Electronics, especially smartphones, depreciate very fast. In many cases, special deals and promotions start to pop up just a few weeks after launch. After a few months, even expensive device can become quite affordable. After a year, many phones are simply dirt cheap. The ZTE ZMAX 2 Android phone certainly is – the handset is now on sale for just fifty bucks without contract. To be more precise, the ZTE ZMAX 2 currently costs $49.99 and is available on eBay and at Best Buy. It’s a pretty generous price cut considering that the phone was launched with a $149.99 price tag.
The ZTE ZMAX 2 price just dropped significantly which means that you can grab a 5.5-inch phablet for under $50.
For less than $50 you would expect the most low-end specs possible and in most cases you would be right, but not this time. The ZTE ZMAX 2 was launched with one of the best specs-to-price ratio as far as mid-rangers are concerned and still true today. To begin with, the device is a phablet so you will get a huge 5.5-inch display with a decent 720 x 1280 pixel resolution. Speaking of resolution, the main camera shoots photos at 8 megapixels while the selfie sensor is of 2-megapixel kind – maybe not the best you can have but perfectly enough for selfies and video chatting.
Powering the phone is a Snapdragon 410 chip clocked at 1.2GHz and there is 2GB of RAM to guarantee seamless performance and multitasking without hiccups. The handset also comes with 16GB of internal memory with microSD slot to add more space for your content should you find onboard storage not enough. Last but not least, the device packs a pretty capacious 3,000 mAh battery and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.
The ZTE ZMAX 2 with its quite modest cameras, not the fastest processor and two generations old operating system probably won’t take your breath away with its specs, but for under $50 you couldn’t really ask for more. Moreover, the phone is available through AT&T’s GoPhone prepaid network which means that you don’t have to sign any contracts, since it’s a prepaid offer. At the moment it’s unclear whether it’s a permanent price cut or a temporary promotion so you might want not to wait too long.
