ZTE Open


The Firefox phone comes to the UK. Is this £60 'web' phone worth a punt?

Web-based Firefox OS platform easy to create apps for, Very cheap for a full smartphone, Non-premium app culture

Inaccurate touch keyboard, Low-resolution screen, Mediocre camera with no flash

ZTE Open review


The first Firefox phone takes a bow

Firefox OS isn't even in its infancy yet, but it's clear that Mozilla, operators and manufacturers have one thing in mind for the OS - budget handsets for developing markets. The ZTE Open is a colourful, cheap option, although it's hardly iOS- or...

ZTE's Open is an attractive smartphone that represents Firefox OS's budget aspirations.

Hardware performance suffers all across the board, from image quality to the time it takes to complete a task. Call quality wasn't so hot, either.

Skip the ZTE Open and keep hunting for your low-cost smartphone, unless simplicity or Firefox development are at the top of your list.

ZTE Open (Unlocked)


We're giving the unlocked ZTE Open with the Firefox OS huge points for its very reasonable price, but the software needs more polish before it's consumer-ready.

Very inexpensive for an unlocked smartphone. Robust Web browser.

Unfinished software. Dim screen. Poor camera and GPS.

That restriction—no DRM (and no plugins)—creates some problems for Web video. The Firefox OS has a working YouTube app, but sites like Netflix and failed to stream video because the browser couldn't handle their proprietary video plug-ins.
