The ZTE ZMAX Pro, Google Pixel, and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are three of the most popular Android phones on the market. Here’s a look at how the ZTE ZMAX Pro compares to these other top smartphones. We cover several of the important factors to each phone.
The ZTE ZMAX Pro, Google Pixel, and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are similarly sized, larger smartphones, with the ZTE ZMAX Pro coming in as the largest at 6.5 x 3.3 x 0.35 inches. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is the smallest of the three, with dimensions of 5.94 x 2.86 x 0.30 inches.
Along with the larger size, the ZTE ZMAX Pro is a little weightier at 6.7 ounces versus 5.93 ounces for the Pixel and 5.54 ounces for the S7 Edge.
If you want the largest, most affordable smartphone available, then the ZTE ZMAX Pro is for you. Its large size will probably require a more two-handed approach than other smartphones, even the ones on the larger end of the spectrum. And although it’s made of plastic, ZTE ZMAX Pro has a sturdy, solid feel in your hand that will make you forget that it’s the lowest priced option of the three.
The large six-inch LCD screen is great for streaming video. When you put the ZTE ZMAX Pro on a reliable network such as T-Mobile’s vast 4G LTE you can catch up on episodes of your favorite show from virtually anywhere with no interruptions. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and the Google Pixel measure in at 5.5 inches, and while noticeably smaller than the ZTE ZMAX Pro, their higher resolution screens give you a stunningly clear display.
Whereas the ZMAX Pro has an LCD screen, the Google Pixel and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge both have AMOLED screens, with the Samsung’s classified as a Super AMOLED. The difference between AMOLED and LCD screens has to do with light and color rendering. The AMOLED screens are generally brighter, and colors can be rendered with great clarity. However, the bottom line on screen type comes down to user preference.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has the highest screen-to-body ratio at 76.09 percent, versus about 71 percent for the Pixel and the ZMAX Pro.
The ZTE ZMAX Pro’s camera has the highest megapixel count of the three, coming in at 13 megapixels. The Google Pixel shoots 12.3 megapixels and the Samsung comes in a close third at 12 megapixels. All good smartphones have High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode, geo-tagging, autofocus, video sharing, and video calling. The ZTE ZMAX Pro can shoot time-lapse video. Like the Samsung, the ZTE has handy white balance presets and a five-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has a couple of extra camera features that the others don’t have, including picture-taking during video recording, smile detection, face detection, and optical image stabilization.
Any of these smartphones will give you sharp, high-quality photos suitable for posting on social media or making into small to medium-sized prints. The ZTE’s camera, even with its higher megapixel count, might not the best overall camera of the three, but to most users the difference is hardly noticeable.
All three phones have fingerprint-based security, and each one features an accelerometer, compass, and gyroscope. All three have voice dialing, voice recording and voice commands. For USB connectivity, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is equipped with the less popular micro USB while the ZTE and the Google Pixel have the Type-C USB port.
The Google Pixel and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge have very similar Quad-Core processors, while the ZTE ZMAX Pro is equipped with an Octa-Core 1500 MHz APM Cortex-A53, 64 bit. The ZTE and the Samsung may come 32 GB of storage (there are other storage options for the Samsung), and the Google Pixel gives you a hefty 128 GB.
The battery on the ZTE ZMAX Pro gives you 25 hours of talk time and about 400 hours of standby time. Of course, when using a top android dialer, you can spend plenty of time talking. This puts it in close competition with the Google Pixel and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. All smartphones use a lot of battery power and with these three, the difference isn’t enough to make or break any of them.
