      “in Slovakia I havent find any NFC tags or know someone with a NFC phone” A pity, we would love some feedback on tapping a Windows 8 or Blackberry phone. What about .. you start selling tags, before others do it 😉

    There is definitely a NFC chip and NFC drivers inside. Take a look what I found inside my system apps. Maybe ZTE will introduce in the future a “Grand X” style phone (for now there is Grand X, Grand X Mimosa and Grand X IN…) with completely functional NFC. Anyway, there in Slovakia I havent find any NFC tags or know someone with a NFC phone 🙂

    There are no NFC settings in this phone.

      Thank you for the feedback. Maybe nfc is optional. Manufacturers should, but just don’t tell it. And the network operators .. very often no word about the NFC chip in the specs.
      “ZTE Touch and Share is a combination of NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi”. Touch and share settings in your phone?
