Camera Testing:

The camera on the ZTE Grand X 4 is a nice upgrade from preview “Grand” devices we’ve looked at from them. As I mentioned before, the rear camera is a 13MP shooter and the front camera tops out at 5MP. As is standard, the camera app supports things like smile detection, timer, digital zoom, geo-tagging, exposure compensation, HDR and Panorama modes. ZTE also brings other features like ISO control, white balance and shutter speed to the mix – which many companies leave out of their stock camera apps.

The samples below have been shot with the camera app and haven’t been retouched in any way at all. They have been pulled off the camera and uploaded at full resolution for you to enjoy. Click on the images below to view them on Google Plus with the ability to zoom to full-resolution.

As far as video goes, the ZTE Grand X 4 is much like its predecessors and is a very basic shooter. It has the ability to use filters, but resolution is limited to a maximum of 1080p and the fastest framerate is 30fps. It's not bad by all means, but it's not a crazy video-phone.

On the next page, we'll touch briefly on a few other tidbits and then post up our conclusion.
