AT&T's ZTE ZMax 2
Available now for $100 without a contract, the ZTE ZMax 2 is a big-screen device for those on a budget.
A subtle design addition
Though its design is pretty standard, the handset's faux-leather backing adds a stylish touch. Underneath the plate is a 3,000mAh battery and a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor.
Ample screen space
The phone is equipped with a 5.5-inch, 720p display and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.
For your casual photo needs
The ZMax 2 has an 8-megapixel rear-camera that can record 1,080p video and a front-facing 2-megapixel shooter.
A bit of heft in your pocket
The device measures 6.06 by 2.99 by 0.37 inches. And at 6 ounces, it can still feel heavy in the hand even for a big-screen handset.
A closer look on the right
On the top and bottom edges are a 3.5mm headphone jack and a Micro-USB port, respectively. The right edge houses a volume rocker and a sleep/power button.
Good value, but photo quality can be a miss
Despite some inconsistencies with its camera's photo quality, the ZMax 2 is still a decent value for its price. If you're on a tight budget and want a generously sized display, it's worth considering.
