Not bad for what it is
People give this phone bad reviews, honestly, it's a $30 GoPhone, what'd you expect, an s8? Be real, this phone is meant to be used for a BASIC smartphone. With this being said, I have the phone on ATT GoPhone. I was tired of my phone contract going up every month on my personal carrier which shall not be mentioned, and canceled with them and ported my number over to this phone as work already provides me with a different phone. As someone who does use their phone a lot, texting, calling etc. I can honestly say, although the screen is a bit grainy, it does everything just about as fast as my previous phone (V20) and coupled with ATT's network is ultra fast. I have a 32GB memory card, and have also disabled the bloatware. It starts up VERY fast, and app switching has not been a problem. You probably got bad units. Everyone that says you can't remove the bloatware is mistaken, and it can be removed under settings or by just disabling it-- you don't need a root, and it runs an ALMOST stock ver of Android without doing much tinkering. Yeah, you paid 30$US, don't complain about the phone. You bought a cheap phone, yeah it's a cheaper phone, but it serves it's purpose and I feel it's almost overserved.
WTG ZTE. You really did good this time around.
