ZTE Grand X 3 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this phone! I purchased this phone about 8 months ago. It has always worked great. My first day I dropped it in water (clumsy) and I mean completely submerged in water and it still works. YAY! My only issue is, just like another review that was posted, I too am told many times that I sould like a character on Charlie Brown so either I have to use my headphone set or put it on speaker. (Wah, Wah, Wah). I thought it was because I dropped in water but apparently not because of the other consumer that had the same problem....If the issue could be fixed on sounding muffled then I would recommend this phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Cricket phone I've had The batter life lasts FOREVER. The screen has a great resolution. I watch netflix, play pokemon go, do literally everything on this phone with no problem. The phone screen is a great size without being too big, to where I cant reach buttons. Very small drawbacks: once the phone dies, it takes a while to get charged enough to come back on. It only allows you to have 2 phone screens. The charger is USB C. But that is actually ahead of it's time, most companies will be switching because its a faster charge. Just means I can't borrow a person's charger.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not pleased We switched from our Samsung Galaxy s4 after the switch to ATT/Cricket conversion and bought these ZTE grand X max 3. They've been nothing but trouble! The phone will ring but gives an error code "phone has failed" and cannot be answered. Call quality is terrible. I don't always get texts. Videos won't play. More often than not it just skips to the end continuously. It just updated to 3.10.84-perf-gcf921d1-00451-g068163azte-kernel@Zdroid-SMT android version 6.0.1 and these issues still occur. These things have been nothing but a headache and we cannot wait to replace these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow amazing!!! I purchased this phone on the recommendation of someone on YouTube and let me tell you for the $80 I paid it's simply amazing okay it's no s7 or nothing but you didn't pay but 10% of the price so you can't expect that, what you can expect is a durable phone with amazing battery life and a so so camera(picture and selfie addicts look elsewhere I just wanna take some pics of my kids) for the price you really can't go wrong. By the way I had this little phone for 7 months without issues what finally did it in was dropping it a bunch of times(okay I'm clumsy lol) after the second case broke and that was after dropping it a umpteen times with a case and what happened was the charging port was difficult to get connected just the right way but the phone itself still worked perfect and I replaced it with a ZTE zmax pro which was an even better deal! I highly recommend this phone if you're coming to cricket or staying with them it's hard to do better on a budget!
