ZTE Groove (Cricket Wireless) review: Entry-level phone that's too little, too late


Nothing about the ZTE Groove screams "modern." Maybe it's the outdated name (seriously, the only appropriate times to say "groove" is when ironically referring to the 1970s, or discussing jazz music), but mostly because it runs on Android 2.3...

The ZTE Groove comes with Muve Music and up to 32GB of expandable memory.

Cricket's Groove runs on the dated Android 2.3, has a low-resolution touch screen with a narrow viewing angle, and a poor audio speaker.

While the ZTE Groove can make calls, pass it over in favor of better Cricket handsets.
