    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 3.9 out of 5★ by 16reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Well suited for my budget! Purchased this phone with the hopes that the audio output would be better than my previous phone (Evo V). So far, am not disappointed. Granted that it is a downsize with regards to the touchscreen size, having to work with a 4.0 screen instead of a 4.3 is not that much of a loss, it's still manageable.Had a little difficulty activating this phone, which could be attributed to the fact that I wasn't close to a WiFi system to get a good signal for the activation process. But after a few minutes on a weak WiFi system, the phone was able to complete the activation. Once that was done, I was able to utilize the 3G speed to update the apps and OS.With the Android 4.1 OS, the phone has no problem opening and closing apps, everything runs fluidly smooth without difficulty. However, it did take me awhile to figure out how to place widgets onto the home screens, since the process is somewhat different on the Awe as compared to my Evo. It's a bit tedious, but once you get accustomed to the process, it's not that big of a headache.The audio output is truly much better than my old phone, even while using it on speakerphone mode, I can hear the call with no difficulty. I love it! However, it may or may not matter to some users, but while on a test call with my wife, she stated that she was able to hear the wind blowing into the microphone from my phone. Although she said she could hear my voice okay, the background noise heard was a little annoying to her. Of course, it was a little windy from where I was speaking from. This just reaffirms my belief that the mic is somewhat sensitive.Taking pictures is not that difficult, however, the image quality is marginal (on my phone anyway), because I found that no matter what image resolution I used, the pictures weren't that clear, especially when I zoomed into the image, the distortion was much more noticeable. Not sure if its a lens problem with my phone or the picture app itself, compared to my old phone... the image quality was much better.Overall, for the price I paid for this phone, it lives up to my expectations. It's a good product if one is only interested in making and receiving calls, sending texts or MMS messages and light surfing on the internet. Although the Awe doesn't have the extravagant features and power as other phones on the market today, it serves me well with its capabilities. I certainly got what I paid for it, and have no regrets! 12/01/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by my first smartphone well like the title says, it's my first smartphone. Being strapped for cash, this was the most reasonable choice for me. I steered away from some of the phones that were price a little bit higher based on others reviews. So far, I am happy with my decision.I got it mostly for the purpose of being able to send and receive texts faster and i can say it definitely achieves that purpose. I heard some people say the camera wasn't so great and I was anxious about it at first but after using it I was relieved. The camera app on it has editing capabilities and come in handy, if you don't like it there are other camera apps you can download. I got CameraMX and it has a bit more options like scaling, kaleidoscope, the standard effects, etc. I wish there was more selection for the cases for this phone and while that doesn't really say anything about the functionality of the phone, it may be something to consider. The case I got seems pretty sturdy, I got it off of amazon because i had a gift card so i dont kno if walmart has it but if it doesn't, check out amazon. I haven't dropped it lol and i hope to keep it that way.When i didn't have this phone, i kept notes on my phone by saving them in texts as drafts. It's so much easier and more convenient to be able to take notes on this, i can write personal thoughts or keep track of things to look up later, etc. The 3G works fine, i've been downloading simple apps like sudoku, colornote, lirr train schedule, pandora, youtube, stuff like that and they function nicely. I can't comment on how other apps or games would appear but I'm ASSUMING it should be fine. I've been more than satisfied with my purchase of this ZTE Awe. 01/26/2014
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Perfect smartphone for a teenager For those who are unable to afford the IPhone, this is a great alternative! 01/16/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 Great phone, little price!! I purchased this phone for my 15 year old daughter. She wanted a galaxy s4 but I refused to pay that price. I purchased this phone instead and she absolutely loves it!! She have not complained once about not getting the galaxy. The phone works great!! 01/13/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Phone Although I only had this phone for 2 weeks, I like it so far. The jellybean operation is way better the jinger bread. The price is great for my up grade. Highly recommanded. 12/31/2013

    Rated 4 out of 5★ by I love this phone! I got this phone during Black Friday, and i absolutely love it! The battery last long, i can run any apps, and as a teen- of course i text A LOT! I wake up around 5:30 am everyday, and it lasts me until 11:30 pm-12:30 am. With listening to music and such- this phone is NOT bad for the price. I'd recommend this phone to anyone!(: 03/29/2014
