The ZTE Reef has a water-resistant design, a well-stocked camera, and a bright display. Call quality is quite respectable.

The Reef lacks 4G and the latest version of Android. It takes a long time to boot up and the microSD card slot is behind the battery.

The ZTE Reef stands out for its water-resistant skin, but skip to Virgin's other smartphones if you care more about getting the latest features and top-of-the-line performance.

It's water resistant

calls sound digitized like they are computers. Games freeze up. Phone freezes.
