This isn't Windows where every other program could contain a virus, get your stuff together.
As of May this year, I have gotten official notice from ZTE USA technical division that they no longer offer support or any updates, security or o.s., for this phone thus making this a dead and unsafe device. The last update was August, 2020. I would encourage anyone with this device to seriously consider another brand and stay away from any future device that they make. I have tried to get an honest answer from them via email and phone to confirm this for almost a year when finally a supervisor from tech finally admitted to this truth.
Unfortunate...this was a pretty good phone.
On paper this seemed like the deal of the year, I got mine from our network operator sale.
At first glance everything was okay, but...
-Gets really hot in heavy use, even without wifi hotspot (if wifi hotspot is on, it's scary hot)
-Really slippery (designed like a wet soapbar)
-Fragile front and rear glass, both shatter really easily (no bump protection at all)
When this appeared, no cases, no covers, not even a screen film was available locally. So I immediately ordered some from china, needless to say, most were utter .... and the only working magnetic clip-on allround "glass"/alu -cover, blocked most of the rf, so I had to remove the protective case to get signal.
Front glass was broken in a week, totally shattered in a month, rear cover was dropping sharp glass bits in 2 months, so I had to remove it. Camera cover is integrated into rear glass so the camera broke the next week.. I'm really not into paying for the marque, but when the cheaper competitors have quality like this, I guess I'll head to more expensive makes, that have decent covers and glasses available from the get-go.
No 3.5mm headphone jack was the dealbreaker for me. I would have bought this phone otherwise.
warning this phone has fragile screen, with protector have several cracks in it from dropping on linoleum covered wood flooring.... good thing i bought when extended plan was available

I have purchased B&H deal & using Ultra Mobile (T-Mobile MVNO) SIM into it. I specially bought this for 2 things, 1st it has LTE Band 71 & 2nd it is dual-SIM phone. But both feature I'm having issue. I never get LTE Band 71, mostly I get B4, B12 & B66 and inside home I mostly connected with VoWifi for calling. I check with Ultra but they are unable to support & says if your area does not have B71 then need report from 3-4 other instrument and then only they forward case to T-Mobile And for dual SIM I have other Indian SIM in International Roaming that work with this phone in 2nd slot but SMS outgoing is not working with that here. So, major concern is LTE Band 71, anybody used LTE Band 71 with this phone on T-Mobile network or any other country service provider who have LTE Band 71 ?
Excellent phone at a great price. Picked up the 12 gb for $399 on B&H. Steal of the year!
Just picked this guy up for $269 open box. An amazing phone, screen is great especially it's color accuracy. Only minor feature I'm missing is it's weather sealing. Really appreciate they included wireless charging it's a feature once you use you can't unused. On T-Mobile USA all cellular capabilities are built in and ready to go. No need to jump through hoops to get it working.
it is a great phone. they just updated it with the security patch for august today
