ZTE launched its newest budget phone in the American store, AT&T yesterday (June 26). ZTE Maven will be available both in online and offline stores all throughout the States at $60 sans the contract.
For starters, the budget phone sports a 4.5-inch screen with 218ppi density. Inside the hood are Qualcomm’s 64-bit chipset with 1.2GHz 4-core processor. It supports 4G LTE connectivity, HSPA, HSUPA, Edge and GPRS. Other specs include Adreno 306, the latest Google Lollipop and 8GB of native storage.
However, one of the downside of Maven is the mere 1GB RAM. We can foretell sluggishness in performance but hey, this is a $60 smartphone. The rear-facing snapper has a 5MP sensor that can capture decent photos with its LED flash. But selfie fanatics may be dismayed with the front cam which is a 0.3MP VGA.
This handset comes highly recommended for the budget friendly crowd and as a gift to kids. While it isn’t something ideal for those who go after the performance, Maven’s specs are decent enough to accommodate several functions and programs to fiddle through. Perhaps, this is a good back up phone you may have just in case.
