Price comparison

Design

1.thickness

8.6mm

6.8mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
2.width

70.5mm

69.5mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
3.height

142mm

142mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.volume

86.09cm³

67.11cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

1.pixel density

294ppi

294ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

720 x 1280px

720 x 1280px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
3.screen size

5"

5"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Alcatel A3
ZTE Blade X7
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
5.has an IPS screen
Alcatel A3
ZTE Blade X7
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
6.has a touch screen
Alcatel A3
ZTE Blade X7
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 1.25GHz

4 x 1.3GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

1.5GB

2GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
Alcatel A3
ZTE Blade X7
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

16GB

16GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.Has integrated LTE
Alcatel A3 (MediaTek MT6737)
ZTE Blade X7 (MediaTek MT6735)
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
6.semiconductor size

28nm

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

13MP

13MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

5MP

5MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

1080 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
4.Has a dual-tone LED flash
Alcatel A3
ZTE Blade X7
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.
5.has a built-in HDR mode
Alcatel A3
ZTE Blade X7
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
6.has a flash
Alcatel A3
ZTE Blade X7
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.

Audio

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Alcatel A3
ZTE Blade X7
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.Has a radio
Alcatel A3
ZTE Blade X7
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
3.number of microphones

2

2

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.battery power

2460mAh

2200mAh

Battery power, also called battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy stored in the battery. Measured in milliampere-hours (mAh), it indicates how much electric power can be used over time. More battery power translates into longer battery life.
2.Has an ultra power-saving mode
ZTE Blade X7 (Android 5.0 Lollipop)
The ultra power-saving mode, also called low power mode, is an effective way to extend the battery life of the device. Usually, it involves limiting screen brightness and contrast, disabling location services, restricting connectivity, and turning off nonessential apps.
3.has a battery level indicator
Alcatel A3
ZTE Blade X7
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
4.has a rechargeable battery
Alcatel A3
ZTE Blade X7
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
