- It'll do. - Review by Juanita
If he hadn't broken the prong on my samsung, I would be Happy, Happy, Happy. With the ZTE Radiant, I'm happy. Maybe I'll find a manual soon or I'll be in the "Poor House" due to the many widgets that are using what little data I have plus the $20 charge ATT will add to my bill! (Posted on 11/12/2014)
- New to smart phones and finding that it's not as smart as I'd like it to be in some ways - Review by Mike
First impression was that the display was indeed more usable than the Avail 2 and that the phone was more responsive to my touch. But in the few days I've had it, I've discovered some annoyances.
1. The loud 4 note plus bang when turning on the phone. I can't find a way to disable it. It doesn't help me in any way and it's embarassing if I turn on the phone when I'm around other people.
2. The Avail 2 had a setup option to automatically disable wireless network data when WiFi is available. I haven't found that option on the Radiant.
3. My tablet has an option to allow applications that require the GPS to turn it on, and turn it off again. I don't remember if the Avail 2 phone had this option, but I don't see it on the Radiant. It's a great battery saver. Without this option, using some apps requires a few additional steps to turn on the GPS, and I have to remember to turn it off when done with the app.
4. I once stumbled across something that gave me a pop-down menu to select the silent, vibrate, or sound mode. Reading the manual, I found that this was a function of the Power button. I got it to work once or twice, but I can't seem to get it to work now. Either the phone locks or I get the Restart/Airplane/Power Off menu with the sound icons at the bottom. If there's a shortcut I haven't discovered it yet.
5. When I first set up the phone, it found my Google account and apparently retrieved a lot of information about my tablet. It began installing apps on the phone that I had installed on the tablet. This was both a good and a bad thing.
First, it was convenient. as I was planning to install several of those apps on the phone. But it was unexpected and confusing. While this process was going on, I was seeing messages about "unable to install (name of the app)." I suspect that some were tablet versions that weren't compatible with the phone. But I wish it would have asked me before doing this.
Possibly related to this, I discovered when setting up WiFi that the phone had the whole list of WiFi spots from my tablet. The tablet allows me to select and delete these and I occaisonally do some housekeeping. Most are hotels that I probably won't be using again. I couldn't find the option of deleting WiFi locations on the Radiant. This can get to be a pretty long list without a way to clear it out.
6. I haven't tried calling ZTE support. My experience with contacting the original manufacturer of a product sold by another company (AT&T) has always been "You need to go to (AT&T) for support. AT&T support is horrible. They seem to know less than I do.
The manual has been of little help. I've searched the web for a real support forum for this phone but haven't found a place where I can get solutions, or at least confirmation that "this phone won't do that, and never will."
I hate to be all negative in this review so I'll say that as a phone it's OK, at least no worse than phones I've had in the past that don't have the smart features. I'd like to enjoy the new tools I can carry in my pocket, and I know I need to give it a little more time, but I don't think I'm looking for anything unreasonable. If it continues to baffle and stifle me, I'll be giving it up and going back to my dumb phone.
I don't have a referece for comparison. Maybe they're all quirky in their own ways, and maybe that's why there are so many different ones (and discontinued ones). I wish I could believe that software based products would be continually updated and little annoyances fixed, but they don't seem to be addressing my annoyances. (Posted on 11/9/2014)
