I've had this phone since its release at metro pcs, and the only problem I notice is if I'm texting to fast the keyboard glitches a little, but other than that still works like new with the hybrid Case it holds my 128gb SD card and will be one of the first handsets to be getting the Nouget upgrade, they are already setting up a beta for people with, The ZMAX PRO in the u.s.a. For $99 I think it's still the best phone for under $200 and when we get Android Nouget hopefully we will see a little More features like call blocking that alot of people like to have, without using a 3rd Party App.

Didn't even get to use the phone,that night he tried to charge it and the phone started overheating. We unplugged it and went to the store the following morning. The girl started giving me attitude but I stood my ground,finally they agreed to give us a new phone. Long stort short, 3 wks later AND a complaint to the BBB we got results! So far no other problems.
@ Anonymous. Zmax Pro(Z981) has a built in battery which can not be removed and just in case if a phone powers off automatically that could be due to a glitch or freezing issues. However a power drain will fix the problem, just hold the power button for 20-30 seconds and the phone will vibrate after which you'll see the phone coming back to life.

It goes on a deep sleep mode.
Hi, To make video calls by default the built version has to be running on B12 and B08 is the old version which does not have video calling capibility.
J, 02 Jan 2017Does it come with video calling feature? It's the metro Pcs version I did hear it will come with video calling

To capture a screen-shot from the ZTE ZMAX PRO, press and hold both the Power button and Volume Down button at the same time.. Should work perfectly! As far as the inferior audio on the recordings go, my only suggestion there would be to maybe make certain the microphone is not blocked in any sort of way.. If you have a protective case for the phone, make certain the hole over the microphone is not prohibitive in any sort of way. Sometimes my finger blocks the mic when I try and record as it sit there perfectly when holding the phone in one hand. Best of luck!! I am pretty impressed with my phone over all!!
I have this same phone and have even not experienced any of the problems I see I in the comments

I bought this phone on the advice of my son and daughter-in-law. I have been disappointed since day one. When I left the store, I went back to work. I tried to use it and nothing. I couldn't get online or text. I thought I was in a dead zone. I wasn't. The phone had frozen on the very first use. This was not an isolated incident. I have to reboot my phone 15 or more times per day, usually when I need it the worst. I took it back to the store and told them about the issue and the girl grabbed my phone and started pushing buttons without me being able to see which made me very nervous. She said it was an app I downloaded. I told her it had been doing this since before I installed anything on it. She handed it back and said she had to see it malfunction before she would do anything. She was very rude so I was too at that point. I took it to a different store and was told it could be changed out under warranty but if he did it there would be a $15 charge. The store I bought it from can do it for free. I am so looking forward to dealing with those people again. (sarcasm there). I don't care for the phone, the service, or the people at the Metro PCS store. It has been the worst phone I have ever owned. I miss my Samsung Galaxy S3.
My husband bought and game me this ZTE ZMAX Pro phone on 01/02/2017 and im having problems with the phone already. When people is calling me as soon I answered the phone it won't take the calls. My son was texting me and I'm not able to receive the text and my husband wasn't able to received my text neither. When I'm on the phone talking and the voice mail starts talking with the missed messages and I have to hang up the phone to stop the voice messages. I feel very frustrated and I don't know what to do? Another problem is that when I recorded my Zumba class yesterday 01/06/17 the sound of is horrible. One thing I wish the phone needs is being able to do screen shots because it is very helpful when I want to keep important information and save it. Please Let me know what should I do?
Thanks, sincerely Claudia

This phone is cool, the only thing is that it has a lack of gestures like a ONEPLUS or the battery life like a ONEPLUS. Otherwise i like this phone i give it a 7.5 out of 10 because of the battery life and lack of gestures.
