Every day, new brands of technological devices create and develop their own versions of the latest gadgets to compete against established brands. The Huawei Valiant and ZTE Supreme are just two of these products which offer their unique take on the current innovation of gadgets and devices today. Both of these products were released just a few weeks ago and consumers still have a lot of time to weigh the pros and cons in deciding whether they want to try these new brands. Let us take a look at the comparison of their specifications.
Design and Build
The Huawei Valiant is built at 4 inches of diagonal physical size while measuring at 126 x 64 x 11 mm and weighing at 140 g. Considering these numbers, this smartphone only has an average physique. Also, to provide comfort for its users, it has curves on each corner.
The ZTE Supreme, on the other hand, has 142 x 71 x 10 mm of dimensions and 153 g of weight. It is diagonally 5 inches which makes a big display out of it. It is available in two colors of black and blue while it also has similar curvy edges to provide comfort for carrying.
In terms of the display settings, the Huawei Valiant has both a capacitive and multi-touch screen by TFT LCD technology. It is protected by a scratch proof glass courtesy of the Corning Gorilla Glass. It has 480 x 800 pixels of screen resolution while other features include light as well as proximity sensors.
On the contrary, the ZTE Supreme is sporting an IPS LCD technology that is both capacitive and multi-touch. It has a high resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels with a pixel density of 294 ppi. It has its own light sensors, proximity sensors and scratch proof glass.
Operating System and Hardware
Like most of the other devices in the current market, the Huawei Valiant exhibits an Android version 4.1 operating system and Candybar form factor. Hardware wise, this handset works on a Dual core 1000 MHz fast processor with an integrated graphics processor on its own. The internal storage comes at 4GB with 1.9GB of user storage. It is still available for expansion via the memory card slot which is compatible with MicroSD and MicroSDHC at a maximum size of 32GB. The battery is a removable Li-Ion 1750 mAh which can last for 10 hours of talk time.
Meanwhile, the ZTE Supreme also has a similar Android version 4.1 operating system as well as a Candybar form factor. It works with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8225 chipset and Dual core 1500 MHz Krait central processing unit with its own integrated graphical interface. It contains 768MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage with a maximum of 2GB user storage. The memory card slot is compatible with MicroSD, MicroSDHC and MicroSDXC with up to a 64GB size. The battery is a Li-Ion 2500 mAh which can stay alive up to 15 hours of talk time.
Camera, Multimedia and Connectivity
When it comes to imagery, the Valiant mobile phone by Huawei has a primary camera at the back which takes photos at only an average quality of 3MP. It also comes with its own fixed focus. The camcorder captures scenes at only 15 frames per second which produces videos at a low resolution of 480 p quality. Additional multimedia options include an MP3 music player as well as MPEG4, H.263 and H.264 video playback. It has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS positioning but no LTE connectivity.
With a huge difference, the ZTE Supreme showcases a 13MP primary camera at the back and 1.2MP secondary camera at the front. It has its own LED flash, back-illuminated sensor or BSI and panorama. The camcorder captures video at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 which means that the clips will be at 1080p HD quality. In addition, the multimedia options include a music player compatible with MP3, AAC, AAC+, WAV, AMR and MIDI as well as video playback for MPEG4, H.263 and H.264 file types. Connectivity technology includes LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS positioning.
The Valiant has a smaller and lighter physique and this may come as an advantage in terms of mobility purposes, it comes as a disadvantage when it comes to the quality of display. It has a respectable hardware but the shorter battery hours and poorer camera features deduct a few points. Huawei could have added a little more unique specifications and accomplished a much better device. On the other hand, the ZTE Supreme has a bigger display, similarly respectable chipset, larger storage and certainly better camera features. And even though it has a heavier build, it is not necessarily that bad if compared to its more useful functions. So, it seems that the Supreme is better than the Huawei Valiant. As a customer, what will it take for you to buy this device?
