That was five months ago in case you’re not very good with math. The wait is finally over, though, and today we learnt that the phone will be heading over to Cricket bundled with free VR goggles and low price.

With such users in mind, the 6-inch ZTE Grand X Max+ was made. The phablet is now available for purchase from Cricket Wireless priced at $199.99 with no annual contract.
