Ok I think I may have figured out why apps like spotify are stopping after 15 minutes or so!!
After reading about all the reports about Spotify and other apps stopping after 15 minutes and tested it myself and sure enough I have the same issue. And it's not even just 15 minutes as I actually had it play my music for 21 minutes or so this morning before stopping on it's own. It is happening on both wifi and data. Also I noticed a few other issues with apps this morning for the first time since owning the phone like Fox News app telling me I have no internet connection when I clearly do. And also Pandora not allowing me to log in when on wifi because it thinks there is no internet connection when I switched to data it allowed me to log in. So it's either a software issue that hopefully can be fixed with an update in the near future or it's a hardware issue with a faulty WiFi/data card in which case is obviously a big problem!
I just hope ZTE lets us know soon as I don't know what to do because other then this issue and it's a bug annoying one I really like this phone. And I bought 2 of them from B & H Photo with the 3 extra freebies. And so if I return both phones I will have to send everything back and most likely have to pay for shipping. And then there's the issue where I transferred tracfone accounts on both phones. So I would have to get another phone and transfer again before sending this one back.
If ZTE could guarantee me this issue will be fixed I would keep the phone but I am guessing that is not something they can do right now. I guess this is what happens when you buy a cheap phone although $230 is not actually cheap but compared to an iphone or even a One Plus 3 I guess it is. I really did not want to have to pay over $300 for a phone but it looks like I may have to to get better quality one.
Do other ZTE phones have issues like this?
Man this really sucks
