Hi this is Brian Bennett for cnet.com and today we're taking a first look at the easy to you and them Ford chief for metro PC yes. Available now this handset cost 199. And is available for purchase without having to sign a stifling wireless service contract. Now MetroPCS says ZTE -- four G provides Android. Four GL TE and enough speed and power to police a fiery trail across the Internet. Well perhaps the tired and put it like that exactly but it does come close this language on its website. It's a nice thought but I have a feeling that it's weak one point two gigahertz dual core snapdragon processor and 512 megabytes of ram. Will cooled -- fourteen down a bit. Ice in its weak since both MetroPCS and CTV suspiciously avoid mentioning the exact class of CPU -- -- that uses. I suspect though that it's an older snapdragon S three or some sort of variant. Another feature that leaves me cold as the old Android 2.3 gingerbread software the phone runs. Hey it's over two years old and not getting any fresher. On front of the -- four -- is a small four point three inch LCD screen for low 800 by 480 pixel resolution. Above it is a VGA front facing camera. Below are for old style Android many buttons which are passive and backlit. The left -- holds volume rocker and micro HDMI port while on the right are the power button and micro USB port. Up top is a 3.5 millimeter headphone Jack and on back is the phone's five megapixel camera and -- flash. Unfortunately the camera app is very basic and has no frills or fancy features. This soft touch -- surface here looks pretty wild though almost caught. The -- -- also features dolby audio technology which makes viewing movies more engaging. Even better the phone comes with a full Kung Fu panda two movies stored on a micro SD card tucked into its slot underneath the battery door. I'm Brian Bennett and this has been a first look at these ET income fourteen. Check back soon at cnet.com for a full review.
