Although the ZTE Chorus has its shortcomings, it isn’t a bad fit if you’re on a tight budget and primarily want to listen to music

from 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 minutes each month and unlimited texting (but you may have to buy a small stylus just to type comfortably). And if the Chorus doesn’t work out in the end, you're not obliged to stay with it since it is a prepaid phone.

An interesting Android-based feature phone but it comes with some serious flaws

from PC Magazine

The ZTE Chorus is just weird. It's based on Android, but it's not a smartphone. It supports Cricket's Muve Music service, but audio quality is poor. It has touch screen that isn't responsive, terribly short battery life, and a back cover you can pry off just by looking at it. You get unlimited talk, text, data, and music for $55 per month, but for just $10 more, you can get all of that on a bonafide smartphone that will run scores of apps. The ZTE Chorus is interesting, to be certain, but that's about all it has going for it.

I couldnt be happier. I love my phone. It works great, absolutly NO problems. Everyone that has seen it now want one. Music downloads quick and easy and easy to retrieve later. I have never heard another phone sound so good either. This phone actualy plays bass like an expensive sterio. When connecting it to the car it sounds great. I recommend anyone who likes taking their music with them to get this phone especially at the price its being offered for. It is really simple to activate too.. Ive been using it daily for a month and not one problem. Less
