Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can you her me? Yes but you sound like you're in a First, I love the size of the phone, battery life is pretty good not great. Now the problem, people simply can not hear me talking. The camera is fine if you can hold it steady, selfie cam is very very good. I have to buy a new phone after 6 months, I'm not too happ2about that.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Idea Yet Lacks Reliability I purchased one and had to return it after 2 days. The phone kept freezing and also rebooting itself. I love the size. I then bought a LE S3. Evo phone. Was the same size but much lighter. It is a ver6 excellent phone. I have never been happier. Only down side, it doesn't come with 3.5 headphone jack, but does come with excellent ear buds, with C- connector plug. Excellent sound.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money and time I bought the phone on Black Friday 2017, and after 1 month I regretted doing so. Stay away from this phone I guarantee you will be disappointed and feel cheated. In other words, it malfunctions so much that it is practically unusable. Don't be fooled because it initially it works like it's supposed to, give it a month and that will change.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zte has bit the dust! I had the zte max 1( first version 2015)and the Zte grand x 3. Both where out standing. Afterwards zte tried to ride the wave on both phones. After those zte took the ram out of them and never regained popularity. They minus well shut down or change the name bc I'll never ever ever ever purchase their brand again. Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Mistake I bought this phone after my LG Stylo 2 quit working. I chose this over the LG Stylo 3 because of a $20 difference which was a big mistake. It freezes and constantly drops calls. I'm not at all impressed with this phone and I would not recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Haven't had any issues like others have So far so good! The one issue I have is the phone keeps going on DND on its own. Other than that it's great. Fast, no dropped calls, no freezing. But the DND is driving me insane
