This is one hell of a phone. I've owned this phone for at least 3 years, if not 4, and still counting. This thing has been accidentally dropped in water and taken a lot of beating but is still fully functional. I don't want to jinx myself now, and if I ever need a budget phone or "cheap" phone under 150 USD, I'm probably going to ZTE and seeing what they have to offer. They make (made?) hella durable phones.
I have had this phone since it came out 3 years ago and haven't had any problems with it. The best phone I ever had. I have all kinds of apps on it and still no problem. I have my SD card as internal memory. If I ever do need to get another phone it will be another ZTE for sure.

Nice phone for the low price.
Bought 2 of them for $49 each at Best Buy a year ago
Both had battery problems- won't charge to 100%. Had to buy 1 new battery for $15.
Still- got my moneys-worth --- for about $115 --- for 2 16gb 5.5inch phones!
Wi-Fi connection on this phone frequently fails. I can't find any solution to solve the problem. I'm thinking about buying new phone.
I have owned this smartphone for several months. I am familiar with some of the complaints mentioned above. The size is large, but there are lots of smaller cells if that's what you want. I wanted large for easy video viewing. It still fits in most of my shirt pockets. It is very frustrating when the dialpad disappears, but there may be a workaround. Ya gotta play with these things because instruction manuals seem to be a thing of the past.
This is a very poor phone. To large. Pocket dial wonder phone. Cuts off calls. Screen disappears when talking on phone and can not find it again to hang up or enter numbers or letters. I hate it alot. Doubles what u say on texts.

It is not compatible with the cardboard app, but you can watch Vr videos and games on it. As to if it is the same as the Zmax 2, I do not know. Hope that helped, at least a little bit.

Ham - Check you phone. Kingroot only gives you temp root, once you restart the phone, write protection wipes your root, as well as any changes made while temprooted. Its been a thorn in my side for 8 months now. Its unfortunate too, remove the bloatware & this thing has decent hardware for a very inexpensive, sharp phone. Screen is big enough & decent enough res to double as a note/tablet in a pinch. Bloatware slows it to Sh!t tho, as I'm sure your noticing. Also, even if you force install/default all saves and apps to SD, they get moved back to phone after an app update, so that BUGGS. Previous comment verified - I have spoken directly to ZTE corp (both US & China), no plans on supporting removal of R/W protect. I have already carrier unlocked it but that does nothing for the OS...grr
