Tom's Guide

A good bargain

from Tom's Guide
There's no real standout feature with the Zmax 2, but there's no real noteworthy flaw, either. In a sub-$100 phone — particularly one with better-than-average battery life like ZTE's device — that's pretty ideal. People who depend on their smartphone as a camera may want to consider other low-cost options, such as the Moto E. But if you're willing to live with the occasional blurry shot, the Zmax 2 is one of the better sub-$100 phones available to AT&T customers... Full review

Mediocre camera quality is a notable drag, but it's a capable phone if you're on a tight budget

from Cnet
Ultimately, the ZMax 2 is worth buying if you absolutely won't spend more than $100 all in, but if you've got some flexibility, I'd suggest just about any other phone with a better camera Ultimately, when it comes to the ZMax 2, you'll need to make some compromises (namely with the camera). But the device performs reliably, has clear call quality, and a solid battery life... Full review

Affordable, sturdy design, solid audio

from PC Magazine
With a good design and a low price, the Zmax 2 stands out against other prepaid phones on AT&T in terms of price and performance. However, the unlocked ZenFone 2 Laser and the One Touch Idol 3 offer more powerful processors, higher-resolution displays, and better cameras than the Zmax 2, and $70 seems like a small price to pay for these improvements...

THE VOLUME IS HORRRRRRRRIBLE

The volume on the ZMAX 2 is awwwful. When I record a video, I can't hear a damn thing! Is there anyway to raise the volume. The volume output hole is tiny. John W. Miller

Volume is horrible; can't hear a thing when playing back a video. I know the phone is inexpensive, but this is ridiculous.
