ZTE’s latest smartphone for the US market features a 5.7 inch display, a hefty 3400mAh battery which the company says is good for up to 2 days of run time, and an affordable price tag.
You can buy an unlocked ZTE ZMAX for just $252.
There are a few things to consider before pulling out your wallet though.
First, the ZTE ZMAX will be a T-Mobile exclusive in the United States. So if T-Mobile coverage is spotty in your area, you might want to think about picking up one of those $25 Personal CellSpot routers for WiFi calling that the company is providing these days.
Second, while the ZTE ZMAX has a big screen and a big battery, it’s basically a mid-range phone. It has a 1280 x 720 pixel TFT LCD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, an 8MP rear camera, and a 1.6MP front-facing camera.
The phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat and supports GSM 3G and 4G LTE networks.
In other words, it’s a mid-range phone, but it’s probably more powerful than any high-end smartphone you could have bought a few years ago… not to mention cheaper.
The ZTE ZMAX will be available from T-Mobile starting September 24th.
