Boost Getting $99.99 ZTE Warp 7 With 5.5" Screen, Marshmallow and 2 GB RAM

ZTE Warp 7

According to this leaked image from a Boost dealer site that a tipster sent me, Boost Mobile is getting a new phone soon to replace the well regarded ZTE Warp Elite. It's the ZTE Warp 7 and it looks like a good deal for $99.99 . According to the screenshot, the Warp 7 has a 5.5 inch HD screen, Android Marshmallow 6.0, 16 GB of internal memory, 2 GB of RAM an unnamed 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 13 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras and a 3080 mAh battery.

Phonearena.com has some additional unofficial specs including that the battery is removable (the Warp Elite's is not), screen resolution is 720 x 1280 px and that there's support for microSD cards up to 32 GB.

The Warp 7 looks like to me like a CDMA version of Cricket's ZTE Grand X 3 with the same screen size and resolution and same battery and processor specs. The only obvious differences between the two are that the Warp 7 has higher resolution cameras, 2 and 5 MP vs 8 and 2 MP and a newer Android version, 6.0 vs 5.

  1. Cricket's ZTE Grand X 3 is said to be very sluggish.

  2. Why does Boost keep stocking these terrible phones. Bring the Moto G4, Alcatel Idol 4, Honor 8, Nexus. Nobody wants to be on the nations worst network with the nations worst phone. What kind of profit margin could they possibly earn on these junkers when they're losing a massive amount of customers.

    1. Pretty sure at least a couple of those are GSM-only & their makers are unlikely to expend any effort on a CDMA version unless Verizon is buying.

    2. I love misery, so I only use a Wrap phone on the Boost network, in the basement, with my own duct-tape screen protector.

    3. Yeah, I concur there's little chance Alcatel or Honor would make CDMA variants for Boost or even Sprint itself. As the Moto G4 and (newer) Nexus phones they're compatible AND FUNCTIONAL on the Sprint network and can be bought unlocked from their manufacturers or stores like best buy with no need to even bother going into the shady side of town to find a boost store.

  3. Don't all the prepaid carriers have these entry-level phones to bring in customer?

    GSMarena says Grand X 3 has snapdragon 212 chipset.

    1. Nope, because for $60 less than this piece of crap, you can get a ZTE Zmax Pro from MetroPCS ($40 after instant in-store rebate and $60 credit for a port-in, real or fake).

  4. How is the Wrap 7 any better than the Wrap Elite aside from the OS?

    1. Removable battery (suspected but not confirmed) and the price at launch is lower, $99.99 vs. $179.99.

      On the other hand if the Warp 7 does have a Snapdragon 212, that chip benchmarks substantially lower than the Warp Elite's SD 410.

    2. I think the Wrap 7 comes with a veggie option, while the Wrap Elite only allows ham or turkey.

    4. It's WARP not WRAP!!!

    5. No, it's a wrap, for boost and sprint, that is!

  5. "Boost"

    Into the trash it goes!

    Between Sprint's shoddy native network and the inability to activate them on RingPlus, Boost phones are little more than glorified paperweights.

    Even if you're looking for a wifi-only mini-tablet, there are cheaper alternatives with comparable specs currently (or soon to be) on sale.

    Honestly, I don't even know why Sprint bothers with new phones.

    They need to get their network up to par first.

    2. WE sell the zte warp elite and with a snapdragon 410 it blows away this new model warp 7, Also the warp elite is on promo for $79 for all new or upgrade customers, And $29 on port in to boost, I know alot of you guys hate on boost/sprint for the past issues with networks, but sprint has done alot to improve network in last few years, I now offer unlimited LTE data for $45 a month and get speed tests of 40 down and 20 up at my shop

    3. The coverage is still terrible. And increasingly distant fourth . They've done little or nothing to improve their network for years now.

      I get 3g only on Sprint while Verizon and AT&T have full LTE, so even when it has coverage it can be bad .

    4. I just checked the specs on the ZTE Warp Elite and ZTE Warp 7 regarding the I.2Ghz CPU and they are both Qualcomm MSM8916 (according to Boost's website specs). So, other than Android 6.0 vs. Android 5.1,a removable battery and possible 4-6 hrs more battery time, worth $20?

      Delete
    5. The removable battery is worth $20 extra to some people.

  8. this needs the fingerprint sensor to make it competitive with the one released on metro or cricket

  9. Yes its the ZTE X3 with better specs.

    1. That's debatable.

      Sprint's bands are some of the worst specs a phone can have.

  10. even if you are in an area where you can get decent service from sprint, they download lots of useless bloatware lousy apps to your phone with out your consent. those junk apps ca NOT be uninstalled or disabled. which means stuff you do not use uses up both rom and ram, to say nothing of data . that is the main reason why you should avoid sprint. they are much worse than other carriers on this subject.

    1. Sprint has many faults but I don't consider excessive bloatware installs to be one of them. The Boost Moto E that I use on RingPlus came with hardly any bloatware at all. My Sprint S6 on FreedomPop was no worse than what I see on AT&T and Verizon devices.

      Also, any Android app can be disabled using Gates Jr's Debloater: V3.90 Debloater(Lets remove all that carrier bloat !! Root not required..) - xda-developers. Debloater is free.

  11. Aren't iPhones pretty free of bloatware from the start?

    1. Yes bloatware is universal amoung all androids. Sprint is also giving all boost customers free roaming over all other networks, Have you seen the new coverage map? It is the whole country, anywhere there is a cell tower. Give boost a try again and I think you will be surprised.

    2. "Sprint is also giving all boost customers free roaming over all other networks"

      Be honest here. Is Boost giving you roaming on T-Mobile or AT&T?

      I rather doubt it...

      And does the roaming include generous data the same as on native Sprint/Boost?

      Of course not.

      The only surprise will be that you were fooled into trying Boost. A crippled version of the now fourth-place network.

      Delete
  12. The Elite and 7 can't be rooted, so if you plan on trying Boost then stick with the free Sync.

    Otherwise, you'll be locked out of your own phone because the overbearing Nanny McGoogle thinks grown adults shouldn't be allowed outside of the sandbox.

    I wish they'd just include root access as a PIN protected toggle instead of sacrificing liberty for security, because the reality is that Android has no real security thanks to carriers not patching older/cheaper phones.

    1. There's no security and blootware because of Google who chose to make their software open source! That was Google's worse mistake. I hope after Android Zero Bar we get a real OS and a real Google Phone! I'm sick of them playing second fiddle to you know who!

      Delete
    2. With Samsung sales figures this year, probably Apple might be "second fiddle" now.
