    If you asked me last year if I would have ever considered using a ZTE smartphone as my daily driver, I probably would have chuckled, realized you might actually be serious, then answered with a solid, "No." It's not that ZTE is a bad manufacturer. But it has never been known for high-end flagship smartphones, something I'm admittedly a sucker for. Instead, ZTE is globally known for its prepaid and budget smartphone offerings. In fact, as recent as one year ago, ZTE was in a close fight for the position as third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. It has since been surpassed by ...

    To date, essentially all manufacturers who have attempted to mimic Samsung's success with the Galaxy Note line of oversized smartphones have done so by packing as many great specifications as possible inside the phone and slapping a premium price tag on it to boot.

    (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 ...
