ZTE Z796C Majesty - Straight Talk




What do you think about this video?

Miranda Galloway: Okay...so...Restarting seems to be the main issue everyone has...yes? Mine does it much less often now and only if I'm pushing the RAM too hard. Usual fix IF it happens with any PARTICULAR APP (not from merely heavy use) is to go under manage apps. find the app, clear data, force stop, uninstall (or uninstall updates), restart the phone and reinstall (update). It seems like any issues on mine happened within short time from an install or applying an update to certain apps. This generally fixes it. I don't know what's causing it however. Maybe the phone? Maybe Jellybean? Maybe Google play? I don't know. But I will say, that I'm not THAT much of a techie but I haven't found anything yet that I can't fix on my own phone. So, I'm still happy with it. I am sorry for any folks who have had issues that I can't help them fix though. There's only so much I can do without have their particular phone in my hands to look into things more easily. If you can't Google a fix for your issue, you can always call the dreaded Straight Talk customer service. If they can't fix it and they start losing patience, they probably hope you will hang up because I don't think they're supposed to. Just keep politely pushing through. You'll either get transferred a couple more times, or they'll fix it. If they still won't, remind them that you're within your 1 year warranty and that if they can't fix it that you want a replacement (that usually makes them scurry for a magical fix and you get transferred to someone that actually knows what the hell they're doing). Again, apologies that I'm not able to do all tech support on this phone. Keep in mind...the reason this video even EXISTS is that there wasn't a single video about this phone when I bought the phone. For that reason alone, I did my own research and bought the phone, and then made the video.

muddymuddymuddmann: HELLO MIRANDA, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU. I have the ZTE Savvy, when i try to listen to on line radio stations, i get the alert-you need adobe flash player to listen to this content, and when i click on the message it says," you device does not support this app. I'm hoping you figured out how to get past this. Thanks in advance. MUDDy

Hunterbow243: Can you but apps on the sd card???

Miranda Galloway: Brianna, the screenshot question has been answered probably 3 or 4 times in comments at this point: Volume down + lock/power button. And yes, you can save pics. From text, tap the paperclip, then save. From Facebook, view the pic, then tap your menu key and select save.

simplewoman236311: I have to say THANK YOU a million times !! I am new to the android phone & was having so much trouble figuring it out,now I feel confident that I got this nailed thanks to your very informative review & many comments

Blanton Thatcher: Hello Miranda in your instruction video about the ZTE majesty from straight talk there is no information about the flashlight located on the back of the phone if you have anything could you please email it to me at kc2hvy@gmail. com

home church remnant: The auto rotate stopped working. I just bought it. I tried restarting and taking the battery out and turning it back on several times. I searched in the settings to see if there was an option to turn on or off the auto rotate but I couldn't find one. I've looked online for an answer cannot find a solution. Any ideas?

Gretchen Corban: I get a flashing green light & a green smiling box but NOT an audio notification of a text message. How do I fix this?

Miranda Galloway: Sounds like you've just found ways to overload it...shouldn't be an issue. Lol. Download Clean Master. It will show when you're running too much RAM. It helps remind you which apps can be moved to SD. It's one of the best maintenance apps I've ever found. And if you start running a little slow, run it...restart the phone...when it's fully loaded, run the boost on it again. Also, do you notice it in using certain apps? Or a certain keyboard?

simplewoman236311: Thank you !

Kelly Adam: OK so how do I find deleted history? 

Frances Eckhardt: I locked mysel out of my phone and I can't open it

bob git: Help please! I have this phone and most of the time when I send texts the phone says they sent but the person I send them to doesn't get them. I've tried to fix it but nothing works, and other people have had this problem as well. It's not the other persons phone, that's been ruled out. Someone please help me fix this.

Dinoxt12: Thanks

Ken Teets: Thanks for the review, didnt mention battery life for ur use, thats different with each person, but very informative. The bottom 3 buttons are like stock android, samsung changes them. I have a nexus phone and a samsung tablet, so I always have to think or hit the wrong one. That lock screen is ZTE not jelly bean( FYI) looks prety cool. Thanks again.

1ilovetacos: would you still say the zte majesty is as good a phone as you did when u made this review

Jenn Siler: Sarah to do a screen shot just hold the - volume and the power button for a second and it will save it to a folder called screen shots where you can share them or edit them :)

Tim Madden: Im using this phone right now. and This phone can't handle YouTube half the time. I'll be watching a video and *click* it restarts the phone. It pissies me off cause it does like 3 or 4 times a day. Today it restarted twice in under 15 mins. Wtf. This mofo needs a software update or something.

Abbershay: I just got this phone and i loaded my music to it but when i go to play the music is says cannot play given music , do you have idea what could be wrong?

Nick Mitchell: Thank you so much for this now i know which phone i want and im excited itll be my first working smart phone!! Thanks mrs miranda

Jim Bryan: I just ordered this phone for my life and Straight Talk is giving $50 off (today only on phones $150 or more) and free overnight shipping. FYI, I have an LG phone with Jelly Bean that I had random reboot problems with it. In my case it was a buggy app. I don't remember which APP it was, but I uninstalled it and the reboots went away.

Twiin Ciity: does this phone have tons of non Google 'bloatware'. could you name them all?thanks

Luci Estes: I also like it...I bought my from Amazon. Amazon also has a variety of cool protection cases available.

andrea emig: Help please..I have this phone and someone messed with it and now all the sound coming out of it (music,ringtones,notifications) are all high pitched iv tried going into settings and sound but I can't fix it. I know its not my speakers bc it is even high pitched through my earbuds and car radio. Please help music is my life and it sounds weird high pitched! Even youtube is high pitched like chipmunks.

Kei Barnes: Hi Miranda Does this phone give you the option to lock it with a pattern or numeric lock code? Also just ordered it and wanted to know if you've had any problen with it since your review?

Jackie Howard: I am thinking of buying this for hubby's first smartphone. Enjoyed the review.

Tina Mike: Musicdjz1 mine did the same thing had to block all the Google Apps from updating, Google is the problem, from my research Google and jelly bean don't work well together , for me it wasn't an issue to do that because I don't use most of those services. Such as hangouts and Google music I stopped 6 altogether 

LeRoy Warren: Great review!

Shawn Jacobson: you just helped me make up my mind on a new phone. thank you. that was very helpful.

Sarah Kidd: Great review! You sold me. :) 

Brandon Bound: Plz get bk 2 me as soon as possible thank u 

gabriel morgan: Thank you so much because of you i have decided to order this phone by the way awesome first review. :)

Tiffany Taylor: this phone does have swipe. I have this phone and I use swipe on it

Echo Bailey: hi Miranda I had to buy this phone 3 times in 1 week... My phone is always charged when it needs to be. The phone dies so fast from 35% to 0% it was weird.. this morning my phone was 100% fully charged today than in 20mins it went straight to 0%.. i have never over charged this battery or any battery for a phone.. I am hearing that the app called mi-power app that comes with the phone is having glitches where the phone dies quickly.. I have been trying to unistall the app but i can only force stop it. and When I try and force stop it, the app refuses to stop and it keeps running. I also hear i need to download go launcher to make the app compatiable. I am not sure what is going on.. I am not sure if anyone else is having this same problem.. Only thing I have running is everything that has came with the phone, plus facebook. Everything else is turnedoff. Even my wifi is turned off. What Can i do? please help me i cant keep returning the phone. Straight talk refuses to help

MusicDJz1: Anyone have a problem with this phone restarting by itself? Noticed it happens when I'm watching YouTube for a few hours :/. My 30 day return window from straight talk's customer service is gonna expire Thursday and I'm trying to decide to get a refund or exchange it! 

Tyler Bagget: On straight talks website, it states that the majesty only has a 1.2GHz processer. It doesn't say a duel core processer.

becca pate: Are you able to see emojis?

Eric Hensley: I cannot find the alphanumeric keyboard. I want to use qwerty when it's horizontal but I'd like to use the 3x4 T9 keyboard when I hold it vertically. I've been thru all the setting several times and still can't find it.

Bethany Cuevas: TouchPal X is a free version it's a very reliable Swype keyboard and it's full of customizing features

Kayla Ray: Can you put a signature for your out going text messages cause I have the Samsung galaxy centura ad it don't have that option but I downloaded handcent so I'd have a signature, does this home have that option?

kayla temples: okay good so its a pretty good phone??

Ashley Hoffman: I have tried the down key & the power key its not working.

Margaret Adams: Thank you. I too have a limited phone budget and now use ST. This was a good review - simple and informative. I have to choose between three in my price range. Godd to know.

darron comstock: great review

Sarah Spindler: I have this phone and haven't been able to figure out how to do a screenshot... and ideas on how to? 

David Cunningham: very good review, I am thinking about getting one of these ;)

Max Hoxha: I like chat with u o7720609981 

Jaxon Burgess: Re earbud jack not working: After trying several sets of headphones/earbuds with no joy, as a last try before returning the phone I shut it down completely, plugged in my earbuds and rebooted. For some unknown reason, that worked and now they work all the time as soon as they are plugged into the jack.

Josh Hankins: sometimes my touchscreen likes to not register me clicking anything.. like my phone will sit there are act stupid or some crap.. i just purchased this phone yesterday and now i cant even do anything on it. only the touch screen commands dont work, the power button, and the volume buttons work.. help?

brwnsugga3292: I dont know if this will help...but do u have a memory card in your phone...if so..make sure itz a new one purchased for tht phone only...using a used one from another phone can corrupt your card and cause your phone to power on and off randomly...i changed phones several times before i did some research and figured tht out :-)
