ZTE ZMAX is a big T-Mobile phablet with a not so big price tag


Phablets are all the rage in the smartphone world as of late. Heck, even Apple has finally jumped on the bandwagon. Today ZTE unveiled its latest phablet effort, a device known as the ZMAX that’s headed to T-Mobile in the US.

The ZTE ZMAX will launch on September 24 for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $10.50 each. That works out to a total of $252. In exchange for all of those hard-earned pieces of paper, you’ll get a device with the following specs:

  • 5.7-inch 1280×720 display
  • 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor
  • 8-megapixel rear, 1.6-megapixel front cameras
  • 16GB storage
  • microSD slot with support for cards up to 32GB
  • 6.4” x 3.3” x 0.35” (162.56 x 83.82 x 8.89mm)
  • 3400mAh battery
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

With its big screen and big battery, the ZTE ZMAX is a phablet for folks that want a big phone but also want a device that’ll be easy on the wallet.

What do you think of the ZTE ZMAX? Would you use it as your daily driver?

    So, with the Huawei and Alcatel phones coming out this month and the Note 4 and the Apple, THIS is what t-mobile is offering their low-end phablet users?

    Has it come down this far? The thing has mediocre specs, looks like a palm and really has nothing outstanding about it at all.

    It my not be the latest and greatest spec, bit it’s better than good enough for most people. As a test I used a moto g f or 4 months, to see if I actually still needed ‘top specs’ as I knew in 2012 the one x/sgs3 where fine, so why did I keep needing better. So I went from my beloved note2 to a moto g, and it was a great device. Even played rr3 well.
    his phone will be more than up to the job. It does look ugly tho, far to square.

    I get enjoyed when people just see specs, that time had way past, it’s like buying a £1000 intel cpu just for Facebook.

    I’m more intrested in the Android one program and how far low end hardware can be pushed. Or at least how far the $ can be pushed.

    Also i ma hypocrite as I’m currently using an m8. But my point still stands. 😜
