zte-grand-x-9814

ZTE Grand X, December 2014

Though it’s competitively priced off-contract, the Grand X is hardly worth the trouble. Its dual-core processor is glacial, its low-res touchscreen isn’t responsive to the touch, and it ships with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box.

Posh Orion Pro X500 , December 2014

Aimed toward emerging smartphone markets and users on a budget, the Orion Pro X500 is inexpensive and has dual SIM card slots. Unfortunately, its poor 5-megapixel camera, hefty build, and fuzzy 5-inch display outweigh its pros.

 

huawei-ascend-y550-5

Huawei Ascend Y550 , November 2014
