bad screen Review by Chad
The screen is unresponsive, randomly shuts off, and is soooo slow. I've owned many smart phones and this is the worst - See more at: (Posted on 4/18/2015)

Terrible product Review by brynn
I bought one of these to use with Straight Talk. The screen is unresponsive, randomly shuts off, and is soooo slow. I've owned many smart phones and this is the worst. I know it's an inexpensive phone, but still think it'd be a ripoff if it was free with a cell carrier. (Posted on 1/22/2015)

ZTE Whirl (straighttalk) Review by Sequoyah2703
This phone is really slow. Sometimes the touchscreen doesn't work and this phone is really unpredictable. Very unsatisfied with this phone. (Posted on 9/21/2014)
