ZTE is looking to launch its flagship Grand S LTE in mainland China at a competitive price, based on statements by executives. With a svelte design concealing a 1080P 5-inch display, Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 13MP camera, you might expect its price to fall in line with other high-end devices. Instead, head of ZTE's mobile division He Shiyou estimates the Grand S will hit mainland China in the range of ¥3,000 to ¥3,500 (or $480 to $560).

In our time with the device at CES 2013 we came away impressed with the step up in quality from what ZTE has offered in the past. The price may still have to come down a bit more to entice users away from other handsets though, especially considering the price sensitivity of the Chinese market. As for the U.S. market, we don't have any notable information on pricing or availability.

Where are the hardware buttons? And that ZTE logo ruins the look of the phone.

Standard back / home / menu capacitive keys on the bottom. They just don't show up super well in that lighting.

Im loving that clock/westher widget! where can I download it?
The ui overall looks like a straight up touchwiz knockoff

Zte uses capacatative buttons. They're really a good company. I recently left sprint after 2 years and went prepaid and purchased a zte device. Whenthe
rep mentioned it I was like "who"? Turns out they're the 4th largest manufacturer in the world. Anyone who thinks zte is some crappy cheap company, they sell more phones than HTC, LG AND Motorola. The only companies who sell more smartphone devices than zte are Samsung, apple and Nokia. They make solid affordable devices. Only thing sucks is I'm still running gingerbread while everyone else is running ics and higher. But coming from a Evo 3d running ics I don't miss anything but the dock. Zte is really a nice company.
