Editor's Review of the F930
The ZTE F930 sports a minimal but sleek design. Elegance for this mobile phone comes with the white colour of its casing that adds a sense of class to the handset. It is comparatively smaller as well, measuring at 106 millimetres long by 46 millimetres wide and less than 13 millimetres thick. At 90 grams, it is very light in weight.
The front features the 2.4 inch resistive touch screen. Beneath the touch screen, there are only three physical buttons on the front end. The back is similarly bare except for the speaker slot and the camera.
This quad band mobile phone can also be used on any GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 network. It allows for SMS, MMS, and e-mail messaging.
The ZTE F930 also sports a 3 megapixel camera that is capable of capturing photos with resolutions of up to 2048 pixels wide and 1536 pixels long. Taking pictures at night is also not a problem with its dual LED light. The built-in camera can also capture videos and has a zoom capability.
This phone can connect to any GPRS, HSDPA, and EDGE network. Further, this mobile phone can easily connect with other Bluetooth enabled handsets and devices. You could also download any files from your desktop or laptop computer using the USB port.
The F930 also has easy access shortcuts to various social networking sites like Facebook and connects you easily to the sites rather than using apps to do the same thing. Depending on your network, you could easily get free calls with the handset's built-in Skype app.
This handset's internal memory is pegged at 150 megabytes, which is about enough to store all your call logs and phone book contacts. However, the ZTE F930 is also a great media player and you would need more storage for your music, video and picture files. For your storage needs, you could just buy a microSD card that you could pop into the F930's card slot and enjoy additional storage of up to 8 gigabytes.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with ZTE, it is a Chinese company that deals in network solutions and telecommunications equipment. They have been in close partnership with major telecommunications companies in China, as well as international telecommunications service providers such as Vodafone, Telefonica, France Telecom, and Telstra.
Internet connectivity on this phone would have been perfect if wireless connectivity was provided, but the 3G compatibility more than makes up for it.
The 2.4 inch touch screen is admittedly a tad too small compared to the screens seen on other similar mobile phones, but it is acceptable for Web browsing. The resistive panel, however, is much less responsive than capacitive types. In fact, within minutes of using the F930's touch screen display, you would find that you would certainly need the stylus that is included in the package. Without it, your accuracy suffers greatly.
Sadly, however, the ZTE F930 comes at a time when other manufacturers are also coming up with low priced mobile phones that have more interesting features packed in and sports a similar easy access system to most social networking sites. You only need to compare the features on the LG Cookie Fresh and find that this phone is very much lacking. For one, Samsung's Genio Touch and LG's Cookie Fresh have armed itself with the ability to add and modify widgets. ZTE's version does not have that.
Also, a mobile phone at this price range and features mix could easily appeal to the younger market. But ZTE fails to consider this. Instead of eye-catching and vibrant colours for its casing, the Chinese company opted for a white background. You might argue that this sets the ZTE F930 apart from its competitors and would corner those teenagers who do not really care for wild and wacky colours.
