Review: ZTE Grand X 4 for Cricket Wireless

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  1  

The ZTE Grand X 4 doesn't offer quite enough phone for its $130 price point.

Even if the handset borders on the generic, its strong materials and solid build quality will give you confidence when carrying it around. The screen is very bright, though some might wish for more pixels. Phone calls and data speeds are about average, and battery life is adequate at a single full day of heavy use.

ZTE's spin on Android 6 Marshmallow is fine. It's not overwrought, and some of the touches, such as themes and a bevy of screen animations, make personalizing the Grand X 4 fun. The processor and RAM offer enough power to push the X 4 through most tasks with the exception of the camera. I wish the camera software were a bit easier to use, and I'd prefer to see ZTE speed it up so it takes sharper pictures.

There isn't a lot of competition in the $130 range on Cricket's shelves. Most of the carrier's handsets fall under $100. The Alcatel Idol 4 is probably a better pick than the Grand X 4, especially considering that it costs less and includes a pair of VR goggles. Given the alternatives at Cricket, I'd only recommend the Grand X 4 to ZTE loyalists.
