Scrap phone poor and bad customer support for Africa market no OTP for 7.1.1 upgrade for Nigeria market, useless phone and poor reliability
The screen is most definitely not poor quality, this is a garbage opinion a minority of people have claimed. one of the better ones IÂ’ve seen particularly factoring in its price. The issues or issue of note is the maximum brightness output is decidedly average giving it not so great sunlight legibility. It suffers the rainbow effect on an angle yet all AMOLED screens appear to have this or the blue shift to some degree.

It's a Samsung AMOLED panel from a couple of generations back. It's not as good as the S8 or S9 screen, but it's the best screen ever on a 300 dollar phone. At extreme angles there's a little green and orange color shifting but it's fleeting and doesn't encompass the entire image.

First impressions we're ok.... moreScreen is indeed poor.
The other party not hearing you is due to a bug somewhere, if they cannot hear you, hit the speakerphone button twice to switch to and from speakerphone and it should work properly.

But I updated to 7.1.1 with the help of this same page with download link provided by a valuable user. Just download it and transfer to a SD card on your phone. Go to system update it will automatically detect the file and will update it. Very simple. You can find the details on this same page. Actually I have updated to Marshmallow latest and then to 7.1.1

Of course it's still worth. I got it for $200 from ZTE directly from UAE. Now it's on 7.1.1 working very smooth and charm like $800 phone.

First impressions we're ok... but the build quality did not impressions me.
3 months later... The screen is scratched to heck and the receiver cuts out intermittently .. people can't hear me on the phone call 2 seconds after I've made a phone call where it works. Would never buy a ZTE again. Went back to. Moto x4 and couldn't be happier.
Icarus581, 23 Jun 2018Will it be wise to buy this (2nd hand) in 2018? Which aspects should I check before buying?Not at all, ZTE is currently on the verge of dying seeing how the USA destroys it. Google a bit and you'll see that owners like me will probably never ever see another securety patch.
