ZTE is the fourth largest smartphone supplier in the U.S. and the second largest in the no-contract market. This month they announced the availability of the next generation of the ZMAX series, the ZMAX PRO. It’s available through MetroPCS for the affordable price of $99.00 after instant rebate. The ZMAX PRO breaks new ground as it is the first US carrier supported phone under $100 that features a fingerprint sensor, and a 3400 mAh battery. But seriously, a $99 smartphone? How good can it be?
Well, the ZTE ZMAX PRO will surprise you with its high performance for such a competitive price. The phone is packed with many of the features you would expect from a phone costing significantly more including:
- A monster 6” Full HD LCD Display with resolution of 1920 x 1080.
- Powered by SnapDragon 617 1.5 GHz Octacore Processor, + 2 GB of RAM
- MicroSD slot
- Powerful 3,400 mAh embedded battery that lasts a full day
- Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS
- 13MP rear and 5MP front facing cameras
- 32 GB of internal memory upgradeable to 128 MB with the micro SD slot
- Fingerprint sensor for added security
MetroPCS has also added its own app store offering Metro PCS apps that come pre-installed on the device along with a variety of utilities and games, although in reality this is little more than a link to the Android app store. The ZTE ZMAX PRO also features a USB Type-C connector. The cameras have the ability to frame, shoot and edit pictures on the go. Power hungry video games are playable without pause or problems, although some apps can take a little longer to load.
Unusually, the ZTE ZMAX PRO also includes a Qualcomm® Quick Charge 1.0 enabling you to charge the phone up to 40% faster than older phones.
In terms of styling and comfort, although it’s a lot of phone, it’s comfortable to hold in the hand. The soft touch back features the fingerprint sensor, which is fast and accurate. It can also be used to quick launch apps based on the finger that you use and you can also answer phone calls just by pressing the sensor.
The original retail price of the phone is $179.99 but Metro PCS’ mail-in rebate offer whittles it down to just under the $100 price mark which makes this phone an exceptionally good deal.
