ZTE Zmax Pro Review

ZTE has already shown us how many phones you can get for $200 with the Grand X Max 2 for Cricket Wireless. And now, in a bid to outdo itself, ZTE takes aim at the $180 price point with the ZMax Pro for T-Mobile users.

The ZMax Pro boasts a six-inch HD screen, expandable storage, fingerprint sensor, USB-C, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front shooter, 2-gigabytes of RAM, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor.

Is the ZMax Pro enough phone for the budget-minded T-Mobile user? Let’s take a look.

At some point, the madness of manufacturers trying to outdo one another with a bigger phablet has to end. We’ve seen Samsung reach 5.7-inches on Note7, but the company made admirable efforts to minimize the overall footprint of the device, making it feel smaller than it truly was.

At 6-inches, the ZMax Pro is huge. “Yuge” even, with ZTE doing very little to try and hide its bulk.

It’s a difficult device to hold with one hand and doesn’t fit in my jeans pocket. Nor does it fit in my car’s cupholder.

As someone who admittedly didn’t get the fad of bigger-screened smartphones at first, I now love them. But at some point, this has to stop. I propose it stops with the ZMax Pro.

The ZMax Pro’s saving grace is the grippable material used to cover its back, making it easier to hold on to than if the company had used smooth plastic—a mainstay on inexpensive smartphones.

On the right side of the phone are the power and volume buttons, with the SIM tray and microSD card holder on the left side. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back of the device, which is actually a convenient spot considering how big the phone is and the hassle it’d be to constantly reach down to the bottom of the screen with your thumb to unlock it.

I suppose if you have really big hands, the ZMax Pro is a good fit. For nearly everyone else, it’s too much phone to handle.

ZTE Zmax Pro Charger

The ZTE ZMAX Pro is a relatively inexpensive phone that supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 1.0 protocol via its USB Type-C port. Unfortunately, the included power adapter does not indicate that it is certified for Qualcomm Quick Charge as it does not have the Quick Charge icon. That being said, we could still measure the power it provides using a fixture that lets us measure the current as well as the voltage supplied.

With the remaining battery at around 4%, we see the following measurements:

The voltage was at around 4.1 to 6.5 volts, and the current was between 1.9 and 2.1 amps.  This gives us anywhere between 8 and 14 watts of power with a rough average of 11 watts.

We can see that it took 52 minutes to charge from 4% to 60%.  In the end, it took a little less than two hours for ZTE’s ZMAX Pro to charge from 4% to full battery.

ZTE Zmax Pro 2

At just $100, ZTE’s unbelievably inexpensive yet fully-featured ZMax Pro was one of the great tech bargains of 2016. Between its 6-inch Full HD display, octa-core processor, tasteful, understated design, long-lasting battery, and fingerprint sensor, the ZMax Pro fended off competition from Motorola, Huawei, and Asus to immediately become one of our favorite budget phones when it debuted last summer.

Unfortunately, it was only available on smaller carriers like Cricket Wireless. Still, it appears ZTE is preparing a follow-up to the price-conscious phablet. Although we are still in the early stages, here is everything we know about the ZMax Pro’s successor.

ZTE Zmax Pro Metropcs

The ZMax Pro is monstrously big, and sort of cool looking. The phone dwarfs nearly every other phone on my desk and yet it manages to stand out for reasons other than its size. The phone’s design is relatively conservative, yet unique.

From a distance, the ZMax Pro could be a clone of the Grand X Max 2, also made by ZTE (sold by Cricket Wireless). The phones share a black glass, gray frames, and blue-colored rear panels. The differences are small but important. On the functional side, the ZMax Pro has a fingerprint reader. On the design side, ZTE gave the Grand X Max 2 a glossy rear cover, while the ZMax Pro has a matte, soft-touch rear cover that catches the eye thanks to its deep hue.

The ZMax Pro has a huge 6-inch screen. It’s a respectable 0.35 inches (8.9mm) thick. At 6.17 ounces, it is lighter than the Grand X Max 2, but not by much. The ZMax Pro is in no way a one-handed phone. My thumb can barely stretch across half the display, leaving the top portion unreachable. Many phones this size include a stylus, but that would have added to the cost here. The phone barely fits into jean pockets; even when it does, the phone isn’t all that comfortable. For example, it jammed into my leg every time I sat down. It fits better in rear pockets, but putting your phone there carries serious risk.

The phone is made of decent materials, especially for this price point. The 2.5D curved glass feels smooth and strong, while the polycarbonate frame inspires confidence, and the rear panel is pleasing to the touch. My only complaint on build quality is the SIM card tray, which is noticeable thanks to some gaps. Otherwise, the phone is put together tightly; it doesn’t look nor feel cheap.

Is the ZTE ZMax Pro a good phone?

The Good The ZTE ZMax Pro has a solid build, an expansive screen, and an exceptionally low price tag. The Bad It’s only available on MetroPCS for now, it doesn’t have NFC, and the battery charges slowly. The Bottom Line If you’re willing to use MetroPCS’ network, the ZTE ZMax Pro is a great big-screen phone for cheap.

What size is the ZTE ZMax pro?

The phone comes with a 6.00-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels. ZTE ZMax Pro is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 MSM8952 processor. It comes with 2GB of RAM.

How much is the ZTE ZMax pro at MetroPCS?

Jeff Yee, a ZTE executive, holds up the ZMax Pro at an event in New York. ZTE continues to press its advantage on big, affordable phones. The Chinese handset manufacturer on Monday unveiled the ZMax Pro, an exclusive jumbo-sized phone for prepaid carrier MetroPCS. The phone costs $99 after a MetroPCS instant rebate.
