AT&T F160 - black

The Good The AT&T F160 is light and comfortable, with good call quality and several user-friendly features. It's a 3G-capable world phone, which should appeal to travelers.

The Bad Photos are grainy and drab on the AT&T F160's 3-megapixel camera, and the speakerphone could be improved. You have to remove the battery to access the microSD card slot.

The Bottom Line A 3G world phone, the free AT&T F160 has a solid design and features. Strong call quality makes it ideal for talk-heavy users, but its camera will deter photographers.

AT&T F160 - black

A phone need not have every premium extravagance for it to be a good device, and the ZTE-made AT&T F160 illustrates that point beautifully. Sure, as a simple midrange handset, it certainly isn't recommended for power texters or multimedia geeks and with its matte black appearance, it's far from showy.

What it does, however, is competently deliver on features and design with a light, slim, and comfortable body; a responsive keypad; good call quality; and useful usability touches. Best of all, the AT&T F160 is free with a two-year contract, making it an ever more valuable no-fuss phone for callers. The AT&T F160 costs $149.99 without a contract. For ZTE, which has produced several clunkers (like the maligned ZTE Agent), the F160 is a welcome step in the right direction.
