T-Mobile is expanding its budget phone selection by adding ZTE‘s ZMAX PRO to its lineup. The ZMAX PRO is available now for the off-contract price of $129. The ZMAX PRO continues ZTE’s attempts to blur the lines between budget devices and premium flagships by offering a compelling package at an unbelievable price.


The ZTE ZMAX PRO has a 6″ 1080p IPS LCD display shielded by Gorilla Glass 3, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of Expandable Storage, a 3400 mAh battery, and a 13 MP main camera. The ZMAX also features a fingerprint reader for added security and Android 6.0 Marshmellow.

ZTE released the ZMAX PRO earlier this summer at Metro PCs for the low price of $99 (after mail-in rebate). The ZMAX PRO carried by T-Mobile will be an identical device, but without the associated savings. The choice ultimately comes down to a $30 price difference and what carrier you want to buy your device through. At $99 or $129, ZTE has created an extremely convincing package for the budget conscious consumer.

  1. Now the question is really just whether or not it’s a decent device. The stats and price are great for anyone not looking for gaming or VR. But is it a laggy piece of trash? Nobody knows.
