*Update* the Grand X Plus Z826 actually comes with 2GB of RAM, not 1GB like I stated originally.
In late 2013, an interesting trend emerged in the marketplace; Motorola released the Moto G which was the first relatively inexpensive phone that didn’t suck.
The bar was raised In 2014; for the same money you could now pick up something with a quad-core processor, 5” HD display and a 8 megapixel autofocus camera: I’m talking phones like the ZTE Grand X (Z933 - Canadian version) or the Blu Studio 5.0C HD
Later in 2014 we got different permutations on this formula; The HTC Desire 510 and Nokia Lumia 635 added LTE but they forced you to give up the 5” HD display and 8 megapixel camera. LTE makes these phones more attractive to carriers but as far as I’m concerned, trading these 2 features to get LTE is just not worth it.
Now we have the ZTE Grand X Plus (Z826). With the Plus you get a 5” display, 8 megapixel camera, quad-core processor AND LTE. You don’t have to make any compromises! You get all this for $200 from Fido
