Reviews for the ZTE Blade X Max

80% ZTE Blade X Max
Source: PC Mag English
For $150, the ZTE Blade X Max offers great value for the price. You get solid overall performance, a big, bright 1080p screen, the latest Android software, and a fingerprint sensor. We like it just a smidge more than the Max 2, but if you really want dual-band Wi-Fi or a slightly faster processor, that phone remains a strong option. The LG Stylo 3 is another alternative worth considering if you like to take a lot of notes, thanks to its useful built-in stylus, but it costs $20 more and has a lower-resolution display. That makes the ZTE Blade X Max your best overall bet, and our Editors' Choice on Cricket.

Qualcomm Adreno 505: Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
435: Lower mainstream octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 SoC clocked at up to 1.4 GHz and the Adreno 505 GPU, a DDR3L-1600 memory controller as well as an X9 LTE (Cat. 7) modem. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


ZTE is short for Zhong Xing Telecommunication Equipment Company Limited, which was founded in China in 1985. The product range includes, for example, USB sticks, routers, smartphones and tablets.

The ratings of the relatively many reviews have a wide range from below-average to very good (as of 2016).

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
