ZTE Small Fresh 5

Definitely one of the best looking ZTE smartphones out there and i’ve seen alot. The dual antenna lines always adds a unique flair to any device, and it did wonders on the Small Fresh 5. The dual rear shooters sits side by side the dual-LED flash.

The symmetrical format going on at the top is totally the highlight at the rear. There’s a rear fingerprint scanner as well to unlock your device even faster. It measures just 7.9mm in thickness and weighs 132g overall, making it very easy to operate with a single hand. It’s available in sophisticated colors like Glacier Blue and Green, Dark Night Gray and Elegant Gold.


ZTE Small Fresh 5

A midrange device that displays like a budget smartphone, the screen is pretty disappointing to say the least. Even though the screen stretches all the way to the sides, the top and bottom bezel are enormous and pretty disturbing to look at.

Nonetheless, three navigation buttons are present at the bottom bezel, while the top is busy with the usual features. The 5-inch HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen displays standard visuals. Boasting of 1280 x 720 pixels in resolution and 293.72 pixel per inch density. Disappointingly, the screen could only get to 67.18% screen to body ratio.
