Reviews for the ZTE Blade Z Max

77% ZTE Blade Z Max review
Source: Android Authority English
The ZTE Blade Z Max brings a lot to the table with its dual camera setup, fingerprint scanner, large display, and even larger battery. The only small thing about this device is its price point. While initially launched at a very affordable $130, the device is currently available from MetroPCS for just $99!

Although it certainly isn't competition for higher-end handsets, the ZTE Blade Z Max is a midrange powerhouse in the MetroPCS lineup. For $129 you get a big screen and battery, along with capable performance and a dual-camera setup that provides capabilities usually only found in more expensive devices. It's a great deal for the price, and a worthy successor to the ZMax Pro. If you're looking for something smaller, the Moto E4 is available for the same price and offers a similar level of performance. But for everyone who loves a big screen, the Blade Z Max is our Editors' Choice.

84% ZTE Blade Z MAX – a potential game-changer in the budget smartphone scene (Review)

I feel like it’s utterly redundant of me to say that this phone is an amazing value if you’re on the Metro network, or if you can buy it at retail and unlock it for use on T-Mobile or AT&T. At $130, that’s certainly an option. The Blade Z Max, as mentioned above, is a tremendous value phone for people that don’t need a workhorse phone.

Mark 2017 down as the year that premium phones started to cost more than tablets and laptops. But it will also be the year that phones under $200 finally started to deliver. The Blade Z Max is one of the best of the bunch.

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.
