Android Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System
This phone runs the Android 4.0.4 operating system (dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich), which adds powerful new ways of communicating and sharing while improving on the best Android features: easy multitasking, rich notifications, customizable home screens, resizable widgets, and more.
The updated Ice Cream Sandwich interface features an onscreen navigation bar that replaces the hardware buttons for Back, Home, and Menu found with older Android-powered phones. And with Google+ integration, you can video chat with groups of up to 9 friends as well as easily upload and share photos and videos. Other features include:Face Unlock
You can now unlock your phone with just your face using the Face Unlock option. It takes advantage of the front-facing camera and state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to register a face during setup and then to recognize it again when unlocking the device. Just hold your phone in front of your face to unlock (or use a backup PIN).
And the lock screen now lets you do more without unlocking. From the slide lock screen, you can jump directly to the camera for a picture or pull down the notifications window to check for messages. When listening to music, you can even manage music tracks and see album art.Home Screen Folders
Quickly access related apps right from the home screen by organizing apps and shortcuts into folders--just drag one app onto another to create a folder.Multitasking
Multitasking is even easier and more visual in Android 4.0.4. The Recent Apps button lets you jump instantly from one task to another using the list in the System Bar. The list pops up to show thumbnail images of apps used recently--tapping a thumbnail switches to the app.Voice Input
The new voice engine in Android 4.0.4 lets you dictate the text you want, for as long as you want, using the language you want. You can speak continuously for a prolonged time, even pausing for intervals if needed, and dictate punctuation to create correct sentences. As the voice input engine enters text, it underlines possible dictation errors in gray. After dictating, you can tap the underlined words to quickly replace them from a list of suggestions.

While this may not be true for Amaozn, my local Kroger offered this device through their iWireless network for only $100! That's why I went ahead with the purchase. Once I got it, I felt kind of impressed still. It was better than my last phone, but sometimes there's a bit of awkward slowdown, lag, temporary freezing, and just in general on random times it wasn't very nice. However, despite its powerful processor, it still runs really well! Youtube sometimes doesn't work, which is kind of frustrating ((you can get around this by closing out youtube completely, or force-stopping the program)) and netflix sometimes has troubles buffering videos. Which I think is weird considering the specs. All things considered, I think if you're getting this as a prepaid phone and it isn't being sold for $100, I suggest getting it through a contract. It's not worth the price tag any other way.
Edit: I've had this phone for about a year now and I have got to change my score from a 4 to a 3. When I had first gotten this phone it had worked pretty good! But now it's starting to show its signs of weakness. It's becoming VERY slow, VERY laggy, and sometimes the keyboard doesn't even properly respond! I just want a phone that works! Oh well, off to buy a new phone again and get a new service plan because the US can't bother to switch over to GSM networking.
The phone had problems with the display graphics in the lower right quadrant right out of the box. I understood when I bought the phone, that if I had any problems with it that I could not return it to Kroger, but for the price I was willing to do the extra effort. The people I talked to at iwireless and ZTE were very helpful. I paid to ship it to the repair shop that ZTE provided, but the phone could not be repaired so they sent me a new one at no extra charge. The process took about four weeks.
This replacement phone worked perfectly for a month. I was very happy with the service and it fit my needs. Now I am waiting on another RMA number from ZTE. There are "white lines/streaks" on the display from top to bottom. I noticed this after a notification that TouchPal had updated -- probably just a coincidence. I use Swype, not TouchPal. The white streaks move from side to side when I scroll through the display. The white streaks are worse when there are letters or numbers on the display. When I do a Search on any browser, the entire screen has the effect of looking through a thick gauzy fabric, virtually unreadable.
When I watch a movie, the white lines/streaks show up, also, and are worse when there are letters or symbols on the screen or a lot of white in the background of scenes. Otherwise, it's not too bad.
The only function not disrupted with the streaks are when I look under Settings such as "Display" or "Sound".Read more ›
Otherwise, the multi-touch HD screen is vivid (not as saturated as an AMOLED, but still very good) and offers terrific viewing angles for gamers out there. I like how the navigation buttons are all part of the display (minimalistic design), and disappears when streaming video to expand the screen's real estate. The soft-touch back also adds to a premium feel. Performance-wise, I found the smartphone to be occasionally sluggish when too many Gpu-heavy apps were running simultaneously. All popular apps from the Play Store downloaded without a problem, and ram ran the apps smoothly. The phone does heat up a bit when running for extended periods of time.
The included web experience is terrific, with snappy page-rendering speeds with on network or WIFI connections. Call quality with the microphone is crisp, and the speakerphone is loud- though reception is just average.Read more ›
