The ZMax is a budget phablet available from both T-Mobile and MetroPCS. This Android handset should appeal to cost-conscious buyers who want the biggest screen they can afford. read review ›

Great Phone! The best for a budget phone!
My wife broke her iPhone so I gave her mine. Quite frankly, I was anxious to go back on Android. I tried to look for a budget phone, since my budget was low. I tried Tmobile's Samsung Avant and LG L90 - Both were good but not great. Then I went with an unlocked Motorola G LTE, good phone but not great and camera sucked!
I was hesitant to get the ZTE ZMAX because, well I'm not a fan of ZTE and they are not known for offering great phones ... I took the risk and bought it anyway, with little choice that I had with my budget. I figured, Ill buy this phone and switch when I am able to afford it. After my first day with the ZTE - WOW, OMG, WTF, IS THIS REALLY A ZTE??? ONLY $252? Yes, Surprisingly, I stand corrected. This phone competes with ANY high end device. Camera is superb. Call quality, battery and performance is amazing! No Lag! High End results for a low budget price.
Speaker is LOUD.
Battery lasts all day with heavy use, easily!
Ringtones are loud
Clear & Crisp HD call quality
WiFi calling - AMAZING
Resolution is AMAZING
Camera is AMAZING
Videos - WOW! AMAZING
Watching Netflix on a 5.7" screen - OH YEA NICE!!!
MY ONLY CON:
Vibrate is on the soft side, can't hardly hear it vibrating! - NOT A DEAL BREAKER
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PHONE!!!!!

I got this phone after purchasing the iPhone 6 and after a few days other than being bigger there was nothing really better. I saw the ZTE Zmax and was impressed with the specks and the battery size 3400 miliamp.
Pros: the HD quality sound on calls
The largest screen and the clarity of it.
Great gaming device
The battery Ã°Å¸ââ¹ is amazing last at least two Ã¢ÅÅ days on a charge
Camera is very good
Cons: not for one hand Ã¢Åâ¹ use
Doesn't fully take advantage of the screen with multi screen capabilities
Speaker even though it sounds great is on the back of a flat phone and when on its back is quite muffled.
Overall this is the best phone Ã°Å¸âÂ± I have ever used you can leave the brightness Ã°Å¸ââ up for all day use or but it on auto do two Ã¢ÅÅ days worth of use. The almost pure vanilla experience is amazing and just can't talk enough about the battery. A phone Ã°Å¸âÂ± for any one that is a heavy user.
