I've had this phone for about 3 months now and it's awesome!!
There is no Root yet though, but even without it, it's still a great device almost identical to the ZTE Grand X Max+ a little bit smaller. I mainly wanted Root so I could unlock the wifi hotspot but you can use direct tether without Root. (just turn on airplane mode first then activate tether then turn off airplane mode & use a client changer on your browser of choice)
I hear that there some people are experiencing problems. Please check to make sure it is not your SD card. I recently had some issues with apps suddenly stopping and such but the root cause was that my sdcard was corrupted even though it seem to be reading fine. I removed it and the phone had no problems after that.
i had my zte zmax phone for only 2 months now and the phone shuts on and off and does not charger correctly they gave me the phone like this when i bought it so if you want to buy this phone make sure its brand new

When I go to play store to look for stuff to download like Snapchat and I push the install button and nothing happens. Is my phone broken or what. I really need some advice and help please.

The phones amazing no problem but me and my coworker have this phone and we have the problem with snapchat our back camera doesn't take pictures with the flash on? Anyone know why or how to fix it?
kg, 06 May 2015Good fine just lacks a front camera for selfiesOh course it has a front facing camera. Check the specs...
Amazing piece of hardware for south of $100. Great size screen, good memory and storage, and the processor does just about everything. You could spend $500 more and get a better phone, but not by much. It also had the near stock version of Android, after using Samsung's for so long, I'm so glad to get rid of that system draining leach. Eating up my system resources just to run a skin of Android is crap. Most don't realize that much of your better specs are allocated to just running fancy OS that is completely pointless.
