Remarkably good for the price

ZTE Blade V8 Pro

from Android Community
This is probably the best experience with a $230 phone I've ever had, and that's saying something. I am really excited about trying the Moto G5 Plus, which has a similar spec sheet and newer software, but in the meantime I am really happy recommending this phone, which is, pound for pound, slightly cheaper than Motorola's latest mid-ranger...

The best feature phone choice on T-Mobile right now

ZTE Cymbal

The ZTE Cymbal Z-320 is a step forward for voice calling on T-Mobile, but it doesn't do enough, even for a feature phone... Full review

A slightly smaller, more affordable version of its flagship

ZTE Axon 7 Mini

from Talk Android
The device features a similar design, but lesser specs to accommodate a more budget-friendly price tag, which isn’t always a bad thing. There are plenty of excellent budget Android phones to choose from right now, and one more option can only help... Full review

Beyond mid-range

ZTE Blade V8 Pro

from Chip Chick

If you’re looking for an affordable, competent, and feature-rich handset, there’s no doubt the Blade V8 Pro delivers. But with the Honor 6X playing in the same league, it’s a much tougher game. The Blade wins on paper, but there’s more to making a solid handset than a nice spec sheet. If you want a slightly better dual camera and display, a larger battery, and a more premium, compact design, the Honor is probably the one to buy. But if you value a faster processor, NFC (ie. Android Pay support), USB Type-C, and are comfortable with a slightly bulkier phone, the Blade... Full review

Big battery for cheap

ZTE Blade V8 Pro

The ZTE Blade V8 Pro has a long battery life, a fun camera with neat tricks and is cheap compared to other mid-range phones like this... Full review

A decent phone that would be better off with a single camera

Not the perfect budget phone, but it hits a whole lot of critical stops

ZTE Blade V8 Pro

from PhoneArena
As is only befitting a mid-ranger, the ZTE Blade V8 Pro is a story of hits and misses. In the win category, performance is decent, battery life is stellar, and still photography really shines with the phone's dual cameras... Full review

Good materials, and a solid spec sheet

ZTE Blade V8 Pro

from Phone Scoop
ZTE managed to push out a solid smartphone in the Blade V8 Pro and yet it is sadly held back by a few weak points here and there. On the plus side, the V8 Pro has an appealing design and good build quality. The curved glass and chamfered frame are particularly nice. The materials are definitely above average for a phone at this price. The phone also offers good call quality and good-enough data performance. Most people ought to be pleased with the camera, and the ZTE-skinned Android platform is powerful and runs well...

ZE Zephyr DOES use a SD Card

I know this is an old thread, but since it popped up first or second on a Google Search, I thought I'd better respond. I was installing a 32 GB SD Card in a friends new Zephyr and had the same initial react as most reviewers. WTF, the system uses most of my internal memory and you cannot mount an SD Card. Turns out KitKat 4.4 uses "shared memory" for internal and external memory. There is no way to mount the SD Card as far as I could figure out. The solution, ugly, is to insert your sd card , and do a hard "Factory Reset".  After that completes, her total memory went from 1 Gig internal to 33 Gig. The systems apps in internal dropped from like 890 Mb to about 300 some Mb. Took a photo with the camera, the photos went to the SD Card. This was a while ago, so I can't remember how I checked the memory. But when I installed a few apps, if they are able to be transferred to a SD Card, you could see that most of the memory usage went to the sd card, and only a little to the system memory.  BUT BE CAREFUL  if you have data on the SD Card and do a factory reset like I described to recognize the card, you may also loose all your data. I gave it 8 stars, because for the price, like $39 bucks for a Net10 Zephyr (actualy $79 but includes 1 $40 monthly activation card), it's a great deal and seems pretty capable...

i don't love it

ZTE Zephyr

This phone has like no Internal storage. I wasted money on a 32 GB SD card thinking that would help, but you can't move apps to it. As a person that likes to have a lot of apps on the phone this was a terrible choice because you can only have like 2 at a time.

was wonderful up until the 30 day deadline to return. It said invalid Sim card. Straighalk insisted on sending me a new one but before they could get it to me I watched a you tube video on how to fix it myself and it worked. Only other issue I have had is it calls different contacts in my list randomly. Sometimes I will not even be in the same room so I know I'm not doing it.

THE VOLUME IS HORRRRRRRRIBLE

ZTE ZMAX 2

The volume on the ZMAX 2 is awwwful. When I record a video, I can't hear a damn thing! Is there anyway to raise the volume. The volume output hole is tiny. John W. Miller

Volume is horrible; can't hear a thing when playing back a video. I know the phone is inexpensive, but this is ridiculous.

The one I got is super sensitive. When you try to scroll down or up its always clicking on everything

I just kind it annoying that the data for all my apps are being saved onto the phones internal storage as opposed to the SD card even though I moved those apps to there along with setting the storage location to the SD card.

Just received it

ZTE Quartz

Just received my phone and find it easy to use except accessing voicemail. I am used to accessing vm with one button, now I need 4 steps, a bit annoying.
