The ZTE Open C is better spec’d out of the duo. The phone’s dimensions are 126 x 64.7 x 10.8 mm with its screen measuring 4 inches diagonally.

3.5-inch ZTE Open II Firefox Phone
The ZTE Open II, as suggested by the name, is a successor to the ZTE Open which was launched last year. The handset is an entry-level as can it be and, just like the ZTE Open C, runs Firefox OS 1.3.
