Mid-range pulling to high
Today we are going to leave a bit of side labels with more zeros than common sense, and are going to focus on a rather more affordable terminal, while remaining practical and capable. We are talking about the ZTE Blade S6, the latest release of the Chinese brand for the range market medium/high.
To speak of it, should begin by mentioning its price. There are many phones on sale with characteristics similar to the of the ZTE Blade S6, but very few are able to match your price: 220 euros.
We are talking about a powerful enough Android terminal to cope with a medium or even advanced user. If you do not want to watch videos in high quality, nor especially demanding applications, can you find in the ZTE Blade S6 perfect phone.
Starting with aesthetics. Yes, it seems Samsung Galaxy S6 and the iPhone 6, but in the industry almost all terminals are betting on the same standards: curved edges, central button, side buttons...
Because that's another thing: is also well stocked in design. It seems, style is another strong point of the ZTE Blade S6, which feel quite well the silver-colored, soft curves and that single central circle.
Design: metal seems, plastic is
Aside from the detail of the plastic, by the appearance of the ZTE Blade S6 well we could be talking about a terminal high-end. Soft edges curve fits perfectly with of the screen, so that the phone seems a single piece made of different material.
In addition, in interior trim, very well hidden, also are the two side buttons of Android: develop and draw. We say hidden because they are only with LED backlight. In addition, better you learn what each: the right is menu and the left kick.
SIM and SD slots are hidden, and we will need a stick to be able to access them. In addition, as a curiosity, the phone is Dual SIM despite not having two slots: two cards are put on the same tray.
Hardware and components
As for the screen, we talk about an IPS (from the first of ZTE) 5 inch with a resolution 1280 x 720. Indeed, compared to other phones on the market is poor, but the truth is that the majority of users don't explode the real possibilities of a FullHD display. Seen thus, and taking into account that lack of definition is only noticeable if you are looking for specifically, the ZTE Blade S6 screen is not a problem.
Another positive point is the battery. 2,400 milliamps very well managed, that have kept us the phone in standby for 5 days and follow with a 40% charge. That Yes, a full standby without using the ZTE Blade S6 at all: not allot with such duration as a rule.
Of course, we have taken a back by Antutu, and the result has been clear:
|Xperia Z Ultra||33.654|
|ZTE Blade S6||30.229|
|G Motorola Moto||17.572|
|LG G3 S||17.057|
|Samsung Galaxy S4||24.606|
CamerasAlthough the performance is usually quite adequate. Once more ZTE has been able to rely on who should, and Sony has left the issue of sensor. The ZTE Blade S6 mounted IMX214 that we had seen in the new models of the Nexus 6.
Generally performs pretty well in lit environments, and pretty poorly indoors or at night. As for the app itself, it is nice to finally see a device that it fails 15 seconds loading before you can make a photograph: is quite faster than we expected.
To end with cameras, a detail that we loved. Do you know the function of "mesh" Photoshop"? As the people of ZTE has developed a similar option for the camera, which will allow us to bring to the front as if it were a scan. Here's a simple example:
Softwate: Lollipop with pint of iOS
In any case, as we say, Android customization layer gives the appearance of a simple iOS, as it is often the case in the Chinese smartphone.
For example, if you take the ZTE Blade S6, you put it to looking at the roof a couple of seconds and then drawing with a "V" in the air, we will access the music, and if we draw one or enormous, pausaremos it. Don't talk about a figure we can do with the doll, but a genuine "or" giant worthy of a cheerleader in a football game.
Aside from this, it has some details that Yes liked us, as the shortcuts that open by sliding the finger from the top edge up.
It is true that the Chinese market is much more advanced in this area than the European or American. What saved in r & d and production lines at its has allowed them to get ahead when it comes to place their products on the market.
As you may have seen by the tone of the analysis, the truth is that it has left us with a very good taste. There are details that do not end up convincing, but no great garrafal failure that leave us in the lurch.
