ZTE Overture 3 is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's free I got this phone free for porting over my number. I used it for a week, while waiting on another one to go on sale. For a free phone it is decent. The camera is not great inside. It does better in well lit areas. The calls were clear, and people could hear me okay. It was a little slow opening apps, and switching in between them. Ran Netflix fine, with decent image quality. Overall not bad for a free phone, but don't try to compare it to anything mid grade or higher.

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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Most basic “smart” phone. It gets the job don even when it comes to calls, texts, and emails but the camera is the worst I’ve ever had on a phone! If your looking to take pictures on the go, this isn’t the phon for you.....I know I’ll be looking for something better soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Phone I am very pleased with this phone. I bought due to website and low monthly cost but the service is better than any phone I've ever used. I use it for work and personal and it is clear, doesn't drop calls and does all I need it to do!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I loathe this phone. This phone is so loaded with junkware, re-routes and the like that it is impossible to do a legitimate search. I became frustrated with it and decided to do a reset and start over. When I did it has come back, it in now stuck on the Google sign in page and it will not let me past it. Why Google and not Cricket? I have no idea. However, I DO know that this phone is unuseable. Returning it. It is THE worst phone that I have ever had. The only thing positive that I can say about it is that the audio and the ringer works well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unsatisfied Store person said it was 2 Rams of memory found out it wasn't ,screen touch response isn't accurate on this phone anyway which was supposably brand new. Supposably I'm in the LTE coverage area but goes in and out constantly and no more than 2 bars of service at all times ,but if u were child or a person that only use the phone for talking or texting you wouldn't have any problems unless you went to the next area code then your service drops completely with this phone anyway

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK for the price Phone is very slow to respond. even when you take pics and then try and view them it takes forever. also hard to type with the tiny keyboard. Battery life is very short. If I have it unplugged for 10 mins, it's already at 80%. Phone looks cute.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Internet works great! The internet works great and has a good battery life but the camera does not work very well. The pictures are cloudy and not very colorful. The text message notification does not work. I checked the settings to double check.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for free I got it for free switching,needed something asap.Maybe bcuz I always liked the LG..decided to try something different,but drives me crazy to answer a call..is it the white or the green phone I swipe?. Also,dont like the gallery features,cant regroup pics as I like.And I thought the camera prob was me until i read these reviews.Dont like how the texts messgs are arranged and I cant tell when I get a text/whatsapp unless I look at the phone...no matter how I do the settings.Drives me crazy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a piece of junk! Won't even accept the SIM card that came with it. I tried it different ways just to be sure I hadn't put it in the wrong way. No matter what I did there is cellular network available. But I put the same SIM that came with the Overture 3 into an LG Spree I had and it worked. Good thing the Overture 3 was free.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but Not Great It works okay but not great. The memory card that looks like should come with it does not. The phone is so old that it's Hard to find A Case that fits. It Runs okay. It just runs a little slow at times. Sometimes there is a lag when trying to type.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent phone the phone has all the features I need, and the memory to support it A large screen where I can actually type correctly (compared to tracfone), and better phone quality. I can actually use my phone in my work without the phone cutting out, and the apps load everytime

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Slow response time Did not like it it took too long for anything to open up and the pages kept flashing different apps even though I hadn't even opened them so I ended up going back to my old Cricket phone it was horrible but I guess that's what you get when you get a freebie

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PHONE! I am so glad that i switched to cricket wireless, customer service is VERY friendly and this phone has been nothing but AMAZING, i never thought i'd love a phone so much or that it was possible; although I've always had good luck with ZTE products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprising good phone Recently picked up this phone when I switched to Cricket to use until I could afford something higher end, but have been so happy with it I have decided I don’t need anything different. Never had ZTE before but am impressed with it so far.
