Aaron unboxes and takes a first look at the ZTE Director, a budget Android phone from US Cellular.  Featuring a 1 GHz single-core Snapdragon S2 CPU, 3.5-inch display, 3-megapixel camera with flash, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.  It's as low-end as you can get in 2013 - from a specifications perspective, it's nothing to shake a stick at - but it continues to bring ZTE into the limelight in the US smartphone marketplace.  There's a use case here for the first-time smartphone owner or perhaps for the teenager, but with it, the usual question comes to light: is it worth signing up for one of these for two years, or splurging just a bit and picking up something like the Samsung Galaxy S III or HTC One?
