Features, Performance, and Reviews for the ZTE Open C

ZTE Open C's size

The ZTE Open C is 2.5 inches (64.7 mm) wide, 5.0 inches (126 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (10.8 mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the ZTE Open C, it weighs about 125 oz (125 g). The weight of this phone is such that you'll barely notice it at all even when using one-handed. As such, you shouldn't have any problems using it even for long periods of time.

Both the size and weight of the ZTE Open C make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

ZTE Open C's screen

The ZTE Open C has a 4 inch screen. It comes in a standard size, and the screen is adequate for most uses. Some users may feel that they would rather have a larger screen, however.

The screen quality of the ZTE Open C is such that images and videos can occasionally be somewhat blurry. For general usage however, it's largely not a problem.

The CPU performance of ZTE Open C

The processing performance of the ZTE Open C is quite low at 1.2GHz×2(Dual core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The ZTE Open C only has 512.0MB 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 Open C'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 Open C's storage capacity

The ZTE Open C has 4GB 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 Open C 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.

The camera function of ZTE Open C

The ZTE Open C has a 15 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 battery performance of ZTE Open C

The battery of the ZTE Open C has a capacity of 1400 mAh, which is rather low. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the ZTE Open C is not very good. It's okay if you're just using it for calls and the occasional bit of browsing, but if you're going to browse for extended periods, play games or watch videos, you want a reserve battery pack.

Overall assessment of ZTE Open C

The ZTE Open C's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits of ZTE Open C

  • It's easy to hold and you can even comfortably use it with one hand.
