ZTE may not be a famous smartphone making company around the world but it has surely got a good hold in US market. Over the years, the company has introduced very high quality smartphones at a reasonable price to its customers. Today, we are going to review yet another great smartphone made by ZTE called ZTE Director.



One good thing about ZTE Director is that, it is a reasonably priced smartphone and offers quite respectable call quality too. However, the camera of the phone is not that good and it takes bad photos. The speaker volume during the call is not impressive as well. Still, this is a good smartphone for those people who want to buy an inexpensive phone for their use.

There is no doubt that from any angle, ZTE Director is an entry level device. While many of you may not be interested in buying this smartphone, there are a lot of people who like it as well. If you just need a smartphone for your daily use and you are not a tech savvy person then this smartphone is best option for you.


While taking a look at the design and built of ZTE Director, one can say that it looks quite similar to other entry level devices introduced by the same company. There are only three hot keys in this smartphone as compared to four hot keys in other models manufactures by ZTE.

The length of the smartphone is 4.65 inches and it is 2.46 inches wide. The thickness of the phone is only 0.48 inches. On the left side, you will find a Micro-USB port for charging and data transfer purpose and also the volume rocker as well. On the up side, there is a 3.5mm audio jack along with a Sleep/ Power button. On the right side, there is a launch button for camera so you can take instant photos.

The camera lens is situated on the back along left side that has also got a flash light as well. Just below the camera, there are two small slits that represent the audio speaker of the phone. This smartphone can support an SDCard upto 32GB. The screen size of ZTE Director is 3.5 inches and it has got 320×480 pixels resolution. One thing that I noticed while using this phone is that, its display is not that responsive. You may need to tap more than one time to perform one single action.


Android OS 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich is preinstalled in the device. The native apps like Google apps, Gmail, Google+, Latitude, Chrome, Maps and Messenger are also preinstalled in ZTE Director as well. It has got a 3 megapixel rear camera but the photo options are quite limited. You can use the digital zoom, flash and five white balances. Still, the picture quality of its camera is not impressive.

You will only like this phone if you are into entry level android smartphones. However, if you are looking for a high-end device, you should go for another company in the market.
