ZTE Blade X Max is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 779.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first ZTE phone. I was very skeptical about upgrading to the ZTE Blade X Max, because I'm on a fixed income and wasn't sure if I could afford it after owning the LG X Power but glad I upgraded. I'm not overally hard on my phone, but I surf the web, Youtube and stream audio. One major thing that drew me to this phone is since I'm legally blind but have sight, reading things is a challenge. The 32 GB storage is a plus, since I take plenty of pictures as well. I thought the 6 " display would be something I would need to get used to, but it fits my hand like a glove. This phone is the last phone I'll need for hopefully at least five years since I'm very careful with my phones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant screen. We bought this a couple weeks ago due to the promotion price and because my husband needed a new phone. It's got a large, brilliant screen. High quality viewing angles and good sound and call quality. The fingerprint scanner works quickly every time and you can give access to multiple people with it. It's biggest downfall is the lack of NFC. I'd have liked to have NFC included so I can make purchases when I'm away from my money. Overall I'd recommend it as a great budget Android that is running nougat out of the box. In the future when I upgrade again I will make sure to get a phone with a great screen and NFC. But you do get a good deal on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my ZTE BLADE X MAX I bought the phone literally a week ago and I love everything about it. I initially had a Samsung Grand Prime and it was time to get an upgrade. The storage is amazing. I love apps and the storage is more than enough for me. Second, I love music and the sound that comes out of this thing is amazing. Last, but not least, I love the size and clearness of my screen. The phone is made beautifully and is very eye catching. Oh, I almost forget, it's the same size as the iPhone 7 Plus. My only thing I wish the phone had was NFC for Android pay. That would've made this phone the best phone on the planet. Outside of that, I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Some good features - very poor quality phone I had this phone for less than a month when it stopped holding a charge, would not link to my car and stopped recognizing my finger print and locking me out of the phone. I paid $129.00 for the phone - 3 weeks later because I purchased the insurance, I had the choice of sending the phone and $75. to the manufacturer and wating to get a refurbished one or taking $55. trade in value and getting a different phone...The phone has a great screen a killer camera and alot of other features but costs way too much to last 3 weeks, and it has a worse re-sell value than a car... Cricket should make the manufacture reimburse buyers but I doubt they will...
