Nokia Lumia 735 Features


The Nokia Lumia 735 comes with a mission: it is advertised as a 'selfie' phone, one with higher-res front-facing camera to allow you taking even better pictures of yourself. It's a 5-megapixel front shooter with a wide-angle lens that does that, plus, the phone has also got a 6.7-megapixel rear camera. For all else, this is a fairly typical Windows Phone 8.1 mid-ranger for late-2014: it's got a 4.7" 720p ClearBlack OLED display, Snapdragon 400 system chip, 1GB of RAM, and 8 gigs of internal storage. The difference with the otherwise almost identical Lumia 730 is that the 735 features 4G LTE connectivity and only one SIM card. via

The ZTE Star 2


The ZTE Star 2 features a 5-inch, 1080 x 1920 resolution display (or 441 ppi) with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset with four cores clocked at 2.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of built-in, expandable storage. The rear camera on board is a 13-megapixel Sony sensor with dual LED flash, while a 5-megapixel selfie snapper with 88-degree wide-angled lens taking the front. The device is encased within an aluminum alloy frame and has pretty small (0.05 in / 1.18 mm) bezels. Beyond the flagship-worthy hardware packed within the Star 2, ZTE has also included system-wide voice control, allowing you to use the phone essentially hands-free. via
