher Pro and had a very smooth experience with the rest of my time with the device.

Beyond the launcher, the lock screen continues the red-ring theme; press and hold the red ring to unlock the device. At first, I didn’t like having to press and hold to unlock the device, but I quickly got used to it. You can also swipe a camera icon or music icon into the red-ring to quick launch your camera app or whatever music app you set to default. I liked that I could set Spotify there as my music default and that ZTE didn’t force me to use whatever stock music app came with the device.

ZTE includes some interesting apps with the nubia 5. These apps include a backup app for personal info like contacts and SMS as well as system settings, a file manager, flashlight, FM radio, notepad, an app to create profiles for home and work, screen projection, a search app and a sound recorder app. I think most of these apps were nice to include. ZTE offers an option to record phone calls with their sound recorder app. Maybe that’s creepy? I don’t know. But I used it when I interviewed ZTE’s Waiman Lam, director of wireless in the US. It was handy to have to review what we talked about. I do not like that ZTE includes their search and clock app. It makes some of the functions with Google Now that I use on a daily basis less functional. If I ask Google Now to set an alarm, it will only open up the clock app and not actually set anything.

One other software item to note: I didn’t hate the stock keyboards on the nubia 5. It actually comes with the stock AOSP keyboard or the TouchPal Keyboard. Both of those keyboards are nice options and I actually never put my go-to SwiftKey keyboard on the device the whole time I was using the nubia 5. I don’t think the TouchPal keyboard is better than SwiftKey; I just didn’t hate it, so I kept using it.

2013-10-25 22.56.28 2013-10-26 06.27.38 2013-10-26 19.58.29 2013-10-28 08.35.33 2013-10-28 13.10.40 2013-10-31 10.15.26 2013-11-06 14.21.08 2013-11-19 10.30.02

6. Performance

I would describe the performance experience you will get from the ZTE nubia 5 as medium to medium-high. If you didn’t notice from checking out the hardware specs, the nubia 5 basically has the Nexus 4′s guts with a bigger and nicer display and camera. So this is last year’s processor in a device that’s fairly high-end elsewhere. That said, the Snapdragon S4 APQ8064 is no slouch. Most functions performed on the nubia 5 will be snappy and quick. Lag is not something that comes around often with the nubia 5, but it will rear its ugly head occasionally.

Gaming on the nubia 5 was nothing but a positive experience for me. All the games I typically love to play and use to put a device through its paces performed great. Riptide GP2, Granny Smith and Dragon Fly all ran perfectly without any lag. If you’re into gaming on big beautiful screens and nice loud speakers with no lag, definitely keep this phone in the running.

7. Call Quality and Audio

The ZTE nubia 5 packs a radio that supports GSM 850/900/1800/1900 and UMTS 850/1900/2100 bands. I tested the nubia 5 on AT&T’s network in the Spokane, WA area. I had no issues with connectivity or dropped calls.

I wanted to get you all some side by side data speed tests, but for some weird reason I couldn’t get the Speedtest.net app to work. Also, because it seems like this is the most appropriate place to put this, I felt like WiFi connectivity was really good. For one, I know that the graphic that ZTE uses for WiFi always showed about one more bar compared to other phones I use around my house, although signal strength actually wasn’t stronger. The nubia 5 may handle low signal strength better than the Nexus 5.

One thing I was slightly disappointed with was the volume level coming out of the headphone jack. I don’t have a crazy sound system in my car, but with the volume blasted on the nubia 5 through my car stereo, I wasn’t pushing the speakers as hard as I have been able to with other phones.

8. Camera

The camera on the ZTE nubia 5, in my opinion, is very interesting. The camera is a 13 MP shooter with some pretty big-name hardware in there. IT features a Konica-Minolta 5–piece prevision lens made of scratch-resistant sapphire. The camera has an F2.2 constant aperture on both the front-facing and rear-facing cameras, a Sony CMOS chip sensor, a blue glass composite IR filter, a Voice Coil Motor (VCM) to improve focusing accuracy and a 1A OSRAM high intensity flash with precision machining lens (users can thread precision up to 20m). I have no idea what most of that stuff means. I’m certainly no camera guru, but I can tell you about my general average-user experience.

The general camera layout is very understated. In auto mode, the options you have to play with are simple. You can turn on face detection, HDR mode, turn on/off flash and switch between front and rear facing. There aren’t a whole bunch of different shooting modes like you’ll find with a Galaxy S 4. The camera does have a burst mode, though, that takes an insane amount of pictures. So if you want to make sure you capture that magical moment of your kid, this nubia 5 will definitely have you covered. Additionally, the nubia 5 offers a “Fun” shooting mode that offers all the filters you’ll ever want to ruin your photos with.

Where the nubia 5 camera really stands is with the “Pro” shooting mode. According to ZTE, this mode incorporates the core function of a professional DSLR, including metering and focusing separation, level meter and compass assisted composition. You can separate the focus and the white balance of the image capture, which is a cool feature, but I don’t know if I’d throw the word DSLR in there. However, ZTE really feels like this camera (and what they allow you to do with it) separates this device from the rest. If you’re someone that wants more professional options out of your picture taking experience, the ZTE nubia 5 offers some compelling hardware and software options for you.

As for the actual output comparison, I’ve taken a few shots comparing the nubia 5 with both the Nexus 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S4. I feel like the image output between the nubia and Galaxy S4 were pretty comparable. What do you think?

One last word on the camera: video recording. The nubia 5 filters the audio it picks up when recording video. This is pretty helpful if, for example, you’re shooting video while someone is vacuuming. It does a really decent job making a video that isn’t crazy obnoxious and loud. However, the nubia 5 did not pick up my son giving a speech in a classroom environment where the sound was less direct. The audio cut in and out a lot in that case, and I was a little disappointed by that. Lastly, I noticed a lot of autofocusing and quick adjustments going on while video recording that ended up being quite distracting when watching the video. I think these issues could be fixed with software updates, but these are things I ran into while using the device. Overall, I gave the camera experience an average rating. I think the camera was really cool, but its video/audio recording could use some work.

9. Battery Life

The nubia 5 comes with a non-removable 2300 mAH battery, which seems a little on the light side, but I personally had zero trouble getting this device to last me a normal day.

2013-10-29 19.29.06

10. Extras

Have I mentioned the box the nubia 5 comes in yet? It’s a rad box. I’m not quite sure why I feel like it’s such a big deal, but I guess it left an impression on me. In terms of other extras, the nubia 5 does come with a pair of headphones and the standard wall charger and micro-USB cable. Other than the box, these “extras” are fairly standard for high-end devices.

ZTE nubia 57 / 10

Overall, I’m giving the ZTE nubia 5 a 7/10. I’ve had a generally good experience with the device. It’s a beautiful piece of hardware with room for improvement in the software arena. Who would I recommend this phone to? I would recommend this device for someone who’s looking for an unlocked device with a great media experience and above average camera. It has a beautiful display and great sound output. Who would I not recommend this device for? Your mom. Seriously though, I don’t feel like the nubia 5 is the easiest device to use out of the box. I’m not saying your mom is stupid. I’m sure your mom could figure it out. But ZTE has shown that they are shooting for looks over function. That works great for me, but this device isn’t for  someone who needs a simple device to use.

The nubia 5 is available exclusively on Amazon. As of the time of this posting, the device is going to set you back $432.90, which is an impressive price for a device with this kind of specs. This price seems to fluctuate a little, so keep an eye on that. Definitely let me know if you have any questions about the nubia 5. I probably missed something, so call me out and ask away.

What are your thoughts on the nubia 5? Is ZTE going to make any sort of a splash in the US market with this device? Does the nubia 5 stand any chance in the unlocked market against the Nexus 5? Is a better camera worth $80+? Let us know in the comments below!

Massive ZTE Nubia Z7 leaks, shows a 6.44 inch screen

ZTE nubia Z7

If you’re in the market for an enormous phone like the Xperia Z Ultra, you’re about to have another option to look at. The ZTE Nubia Z7 has leaked, and it looks like it’s just as big as the Ultra, for better or worse. Rumored specs say this thing has a 6.44 inch screen, identical to what Sony’s mega-phablet offers. There will also reportedly be a slightly faster Snapdragon 800 CPU, a 1080p screen, 3 GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel rear camera, and 128 GB of internal storage and Android 4.4.

If you aren’t impressed by those specs in a smartphone, I seriously doubt any phone is going to make you happy. Obviously, the specs are still just a rumor at this point, so take them with a grain of salt, but there’s nothing wrong with keeping your hopes up.

ZTE announces the Nubia Z5s and Z5s Mini

ZTE Nubia Z5s

ZTE has announced a pair of two new phones, titled the Nubia Z5s and the Nubia Z5s Mini. The Z5s is the more high-end of the two, sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU under a 1080p display, complete with 2 GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel camera with OIS and an f/2.0 aperture, and Android 2.2 out of the box. It’s a far cry from a budget smartphone which traditionally comes from ZTE. You’ll have two options as far as internal storage and network connectivity; a 16 GB 3G model or a 32 GB LTE model. Naturally, the LTE model raises the price a bit, but it’s still only priced around $567. ZTE managed to pack in some beefy specs at that price point, so it should definitely give other manufacturers solid competition in the international market.

The Z5s Mini fortunately isn’t a completely gimped model of the Z5s like we’ve seen Samsung and HTC do. It’s not as powerful as its bigger counterpart, but it could still qualify as a high end device. You’ll get a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon CPU (probably a 600 or 400) with 2 GB of RAM, a similar 13 megapixel rear shooter, and Android 4.2. It’s also going to be available as a 16 GB 3G model or 32 GB LTE model, with each running $246 and $348 respectively. Obviously these aren’t going to compete with the S 4s and HTC Ones of the market, but for those of you that prefer smaller phones, this is one of the more compelling options we’ve seen.

As of right now, there’s no word on an American release for either of these new devices, but if ZTE manages to have some success with them in other markets, we might end up seeing some more devices from the company make their way to the States in the future.

ZTE nubia Z7 image leaks with details on specs

ZTE recently announced the nubia Z5S and Z5S mini, however it looks like there are still some unannounced nubia branded devices. An image of the nubia Z7 has leaked and well, it appears as if ZTE is venturing into the world of oversized smartphones. Details of the handset point towards it arriving with a 6.44-inch 1080p display.

zte-nubia-z7

The image was spotted on the Chinese language 3G.cn website, which also revealed the nubia Z7 will be powered by a Snapdragon 800 8974AB processor. Keeping in mind these details have yet to be confirmed by ZTE, there was also word of 128GB of storage and 3GB of RAM along with an Adreno 330 GPU and a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera.

Other details for the camera show it being backside-illuminated, with an f/2.0 aperture and optical image stabilization (OIS). The nubia Z7 is also expected to launch with Android 4.4 Kit Kat and with 4G LTE connectivity.

That all having been said, while an image has leaked and the specs appear to be taking shape — the handset isn’t expected to arrive for a while. Further details coming from this report mention “an expected launch date for next year.”

Aside from leaks of the nubia Z7, the Z5S and Z5S mini were officially announced at an event earlier today. These two will have a 5-inch and 4.7-inch display respectively and while the regular sized model will have a Snapdragon 800 processor (the mini has a Snapdragon 600), they both share many of the same specs including 4G LTE and 3G connectivity as well as 2GB of RAM and options for 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.

ZTE nubia Z5S and Z5S mini get an official unveil

Details of the ZTE nubia Z5S had been leaking. Those early leaks were suggesting a handset with a 5-inch display and Snapdragon 800 processor. And well, it looks like that is what ZTE has unveiled. Or, at least part of what ZTE has unveiled. You see, along with the 5-inch nubia Z5S, there was also word of the nubia Z5S mini with a not-so-mini 4.7-inch display.

ZTE-Nubia-Z5S

While there are some differences between the two handsets, they do share many of the same specs. For example, both are launching with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and both will have LTE and/or 3G connectivity (depending on the market). Both models will also have a 5 megapixel front-facing camera and 13 megapixel front-facing camera. That said, while both models have a 13MP rear-facing camera, they are not identical.

The nubia Z5S will have an f/2.0 aperture with optical image stabilization and the ability to record video at up to 120 frames per second and also in 4K. The Z5S mini will have an f/2.2 aperture and skip on the optical image stabilization. Both models also have 2GB of RAM and options for 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.

Otherwise, the Z5S is powered by a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor while the Z5S mini has a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600. In terms of battery, the Z5S has a 2300 mAh and the Z5S mini has a slightly smaller 2000 mAh. Both handsets are on the thin side and measure in at 7.6mm thick.

As for weight, the Z5S and Z5S mini are close and come in at 126 grams and 120 grams respectively. The Z5S 5-inch display is 1080p and with a ppi of 442. The pricing will vary depending on whether the handset has LTE or 3G and by how much internal storage is available.

But with that in mind, the Z5S pricing will begin at 1999 Yuan for a 16GB 3G model and top out at 3546 Yuan for an LTE model with 32GB of storage. The Z5S mini starts at 1499 Yaun for a 16GB 3G model and then climbs to 2345 Yuan for an LTE model with 32GB of internal storage.
