ZTE's latest prepaid phablet has just been unveiled on MetroPCS.

The ZTE Blade Z Max is this year's phablet, that comes after the ZTE ZMAX Pro offered on the T-Mobile prepaid brand.

The Blade Z Max includes a 6-inch display with a 1920x1080 resolution. From within, the phablet runs on a Snapdragon 435 processor with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage is available, and a microSD card slot for memory expansion. There is a dual camera setup on the back with a 16-megapixel main sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. In front, the phablet has an 8-megapixel sensor for selfies and video calls. The phablet also includes a fingerprint reader on the back. A 4,080mAh battery is available on the back of the phone and it comes with Quick Charge 2.0 technology. Upon release, the phablet runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS.

As announced by MetroPCS, the Blade Z Max will launch on the prepaid brand on August 28th. It comes with a $129 price tag. It's definitely a good choice if you're in the market for an affordable phone from MetroPCS.

  3. This phone needs 3gb of ram because the zte max xl a similar phone idles at 80 percent ram which is what i think causes it to glitch

    1. That's not what causes the glitchiness. 80% RAM in use is normal and expected even on phones with 6 GB RAM. Android tries to keep as many activities (apps and screens) in memory as possible to speed up transitions between screens and apps. If you launch an app that's not in RAM, the OS will remove the least used app(s) from memory to make room for the new one.

    2. So Dennis, what caused the glitchiness in your opinion? I want to like this phone (Boost ZTE MAX XL), when you read users reviews, some said it's a great phone and some said it could be a great phone if it wasn't for the glitchiness.

    3. Glitches like freezing and simultaneous reboots are generally caused by software bugs or hardware design or manufacturing defects or component failure. Software bugs in carrier, manufacturer or 3rd party apps are a possible cause. I'd try a factory reset and disabling or removing carrier and manufacture bloatware.

  4. ? What can you find in the states that compares to this at $99? There's probably only a phone or two in the states that even has that processor and they're not going to be under $200

    1. If your last phone upgrade was at least 90 days ago you can purchase a phone for the same price as a new customer which is usually less than full retail. Metro PCS hasn't said if the $129 price is the full price or the new user price. Check the MetroPCS site for the upgrade price after the phone goes on sale.

  6. Doesn't last year's Zmax Pro have a faster CPU?

    1. Yes, the ZTE Zmax Pro has a Snapdragon 617.

      Delete
    2. I suspected that as well. The move to downgrade the processor doesn't make sense. The Snapdragon 435 performance isn't noteworthy by any means.

      Delete
    3. The new model has a bigger battery but a slower processor. Doesn't seem like a good trade off to me.

    They are all classed as phablets, phones that are as large as tablets.
    What I want is a small tablet, that its classed as a tablet but has cellular capabilities.

    1. I don't think there are any tablets smaller than 7 inches.

    2. Playbook 4GLTE. Great speakers, 600X1024 display, LTE bands 4 and 17.
      It is about 5 years out of date and the browser sucks. :P

  9. Junk phones. $50 toys for the kids.

    1. Yeah, they're junk but you can't beat the price and they work well for basic use. They're not designed for gaming or high end use: just basic everyday devices for communication.

  10. I'd be all over this if it came in 4.5-5", I don't want to carry a tablet in my pocket.

  11. Thankfully, the market for too small to use phones has dried up.
