The legendary ZTE U950 phone
Today, it is rarely possible to notice surprise on the faces of people who have heard about the quad-core processor in a smartphone. However, despite this factor, it is the processor with four cores that today is the standard of high performance and functionality. Today, a large number of manufacturers of mobile gadgets are increasingly producing smartphones with such a 4-stroke heart, which can significantly increase the performance of the device as a whole. Chinese manufacturers are also not far behind, which in the fourth quarter of the year presented a lot of such models and continue to present now. Perhaps the most striking of them was the ZTE U950 model, which was developed by the company and manufacturer Beidou of the same name. The highlight of the device is that a powerful Nvidia Tegra 3 processor is built inside it, and the price of the new product does not exceed the border of 200 usd. Nevertheless, to make sure how productive this small device is, let's take a closer look at its characteristics.
ZTE U950 Smartphone Overview
Externally, the device has a fairly budget look. This is due not only to the relatively small screen, but also to the thick frame around it. In addition, the manufacturer, apparently, decided that we should not bother with the design, because the smartphone has such powerful characteristics. As a result, it turned out that the front panel was not made high enough: there are a lot of shades and bonds on it. The same can be said about the rear panel. Moreover, it looks more like the back side of a budget fake case than a part of the smartphone case on the Nvidia Tegra 3. However, the rest of the case does not have any extra parts, buttons and connectors.
By tradition, the device is equipped with two cameras: front and main. Here again, the low price affects. The main camera has a resolution of 5 megapixels, while the front camera is only 0.3. Such permissions not only do not allow taking pictures of the minimum quality, but also fully communicate via video. And this is not to mention the fact that in order to shoot video on the phone you will need maximum lighting and a tripod without fail.
Despite this factor, the device turned out to be quite popular and liked by the public. Both outside and inside there is nothing special except, of course, the Nvidia Tegra 3 chip. So, the device has a relatively small screen resolution, which is only 800 * 480 pixels. as well as a diagonal measuring just 4.3 inches. Due to this size and resolution, the device is unlikely to differ from a budget communicator. At the same time, the smartphone also runs on the old version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream, which was released a long time ago. Finally, we can say about the battery with a capacity of only 2000 mAh. In general, the characteristics are not that standard, but close to minimal.
However, this is all the first impression, because the most interesting in the hardware of the device and its high performance. So, the gadget runs on a Tegra 3 chip, has four cores in the processor and a clock frequency of 1.3 GHz, as well as 1 GB of RAM. Such optimization is already excellent, because the graphics accelerator built into the chip can withstand a fairly large screen resolution, as well as read speed. And taking into account the fact that the screen resolution is only 480 * 800 pixels, we can say with accuracy that the device in terms of performance will not only catch up, but also overtake any flagship device of our time. At the same time, a not entirely successful appearance will go unnoticed.
