ZTE Blade X is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 146.
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 Awesomeness!! I had the Grand X Prime 4 which was a awesome phone but died a early death due to the river lol. I replaced with the Alcatel Pulsemix, which was good too but just didn't perform like the Grand X. My Pulsemix met a grim death a few days ago and I replaced with the Blade X. Its basically a upgraded version of the Grand X and its pure awesomeness Runs fine, has plenty of storage if you pop in a SD card so the people that complain it doesn't have enough storage must be clueless that you can do that. I have Dolby audio back which rocks on headphones. This phone does everything a very expensive flagship phone can do at a fraction at the cost.

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 4 out of 5 by from Good for the low price!!! I had to get a new phone due to my ZTE Grand 2 Max battery took a dive..I was one of the only persons who never had. Issue with it.. so I stuck to ZTE. This one so far has been a good phone.. battery life go's for a day and a half!!!! It very responsive and I have had absolutely none of the issues that ither folks have been having.. it's a 79.00 buck phone.. Don't expect the performance of a 1000.00 phone.. it takes good pics, no issues with phone calls or being heard on the other end.. I am very happy with it and recommend it to those who just want a basic smart phone.
