An attractive, yet inexpensive phone

I work in a cellphone store so ive had a few different models of phones ranging from the iphone 5s to the galaxy s 4 o one of my favorites the alcatel one touch idol 3 but I have to say this ZTE Grand X 3 has been one of my favorites. Love the battery life, the gorilla glass, the 16gb memory, the sound quality and the elegant look and feel it has to it. Honestly the only thing I dislike is that it doesn't have screen mirroring as an option but there's always ways around that so all in all I recommend this phone for anyone looking for as well priced durable phone. ZTE got it right with this one. Less
