CNET First Look
ZTE C78As a simple phone for making calls, the ZTE gets the job done. We appreciate the stereo Bluetooth, but we wish the volume were louder.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Kent German, Senior Editor at CNET.com. Today we'll take a first look at the ZTE C78. This is a new phone from MetroPCS service. It is a basic candy bar phone. It doesn't have a lot going on with it, standard button arrangement, standard display. It's not the highest resolution screen we've seen, but it's perfectly fine for this caliber of phone. Navigations are in keypad buttons are pretty well designed, pretty spacious. These silver keys in the middle which is the Back key and the speaker phone maybe a little bit small, but otherwise didn't have a problem there, pretty tactile, pretty easy to use. Keypad buttons, same story. On the back you'll see the camera lens right here, no flash or self portrait mirror. On the back you'll also see that there is a speaker. Inside you'll find the VGA camera you will find Bluetooth which is nice, basic organizer features, speaker phone, web-based email, messaging, so really the low-end of the feature scale, but the Bluetooth is a nice touch and the VGA camera actually takes decent pictures for a VGA shooter. I'm Kent German and this is the ZTE C78. ^M00:01:01 [ Music ]
