The phone specs make it seem fantastic and very comparable to the top of the line phones. However, I am currently returning my 4th phone of this model. It is full of glitches. Though, I have not had any issues with charging as others have mentioned, I have had numerous problems. The swipe function doesn't work properly, therefore scrolling is interesting to say the least. When typing not only does swipe not work but even chicken pecking with one finger yields terrible results. No, it is not operator error as I have been typing for more than half of my life. Also, I am missing phone calls and not receiving my text alerts. Luckily, I had insurance so I am getting an upgrade and hopefully this alternative phone works better. LG stylus 2 plus was sent for free due to my numerous issues.
It's not really a bad cell I mean I would not recommend to buy if you are a heavy smart phone user? As the processor speed is really really piss poor slow and as I too have had issues with e charging port even when the plug is in firmly and all the way it will not charge at times and I have read many complaints on that issue but I will say it is a great poor man so smart phone...
The phone itself wasn't too bad, but the sturdiness of the phone sucks. Volume buttons don't work anymore, back gets easily scratched, and the charging port doesn't work anymore leaving me a useless phone! I have to seek a alternative now!
AnonD-667980, 09 May 2017I can't believe I'm the only one having so many problems with this phone (ZMAX Pro) This is ha... moreSorry to hear that. My ZTE ZMax Pro has none of those issues that you mention. On occasion, I do have a problem with the mic echoing to the listener. It could be the way I am holding the phone - I don't know. On those few occasions, I just take it off speakerphone and it works just fine. Since the phone is only six months old, it might behoove you to exchange it under warranty with your carrier.
I do two things about once a week that keep my phone running smoothly.
First, I clear the phone's cache: Go to Settings->Storage->Phone->Cached data (Wait until "Calculating..." switches to a value). Done.
Secondly, I reboot the phone: While the phone is on, press the Power button for a few seconds until a 3-option white window appears. Tap Reboot and let your phone restart. Done. (Alternately, you can just press & hold the Power button for about 10 seconds until the screen goes black with "ZTE" and "Powered by Android" appearing on the screen, then let go of the Power button and it will reboot.)
Andais, 22 Apr 2017Got this phone a month ago, a couple weeks after I bought it, realized the headphone jack does... moreI know this may sound silly, but just in case... I have known of several people who have had this issue, only to find that they have not pressed the plug far enough into the socket. Evidently, on some phones the contacts are very stiff, especially when new. Worth a try.
zte zmax pro is the worse phone ever..my cheapy free phone is 99% better than zmax pro..metro upgrades no exchanges or refunds..yuk!
This phone is one of the best phones with all these good specs its fast quick and its nice and bigger than my iphone 7 plus and i love it more than than man my iphone 7 plus.

I've had this phone for about two years and I LOVE it. I dropped it and the three control keys on the bottom of the phone stopped functioning correctly for a period of time but recently they began to work properly again!
This a horrible phone. The stupid phone womt hold a charge. Its constantly getting hot. This iis my 2nd phone. I hate this damn phone with a passion. Guess if price too go to be true, dont buy it. You get what you paid for.
This phone is horrible I have been having issues since I got this phone I had to do a warranty on the first one this is the second one and it's worse than the first I recommend not to buy it never would I bu
osasko, 05 Apr 2017I'm using this phone in Nigeria I like it but it does not support 3g/4g hereAre you serious about this cause I just bought this phone
AnonD-659231, 05 Apr 2017I've had the same exact problem with this phone. It will turn itself off and then cut back on ... moreTo fix it from turning off and not on for days is hold the volume up and volume down and the power button all at the same time for 15sec and it will turn on. It goes into a deep sleep mode
This phone sucks because it does support USB On the Go (OTG) Otherwise it is an ok phone, but come on people at ZTE, dont you think people use OTG these days? Specially on your high end phone!
ZTE pro max is an absolutely great phone, especially for a pre paid phone. The screen is really big the camera is great and the memory is good. Recommend this phone
