Brea, 13 Jun 2016Yes I'm having problems. It's horrible. With blue tooth you need to make sure the bluetooth versions match as the marshmallow 6.0.1 uses version 4.1 if the version is less on the device you are trying to connect you may need to get it updated or replaced.
I had the ZTE Grand Max and now have the Grand Max 2. I had to buy a new phone because after a year the charging port on my Grand Max stopped working. The charger on my Grand Max 2 has not stopped working after only a little over a month. I have never had this problem with a phone before and I'm so frustrated. Really like the phone but not the charging ports.

I am currently looking at the LG Stylo 2, The ZTE Grand X Max 2, and the Alcatel. I would love to have either for the camera. I take a lot of pictures. Which do you think is best out of the LG Stylo 2 and the ZTE? We are having trouble with my daughter's LG phone saving things on the SD card. I was told by a cricket person at my location that is a common thing with LG. I was leaning toward the LG because of the storage, and camera, but now am unsure. If you think neither, and would go with another phone, which would you recommend?

I switched back to my ZTE grand Max+, it's a drop off at least it works. I thought my Idol 3 was defective or something. I'm buying the ZTE Max 2: Cricket just dropped the price to $169.00

The phone freezes up and does other things that I can't explain the battery will not stay charged. I charge it and it goes down. They are prone to viruses also. I had to call for help and they had me to do a factory restore twice because of the issues going on with mine. I would not recommend any one buy this phone. It's a waste of money.
Romiust, 01 Jun 2016Idol 3 has the same processor and ram as the z max 2The Idol 3 and Grand X Max 2 do not have the same cpu processor. The Idol 3 is running last gens Snapdragon 615 while the Max 2 has Qualcomm's newest mid range SOC, the Snapdragon 617. I have both phones as I carry the Zte while my wife carries the Idol 3. There is a very very noticeable difference in how these two phones perform. The Alcatel is the most delayed response and leggy phone that I have ever seen while the Max 2 is smooth sailing most all the time. The 617 is superior to the 615 although some of the performance difference in these two phones could be chalked up to better optimization on ZTEs part. Trust me when I say there is a vast difference in the way these two perform on a day to day basis. The Idol 3 does have the better camera, hardware and software, and consistently produces better than good pics and the speakers in the Idol 3 are the best I've seen as of yet.

I am about to send mine off for similar problems. So far the only problems I have encountered are the sound doesn't match with the video and more than not my Facebook videos freeze. I really hope the issue can be resolved because other than that the phone is great.
Facebook video, Bluetooth,and screen rotation issues and this is my second one. Had first one replaced thinking it was just that phone but no. An cricket takes 25 bucks for a return fee so u get 175 back an u still get charged to activate a new phone LOL so I'm stuck with this hoping updates can fix everything wrong with it. On the plus sides...um great camera, runs smooth not done any gaming yet so no input there. Love the battery life an quick charge. But often current issues can't be fixed with updates it's not worth it
Dave, 28 May 2016Just bought this an love it but is anyone else having issues with the Bluetooth? Yes I'm having problems. It's horrible.
