ZTE Overture 3 is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 213.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Better as a paper weight than a phone It would be shorter to list the things that DO work on this phone but I cannot think of one thing that works well on it. Battery dies within 6hrs of charge with minimal operation. Storage is ridiculously small. It closes out of apps as I am using them. I will be typing on a text message and the next thing I know, I'm on the home screen opening apps. The alarm clock that comes on the phone keeps glitching. Camera is awful. On calls half the time it sounds like I am talking through a waterlogged metal tube. I bought it as a last choice, and honestly that is where this phone should stay- as an absolute last choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for buck I was hesitant to purchase this phone because of its lackluster processor. I use my phone 4 basic internet use and streaming music. It keeps good pace for these uses. Call quality is also quite good. The main selling point for me is that this is hotspot compatible with current data plans. Video quality is not bad. I would give this ordinary but very functional phone a 3.5 rating if I'd paid what I normally do, but given that it does everything I need at such a great price I'll rate it a solid five.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone for the price, horrible camera I was looking for a small phone with an indicator light, which is difficult to find. I've been pleasantly surprised by this phone over the past month. It performs the functions I need (work email, text, calls) and what I want (Instagram, Lyft, Shipt) well. It's a little slower than high-end phones, but not annoyingly so. My only complaint is the camera, which is significantly worse than the other cheap phones I've used in the past. Unless you need a good camera, this phone is a great value and I'd strongly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this phone I recently got 4 of these phones for myself, my wife, and 2 of my kids. The phone has all the features I need and works great. The camera quality could be better, but I knew that when I bought it, although it is not bad, and is actalally better than I thought it would be and I use the camera a lot. Call quality is excellent, extremelly clear. For the price, I think this is an excellent phone!
