Features, Performance, and Reviews for the ZTE V5 Lux

ZTE V5 Lux's size

The ZTE V5 Lux is 2.8 inches (71 mm) wide, 5.5 inches (139 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (9 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the ZTE V5 Lux, it weighs about 165 oz (165 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the ZTE V5 Lux, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

ZTE V5 Lux's screen

The ZTE V5 Lux has a 5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The resolution of the ZTE V5 Lux's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The camera function of ZTE V5 Lux

The ZTE V5 Lux has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The ZTE V5 Lux comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of ZTE V5 Lux

The ZTE V5 Lux's battery capacity is 2400 mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the ZTE V5 Lux has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

The CPU performance of ZTE V5 Lux

The processing performance of the ZTE V5 Lux is quite low at 1.2GHz×4(Quad core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The ZTE V5 Lux only has 1GB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the ZTE V5 Lux's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

ZTE V5 Lux's storage capacity

The ZTE V5 Lux has 8GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the ZTE V5 Lux is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of ZTE V5 Lux

The ZTE V5 Lux is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
