ZTE Tempo Go is an entry-level smartphone that was launched during the 2018 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. An affordable smartphone that comes with the latest Android operating system.
Just like most modern budget phones that packs just 1GB of RAM, it runs on the Go edition of Android 8.0 Oreo. The Go edition is meant to run smoothly and consume less space on smartphones with 1GB RAM or lower. Want to know more? Stay with me.
ZTE Tempo Go Design
Looks so plain and simple at the back, the device sports a Plastic body like most budget phones. The rear camera and LED flash are horizontal at the top left corner. The company’s logo is in the middle, with a loudspeaker sits at the bottom corner to the left.
Turning over to the side, it measures 9.14 mm in thickness, a little too bulky if you ask me. But that’s how most budget smartphones are, it also weighs just 150g, making it very easy to hold and operate with just one hand. The smartphone is only available in Black.
ZTE Tempo Go Display
Comes with a chunk of bezels allover and almost unpleasant to look at. Three navigation buttons sit at the bottom bezel, while the top houses the usual features. Furthermore, the screen managed to stretch up to 66% screen to body ratio, which is not so impressive.
Speaking of the screen, the 5-inch IPS FWVGA capacitive touchscreen displays like a budget smartphone. Boasting of a resolution of 840 x 480 pixels and 195.93 pixels per inch density for the normal clear visuals.
HARDWARE and SOFTWARE
The ZTE Tempo Go is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset with 4-cores processor. The quad-core processor reaches a speed of 1.1 GHz for extremely light users. Furthermore, it has a 32-bit CPU architecture, 28nm process technology as well. The Qualcomm Adreno 304 is in charge of graphics and clocks at 400 MHz.
There’s 1GB RAM available here for light multitasking and it reaches a memory speed of 533MHz as well. Small space is available for storage as well, just 8GB, but you can always upgrade up to 32GB with a memory card. The Tempo Go runs on the Go edition of Android 8.0 Oreo.
The 5MP rear camera is definitely not for photography enthusiasts, but manageable for those on a budget. Capturing just 2K resolution images, the camera comes with a LED flash and takes photographs with 2582 x 1936 pixels in dimension. Record videos of 480 pixels at 30 frames per second and take selfies with the 2MP selfie camera.
The ZTE Tempo Go is powered by a removable Li-Po 2200mAh battery with fast charging technology.
