This would be a great phone for the price, if it was stable. I've had it for about a month now and the issues with the network are quickly getting to the point where they're too much to bare and I'm already looking to switch to another phone if there isn't something done to alleviate it. While calls and data are actively being used it's fine, but as soon as you let it sleep for too long, suddenly you find your not getting texts, calls, or data until you either reboot or cycle airplane mode. Whats incredibly frustrating is it seems like something that could be resolved with a firmware/software update, but it's been quite a while and here we are.
Additionally, there's weird graphical flickering in anything that uses the system intensively, primarily games. It's not bad enough to be unusuable (its typically only at start and occasionally during shifts from low to heavy use) but it's not great.
Haven't really used the fingerprint scanner at all to say anything about it. Camera is "good enough" but not great. I'd be happy enough with it if it wasn't for the network issues. I have a phone to get calls. If it can't do the basic thing it's designed for, it's time for a new phone. Unless they fix that at some point, I'd stay away. (Should note I can confirm its not a network issue causing the network troubles. It appears to be something with sleep mode. Also note I'm talking about the model that came from MetroPCS, other models might vary.)
(Accidentally posted this under the ZTE Zmax previously, but it actually belongs here. Mods, if you can filter the other one out and post this, that would be great.)
Alex2103, 20 Dec 2016I was thinking about getting this phone should iIts nice. Although a few things that I don't like. For example, you cannot set the notification sound as vibrate unless you put the ringtone on vibrate. Also when using apps like Pandora, Spotify, etc. you have to go back to the app to change the song since there is no shortcut.
Burchri, 15 Dec 2016I had the same issues until I received the update on the MetroPCS version. Go into settings, s... moreUpdate has been pulled. It is messing up phones that had no issues. The thing is a pos!!
fernandoago, 07 Dec 2016no,i buy from tmobil yesterdayTMobile owns MetroPCS, they're the on the same network and offer the same phones
guys do you know where are the stores of ZTE here in the philippines???
Sad owner, 12 Dec 2016Since I first got the phone I have very quick flashes of digital breakup. It doesn't really in... moreYes it has been happening during streaming video. I have a worry about it as well but as long as you have not gotten it wet or broke the screen it can probably get replaced. I'm not a worker so don't take my word as set in stone but most Companies will exchange it if there's a malfunction
Ya I read all the hype about the pro and ran out and bought it. I wanted to add an outboard DAC/headphone amp for great audio playback. Girl at store said no problem. Well it does not have USB OTG. I should have checked the specs. Obviously the girl at metro did not know anything. The phone is useless to me without USB OTG and getting rid of it. Staying with ZTE though. Axon7 or possibly the 7mini.
PS. The audio out of the pros headphone jack is at best dismal.plus it has other yet fixed issues. Mine is for sale lol

Go into settings, scroll down to about phone, and look for a system update. If it's not there, then you need to call MetroPCS and ask them about it. Also, for an SMS and MMS app I prefer Textra, so you might want to look into that app. It works great, even though it's $3 in the play store. Good luck with your device.

Hello guys! Any idea on where this device can be purchased in the Philippines?

Anonymous, 30 Nov 2016I just got the ZTE ZMAX PRO this month and now its overheating every time I put it on the char... morelet your fon cooldown at least 10 mins before charging. Much better if its Off to preserve the battery life, and lastly, NEVER use your fon while its charging!
Since I first got the phone I have very quick flashes of digital breakup. It doesn't really interfer with anything but it's just concerning. I hope the phone doesn't die out because of this. Does anyone else have this issue? I also have some trouble with the network like mms and internet surfing
You can also purchase the zmax pro at tmobile! Prepaid and Postpaid!
