ZTE KIS plus: first impression
The ZTE KIS plus is by Congstar distributed and without a mobile phone card or contract only around 100 euros. The KIS plus offers a 3.4-inch display, which resolves only with 320 x 480 pixels and not especially bright lights.

The small side buttons to the deactivates of the display and control the volume provide a clear pressure point.
The KIS plus works with Android 2.3.6 (gingerbread) – this is no longer quite current, is cheap models but still used, and ultimately also don’t mind talking. The operation is quick to get the functionality already extensively.
