It has enough of enticing features to stand out amongst its rivals on Boost, but as a whole, this “high-end” prepaid smartphone is more like a low to mid-range postpaid device.

As of right now, the ZTE Warp is sporting a no-contract price of $199.99, which is tolerable when you look at the other selections available with Boost Mobile right now. No arguing about it whatsoever, it has enough of enticing features to stand out amongst its rivals on Boost, but as a whole, this “high-end” prepaid smartphone is more like a low to mid-range postpaid device. Regardless of that, the ZTE Warp simply employs enough quality elements to make it an admirable offering worth the money.

It doesn't have quite the level of build quality

from PC Magazine

If you're a Boost user looking to upgrade to a smartphone, the ZTE Warp is a good choice. If you can get past the overly-reflective screen and poor cameras, it becomes even better. But if you can't, the Samsung Transform Ultra gets you a nice physical keyboard along with a screen that's easier to see.
