Aaron gets some hands-on time with the ZTE Era at CTIA 2012 in New Orleans.  The smartphone offers a 1.3 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU, 4.3-inch display with 540x960 pixels, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, and Android 4.0 - known as Ice Cream Sandwich.  It's a device that would be a nice addition to a carrier's lineup in the United States, perhaps as a low-cost alternative.

Robert Salender All I know is some Chinese dude hacked the Google Play Rating System when Facebook 1.9.1 was out.
Reinaldo Alvarez Maldonado Looks like a good product i think at this point my Droid 3 is an old clunk piece of metal lol
Nathan Parks They should stick to mbb devices.
Jesse Ling actually zte warp uses a gorilla glass screen :p
Wendy Lindop Cheap with rubbish screens.
Dan Hammen From seeing the issues family members have had with both of those brands they do nothing good for the android name.
Ellery Arellano We are a country full of brand label snobs. No wonder we never get the good stuff here. I wouldn't mind giving those companies a try. Look at HTC. No one's really heard of them in the early 2000's and look how far they've come.
Leeming Wong Horrible
Nadia Merhai Bought an AT&T Avail for my preteen and I have to say that ZTE phone out of box outperformed my mytouch 4g from HTC out of the box from the get-go. It cost me 70 bucks on ebay (retails for $100-$129) for the new ZTE phone, everything has worked flawlessly on it despite the lack of adobe flash (also does not have camera flash). I told my kid I'm temped to take it away from her for my own use. Was pleasantly surprised. Also, to the poster that mention the Huaweis as a disappointment replacement mytouch product, I'm right there with you. Won't buy anymore from the mytouch line for sure. With HTC there were a few bugs I could live with. I don't want to know what Huaweis will do to it.
Joey Colossus Jenrette Better than Samsung...please
Manas Sharma They make better handsets than Samsung.
Mike Cooper Would rather be raped in an alley than use either
Ray Gramata They have potential. They bring in new features, ideas and things that the top contenders lack/don't always have.
Orlando Alexander They have to prove themselves first before I can take any interest in them.
Cody Brush Huaweis Mercury phone is actually really good. The Ascend and Ascend 2 suck though. Also any Zte phone out sucks
Jesse Ling Screw huawei,however ste is a decent company,barely generic.perfect axample;zte warp.25% of the reviews on it later update to say that its experiencing all kinds of glitches.good devices that quite simply need to be made to a better standard of quality and reliability.
Aaron Chen They actually do a lot of work on network towers so they're not really unknown
Abram Wenevermet Dennis Never heard of them..
April L Angelo Without using them my gut instinct is that they suck. I'm really disappointed that T-Mobile chose Huawei for the next MyTouch devices. HTC to Samsung to Huawei...bad choice!
Caleb Arauz Hey guys I just found out a cool new way to make? money with an app i found. Its called "apptrailers"This app gives you free gift cards when you discover new codes. I found one code called "thefinisher" which gives you 10$ worth of gift card money! You can download it on the Android Market or on the App store. I am not lying and this is not spam. Tell your friends about this for easy money!
Cory Wood Pathetic! I'll pass!
Aydemir Ilker The huawei ascend d quad xl looks great with a huge battery.
Arvydas Gr They both suck
Nick Petrizzio if the phones do not suck and last, fine
