I upgraded from a proclaim to this zte majesty we did lots of research and read lots of reviews by other customers. I got because of the bigger screen and the better camera due to this had a flash an I love my photography. I love the size and screen, its amazing, HOWEVER the camera is good but when I send my photos to my computer to further edit its HORRIBLE!!!!! The file gets shrunk and its all pixelated. This never happened with my proclaim, I even changed the settings to the 5mega pixel settings and still the same. This is just a sad day for me. I love my phone but this is a HUGE PROBLEM for me. I don't know why its doing this. If anyone has any ideas please help. Or this needs to be addressed by the company, I fear its a software issue. BELOW is a photo I took, just off my porch. Look at how pixelated the branches are. NEVER happened with proclaim

I was very skeptical about getting this phone and I did a lot of research before purchasing it, I did not find a lot of negative reviews and low and behold, it went on sale for $59.99 @ straighttalk.com for a very short period. I jumped on board and I am truly happy with the phone. I bought the case and screen protector online but still waiting for the screen protector.

I thought that the ZTE Majesty would be my final phone with Straight Talk (I have had 4 good phones). It had a big enough screen for my thumbs, a fast processor running Android 4.1 and even a front facing camera! Boy was I wrong. I have had two Majesty models. The first one I picked up from Site-to-Store. After about a day or two I pulled the phone out of my pocket only to find what appeared to be a bubble of air under the screen. I was able to squeeze the phone and let the air out of the phone and this fixed the issue. However every time I put the phone in my pocket for an extended period of time this would happen. I returned the phone because this was bothering me and hoped that things would be different. Not only 2 hours after I got the second phone this started happening again. This time I was just going to deal with it since it didn't affect me using the phone at all. Then the phone started crashing. I would try to call someone or send a text and the phone would just crash, even if I didn't have any other apps open. I did a factory reset and this seemed to fix the issue. THEN, the phone started messing up calls. My girlfriend called me 3 times one morning and my phone only rang once. When I would be able to talk to her she was garbled and she said that I would cut in and out. I'm done with this phone. Returning it to the store today! DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!

Best phone from straight talk

If you're looking for a high end smart phone like the s3 or iPhone and don't want to shell out the money, this is the best phone for the straight talk user. It uses Verizon towers, large screan, faster processor and has a flash for the rear camera and has a front facing camera as well (no flash). My only qualm as of now with this phone is that it doesn't take a micro sd card. That would be my only issue. So if you're looking to save some money and have a good top of the line phone.... I would recommend this. Also, very important, I highly recommend the replacement plan. We bought one for a previous phone that we had for a year and a half and then began to have issues with it. I called it in and literally no questions asked they gave me a gift card for the value I PAID for the phone. So I got this phone with my rebate money and merely paid for the replacement plan. Highly recommend that for any phones, it even covers owner accidents. So yes good phone just always get the replacement plan!

An OK Starter Smartphone, but major limitations

I made the move to a Smartphone because I was leaving my old AT&T plan where texting was not free and I had an opportunity to pick up this phone at a bargain. If all you do is text and surf and use social media, it's a good starter phone, but with 768MB of RAM, you won't be loading many apps on the phone. If you max out the MicroSD slot at 32GB, you'll have some room for multimedia storage, and you can move some of your apps to the MicroSD card as well, but the preloaded Google apps won't move to SD, and even the apps you move may still store data in the internal memory and it will fill up quickly. Battery life is abysmal. If you turn off GPS and WiFi when you aren't using them, it gets better, but if you use your apps, you'll be plugging it up within a few hours. Even if you use it just for talk and text, it will have to be charged every night. I initially had a complaint that no OS upgrade is available, but the reality is that there's not room for an expanded OS, so it's fine.

It is on browser and certain functions. It's that vibrate feedback and it's very inconsistent. It's not in language/keyboard; not in accessibility; not in sound. It is constantly there for browser and search. driving me nuts.

  • A. I like using the Swype keyboard. When I got the Swype app from the play store, the hepatic vibrate automatically turned off. I too could not find a way to turn it off or mute it. It has never come back on since downloading Swype.

  • A. nope. That's not it either. Its haptic vibration - constant on internet, messaging and using the 3 keys on black bottom area of phone. My friends & co-worker's phones they have and androids have this feature -usually in language and accesibility. This feature/line is missing. Just skips right over where is should be when I compare to other android phones and tablets.

  • A. Go to messaging..click the menu key(three lines) at the bottom, click settings, scroll down to "vibrate", which is right after "Select Ringtone." Choose never.

  • A. no, not related. Nothing is on (checked). It's not in accessibility (handicap). Not in sounds I even toyed with vibrate on and off with ringing - nothing. Even system sounds are all unchecked. All I have is a simple ring for incoming calls.

  • A. Do you have "vibrate on keypress" checked in language and input? This is what it is sounding like. Try unchecking that option and see if that helps you out.

  • A. You will need to ask the carrier you are switching to in regards to transferring your phone. I do believe most of them you can. I have heard that it can take a few weeks. I just got a new number. you need gmail for the apps but you can use your own email address you just add it.

  • A. Yes you can transfer your number. You do not need gmail though it is wise to make an account and to use with Google Play. Great for contacts when switching to another phone(backup purposes). Your Cricket number needs to be active in order to port to this phone. What you will need from Cricket is your account number, pin number, and personal information. You will then purchase this phone and a $45 Unlimited Card. You can then call Customer Service or port your number online via straighttalk.com >> Transfer Number. Make sure dot is in "transfer number from another carrier." Proceed to input the required information. After all activation steps are complete, you should have a working phone within an hour or two.
