The Warp 7 is ZTE's latest offering for Boost Mobile.


ZTE's latest affordable handset is the Warp 7, a $100 phone available on September 5. The device is compatible with carriers using both CDMA and GSM technology, but it will be sold through Boost Mobile, which uses Sprint's CDMA network.

The Warp 7 features a 5.5-inch display (720-pixel resolution), a 1.2 quad-core processor and a removable 3,080mAh battery. For your photo needs, it has a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel shooter in the front. It runs Android Marshmallow 6.0 and has 16GB of memory that you can expand up to 64GB with a microSD card.

The Warp 7 follows ZTE's other $100 prepaid handset, the ZMax Pro, which was announced in July for MetroPCS. Despite a similar price tag, the ZMax Pro has slightly better specs, including a 6-inch screen with a sharper 1,080-pixel resolution, an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor and a 3,400mAh battery.

Still, Boost Mobile's handset is a pretty decent deal and we'll know more once we get our hands on it. But on paper, the ZMax Pro looks to be the better choice (for now) if you're looking for an inexpensive prepaid phone.
