1.) Better options out there That have better specs with higher clock speeds and faster processor at around similar price or less
2.) No NFC, Known to be very bad with its updates on its phones
3.)Many issues in regards to build quality, got many returns compared to other manufactures ZTE was the worst.
4.)No in store swap if issue with the phone, warranty.
5.)No price promotions like port in deals, instant rebates etc..
i wasn’t going make a video bought this phone because as of Nov 1 hasnt been confirmed to come to any prepaid carrier but i had a lot of people message me if this phone was better then the LG stylo 4 .so i wanted to just weigh my honest opinion.And Before you guys get salty in the comment section if you guys are new to my channel i just want to mention that i dont sugar coat for any carrier or phone manufacturer so im going tell you guys like it is because at the end of the day i want to make sure you as the consumer are getting the best bang for your buck. So Just keep in mind if you can’t take criticism lightly because you stand tight to a brand you love i respect that but this video is not for ZTE fan boys. By the way if this phone does eventually come out to a pre paid carrier and drops in price with promotions and rebates then that gives a better incentive in buying this phone. Lets get started
Now for the moment of truth who is the winner
Ok now what is that i hear, there is no winner because it depends on consumer preference well then lets break that down for them
If you dont care for NFC , dont care for the Stylus pen, and your on the market for a unlocked device to take with you to any carrier without being locked down with them for a couple months then this ZTE phones are for you. But if your sticking with your carrier then might as well take advantage of there device promotions while your with them or porting to a diffrent carrier. and get one of the phones they have on sale. That is my conclusion
