-I'm Jessica Dolcourt with CNET.com looking at the ZTE Agent for MetroPCS.
Now, unfortunately, this is one of those phones that has little to recommend it.
It's tall and slim with a soft touch back cover that makes it grip well and feel comfortable in the hand, and it can slip into almost any pocket.
The screen is also nice and large for the phone's height, and fairly sharp and clear-looking.
However, we did find that the navigation buttons below the screen are a bit constricted, and you can see how tall and narrow the Talk
and End keys are.
And the circular toggle here, it's a bit too small to make navigation very finger friendly.
We do like the shortcut to the music player (we'll give it that) and we also enjoy that the dial pad buttons are almost scaled so that typing in a phone number was no problem.
On the back is a 1.3 megapixel camera and camcorder plus a vanity mirror.
Inside, there's a slew of MetroPCS-branded apps, including a navigator plus all of your usual organizer tools like the calendar.
instant messaging and the MetroWEB browser, plus some other pre-loaded apps like Loopt.
We do have to say that call quality was pretty poor in our tests.
So, to bring it all together, the Agent is a prepaid phone that will cost you $69.
That's a typical price for a not-too-fancy phone you buy without a contract.
But frankly, you can get better phones with MetroPCS for less or for a few dollars more.
We'd recommend you keep shopping around.
