Review: ZTE Avid 4 for MetroPCS

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

ZTE has made compelling low-cost handsets in the past, but the Avid 4 for MetroPCS is not one of them. It's a mediocre device at best. The hardware is put together well enough, though the design is uninspired. Signal performance was pretty good, as was battery life, but voice quality left me wanting more and the screen is just not good enough even for a phone at this price point.

The Android operating system, while clean, was slow thanks to low RAM and lack of processor power. The camera delivers less-than-average results.

The ZTE Avid 4 for MetroPCS is not for most people. MetroPCS sells it for $50, which is about as low as you can go these days. I'd only recommend it to pre-teens who need any phone for basic communications. If you can spend $10 more, MetroPCS sells the Motorola Moto E for $60 and that's a much better option.
