Was perfect as a backup holiday phone, but really poor quality at the end ...

Summary: Nice features and lots of speed for the price, but gets extremely hot while providing WiFi as a hotspot. Poor camera and GPS is fading out after 1 year of usage (now I have to wait approx. 10 Min. for GPS positioning even in good conditions). Was perfect as a backup holiday phone .....
Summary: This is among the worst smartphones on the market. I bought it from Metro as I was a bit hesitant to get into contracts. The phone started going off by itself in less than a week. It would also go off during charging and switching it on would be a tag of war. I could bear with that since i discovered i could remove the battery and put it back then it would turn on. My worst nightmare was the fact that people could not hear me from the other side however much I shout.
Summary: 4G and no contracts needed. Has all the flags and whistles. However this model along with it's SIM Cards are no longer serviced by Metro PCS. So you will need to either buy parts through the internet and or cannibalize old phones for parts. Should be good for another 2 to 4 years at the most till even more newer tech comes around where you just have to buy a newer phone.(prices should go down too). Get this phone and you'll be saying..."I'm good".
Specs are good, call quality is downright terrible

Summary: Like most reviewers, I found the speed, responsiveness, and overall quality of the ZTE Avid to be pretty good. The screen is better than it gets credit for, and the volumes seem fine to me. Where it becomes almost useless (not hyperbole) is when you try to make a call with it. Signal reception is spotty, at best, but the true downfall of the phone is the microphone. Please understand me when I tell you the microphone is near unusable.
Summary: No One can hear me unless I talk directly into the mic. Everyone says it sounds like I'm in a tunnel.Speaker phone is terrible. Metro will only give you the same phone again for warranty. I've been through three phones with the same problem so obviously its a bad design. Save your money and get a name brand!!
Summary: this phone is great for the price. i was looking for something different than a lg motion since everyone got that phone and it is amazing! the speed,screen,camera,and gaming is awesome! i recommend this phone to a new user or even a android user.
