Not-so-slick Agent

The ZTE Agent is a $69 prepaid phone for MetroPCS. While a fine price on contract, the slim feature set, questionable design decisions, and poor call quality make it hard to recommend.

Tall and slim--too slim?

While we like the Agent's slimness, a narrow face translated into narrow navigation buttons and Talk and End buttons. We do like the scalelike dialpad buttons for easy pressing, as well as the music player shortcut key.

The ZTE Agent has a volume rocker, camera shutter, Micro-USB charging port, and 3.5-millimeter headset jack on its spines. An up-to-16GB expandable memory card slot is unmarked beneath the back cover.

Camera close-up

The 1.3 megapixel camera may not produce other than your run-of-the-mill photos and choppy videos, but we do like the self-portrait mirror on the back.
