Customer Reviews

It's okay for most Review by josh
It has been a good phone for most things. The camera is horrible. Looks like 2MP pictures. It says setting has stopped every time you hang up from a call. ZTE should send a update to fix the settings issue but they won't. Besides the camera and setting has stopped issue it has been great. Very durable and does everything else well.
