Review: ZTE Grand X Max+ for Cricket Wireless
ZTE did a fine job with the Grand X Max+. It owns a great spot in Cricket's roster of handsets and should do well for the prepaid carrier.
The hardware is about the best I've seen from ZTE. The glass sandwich design is sleek and appealing. The materials are quite good and I was pleased with the quality of the massive screen. Sound quality was above average and so was battery life. The phone handles the basics with ease.
ZTE has taken a no-frills approach with the software, and that's a good thing. The phone is preloaded with only a small, useful selection of apps. The user interface is a breeze to use and performs well thanks to the Snapdragon processor. I appreciated the addition of Dolby's app for customizing the phone's sound, though most users will probably ignore it.

The biggest stumbling block is the camera. I wasn't thrilled with the results I saw from the X Max+ and wouldn't rely on it for my vacation shots. The video camera does a slightly better job.
The ZTE Grand X Max+ is not perfect, but no phone is. Frankly, you can't ask for much more from a device that's available for $200 without a contract. The phone sits in the middle of Cricket's lineup as far as cost is concerned, but it's a much better buy than the flagships that Cricket sells for full price.
