Reviews for the ZTE Grand X2 Z850

ZTE Grand x 2 Z850
Source: BC Hardware English
Up until the Grand X Plus, I'd never used a ZTE device before and just like many other people here in North America, I thought that ZTE might be more of a "budget quality" device. After using these last two devices exclusively for over a month each, my thoughts have changed a bit. The phone certainly isn't a flagship device, but it's a whole lot more than a budget device as well.
