As for pure Android devices, there are only a few. The Nexus line and the Play Editions by Google are the lone rangers that serve us up pure Android devices. Now Google’s home grown devices are not alone. ZTE has released the Blade Vec 4G that gives users the pure Android Experience with the Google Now Launcher. The Vec 4G was released in Europe prior to its Hong Kong release but had the ZTE interface. Now the handset has been unveiled with the Google Now launcher giving users Google’s spin on what Android is all about.
When looking at the ZTE Blade Vec 4G, the device comes equipped with some pretty decent specs. The screen on this handset is a 5 inch high density display. Looking deeper inside, the Blade Vec 4G has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM running along side. The device has 16GB of native storage so you will be able to hold quite a few things. The camera’s on the Blade Vec aren’t up to par with other camera’s out in the market, as the rear camera of the device is an 8MP while the front-facing camera gets even worse with a 1MP. Taking high quality photos on this phone is a myth considering the low-grade camera’s. Powering the device is a 2300mAh battery. The most up to date thing on this device is the software which is Android 4.4 Kitkat.
As already stated, the Blade Vec 4G offers users the Google Now Launcher. So with Android 4.4 Kitkat and Google’s launcher running with it, the handset gives users a pure Android Experience. What really is the pure Android experience? Well with the Google Now Launcher, getting to make as many screens as you like and accessing your favorite apps quickly are some of its key features. The main feature that drives the Launcher is Google Now. The feature gives you all the information at the right time such as nearby restaurants, information on flights, and so much more. Also the hands free assistance is a really big key feature too.
ZTE didn’t just unveil the Blade Vec 4G, they also unveiled the Grand S II. The device comes hailing with a 5.5 inch display and has a Snapdragon 801 processor. The handset has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. The rear camera on the device is a 13MP and the battery is a 3100mAh. The downside to this upgraded device is that it runs on Android 4.3 with ZTE’s own software sitting on top. ZTE is also getting into the health game with their own fitness band called the Grand Band. The Band keeps track of certain health information and can take your pulse, and it will also launch later this year in different colors. Now that we have another pure Android device roaming the Chinese market, let us know what you think about the handset in the comments below. Also what do you think about the Grand S II and ZTE’s soon to be unveiled fitness band?
