What the Critics Are Saying...


PCWorld

Although the ZTE Chorus has a low-quality camera and camcorder, a cheap display, and a resistive touchscreen, this phone isn’t a bad fit if you’re on a tight budget and you primarily want to listen to music on the go. If you do decide to use the Chorus for communication purposes, you get 1000 minute...

PC Magazine

The ZTE Chorus is just weird. It's based on Android, but it's not a smartphone.
