Review: ZTE ZMax Pro for MetroPCS

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

The ZTE ZMax Pro is a hell of a good value. MetroPCS is selling it for $99, which makes it the best bargain in Metro's lineup. Metro has a handful of phones in the $50 to $80 range and more in the $150 to $200 range, but none as balanced as the ZMax Pro.

The ZMax Pro has an attractive design, good screen, solid wireless performance, and excellent battery life. The hardware is well put together. The Android software is powerful and runs well enough on the ZMax Pro. The camera app isn't the quickest I've seen, but the phone does a fine job in capturing usable pictures. On the negative side, I wish the fingerprint reader were most consistent.

Low-cost smartphones have come a long way, and the ZMax Pro is good enough that it will change expectations about the experience that budget phones should deliver.
