Look better, 29 Jul 2016Is not contract with metro just buy in paid the month. Buy this is the catch this phone is jus... moreZTE is a piece of junk I bought it 3weeks ago drop calls rotation for full screen don't work just go dead silent on my calls couldn't get another brand phone because my 14 days had passed they sent me another ZTE under my warranty same problems I hate this phone will never buy another one and gonna stay away from T-Mobile after 12yrs.
My Note5 was smashed & the insurance was $175 for a refurbished phone. The ZTE caught my eye as I was looking at the $700+ phones T-Mobile had on display in the store. I decided to go with the ZTE for $179 knowing I could return it if I hated it. I can not believe how great this phone is for under $200 bucks. I love the phone, even though it doesn't have all the bells & whistles my Note had this is still a great phone & worth every penny.
I love this phone. Nothing else has the size (not just taller lk Smsng8 but wider screen TOO!!) Runs gr8, fast, clear, beautiful. My old $700 Samsung Note may do something more but I sure can't tell. You DO have to learn a ZTE operation (read the manual instead of complaining) but it's a gr8 phone for $200. Can't wait til others make a bigger phone but not looking fw to $1000 phones again. Btw, I use my phone for everything & expanded the 32 g to 128 so it holds all my apps. I text adnauseum, email, compose letters, shop and cruise internet. Oh yeah, an occasional call, too, lol.
its a great all around phone. I love mine. if you looking for top notch concert recorder as well as headphone experience the LG V20 is your best option hands down. you wont be disappointed.
Steve W, 17 Aug 2016I bought the phone on August 11. Today is August 17. For the first hour that I owned the phone... moreYou have to download the google+ apk file and it will work fine. I had the same problem and finally found this to resolve it.
Here the update review it been updated since it been realized and the screen not was out it has been very decinent after first update and have not have any problems since then
I am very disappointed in the ZTE max pro ... The battery don't last long at all ,4 hrs the most .. Don't ever ever ever ever ever buy this phone . I had the Samsung J7 and I wish I would have kept it... Sorry but make a better phone like the J7... Plus it doesn't minimize the apps at all. There is a lot of disappointments in this phone.GARBAGE PHONE
I have one and it's totally too big and the volume buttons are in a Bad place and my sound is screwed already. I can't use my head phones or speakers in phone. I paid 200 for my piece of junk at Walmart.I had a smaller ZTE phone and it was a awesome phone, so I thought this one would be too.Wrong!
This is the best budget phone ever! But say if they wanted to try for a Pro2 later. Drop the screen size to 5.5-5.7 range. 6 inch is great and does media like a champion. But at 6'2" myself, this thing is almost impossible to just slip in and out of pockets it's so big. Can't imagine 5'5" jumping round with phone wedged in pocket. Trying to catch that one big call. Just saying.....
Nick, 20 Jul 2016With 99$ with contract, you can buy much better phones. Sorry zte. You failed.Sorry bud but see it's really not and there are no contracts with meteopcs
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2016Phone does not have specs that are advertised.Screen is not as clear as early max phone,colors... moreSorry i chose this over lg stylo2 plus. It has not improved battery life or camera that it claimed from 1st zte avid bad, very bad. Not only a lemon but was a used phone sold new! I have to do the claim on the dealer and call google for original email to unlock the zte avid lemon! Metro PCS Corporate store only in SE DC! . A mess.
J, 19 Aug 2016I was told by a MetroPCS rep that the phone can be unlocked after 90 days by calling up custom... moreThere is actually and unlock app on the phone. After 90 days you just run the unlock phone app and it will unlock the phone.
Steve W, 17 Aug 2016I bought the phone on August 11. Today is August 17. For the first hour that I owned the phone... moreI have not experienced anything close to what you've experienced. Yes it does sound like a lemon. Did they take the phone back and issue you a new one?
I got this phone UNLOCKED on Ebay on August 25, 2016. I paid $150, and believe me, I did my homework, and for the budget I am on, this phone ROCKS! Nuff said :)
I was told by a MetroPCS rep that the phone can be unlocked after 90 days by calling up customer care. Tech support would most likely handle it I'd imagine.
Phone does not have specs that are advertised.Screen is not as clear as early max phone,colors are also worse,washed out,has less front panels,camera has poor auto focus,13 MP is a joke. Battery does not last as long as early max phone, phone also is not as stable.
I bought the phone on August 11. Today is August 17. For the first hour that I owned the phone I could download apps then I took it back to my metropcs store who were great trying to fix it but finally gave up and did a factory reset. Again I could download apps for about an hour from Google play then the problem recurred. Since then I've done a factory reset three more times and the problem recurs after about an hour. I think I got a lemon but I know one other person who has the same problem so there could be some kind of flaw in their software. Has anyone posted or heard of a solution for what looks to be a common problem for some but not every one of these phones. I like the phone and would keep it if I could get a replacement.
