First Look: ZTE reaches high with its Warp Sequent from Boost

1:21 /

The ZTE Warp Sequent is available contract-free on Boost's 3G network and is equipped with a 4.3-inch display, Android 4.0, a 1.4GHz processor, and a 5-megapixel camera.

Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET, bringing you guys the ZTE Warp Sequent from Boost Mobile. The Warp Sequent is one of the higher-end devices from ZTE and frankly, it's one of the better constructed handsets we have seen from them. It's equipped with a 4.3-inch qHD touch screen that's sensitive to the touch. It's powered by a 1.4 Gigahertz processor, and it has a 1.65 Amp-hour battery, which roughly translates to 8 hours of reported talk time. The Sequent also ships natively with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Now, although it doesn't run pure Android, the phone offers a pretty skinless experience. So, those who like themselves some Vanilla ICS would really appreciate this device as relative lack of bloatware and third-party UI. On the front, there's a 1.3 megapixel camera and on the other side is a 5 megapixel camera that includes a few features like panoramic shooting and composition lines. The phone includes 768 megabytes of RAM and it has a microSD card slot inside. Unfortunately, the device only runs on Boost 3G network. Users can purchase it from the carrier without a contract for about $200. Again, I am Lynn, and this has been the ZTE Warp Sequent from Boost.
