Lookin' pretty there

Compared to most ZTE devices of its class, the Engage LT has a higher-quality build and a more stylish look. I like its smooth, matte-silver finish and sturdy construction.

It's winking at you

Unfortunately, weighing in at 5.09 ounces, it's a bit heavy. I noticed how dense it felt almost immediately when I held it in my hand.

A little too thick

In addition, its 0.44-inch profile is quite thick, but you'll still be able to fit it in your pockets or bag.

For the audio speaker

On the back are a camera lens and flash. Below those is a single horizontal slit for the audio speaker. The battery door is easily removable via a small indent on the left edge of the rear plate. Once off, you can access the battery and microSD card slot.
