Review: ZTE Warp Sync for Boost Mobile
The Warp Sync is an excellent phone for the money. Boost Mobile is offering it at $130. The handset has an attractive set of features and performs well enough for this class of device.
The hardware is quite good even if the design is somewhat plain. The screen shines brightly and belies the phone's price point. Network performance and battery life fall into expected parameters for a device on Sprint's network. In other words, they won't blow your mind. Call quality definitely could have been better. I was also a bit disappointed with the processor's ability to keep the phone running smoothly.
ZTE's user interface skin does a nice job of jazzing up the Android operating system without impacting usability. The Warp Sync has every basic app and feature smartphone owners expect from their devices, such as email, media support, and productivity apps. The camera is decent, but not exceptional.

Boost sells phones that cost between $50 and $650, with most centered around the $100 to $150 price points. At $130, ZTE has a nice competitor in the middle of Boost's lineup. It's a respectable choice for people who need a simple phone that performs well on a pre-paid service.
Very affordable phones with huge screens have been a relatively popular segment in the US in recent years. ZTE used to address this market well.
