ZTE Blade X is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 102.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Freezes up all the time. And drops most every call This is my first android phone. This ZTE freezes up constantly and has to be rebooted. It drops calls in mid conversation. Sometimes it doesn't ring at all. Its nice that the apps are free but there are so many ads that even that is not worth what I paid. Was way over priced at 149.99. I'll stick with the android next but go with a Samsung. The only reason I bought this phone was that the sales agent said it was their best seller and they had no complaints. I went in to buy the galaxy amp prime 2 but was persuaded to buy the ZTE. The fast charge is great as the battery goes down really fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone for the price I bought this phone during the Black Friday sale. Not thinking it would replace the Moto G plus I was using. It not only replaced it the Moto G plus it blew the doors off the other phone. I was shocked at how good this cheap ZTE was. I could not believe how fast this phone is. The fact that the phone gives the user an experience of a higher end Android phone is what blew me away. I have used the flagship Android phones and this one is right up there with how smoothe it is. I would totally recommend this phone over the Moto budget line up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Size, Bad Software The Phone is plagued with errors, it locks up and freeze at random times, it seems to also get bogged down when trying to do any function. I normally love ZTE products but this one falls short. I like the size and potential, but the phone needs work. The Finger button on back is a great touch and the camera takes great photos.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Phone I have ever owned. Absolutely Hate it Does't pick up calls. Rings once and then goes silent. Hangs up on people for no reason. Screen would be the only good thing on this phone if it wasn't broken from me being so frustrated with this phone and smacking it against things (after months of frustration I just couldnt take it anymore). This phone has 2.5 star rating. Why do they sell this to their customers????? Why?? This was supposed to be an upgrade with twice the memory but it is really slower to respond. Hate, Hate Hate Hate this phone.
