ZTE Warp Elite Review & Specs

ZTE Warp Elite is a decent phone launched a couple of years ago, in 2015, with a quite powerful 1.2 GHz CPU, a 5.5 inches multi touch screen, a 13 megapixels back side camera and a 5 megapixels front camera.

This cellphone comes with a fast processor running at 1200 MHz with a great 2 GB RAM memory. A good advantage of this phone is its quite large 16 GB internal storage and a slot for external memory cards, allowing the user to install a couple hundred games and applications without running out of space.

ZTE has made a very nice optimization job making the ZTE Warp Elite as lightweight as 5.31 oz. The ZTE Warp Elite is just 0.33″ thick, making its way into the thinnest cellphones podium. The ZTE Warp Elite is quite a compact phone, considering it features a 5.5 inches screen and it’s only 6.23 inches long. This cellphone is available only in color black.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 13 MP back facing camera and a 5 mega-pixels front-facing camera. To complete the camera, it also includes a couple of interesting characteristics like flash, geo tagging and auto-focus.

The ZTE Warp Elite includes a very good 5.5-inches screen with a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, which makes it hard to distinguish the pixels that compose the screen.

This device provides WiFi capability (but it can’t share it with other devices around, acting as a router or modem) or LTE 4G fast data connection. This phone doesn’t use a sim card, because it doesn’t work with GSM services.

The ZTE Warp Elite also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.1), GPS and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

The ZTE Warp Elite packs a 3000 mAh big Li – Polymer non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with an impressive battery life. An issue to take into account is that the ZTE Warp Elite’s battery isn’t replaceable so you can’t change it when it starts losing capacity, whereas with this big battery you will probably replace this cellphone before it becomes an issue.
