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.

Miranda Galloway: This video and phone are now over a year old. Forgive me if I don't reply to every comment or answer every question. If anyone sees an unanswered question and knows an answer...feel free to answer it for them. I'll leave comments active as long as people are civil.

Sapphire Guerra: My touchscreen out of no were stoped working any thoughts why ? or how i can fix it instead of paying money to get it fixed on a budget right now need help 

Bonnie Rehder: Please Help! What do I need to do to get my computer to recognize this phone so I can get my pictures to my computer?

Trevon Cross: How to update the soware

Joseph Slabaugh: I have 2, one for my wife and one for myself. For some reason, I can't get my wife's to work while at home, but we can make all the calls we want in town.

SEBASTIAN JACKSON: The Processor In The ZTE Majesty Is Dual Core...

Dakota Brown: I was wondering if anyone knows how to make the drop down setting buttons smaller. When you pull the screen down to see notifications, the settings along the top of the screen. My little setting buttons keep getting bigger and I have no idea how to make them smaller. Can anyone help?

Matthew Simmons: This phone is a piece of crap. I have know 4 people who have had this phone making me number 5. The first person I knew to get it has trouble with it being extremely slow and not being able to get any coverage anywhere. She took it back. I decided to get the phone even though she had troubles out of it. I thought it was just a bad batch of phones. She tried to warn me. My nephew has this phone, the touch screen stopped working after about 2 months, he was able to convince the place he got it from to exchange it for another one. He is now having trouble with the touch screen again not working at times, it restarting all the time during apps, and it being extremely slow. My father in law has the zte majesty and it does all of the same things above. I have the zte majesty and my phone goes crazy at times calling the wrong people. It restarts with me watching YouTube, it constantly buffers even though it has a perfect Wi-Fi signal, it restarts during apps, it's extremely slow, the touch screen seems very bugged at times, it shuts off even though my phone still has about 10% battery life left, it did however only completely lock up one time, but the constant restarting makes up for that. I suggest you don't buy this phone. It is the worst phone ever. Ugh..

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.

Robbie Golphin: Someone PLEASE help... The 3 bottom buttons on my phone won't work anymore. Please tell me what to do... please

Donavan Trahan: The Walking dead!!!! HELL YEAH!!!

EngageBrainCells: HELP ! cookies were disabled on Majesty ZTE...how do I enable them again?

Donald Kennamer: How can I delete my gmail account on this ZTE Z796C Majesty phone

Katelyn Mincey: Can you block #'s on this phone?

JD McMillan: Hey is there a preinstalled flashlight on the phone? Or do I have to download one, cause all the ones I've tried are covered with ads.

Miranda Galloway: Yes, Morgan. I still love the phone. The only issues have been that some apps cause it to restart. Hulu and Words with Friends have done this. I need to trying running the same fix on WwF that I did on Hulu. And also on occasion, when I turn phone from silent to volume on, my incoming texts stay silent. Restarting the phone fixes this. Essentially though...I realize that all phones have their quirks. The ones I've found have been very minor and usually easy fixes with apps and such. I'm still quite happy with it. :)

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.

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

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

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?

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

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

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?

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

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

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

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

simplewoman236311: Thank you !

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.

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 :-)

Patti Meek: Sorry I have the zte majesty cell through straight talk !!!!

Miranda Galloway: Well, I did research and tried to make a video that answered the questions I would've had. I didn't know how it would be received. I'm glad so many of you have liked it. :) I feel the love!

nascarfan357: Miranda my ZTE Majesty phone takes way to long to download a picture and way to long to send one can you give some imformation on how to fix this. Thanks Danny

Dinoxt12: Thanks

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

Vet: When I graduated High School, all I wanted to do was kick back and relax without having to do any homework. But I realized I have no money to do anything fun. So I went to a San Francisco Vet School to get trained to make money. But seeing your videos, I am gonna be an internet marketer on the side. Let me know if you have any tips. Thanks.
