Recently purchased this phone through ZTE with the $100 discount. This phone is almost a carbon copy of my wife's Samsung S9+. For a couple hundred less, this phone is a definite value. I do the find the Samsung to be a bit more inferior in some ways, with the the ease of access to most settings, adjustments, etc. But definitely not for the price differential! I'm very happy with this phone, and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a high performance phone for much less money. Incidentally, for those of you who enjoy a hifi listening experience. Even though this phone doesn't have the traditional headphone jack which is common with the ZTE phones of the past. It does come with the USB type C headphone jack converter. It features the sound chip "DTS X Ultra", which is amazing! I find it to be as good, if not better than Dolby Atmos.
