I'll admit I'm an underdog fan of ZTE..It all started when Samsung started pricing their phones over 500 bucks..So I took a chance on a ZTE Lever and so glad I did. .What I found out was I didn't have too spend a bundle for a great quality phone and it had almost everything I wanted..I then used a Max Duo...I eagerly awaiting the next ZTE phone..and promised myself I would support ZTE when it came out..The BLADE MAX VIEW exceeds almost ALL my expectations..I caved in and bought a Styo 4 a few months ago and while it is a nice phone , it didn't have that "ZTE CAMERA LOOK that makes everyone say . "WoW ..that's a great picture.. " When I saw this phone was finally available , I ordered immediately right from ZTE..The battery is just incredible..and the camera takes such stunning pictures I can't wait to take more..So I've had the phone a while and it's a hit..I had issues with call quality which I found out were related to VOLTE on Verizon network ..No fault of the phone ..Just that VOLTE is not that good yet .....I turned that off and it's call quality is very good...but it's a great option to have if I need it. If your a ZTE Max fan..You will love this phone..They got everything right with this one..Display , Sound ,Battery , Size , and the Camera perform better than any other phone in this price range..I hope the prepaid carriers pick ZTE back up in the future..But ZTE is setting the NEW standard for budget phones. I just love my Blade View ..Thank you ZTE for making a comeback in the US.
