A decent phone that would be better off with a single camera

ZTE Blade V8 Pro

from GreenBot
The ZTE Blade V8 Pro isn’t best of class, but it has nothing to be ashamed of. Expect, maybe, that dual-camera... Full review

The best budget phone available

ZTE Blade V8 Pro

from Tom's Guide
The ZTE Blade V8 Pro's 12-hour battery life, dual rear cameras and fingerprint reader redefine what you should expect from a budget phone... Full review

Not the perfect budget phone, but it hits a whole lot of critical stops

ZTE Blade V8 Pro

from PhoneArena
As is only befitting a mid-ranger, the ZTE Blade V8 Pro is a story of hits and misses. In the win category, performance is decent, battery life is stellar, and still photography really shines with the phone's dual cameras... Full review

Good materials, and a solid spec sheet

ZTE Blade V8 Pro

from Phone Scoop
ZTE managed to push out a solid smartphone in the Blade V8 Pro and yet it is sadly held back by a few weak points here and there. On the plus side, the V8 Pro has an appealing design and good build quality. The curved glass and chamfered frame are particularly nice. The materials are definitely above average for a phone at this price. The phone also offers good call quality and good-enough data performance. Most people ought to be pleased with the camera, and the ZTE-skinned Android platform is powerful and runs well...

Can’t keep up with cheaper budget phones

ZTE Axon 7 Mini

from Digital Trends
At $300, even if it’s priced appropriately in terms of internal hardware, the processor isn’t capable of offering a smooth user experience. The same is still true if it’s priced at $200 — and it’s a clear fault of the software, not of the processor. Go get a Moto G4 Plus instead and you’ll be much happier... Full review

Feels like overpriced, out-dated mediocrity by comparison

ZTE Axon 7

from Good Gear Guide
The ZTE Axon 7 does little wrong, but it launched overseas many months ago and, at this high price, there are many better choices to be made... Full review

Well made, but offers middling specs and performance

ZTE Grand X 4

from Phone Scoop
The ZTE Grand X 4 doesn't offer quite enough phone for its $130 price point. Even if the handset borders on the generic, its strong materials and solid build quality will give you confidence when carrying it around. The screen is very bright, though some might wish for more pixels. Phone calls and data speeds are about average, and battery life is adequate at a single full day of heavy use... Full review

Competitive price and still-solid features

ZTE Axon 7 Mini

from TrustedReviews

The ZTE Axon 7 Mini is an awkward mishmash of good and bad, adding up to a phone destined to be thought of as an also-ran even though it does have some great features. Its speakers are unusually loud and Dolby Atmos processing is worth experiencing. The OLED screen is good, too. The just-OK camera, tasteless software alterations and flat-out bad stamina are likely to be sticking points for many, though, as they affect you on a daily basis. If it wasn’t for the battery life you could whip the ZTE Axon 7 Mini into shape with a few surface-level tweaks, but there are no tricks... Full review

Fantastic sound, well-executed, attractive design

ZTE Axon 7 Mini

from PhoneArena
The Axon 7 Mini falls short of being the platonic ideal of a “mini” phone, one that takes a flagship, features intact, and gives us a handset with a smaller screen. Instead, it practically turns that approach on its head, barely decreasing size at all, and instead bringing us a phone that might be better called the Axon 7 Lite, dialing back on processing power and bells and whistles...

A budget-friendly behemoth of a smartphone

ZTE ZMAX Pro

from GreenBot
While the ZMax Pro performance meets the minimum expectations of a $179 smartphone, it doesn't do anything to go beyond that. In other words, this is a budget phone where I felt like you are getting what you pay for. Unlike the similarly-priced Moto G4 line, where at the end of the day you kind of feel like you ripped Motorola off by paying so little for a phone with performance that exceeds its price tag...

ZE Zephyr DOES use a SD Card

I know this is an old thread, but since it popped up first or second on a Google Search, I thought I'd better respond. I was installing a 32 GB SD Card in a friends new Zephyr and had the same initial react as most reviewers. WTF, the system uses most of my internal memory and you cannot mount an SD Card. Turns out KitKat 4.4 uses "shared memory" for internal and external memory. There is no way to mount the SD Card as far as I could figure out. The solution, ugly, is to insert your sd card , and do a hard "Factory Reset".  After that completes, her total memory went from 1 Gig internal to 33 Gig. The systems apps in internal dropped from like 890 Mb to about 300 some Mb. Took a photo with the camera, the photos went to the SD Card. This was a while ago, so I can't remember how I checked the memory. But when I installed a few apps, if they are able to be transferred to a SD Card, you could see that most of the memory usage went to the sd card, and only a little to the system memory.  BUT BE CAREFUL  if you have data on the SD Card and do a factory reset like I described to recognize the card, you may also loose all your data. I gave it 8 stars, because for the price, like $39 bucks for a Net10 Zephyr (actualy $79 but includes 1 $40 monthly activation card), it's a great deal and seems pretty capable...

4GB Memory???

This phone may advertise itself with 4GB but but you enx up with way less than 1 GB to use for apps. Also even small apps are not installable unless you have over 250 MB freed up.

i don't love it

ZTE Zephyr

This phone has like no Internal storage. I wasted money on a 32 GB SD card thinking that would help, but you can't move apps to it. As a person that likes to have a lot of apps on the phone this was a terrible choice because you can only have like 2 at a time.

was wonderful up until the 30 day deadline to return. It said invalid Sim card. Straighalk insisted on sending me a new one but before they could get it to me I watched a you tube video on how to fix it myself and it worked. Only other issue I have had is it calls different contacts in my list randomly. Sometimes I will not even be in the same room so I know I'm not doing it.

THE VOLUME IS HORRRRRRRRIBLE

ZTE ZMAX 2

The volume on the ZMAX 2 is awwwful. When I record a video, I can't hear a damn thing! Is there anyway to raise the volume. The volume output hole is tiny. John W. Miller

Volume is horrible; can't hear a thing when playing back a video. I know the phone is inexpensive, but this is ridiculous.

ZTE Fanfare

It's Ok

ZTE Avid Plus

I just kind it annoying that the data for all my apps are being saved onto the phones internal storage as opposed to the SD card even though I moved those apps to there along with setting the storage location to the SD card. It begs the question if it's even worth having an SD card mounted on here.... More

Just received it

ZTE Quartz

Just received my phone and find it easy to use except accessing voicemail. I am used to accessing vm with one button, now I need 4 steps, a bit annoying.
