The ZTE Blade A450 is a new entry phone that will arrive in Spain at the hands of Jazztel . A terminal bet format 5 inches with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels , processor four cores or internal memory of 8 GB . But above all, this model stands out for two characteristics that increase its appeal. On the one hand, it is compatible with 4G networks of up to 150 Mbps , so we can navigate at high speed in this type of network that is being deployed very quickly in Spain. On the other hand, it includes a large 3,400 milliamp batterywhich will become the largest capacity in its category. At the moment we do not have official confirmation on your departure date or your price with Jazztel. At the moment we tell you all its technical characteristics in a thorough analysis.
Design and display
The ZTE Blade A450 sports a simple design, without great fanfare, with a classic bar format. It is made of polycarbonate and will hit the market in two different configurations, one in black and the other in white that gives it a slightly more modern touch. Her measurements are placed in 143 x 72.8 x 10.2 mm , with a weight of 167 grams. It is a figure that is well above what we usually find in models of this size, but the explanation lies in the powerful battery of this phone. The Blade A450 bets on the 5-inch format, a size that has almost become a market standard for many entry-level and mid-range models. Resolution amounts to 850 x 480 pixels , with a density of 196 dots per inch . This resolution is below what we usually find in these models, but it will serve us without problems in simple apps and games.
The photographic section of this ZTE model is quite humble. On the back we have a 5 megapixel lens , autofocus and LED flash . This camera is also capable of recording video in 720p , and in general it should give us an average performance in our photos and recordings (although without great fanfare). On the front we have a goal of 2 - megapixel that can be something right when making selfies but offer a good response in videoconferences with apps like Skype or Hangouts .
Memory and power
To run Android processes and apps, the ZTE Blade A450 uses a MediaTek MT6732M processor with four cores and a power of 1.3 GHz per core . This chip joins a 1 GB RAM memory to create a fairly limited set, although we should not have a problem in normal use of the equipment. On the other hand, the internal memory of this equipment is 8 GB . According to the company's own data, the space that we will have to store our files is around 4.5 GB, subtracting the system and the pre-installed applications. If this space falls short we can use a MicroSD memory card of up to 32 GB,or bet on an online storage system such as Dropbox or OneDrive .
Operating system and applications
The Blade A450 will ship with Android 4.4.4 KitKat . It is one of the latest versions of Google's operating system , although here we may miss that the company had opted for Android 5.0 Lollipop (which has been circulating in the market for a few months now). Still, we have access to most of the functions of this platform and its entire universe of applications. One of the most interesting novelties that KitKat brought is a notable improvement in the performance of the menus and processes, especially in those teams that are more technically limited. This will come in handy for the ZTE Blade A450. In addition, every time we listen to a song we will see its cover on the lock screen of the mobile.
Android means access to a very extensive universe of both free and paid applications. The official Google store has already passed the figure of a million and a half different titles, with a very complete offer that includes names such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Line, Candy Crush Saga or Clash of Clans , to give a few examples. In reality, the variety and quality of apps will allow us to customize this phone to our liking and create a unique user experience for each user. In addition to the apps in the store, we must also highlight the weight of Google's own tools, with apps like YouTube to view our favorite videos, Google Maps to get anywhere or Gmailto manage all our email.
Within the field of connections, its great attraction is its ability to connect to high-speed 4G networks of up to 150 Mbps. It is a type of network that has been deployed very quickly in Spain and other parts of the world, and each time manufacturers are more abundant that bet on launching compatible entry models. In places where there is no 4G coverage, we can also connect to 3G HSPA + networks with speeds of up to 42 Mbps . The connection to the network is completed with WiFi connectivity . Other connections of the equipment include Bluetooth 4.0 to synchronize compatible devices, GPS to navigate and locate ourselves on the map and a MicroUSB portto carry out the load.
Autonomy, price and opinions
One of the great surprises that this model leaves us is its powerful 3,400 milliamp battery . To put it in perspective, this is a greater capacity than phablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 have . Although this has an impact on greater weight, it is appreciated that there are manufacturers who bet on durability rather than increasingly thin designs. According to ZTE , this mobile will be able to offer up to 600 minutes in 2G conversation (which does not seem too much to us) and up to 500 hours in rest. At the moment we do not have an official release date or price, although it should not take long to reach the market (probably this month). In short, a team that has a very clear commitment to the battery and 4G connectivity , and which sacrifices somewhat the rest of the technical characteristics.
