Reviews (3.8/10 Avg. rating)


Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.

Hate this phone not reliable.

I had this phone and it's one of the worst ones that were made the navigation bar doesn't illuminate the screen colors are light not vivid

the battery drains pretty fast and the phone gets hot as well the notifications are bad as well this is my experience with this phone.

Adequate Phone.....

I agree with a few reviews but only in a minimal way. First, this is a simple Android smartphone. It's not a IPHONE and it does what it advertised. Basically, I think you get what you pay for.

I agree with a few reviews but only in a minimal way. First, this is a simple Android smartphone. It's not a IPHONE and it does what it advertised. Basically, I think you get what you pay for. I do agree with the person that posted that you can't download many games because of storage issues but let's be honest here, with a screen this size how long were you planning on causing possible strain and stress on your eyes looking at this screen? Get a tablet or a larger screen phone. Instead of bit*@#!g about what it doesn't do...,,, atleast be honest about some of the comparable features it does offer. When texting you can swype, it does voice Googling and texting, it can record those rude threatening creditors or associates while conversating, the phone can withstand drops and possibly scratching of it's screen screen with or without a case/cover, videos clearly and is a really cute little phone. I've had my Majesty for almost two years and give it quite the workout. It's not only for personal use but I'm able to conduct business,such as emailing, multimedia and multiple ongoing calls at once. Folks, still looks new - not a scratch on it. It's very resistant and versatile and guess what? I was just gifted the beautiful 6inch screen, curved LG G FLEX phone that I'm anxious to play with but I'm still partial to this. ZTE. MAJESTY that I've never had to replace. Downloaded the ZEDGE app and it allowed me to customize my ringtones, screen, wallpaper, contract tones etc. I'm on it now. Although I have a new smartphone(forget an iPhone) I'm still uncertain on whether to keep this majesty as my second phone, give it away or sell it. Regardless, it's a good phone. I expected what it advertised and got a Lil more. Don't expect Donald Trump luxuries when you're only paying hobo prices! Less

Lots of trouble because of ZTE overlay

ZTE has tweaked the OS and replaced things like the default calendar with their own piece of garbage. A bad calender is one thing but they messed up storage so it is impossible to install very many apps even with a 32 gb sd card.

Worst cell I've owned, not user friendly, keyboard is too small.

Disappointed

While this phone has been my companion for the past year, the journey hasn't been the best (nor my favorite). It storage space is its' biggest drawback with only 4 GB Rom and 768 MB Ram.

While this phone has been my companion for the past year, the journey hasn't been the best (nor my favorite). It storage space is its' biggest drawback with only 4 GB Rom and 768 MB Ram. This means you can only have a small amount of games/music/etc. (Also it doesn't matter what size SD card you put into due to how terrible the phone is at placing the data for apps.) It also means you can't be doing a lot at once. Also It's speaker is pretty bad but I just always used headphones. Its Front Camera is terrible (0.3 MP) but its back camera isn't that bad (5 MP). It was fast enough to keep up with whatever I was doing for the first 6 months until even that started to go downhill. The camera wouldn't always connect, games would exit you out, and the phone always randomly restarted at least once a day (But I mean it only takes like 3 minutes to start up so it wasn't that big of a thing /sarcasm) The only good thing about this phone is its price. For 80 bucks at Walmart, it isn't too bad and that's about its only saving grace. Overall I give it 5 out of 10, mostly because the price wasn't that much to begin with. You get what you pay for in this case, I guess. Less

Today is Dec 16th 2014...... I received my phone for Christmas 2013. Activated it in January 2014 thru Straight Talk. By February 2014 I had the 1st of now SIX REPLACEMENT PHONES!!!!! Now number 6 has the following issues: 1. DATA will not connect I have to use WIFI 2. I sound like R2D2 over 50% of the time when I call people 3. Phone shuts off randomly 4. it sometimes has a hard time displaying screens correctly 5. Insufficient memory error even after deleting all unecessary data, files, apps. 6. Not all internet sites will open. 7. Not all phone calls or texts ring in or even arrive or showup on my call log. 8. When sending a long text to a Verizon phone, it cuts it into two messages and adds extra characters to where he thinks I am swearing at him. Then to make it even WORSE, Straight Talk customer service is a major joke and made my experience horrifying. Even going to the corporate office was a joke. I am now just waiting out my one year manufacturer warranty to use my WalMart Warranty to avoid the anguish of calling Straight Talk's awful customer service Less

Worst Phone I have ever had

I have had the ZTE Majesty for 11 months and had to get it replaced two times since I purchased it. So I am on my third one in less than a year. This is the worst phone ever.

I have had the ZTE Majesty for 11 months and had to get it replaced two times since I purchased it. So I am on my third one in less than a year. This is the worst phone ever. I can't check my voice messages because the screen keeps going blank. The reception on this phone is awful, noone can hear me or understand what I am saying. I would not recommend this phone to anyone. I just ordered a new phone, name brand that is well known, I am sure the new one will be 100 percent better Less

Waste of money/crapiest phone ever

Worst phone ever. Do not buy ZTE, they will not help you phone works on and off, locks up, constant problems. Would rate 0/10 but wasn't an option
