I have this phone for about 3 months so far so good no real problems it's pretty fast too but for the price you can't beat it
I have had this phone since Feb, itÂ’s been ok until now. I have to tap to speak to open it but it wonÂ’t let me so IÂ’m totally stuffed. Really really pissed of.
I have had my ZTE Blade less than a year from Cricket Wireless. I have the same issues as JP. When my phone rings my screen stayed dark and I can't pick up the call. When I try to open the screen it hangs up the call. The phone has given me nothing but grief. I took it to 2 different Cricket stores, but they couldn't fix it. They said my only option was to send it for a factory reset, which will cause me to loose a lit of the stuff on my phone. Do not get this phone!
Zte sucks at making a reliable phone. The junkyards in America are filled with these things im sure. Stop making phones zte you suck at it. Do not buy this phone all the negative reviews are true. All the people saying it's a good phone are NOT true. You've been warned
JP, 13 May 2018I bought this phone from some woman about a year ago, this phone has been a problem child ever... moreI speak from personal experience both as a Cricket user AND as someone who owns this phone. The problems you were having were not because of the phone, but because of Cricket and how their chip works within. I had the same issues and when I switched carriers, they magically went away.
bought this phone thru metr pcs was the worst mistake of my life... Have had nothing but issues with this phone since day one and i would definitely not buy it again
I like the phone but the internet stuff is very slow and that because is 2g not 3g
JP, 13 May 2018I bought this phone from some woman about a year ago, this phone has been a problem child ever... moreThis phone has been in the market for one year. How did you manage to buy the phone before it was released?
I had this phone, changed carriers, sold the phone and regret it daily...got the revvl plus and its the biggest piece of junk phone I have ever seen.
I bought this phone from some woman about a year ago, this phone has been a problem child ever since, ( I'm pretty sure that's why she was so eager to sell it.) The phone freezes constantly when the phone rings the phone screen doesn't always display on top. the speaker is bad especially when driving, you'll need good earbuds. Finally, when I was in the hospital and really needed my phone it wouldn't load past the Cricket screen, which is why I find myself at this site, reviewing other phones before I make a purchase. I will never buy a ZTE phone again.
I've had this piece of shit phone for 3 months now totally regret buying in my zmax pro was way better no problems the year I had it just today the phones home buttons won't work settings won't work I can't download shit for the life of me I wouldn't recommend buying this phone to anyone at all zte needs to step it up this phone is by far the worst one yet hands down.
I hate this phone. I have had it for 1month and it's been one problem after another. It keeps freezing, take forever to turn on, takes forever to open an app. Some times it takes so long to open an app that I have to go to my setting and stop the app most of the time that doesn't work so I have to turn restart the phone. Downloading.....I can't even find anything I download I have to do to the notification bar to see what I downloaded and of course once you use the notification bar that's it . So I have to go to file manager and move whater it is I downloaded to a different location. The call waiting doesn't stay on and I can go on and one on. I've have taken it back to have it fixed 4 times already and each time they say they have fixed it and yet it still acts the same. I had the zmax pro and I loved that phone. I wish I had never purchased this phone.
I hate this phone. Ever since I bought it, all it has done is lag and randomly close apps. Now, I did own the ZTE Z Max Pro before and thought it was a wonderful phone for the price. After the fingerprint scanner and cameras went out (it had been two years at that point), I enjoyed the phone enough that I figured that I'd upgrade to the newer ZTE device. Now I can say without a doubt that this phone is the worst device I have ever owned. It closes and restarts apps randomly, lags on videos (how do you even mess up playing videos!?), and, on top of that, its microphone for regular calls and video stopped working entirely. If I want to make a call, I have to either use speaker phone or a headset. Only a month after I purchased the phone too!
To be fair, I do put a lot of strain on devices. Gaming, listening to music... Its an almost constant use. At the same time though, the *previous*(possibly incorrect) phone, the Zmax pro, fit all my needs and it seems really strange that the newer model is worse?
I plan on putting a couple of .22 acorn rounds into it. Can't use it as a phone, may as well be a target. My next purchase I plan on is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4.
PS. I payed about $120 for the phone, where as the ZMax pro was $100. The Redmi Note 4 is about $150 unlocked on Amazon. I really should have done my research on the device before paying that much for it. Hope this helpz someone make a responsible decision on their phone. Cheers!
I have had several devices at top price range .galaxy note 5 w/su which I paid top dollar and it was the first and last time I spent over 250.00 for a phone.rooted phones are the worst .you spend all your time trying to tweak then next thing you know its time for another one. Even unrooted with stock ROM this zte max ,blade is one tough customer .I bought it used for 20.00 and it performs ,and out performs others rated far beyond what the z981 is.its gets bad ratings from people that use $ 1.380 accessories
[deleted post]Dude are you for real, I got this phone for a friend at a pawn shop for $80 what the hell do you think you're going to get for a $160 retail device. Don't come off as if this device is supposed to perform like a device with a QC 635 chip. Get your expectations inline with reality. It's a throwaway phone at throwaway prices.
