Straight Talk ZTE Savvy Review




What do you think about this video?

muddymuddymuddmann: continued... ANY SUGGESTIONS WELCOME. THANKS. MUDDy

muddymuddymuddmann: i cant listen to online radio station players. adobe flash player needed to listen, but the phone is not compatible for adobe flash. ???? that makes it pretty much useless for my needs. and the sound is very low. i am hesitating to activate it. i am afraid of not being able to hear on speaker phone. Skype rots without a front facing camera. but if i can get an app that takes the place of adobe flash, and allows me to listen to online radio, I might just give it a go. MUDDy

TxP Juggalo: HOW DO YOU SCREENSHOT ON THIS PHONE?!?!?!

Frances Hokkanen: Does anyone else with this phone think the camera sucks? (My 4-year old blackberry takes better photos.) Granted I have it set on Auto b/c I thought it would be the best option on the fly when I wanna snap a quick pic and not have reset the mode to the right one and miss the moment. 

Ry9uy27: I hate this phone

Tania Mead: AS of 2 days ago, when I go to place my phone on the counter it shuts itself off. Any suggestions. I have had it since March.

Jeffery Brown: I notice every time somebody does a review of one of these phones nobody does the complete review. Can you tell me if you can transfer files to and from the SD card without plugging the phone into the computer? My favorite app to do this when you've got a phone that actually does it is App2SD. The galaxy Centura will not do it, and the LG optimus won't do it either. I used to have a Samsung Galaxy Proclaim that did it but that was with Metro PCS.

Twiin Ciity: EVERYONE WITH ANY ANDROID 4.0+ DEVICES TRY THIS! SPEED UP ANDROID ANIMATIONS LIKE APPLE DID IN IOS7.1 IT ACTUALLY HELPS/WORKS MORE SMOOTHER. GO TO THIS LINK. http://bgr.com/2014/03/19/speed-up-android-how-to/

John Adams: Very useful review for new purchaser. The instruction SHEET is very brief and does not clearly instruct how to use phone in detail. Your video has been exceptionally helpful to me. Thanks.

nick day: me and my wife bought the same phone and hers is great mine is like using a flip phone when it comes to connecting to any browser app store can listen to Pandora it buffers the track then skips n buffers the next track n skips to the next n so on any ideas?

Dana R.: I've been trying to connect my google account to my phone but every time I try it wont work. 

GrannieAnnieF: Someone asked if it can transfer files without plugging phone into computer. I have the Galaxy Proclaim (the plug connection is broken, my 2 yr warranty covers it) and thinking of getting this phone. Anyway, all I did was insert the sd card into my tablet or card reader on computer to get files from it. Would like to know how they did it with their Google acct, though. Someone asked about recording calls. Many don't without an app. I did find an excellent app called "Record My Call", but you need have the speaker on to do it. How about the voice recognition? My Proclaim does a fair job as long as I speak clearly. Thanks.

Chris Morgan: yes you can transfer via sim..its not hard contacts menu import all via sim...mission accomplished

Corelogik: @mythreligion @Yvette, Amazon has silicone jelly case for $2 to $10 specifically for this phone. Also as noted, the ZTE Reef is only a fraction smaller, cases for it should also fit.

Warren Gravois: The first time I transferred pictures to my computer via the USB charge cord. The second time it asks me to format "the hard drive" What does that mean? Will it erase all my data? ZTE Savvy phone.

Spleetastic1: I saw someone who had the same issue I do. I haven't had my phone for a month and my notification sounds do not work and I've tried everything I can think of to fix it :/ I love this phone otherwise

adam ohler: i paid $113.00 for this phone and didn't get a "already pre installed sd card" or one period.

Ruth Scales: I just purchased this phone. Where do I look to see how many service days I have left and where do I go to add time on my phone since I do it manually?

mike mcconkie: muddy i needed adobe flash also and i downloaded it and it has been working fine i also use puffin free browser i downloaded adobe 11

Yeldarb Q: but at least they know where i am

Cindy Dohey: I just got this phone and there's always a blinking red lite at the top left its charged I don't know what it is but its bothering me bad please help.

Erika Unnamed: I just bought one of these on Ebay..... is this phone pretty light? Or at least average? I hope so! I bought a Straight Talk Android phone about a year and a half ago that was RIDICULOUSLY heavy... I can't remember what the model was, but it was literally the heaviest phone I'd felt. Much heavier than all other phones, and quite frankly, ANNOYING!

jody smith: I have the same phone and my notification tones wont work when I get a text message

Yeldarb Q: I hate this phone. Slow as hell. I cant watch videos on it because they wont load. Takes forever. Keeps telling me the system is down. And I lost my receipt so the store wont take it back. You get what you pay for I guess.

kreeper887: This phone seriously sucks. The zte majesty is wayyyyyy better. On paper their does not seem to be that much of a difference but its very noticeable. The sound quality is horrible. The majesty has crap for sound too but its still twice as good as this. This phone is constantly crashing. I try and go on Facebook it freezes. YouTube for extended periods of time..ya right. It barely has enough room for an instagram app let alone a fun app like clash of clans. Its hard to type, sometimes when someone calls me they say I sound like a robot and can't understand what I am saying (the majesty does this too). The sound quality and if reception for phone calls is bad. I urge you to spend a bit extra and go with the majesty. This phone is crap. 

Nickinkick: How the freak do you get notifications to work on this phone!!

Yeldarb Q: it wouldn't be the first phone that got flung out my car window.

Yeldarb Q: i have tracfone on mine. maybe that's why it wont work.

Spleetastic1: I saw someone who had the same issue I do. I haven't had my phone for a month and my notification sounds do not work and I've tried everything I can think of to fix it :/ I love this phone otherwise

Kat Toole: One thing I found that sucks on this phone is the sound quality .. cant hear crap good !

Larry Gray: By your logic, all mom -n- pop style companies should just stop trying, and let companies like walmart take over everything. Variety is good. Having crapty products and getting USEFUL feedback on what to fix on them is how companies get better. Feedback like "stop making phones your product sucks" is as useless as the person formulating that opinion.

david patrick: Great review

DEEJAY_KNIGHT: ZTE brand sucks stay away from that brand I've had 4 ZTE phone they all were pure garbage they should stop making phones along with huawei & Kyocera they should let LG Samsung HTC Sony do the job :)

5kehhn: Thanks for the heads-up--I need to check into that.

Miranda Galloway: Just to clarify...you can't transfer contacts via SIM since there isn't one, but you CAN via your Google account.

Kat Toole: No front facing camera Andre

Stormy Johnson: Are these phone capable of recording incoming and outgoing phone calls. I've downloaded several apps for phone call recording and none seem to work thus far. Any help would be great really needing to be able to record my phone calls. Thanks

Andre Thomas: Thanks Kat. Wound up going with the Majesty :P

Andre Thomas: Front facing camera?

mythreligion: Do they make cases for this phone?

Yvette Garcia: I was wondering the same.. I need a phone case for my zte savvy too and can't find any!

5kehhn: Helpful review.
