ZTE Boost Max review:


When Boost Mobile decided to rebrand ZTE's Iconic Phablet as the Boost Max, the carrier wanted to go big -- 5.7 inches big, in fact.

ZTE's Boost Max sports a premium build, a competitive off-contract price, and expandable memory.

Both the handset's call and camera quality are middling, and 4G LTE data speeds were consistently slow in our tests.

Consider the Boost Max if you want a cheap Android handset with a lot of screen. But if you can pay a little extra, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is the better budget phablet.

ZTE Z Max Pro: Its a Killer Phone for $99 [Review]


It's not too often we review budget smartphones on here. This can range from them mostly being gimped versions of their higher end devices thus missing features or not oh so well. ZTE recently unveiled the ZTE Z Max Pro which looks to give you a nifty...

I won’t lie when I first heard the price of $99 I didn’t expect this much out the box. But for a user of various Android devices you get a great deal. Huge battery, adequate camera, nice processor and massive display all bundled into one.

"I just bought this phone and I love it!!!"


Overall a really good phone for the price, the 720P display is more than enough, audio sounds really crisp, camera takes good pictures, nobody has complained about my call quality, streams music and video really well. I love this phone.

Huge clear screen, dolby audio, fast, responsive, great call quality, affordable, solid camera, gorilla glass, expandable memory, 4gLTE

Really slick back, can't remove battery.

The Max


I have had my phone for six months & I do love my phone. I only have one problem, in my photo gallery after a while the phone makes blank slots where pictures should be. In other words, if I have 100 pictures in my gallery, the phone will create...

I bought my phone 3 months ago. I love the picture quality, Movie quality, & pretty much everything about it. I've owned many, many smartphones. This one has really no comparison. This phone has great sound quality as well.

Boost Max


The Boost Max is a nice new handset. I really like the size of the screen. The picture quality is nice. The colors pop and it has a bright screen. The dolby audio helps with the sound. The speaker on back is loud and sounds ok. With headphones the...
