If you buy your phone thru Metro PCS and I only paid 99 bucks.. well worth it.. they will unlock after 3 months of paid service.. I will probably use mine in Colombia. so I need the SIM card to do that
Great phone. Had the older model, too. Upgraded to this phone and love it. Big screen for movies/gaming, lots of extras--why are you paying hundereds when you can get this for 120? I ride on Metro PCS and never have issues... I was on ATT for 10 years and Metro is just as good. Very satisfied.

I purchased this phone through our local T-Mobile store & absolutely love it. I read all the reviews on it I could find before the purchase. The only downside to this phone is the speaker volume. It is about on par with my old Samsung S5, maybe a slight bit more volume. That's about it. If you want an economical, very functional, large screen android powered phone, this is it.
Anonymous, 24 Jan 2017if it's unlocked, will it work with AT&T 3G and 4G LTE?Depend on what channels ATT uses in your area. This phone doesn't have Band 17 which is used by att heavily, so you might have some connection issues.
Roger from Indy, 02 Feb 2017Why would any phone that has Gorilla Glass III need a screen protector?!?Because sometimes it can save screen from cracking (accepts shock instead of gorilla glass) helps against some scratches too I think, but since zmax has slightly rounded edges it might not help
ZTE ZMAX PRO...LOVE LOVE LOVE this phone its the best phone I've ever owned..crisp clear picture, the sound, the design, and its low price made it affordable! Thank You!
The volume is crap, can barely hear while talking on the phone... The speakers the same, can barely hear music or movies.. And don't even try to use the speaker phone! Other than that, (which is a pretty BIG problem for me) it's an ok phone..the finger scanner is iffy! It only works about 75% of the time.. The camera takes very low grade photos.. But for free it's OK..

THE ZTE definitely needs a screen protector and case...
Looking forward to seeing how well it works with a big SD CARD...BUT GAMING IS FINE. I'll be loading StarTrek and more, but Animation Throwdown and all the video I've seen so far hasn't shown any lag at all. I'd have to say it's better than the G FLEX even in that aspect. Great phone
I want to like this phone but you can't run high end games on it without it overheating and lagging causing the battery to drain really fast. This is a budget phone after all so I'm not too surprised. Plus it has issues but it seems like the B14 update fixed most of them. I don't have the money for a new phone so I'm stuck with it. Hopefully it will start working better with this new update. We'll see.
Best budget phone on the market hands down. Good amount of internal storage made even better with a dedicated micro SD slot. I rarely ever have any problems with this phone. It runs smooth, very rarely slows down and great battery life. My only real complaint is that it has no NFC or IR blaster. The biggest seller for me is internal and external storage. The finger print reader is just a huge bonus for the price.

I love everything about this phone except music video quality..Sound sucks and volume is too low..Anybody with tips on how to improve this? I would appreciate any guidance..thank you
Mine works great it's unlocked and I'm currently using a Mexico sim card company in the united States has great and amazing signal I'm using T-Mobile towers
Don't buy these phones. They are compete crap ! After a few weeks of use you will regret it. GPU/CPU constantly overheats. Lost calls even though you have full network bars .No wireless AC 5ghz channel - was advertised on their web site as having it. -COMPLETE LIE !
I have 2 .. one for me and the wife. Both are troublesome. regret my purchase. If you buy this phone... eventually you will too !
Pro's nice memory, great screen size, and good battery life. Finger print scanner is a plus. Con's keep losing internet, phone service, hotspot works sporadically, app sometimes takes more than one tap to work, google voice search sometimes doesn't work, freezes up. Maybe I just got a defective phone.
