ZTE Skate Smartphone Review

Communicator ZTE Skate was announced in February 2011. The smartphone turned out to be quite decent: large screen, good stuffing, low price. Phone ZTE Skate can now be bought for ~ 9,000 rubles (this is the price of March 2012).


Apparatus by dimensions pretty decent 126x68x10.5 mm, and weighs as much as 120 grams. But, when compared with other modern devices, it does not particularly stand out among them in size. The phone case is made in the form of monoblock, the material is plastic.

The build quality is pretty good: no creaks or backlash.

Processor and OS

The smartphone operates on the basis of a 1-core processor with a clock speed of 800 MHz, which is rather modest by modern standards.

The device runs on the Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread operating system without any additional shell, as on some other devices.

For ZTE Skate, I did not have a performance test , but judging by the slowdown of the Angry Birds game, it is not very high. Well, what do you want for this price?


The ZTE Skate has 512 MB of RAM.

Built-in flash memory in the device also provides 512 MB, but if you take away the cost of internal needed, then the user will have only about 30 MB. But the kit immediately comes with a 2-gigabyte memory card microSD.

Communicative Features

The following types of communication are available in the smartphone to access the Internet: 3G and Wi-Fi. There are no complaints for this apparatus.

There is a built-in HTML browser and an e-mail client.
