While it's not as high-tech as the USS Enterprise, the ZTE Engage is a contract-free handset available through Cricket Wireless. It sports a 4.3-inch screen, an 8-megapixel camera, and Android 4.0.

The 4.3-inch WVGA display has an 800x480-pixel resolution. Icons, widgets, and texts look crisp, and default wallpapers display bright and smooth. And, unlike mid-level ZTE devices, the display has a wider viewing angle.

The ZTE Engage measures 4.9 inches tall, 2.5 inches wide, and 0.4 inch thick. At 5.4 ounces, it does tip the scales in terms of weight. But, it's a solidly built and dense device that feels sturdy. Its tapered edges make it easy to hold and grip.

Up top are a 3.5mm headphone jack, a Micro-USB port for charging, and a chrome-colored sleep/power button. There are also two little holes to slip a lanyard or charm through.

Powering the device is a 1.4Ghz processor and a 1,900mAh battery that'll reportedly let you talk for about eight straight hours. You also get Muve Music service, which lets you download an unlimited amount of music onto your handset.
