The Chinese have been very innovative, it is always bewildering the way they manage to compress great spec into a phone and sell it a very cheap prices. Even the smart watches we have now- that will probably cost you an arm or leg to buy- Buying a Chinese equivalent will save you lots of cash, though we may doubt how long it will last, but that’s a discussion for another day.


ZTE has just announced a budget device called the ZTE Xiao Xian 2 or B880 (in other regions) carrying the following specs:


  • 5.0-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen display, resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, with 256PPI
  • 1.3 GHz Quad-Core MediaTek MT6735 processor (64-bits)
  • Mali-T720 GPU
  • Android v5.0 Lollipop
  • 13 MP Autofocus Rear camera with LED Flash, F/2.2 Sensor
  • 8 MP Front camera
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB Internal memory, Expandable Up To 32 GB
  • Li-Ion 2400 mAh battery

That’s not all, this phone has a finger print scanner at the back (notice the round ring below the camera) and it’s priced at $144 that’s approximately N30,000 in Nigerian currency. Brilliant!! It’s just sad phone like this don’t make their way to this part of the world. Thumbs Up ZTE!!



  1. Great specs for a budget phone.I desire to own one.China is really moving faster than expected to catch up with the advanced countries.

  2. *trying to imitate Eye_Bee_Kay*
    Fingerprint scanner?…no, thanks.

    These days the focus of phone manufacturing has shifted from what we need to turning what we WANT into what we need.

    //Thumbs up, ZTE!//

    For what? Give us what we need, phones that meet our daily needs, not all these gimmicks!

    They should have as well put 8GB RAM on this one.


  3. 8GB RAM? Well, something’s got to give, and that fingerprint scanner doesn’t come cheap. I’m sure there’s a 16GB scanner-free version.

    The one good thing to come from this, is that its introduction by ZTE will open the door to other, less expensive devices with finger print scanning. Whether it’s accurate or not is another matter.
