ZTE Grand X v970m sports dual SIM, 4.3″ screen and sells for PHP 9,990

It’s front face nondescript, the ZTE Grand X v970m or simply the “ZTE Grand X” adds serious competition to the growing range of mid-market Android phones with specs ready to take on the demands of current-generation apps and services. Turn the phone around and you’ll see the enigmatic ZTE logo. Surprising as it is, ZTE is upping their game with a stable of new devices catering to more demanding users at affordable prices.

At such an attractive price point of only PHP 9,990.00, the Grand X sits at the “definitely must buy” if you want to maximize your Christmas bonus.

More photos and complete specs after the jump.

PRICE: PHP 9,990

1GHz dual core processor
Dual SIM capabilities
4.3-inch 540×960 QHD screen
main 5MP camera (no front camera)
4GB Internal Storage; expandable to 32GB (comes with 4GB microSD card)
Android 4 ICS

Checking out all the other sites that have published press material on this phone, they do make mention of a streamlined “race car” design to this phone. It’s true — and I have to add that after booting it up and syncing my cloud details, I’m pleased to report that the v970m’s main selling point is the overall package. It doesn’t oversell itself: the combination of the 1GHz dual core processor, generous memory (it comes with a 4GB microSD card) and decently loud audio are necessities by today’s standards. Perhaps the only thing it lacks is a front-facing camera for video calls, but to be quite honest, I’m all for turning the phone around with the better camera. And really — the price — the sub PHP 10k positioning is 100% ace.
