What we learn from this device launch and what special in this device ?
So you wonder what special out in this ZTE Blade S6 device. Yeah it’s the delicious lollipop operating system that the device comes loaded with. It’s a world known fact that the Cyanogen team brings update to android devices all around the world even before the official manufacturer does. The ZTE blade s6 has struck the chord there and has brought lollipop to this Snapdragon 615 64bit processor loaded device even before the CyanogenMod team has done for the Yu yureka, a device that the CyanogenMod team supports commercially. So it is an awesome work from the ZTE team isn’t it ?
The device is priced slightly at a high rate around 250$ which almost close to double the price of the Yu yureka. Still it isn’t a bad choice as we see and as always the performance of the phone has to be seen once it comes out to the users as this comes with the Lollipop version of android which is pretty buggy even in the official google devices like the Nexus
