And The ZTE Zmax Is Back

ZTE ZMAX going back on sale, with instructions for customers NOT to remove battery

On Wednesday April 15, we temporarily suspended sales of the ZTE ZMAX to investigate a potential battery problem. That investigation (led by ZTE) found that the problem resulted from a very small number of customers attempting to remove the non-removable ZMAX back and battery. As a result, we are resuming sales of the ZMAX immediately.

Does it matter any longer? I don’t know.

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is now out (some timing, that T-Mobile announces this on the day all of the Idol 3 reviews appear!). It’s more than twice the price — that’s if Metro PCS will re-sell it for US$99.00 again. At post time, the Zmax hasn’t been relisted at their website.

    For around $200-250 you can probably get the LG G2, a great device with 38,000 in Antutu v5,7, instead of the Idol 3.

    • I don’t like LG’s devices and design.

        Fair enough. Personally, I think that LG did an excellent job there, perhaps because of the collaboration with Google on the Nexus 5. IMHO, the G3 is not as good.
        The Xperia Z1 and HTC One M8 have comparable specs to the G2 but are slightly more expensive (by ~$50). Their prices will probably continue to decrease gradually. The Galaxy S4 has a weaker CPU, while the Galaxy S5 is slightly more powerful but also more expensive.
