CES: ZTE Flies Past Siri with Grand S II’s Voice Control
LAS VEGAS, USA – ZTE launched five smartphones and the ZTE Grand S II at the Consumer Electronics Show last week.
Climbing up the ladder from its predecessor, the Grand S II sports a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, a 13MP primary, a 2MP secondary camera and a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
The other smartphones unveiled by ZTE at the trade show include the Nubia 5S, Nubia 5S Mini and the Iconic phablet.
The major highlight of the device is its voice control feature. Unlike the Moto X, the Grand S II identifies multiple users’ voices, hence even your friends and other family members can unlock the device via speech recognition. The voice command also allows users to take photos, and a special feature called My Drive provides quicker-control on the Grand II while driving.
The ZTE Grand II has 16GB internal storage and the battery life is improved to 3000mAh from 1780mAh in the original Grand S.
