Review: ZTE ZMax for T-Mobile / MetroPCS

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  

ZTE did a decent job with the ZMax. It's a solid device that gets most of the basics right, though there's nothing particularly awesome about it. It's well made, but relies on ZTE's rather staid design language.

The main selling point of any phablet should be the screen. As much as I like the ZMax screens' brightness and color, the resolution is somewhat disappointing, particularly with video content. The signal performance is OK and call quality is average, but battery life is killer.

The apps are almost all standard Android, which means users should be familiar with how they work. The camera app has some great features, but the app looks dated and the sensor itself could do better.

The ZTE ZMax is a bargain on T-Mobile's network. The price point is the real story here. It costs $250 at full price or just $10 per month with one of T-Mobile's Simple Choice plans. At that price, you're getting a solid performer for the money. It's not the best phone T-Mobile sells, but few offer as well-rounded a feature set for just $10 per month.
