Our very own HC - NO "i"
just handed my his review for the ZTE F160. No, it doesn't have a 5" 4K display, 16 core processor or 8GB of RAM with dodeca-band LTE support. Instead, it's a feature phone (AKA dumbphone). Here it is:
It's inevitable. Now that smartphones have out shipped feature phones for the first time
. Mundane usage like voice calls and even SMS are declining for many subscribers as these activities are being replaced by social networking (e.g. Facebook, Google+), on-the-top messaging (e.g. WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger) and VoIP calls (e.g. Skype, Google Talk).
Here at HoFo, we mostly focus on smartphones these days. Smartphones like my brand spanking new Samsung Galaxy S 4
which is the very definition of ‘all the bell and whistles’.
So when I told my fellow HC
that I wanted to check out the F160 candy bar handset from ZTE, he wondered if I was really serious.
