If your looking for a cheap (possibility free) carrier phone on a budget look no further, the ZTE Grand x4 is probably the best quality/performance/features you can get in a mid tier handset priced as a low end. The best thing about it is absolutely its battery life since it has the same kind of battery a flagship device would have without the high drainage specs.
Not recommended if you have more than $100 to spend. Great if u can get it cheap or free from carrier.
ive had this phone for abohut 1 yr now but in the first 2 months of using the charging wire at home ,hence i dont drive at the base of the wire where it plugs into the phone has become cracked and exposed the wires inside im surprised that i cant find a suitable replacement and that it has continued to work and the cell company i bought the phone at will not replace it ZTE you have to find a better plastics company to wrap the wire as im not liking this one bit

On a slightly dim screen, 720 draws barely anything, and it's got a large battery to boot.

I was quite lucky to get this phone for free with a 2 year old contract with Freedom Mobile. Soon after that, the company realized that this phone is too good be given out like that and downgraded the offer to phones with 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM and 5MP camera. The major issue with this phone is that the 16G isn't nearly enough storage, because is the operating system takes up like 9G (for what? can't imagine) and you can't move the apps to the SD card. Also, 1 year after release, there's still no way to root it. Otherwise, it's a solid phone which can handle anything modern life throws at you.
Great phone (does the job great) My unit is running Build number Z957V1.0.0B07.
Got it with Freedom Mobile here in Canada. (WiFi calling, and LTE work great)
Already confirmed that this phone is not Meltdown security vulnerable.
"are not affected by either the Meltdown or Spectre vulnerability as they do not perform out-of-order execution", "Snapdragon 4xx processors based on A53 or A55 cores"

Battery life is great. Problem with the Dolby digital audio app when you receive a call and you're listening to music; it turn the sound very metallic with super low base. As a moderate to heavy music user on a cell phone this is a small but annoying hassle to force stop app and music app to restart. Not a good phone have if you're in Canada and using freedom mobile as a provider. Frequent missed calls and text coming hours later. Other than that it's a solid phone.
I LOVE MY ZTE GRAND x4. The only bad thing I have found is the ability to move all my apps to my memory card. I'm now out of memory and need to go get a new phone. I'm so horribly sad, this is the best phone I've had in years through Cricket. I'm sure there is a way! I will research before buying a new one, for sure. However, BEST PHONE!!!!!!!
I love the fingerprint login, then I can talk about my roommates and they can't login to see where/who/why I'm complaining!
unhappy with not being able to root phone in order to disable stock google junk i don't utilize. also unhappy about nonremovable battery...guessing the phone will need to be pried open to swap out.
thrilled about battery life and camera.
Decent phone and putting all the features together am satisfied. The only drawback is the resolution. So pics are not great looking as in Samsung note 4 or 5. So if you are a gamer
this phone is not for you.
