Despite its rather lofty name, the ZTE Majesty is a simple, entry-level prepaid handset available on Straight Talk and Net10 wireless. Available for $169.99 online and at Walmart retail stores, the device runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is 3G-enabled.

The Majesty is equipped with a 4.5-inch capacitive touch screen with a 480x854-pixel resolution. So while you won't be watching the sharpest HD videos on it anytime soon, you can still view YouTube videos without a hitch.

On the back you'll find a 5-megapixel camera for all your informal photo opportunities, and on the front is a 0.3-megapixel camera.

The phone is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and a decently sized 2,000mAh battery, which has a reported talk time of 7.8 hours and a standby time of 15 days. Though it only has 768MB of internal memory, the device does come with a 4GB microSD card that can be further expanded up to 32GB.
