Phone works really good apps are fast to load Review by Yaye
Updates when need calls are fast and Service runs great on Cricket with AT&T (Posted on 7/31/2018)
WTF Review by Lisa
The ZTE Grand X 3 worked looked and felt wonderfully delightful for the first month or so. Put as any relationship does it started to go south. When I turn the phone back on, after being off for charging, half my apps are not on the home screens I put them on. It has wanted to update the system but I always get system update failed!!??? I paid 79.99 for his phone and would NOT recommend it to anyone. (Posted on 4/4/2017)
How is this possible Review by Tracey
I am tempted to get another ZTE Device however I would need to know if it is safe to get said device. Now I remember record players and CD Players you get a little scratch on one of these media music skips. I have had SD cards for years and listening to music on SD cards. Corrupt files have been on some of these SD cards but never made music skip as much as this phone does. ALSO the bluetooth is always dropping. I am considering the ZTE Axon 7 with hopes that it does have NFC and I would hope the SD card and its music does not skip. (Posted on 11/26/2016)
Fantastic Smartphone Review by ALAN
Switched to Cricket after having problems with a Alcatel One Touch Fierce xl I had for only a month and wanted $20 to send phone back on warranty. I got the ZTE Grand X 3 for $30 incredible. Love the beveled 5.5 HD lcd screen. USB C charging with a removal battery are you kidding me? I use my Smartphones heavily and usely have to charge them at least 2 times a day. This phone lasts me about a day and a half. Really impressive. Camera is really good not great. The only con I have is I wished the speaker was a little louder. ZTE makes great smartphones I help my brother get a ZTE prepaid phone through AT&T over a year ago and he simply loves it. I will never buy a flagship Smartphone again. I would definitely buy another ZTE. (Posted on 11/3/2016)
Great phone for price. Review by Michael
I switched to cricket wireless because my brother was already there and he liked it so I joined as well. Got this phone for about $70 when I joined with Cricket and haven't had any issues. It's a pretty tough phone. I have dropped it several times and no visible damage or cracked screen. I have no problem with signal here in the Richmond Virginia area and even works inside my work which is a large manufacturing facility. I don't take a whole lot of pictures but the ones I have taken have turned out alright. Sometimes I did have to change some camera settings to get good results but I expect to have to do that from time to time. Overall, great phone for what I paid. (Posted on 10/30/2016)
Great But... Review by Liz
Love the look and feel of the product. I like how its so sleek and smooth. It responds fast in my opinion as to other reviews I've seen here. Haven't had any issues. I didn't like that the usb is a Type-C but doing my research it isn't so bad. It's reversible! So I give 2 big thumbs up for that! The only minor thing that I didn't like is that I can't organize my apps in the apps window to my liking. I like to organize them in order of what I use the most to the least. The phone automatically alphabetizes the app which is fine but not good enough. But overall, I like the phone. (Posted on 9/14/2016)
Save your money Review by want2bee
Unhappy with old carrier (net10) switched to Cricket. Bought this phone based on looks, feel, reviews. thought I was buying a premere phone from cricket. Signal is poor at best and inside most buildings I loose signal. If phone loses signal you have to reboot before you can use Chrome to internet surf. Phone never picks signal back up after loosing it. I'm rebooting 10 - 12 times a day. Watching signal meter you can see it is always hunting and when it finds a signal, it choose the lowest possible and I lose data connection. No tricks on internet to improve signal from this phone. Camera may be rated at megapixel but my photos lack depth color and brightness. Most are blurry and have to be retaken multiply times. keyboard is very sensitive to touch. Apps like facebook freeze. If I have to buy another phone to surf internet I may as well switch carriers too who sells a better product.. (Posted on 8/21/2016)
Exceeded all expectations! Review by Craig
I don't have high expectations for a phone that only cost $129. However, i was pleasantly surprised with the ZTE Grand X3. The screen is great on this phone at 5.5" with curved edges looks and feels great. The battery life is simple awesome without any real effort on my part. Dolby Audio works really well. Blown away at the Audio quality of this phone. Rocks and gets loud. Android 5.1.1 performs smoothly with no noticeable lag. 2gb Ram and 16gb Rom with an available sd slot and i have a fast 64gb sd card that works great. unbeatable specs for this price.

Yes, the processor is a little old and slow. Probably not great for gaming but runs day to day apps with not issues.

By far the weakest part of this phone is the camera. It takes a lot of blurry pictures.

Overall, and with the exception of the Camera performance you get a lot for cheap. (Posted on 6/10/2016)
It's a great phone, but... Review by Red
Awesome phone. I usually don't go for ZTE, but this phone was recommended. Works great. My ONLY real issue(s) is the fact texting is a hassle to go through and the phone struggles to hold a signal unless I'm on top of the tower. My phone, sitting in the same spot, will have perfect signal for a minute and than drops; then it's back and drops again. And so the cycle goes.

The signal literally blinks. This phone can't seem to hold a signal. Fix the issue, and this phone is the best I've had. (Posted on 6/8/2016)
Worst I have owned Review by Deirdre
Don't buy if you are expecting: 1. to get things done in hurry. Their processor sucks and it takes forever to load apps, freezes, won't let you access your SD card to view files but you can save stuff to it.. 2. the camera sucks too, worst pictures I have seen come from a phone and the video is horrible too. 3. Sound isn't what they say it is supposed to be and you can't even manipulate the Dolby app features to make the sound better. The only thing nice about this phone is the amount of storage, other than that I wish I never would have bought this phone and curse the lady at Cricket who sold it to me. I miss my old phone!
