ZTE Grand X Max+ has more memory, improved camera over predecessor


If you’re a phablet lover and are either already on Cricket or in the hunt for a new carrier, you may want to turn your attention to ZTE’s newest offering.

The ZTE Grand X Max+ is the successor to the Grand X Max that launched last year. While the Grand X Max+ has the same 6-inch display as its predecessor, it’s gotten spec bumps in many other places, including its rear camera (13-megapixel versus 8-megapixel), front camera (5-megapixel wide angle versus 1-megapixel), RAM (2GB versus 1GB), and more.

The full spec rundown for the ZTE Grand X Max+ looks like this:

  • 6-inch HD touchscreen
  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • 5-megapixel front camera with wide angle lens
  • 16GB of storage
  • microSD card slot
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 3200mAh battery
  • Qualcomm Quick Charge 1.0
  • Dolby Audio for “premium sound”
  • 4G LTE connectivity

Cricket will begin selling the ZTE Grand X Max+ in stores and online beginning January 9. Pricing will be set at $199.99, which is pretty affordable compared to many other phablet-sized smartphones on the market.

    My mom has the 2014 model and I had the chance to play with it over the holidays.

    Honestly, it’s a fantastic affordable phone. It was very responsive. The screen was clear and has brilliant colors.

    I lean towards the highend phablet devices but have noticed that ZTE has NAILED it with this device. Highly recommend it to those that want the size for a lower price than the Note series, but also want good specs.
