this phone is awesome so much better then the zmax pro in every way a great upgrade
Living Wind, 26 Nov 2017The phone itself being used for one single task isn't bad at all. ANY and I mean ANY multitask... moreThis phone absolutely sucks. Before I purchased
The blade, I had the ZTE pro max.6.0.0 The phone
Performed great. Unfortunately I dropped it and the screen shattered. Luckily, I had afew bucks to spend on the newer version of the ZTE series.
Thinking that the new blade would out performe
My previous phone, I bought the blade nougat 7.1.1. keep in mind my old phone was 6.0 marshmallow. Obviously, I was under the impression the more advanced the phone the better the performance. Boy was I ever wrong. The phone lags, buffers like mad, and quite frankly sucks. Wish I had bought my old model instead.
Don't waste your money.
AnonD-726562, 27 Dec 2017I agree, this is the worst ZTE I've owned.. I love ZTE due to the large screens, but this Blad... moreI hate this phone
I too loved zmax
But after this phone, I'll NEVER BUY ANOTHER
bought an SD card and can't even move stuff over to it
Terrible quality phone and video
I threw 180 away
The phone is good on heavy usage the battery life is phenomenal nice crisp display I haven't encountered heating up after streaming videos although the phone is huge with a 6 inch display the thin build of the phone makes it easy to hold all in all pretty solid device good job ZTE keel it up the 🤖
So I wish I bought the Samsung J7 Prime instead. This phone gets 4/10. Maybe a 6/10 on a good day. My biggest pet peeve... I like to settle down in bed looking at Facebook. I look at it in landscape mode or where my hands hold the phone at the bottom and top so I look at the phone sideways (horizontal). When I click on a photo or news story, the phone is forced into portrait mode (vertical) or I have to turn it long ways up and down. After I leave the photo or news site the phone remains in portrait and does not go back to the original landscape setting. Without purchasing an app, is there a way to fix this?
I have had the ZTE Blade Zmax for around a week now. I really like the phone! I've had every zmax version since original launch and i can honestly say, their great devices. I first had the original zmax, owned for 3 years, the zmax pro, owned for 1 1/2 years, and now the Blade zmax. Let me just say, for what you're getting for the price point, you can't really beat it. 6.0 inch FHD display, 16mp by 2mp rear camera, 8mp FRONT camera, 4080mAh battery that works well and lasts long, plus quick charge 2.0+android nougat, and not to mention the storage (32GB internal). Its a good phone! Yes the device may not be the fastest and smoothest OS wise, but depending on how you use it, will dictate how it will serve you. As far as concerns for the device read on other posts, i haven't noticed any issues. Battery performs well for the whole day, sometimes 2 depending on your usage. The only time i noticed the phone to heat up is when you play a game, which i find to be pretty standard and normal. Camera is exceptional and has cool dual effects, and a nice bright led light. The phone can tend to get laggy once in a while, a simple power off for 2 minutes and back on will perk it right up, plus this should be done at least once a day for any phone to ensure connectivity. I have yet to find any major issues with this device, i think for $99 at metro PCS is a great deal for this device. For those who have used ZTE in the past, you should have no issues using this device. I recommend it to anyone, its the budget friendly all-in-one device that serves needs at every level...Recommend definitely!
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2017Your talking about the wrong phone they only have it at metropcsVery true, only at Metro PCS. Go with the ZTE Pro anyway, it's a great phone, also has a big battery that will get you through the day, the glass is more scratch and shatter proof and can still buy it at Metro PC's
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2017Your talking about the wrong phone they only have it at metropcsI agree, this is the worst ZTE I've owned.. I love ZTE due to the large screens, but this Blade Z Max is a killer. It gets stuck often and can not be shut down due to slow processing and the fingerprint button overheating the phone and no battery access to help cool it down. Im a Cricket user (yes Cricket does have this phone) and was given this as a upgrade 3 months ago due to my last zte discontinuing. I will be changing soon....
Ported my number from AT&T to Metro and got the zMAXblade (free)had it for about a month give it 8 out of 10 no complaints love the big screen and the resolution I'm a data person don't make a lot of calls this phone works perfect for me
Get a Google Chromecast. It will tie your TV into the Smart Phone (and other computer devices in your house).
Before I owned this phone I had a ZTE zmax pro . I had that phone for over a year and I accidentally dropped it. So I decided to buy the same kind of phone. The first three months was just what I expected and about 6 months in my battery started going bad. By the 7th month I needed a new phone and I was kind of confused of what I should do. Only because the first one was good and the 2nd one wasn't nothing like my first one.
The day I went into my story they had a new type of phone and in my price range. I went with the ZTE Blade Z Max. I've had it for only a week but for now I am completely satisfied with my decision. I'm hoping I made the right decision..(only cause my son and I have a bet) he says his iPhone will last longer than mine..lol
I got this phone from Metro PCS store, 100$ + Tax...
32 GB internal memory is pretty enough. Screen is Full HD and 4000 mAh battery is very nice... Screen coat is very slippery, feels good while using in games or surfing on WEB... Pictures are not colorfully, like I phone 7 or 8, so its just 100 bucks phone...
In my opinion best phone in this price range, 100 dollars is nothing for this fast, reliable and tough phone... Charging is really fast, I like it...
This is the Worst phone I have ever owned. It shuts down, kicks me out of apps and worse after owning it for 4 months ( note past the 90 warranty) the screen started separating fromn the phone. ( No I didn't drop it) It is crap! Do not own a ZTE.. worse I am upset at Cricket for telling me it was such a great deal.. I miss my LG.. and will be going back soon. I will NEVER own one again and will encourage others to not own one It should be called the ZTE Blade POS
Jj219, 01 Dec 2017Yeah does that to mine too I don't know whyIt's definitely Japanese glass, not Chinese
