While the rest of the sheet is more modest, typical of the mid-range, this component excels in both size and resolution headed for a slightly higher range. It is a TFT panel with a diagonal of 4.3 inches, a size large enough to see clearly but content while not overly large.The resolution is qHD, or what is the same, 960 x 540 pixels. With this concentrated distribution panel 256 pixels per inch to ensure good sharpness, the catch is that only plays 262,000 colors. Note also that, just as most current smartphones, the display type is capacitive , meaning it responds to gentle gestures with one or more fingers to press without us.
How could it be otherwise, the ZTE Grand XM does not lack the necessary connections to take advantage of all the benefits of a smartphone. On one hand the Internet connection can be made through 3G mobile networks , which in this case will reach a maximum download speed of 7.2 Mbps and upload up to 5.76-, although we can connect through Wi -Fi whenever we are near an open access point or to know the password, for example at home, and with this system is far greater speed and save 3G data step.

The most common is to use the card to store photos, videos or music and applications that can be installed in external memory.
