ZTE Anthem 4G review


The new $199.99 ZTE Anthem 4G sounds like a tempting proposition for MetroPCS subscribers. It brings the power of Android combined with 4G LTE data connectivity to the table, all without having to commit to an onerous service contract. A closer look,...

The ZTE Anthem 4G offers clear call quality and 4G data without a contract.

With its slow processor and older software, only desperate Android shoppers should consider ZTE's Anthem 4G.

I love this phone!!!!


I've had this phone for almost 2 weeks now and have to say that it's awesome. I ordered it on the Bestbuy website. Even though it's Gingerbread (2.3) instead of the new 'ice cream sandwich' or 'jelly bean', i love how fast the screens cycle. The Anthem...

Superb how fast the screens cycle.

No cons at all...
