Conclusion: ZTE continues to make solid handsets for the budget minded, but their problem is that they just can’t stack up with the big boys. The display, system performance and build quality are all good, but not great, and the Vital takes a serious hit in the phone performance categories. Despite being aging, previous flagships like the HTC EVO 4G LTE and LG Optimus G remain more compelling offerings at the same price point.
Pros: Display is vibrant but natural and works well in all lighting conditions, Mostly stock build of Android, Good fit and finish
Cons: Poor phone performance and questionable battery life, Camera doesn’t hold up to rigorous testing, Could use a second GB of RAM
