Review: ZTE Anthem 4G for MetroPCS
I have a hard time recommending the ZTE Anthem 4G to anyone. The size and weight are hard to ignore, but could be overlooked if the Anthem's performance warranted it. Sadly, the Anthem falls short just about everywhere else.
The network performance, poor call quality, and battery life alone are enough to sink the Anthem. Add in the year-old platform software, crummy camera and video camera results, and god-awful mobile web experience, and you have an all-around loser.
I might cut ZTE some slack, since this is its first LTE device for MetroPCS, but that doesn't mean consumers should have to suffer. There are plenty of LTE 4G alternatives available from MetroPCS that perform much, much better.
I don't hear any anthems being sung for the Anthem; but I might hear Taps.
