Although shutterbugs should avoid this phone, it's still an attractive deal for bargain hunters
Looks cheap, feels cheap
Bright and vivid screen and good build quality at an affordable price
Fantastic, budget-friendly Android phablet
Solid design & construction for a budget smartphone
After impressing us not too long ago with the ZTE ZMAX, a prepaid phone attached with a killer price point, the ZTE Grand X Max+ continues the momentum for the company that’s really making its presence felt in the US prepaid market. With a sticker price of $199.99 through prepaid carrier Cricket Wireless, the Grand X Max+ offers quite a deal of value for its price, performance, and specs. It’s certainly not like some of the premium offerings we see overseas from the company, but in the budget smartphone space, the Grand X Max+ is a big phone with big dreams – and it’... Full review
An affordable phablet with a big and bright display
If you've been yearning for an extra-large Android phone but are on a tight budget, the $199 ZTE Grand X Max+ is a solid buy. The phablet's 6-inch display produces bright and beautiful images (albeit at a relatively low 720p resolution), and its 9-hour-plus battery life ensures that you can take this device out all night with confidence.

The best budget phablet you can buy
The ZTE Grand X Max+ has its faults. Its call quality could be clearer, and its wide, slick construction makes it difficult to hold. In addition, compared to high-end devices like the Nexus 6, Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone 6 Plus, its processor is a bit sluggish.
But as far as budget phablets go, the $200 Max+ stands out as one of the better values we've seen. For example, the comparable 5.7-inch G Vista, which has the same processor and 720p display, costs $350 off-contract from AT&T. And while Windows Phone enthusiasts will dig Cricket's other 6-inch handset, the Lumia 1320, the... Full review
A big, stylish, and sensible smartphone
ZTE did a fine job with the Grand X Max+. It owns a great spot in Cricket's roster of handsets and should do well for the prepaid carrier.
The hardware is about the best I've seen from ZTE. The glass sandwich design is sleek and appealing. The materials are quite good and I was pleased with the quality of the massive screen. Sound quality was above average and so was battery life. The phone handles the basics with ease.
ZTE has taken a no-frills approach with the software, and that's a good thing. The phone is preloaded with only a small, useful selection of apps. The... Full review
Honest to god a great phone but....
