Review: ZTE Warp 7 for Boost Mobile
For $100, the ZTE Warp 7 really delivers a decent experience. ZTE did a fine job designing and assembling this big-screened handset for Boost Mobile.
The Warp 7 may have a conservative appearance, but the rounded shape really makes it a pleasure to hold and use. The 5.5-inch display looks great, call and data performance are on the up-and-up, and battery life is superb. The Warp 7 covers these basics handily. The processor is good enough for most tasks, save perhaps for making the camera a bit sluggish. Speaking of which, the Warp 7 is a solid everyday picture-taking tool. Some will appreciate the removable battery.
As far as the software is concerned, Android 6 is powerful and ZTE was careful not to muck it up too much. The phone offers plenty of room for customization, though it's preloaded with too many junk apps from Boost.

Boost Mobile has a huge selection of phones in the $80 to $130 range and many of these — such as the LG Stylo 2 — are excellent alternatives to the Warp 7. Landing in the middle of this pack, the Warp 7 is really quite rewarding. If you really need to keep the price under $100, you can't go wrong with the Warp 7.
