Pros Music Sound is good, Size, screen and display nice.
Cons Data Connection is not reliable as should be. One could go as long is 7 hours without data connection on a regular. Not good.
Pros Battery life is great and I haven't ran out of battery since I got it. Display and picture quality is amazing. User-friendly. Runs smoothly. Sound quality was definitely unexpected.
Cons Some minor issues with responsiveness of fingertips at times, but it might be user error.
Summary Would I recommend this phone? Definitely! This is my first Android phone and I could not be any more happy with it! It feels comfortable in my hands with its size. I love a bigger phone and this one is perfect for me. Definitely a great purchase! I got it on sale for $90!
Pros Screen Size and display is amazing. The 4.5 in face really is stunning. Battery life is superb and lasts for a long time. Picture quality is clear on both the rear and front cameras. Call quality is surprisingly good for a lower end phone.
Cons The low pixel density might annoy some people. Videos aren't has vivid as higher end smartphones, but they're still clear.
Summary Don't let the ZTE brand fool you. ZTE really steps it up with the Source. Running on 4.1 Jelly Bean, this phone gives you all those amazing features that Galaxys and iPhones flaunt for a much more reasonable price. The phone is sleek, sharp, attractive, and feels great in the hands. It outshines the other lower priced budget phones in Cricket's line up (HTC One SV, Galaxy Discover/Admire 2, Engage MT) with it's look, feel, display, and features. If you can't afford a higher tier smartphone, I would very much recommend getting the ZTE Source, you won't be disappointed at all.
