Review: ZTE Grand X Max 2 for Cricket Wireless
Cricket Wireless is selling the ZTE Grand X Max 2 for $200. That's a great price considering all the X Max 2 brings to the table.
This gigantic phablet delivers on the two most important functions of big-screened phones: a solid viewing experience and full-day battery life. The Grand X Max 2 lets you enjoy YouTube, Netflix, and other video content for hours, and looks great doing it. Other features are more inline with the phone's price point.
For example, the phone has some color to it, but is made of plastic, not glass. The cellular radio does well for a prepaid device and voice quality was decent. The user interface offers lots of room for customization and performance is smooth. The phone has limited storage, but supports memory cards. The camera app is confusing and sometimes slow, which results in smeared pictures, but video looks good.
