If you want an inexpensive smartphone that’s a solid performer, then give the ZTE Zmax Pro a look, particularly if you’re a fan of phablets. ZTE’s phone offers a brilliant 6-inch display and some rather solid specs for a budget model. We were also impresed by the 10 hours of battery life it turned in during our testing. Don’t expect stellar pictures from the phone’s modest camera, but that price is hard to beat, pushing this phone ahead of higher-profile models in our rankings. (And if you turn to T-Mobile’s MetroPCS subsidiary — which also used T-Mobile’s cellular network — you can buy the Zmax Pro for $99.)
Lots of people like to get prepaid plans because they are a way to get phone service without having to sign a contract. This means that you can end your service with a carrier at any time without consequence. If you have a yearly contract with a carrier and you want to cancel service before the end of the contract, you usually have to pay a fee for each of the remaining months in your contract. No contract cell phone plans typically require you to pay the full price of the phone. However, many companies will now let you pay off the phone over 24 months.
