Hands-On: ZTE Amigo, Skate and Blade

Amigo Skate Blade Comments  2  

The Skate is the new flagship device from ZTE. It has a massive 4.3-inch display and runs Androide 2.3 Gingerbread.

As is typical of devices with such large displays, the Skate is a huge slab of a phone. Despite the large rectangular footprint, the Skate is fairly thin (though not as thin as the Samsung Galaxy S II). The feel of the Skate is a bit on the cheap side, however, and it felt "creaky" to me. ZTE's representatives were unable to confirm if the handsets on hand were final build or not. I am hoping for the latter. The plastics of this device felt cheap and it was loosely cobbled together.

The large display looked really good. It offers the standard 800 x 480 resolution that is common to displays of this size. It was sharp and colorful, but not as bright as the Amigo's smaller display.

The controls are well positioned along the outer edge of the Skate, but they didn't offer the best feedback.
