(Updated to correct typo in title.)

Our tour through ZTE’s CES presence isn’t over just yet, as we’d be remiss if we didn’t stop to check out the company’s just-announced (well, last week, at least) phablet, the aptly-named Iconic Phablet.

When we first heard about the Iconic Phablet, we didn’t have much to go on; ZTE revealed a 5.7-inch 720p display – which while pressing the limits of what manufacturers can get away with before switching to 1080p, is still something we can live with – along with support for wireless charging. We also knew to look for Dolby Digital support, but that still left plenty of questions. Well, what better way to answer them than with some hands-on time with the hardware itself?

Does Samsung have anything to worry about from ZTE’s new phablet offering? Take a look to see what we thought of the phone:
