ZTE Flash with Android ICS available at Sprint now
The third largest US mobile carrier is selling the Flash for $129.99 on contract, after a $50 mail-in rebate. The handset’s price without contract is $449.99.
Since the Flash comes with a 12.6MP rear camera, Sprint is presenting it as offering the “best-in-class camera at a reasonable price.” Of course, more megapixels don’t always offer a superior image quality, and I’m pretty sure that other cameras (like the 8MP one found on the Samsung Galaxy S III) are better than the 12MP unit of the ZTE Flash. Still, for its price, the ZTE Flash is certainly a handset worth checking out.
Rear camera aside, the Flash also features a 1MP front-facing camera, LTE connectivity, a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 4.5 inch IPS display with 1280 x 720 pixels, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1780 mAh battery that should be able to provide up to 8 hours of talk-time. The smartphone runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
