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.

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?

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: 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.

Peyton Moore: where does the sim card go

Miranda Galloway: Sarah, volume down & lock button simultaneously.

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?

mfireall: Miranda Galloway my son put a passcode on my phone and now he can't remember what it is and its not even activated yet so how would I be able to unlock it

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!

Miranda Galloway: Joanna, The outlines of the nav buttons are reflective, so they don't usually light up unless the phone decides the lighting is low enough to need them backlit. I don't think it's a glitch, just a little odd. And I don't think there's any way to toggle it on. It doesn't bother me at all now that I'm used to it. 

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

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

Miranda Galloway: For those who have asked, they have new cases on ebay. Search "zte majesty impact hybrid hard soft case" and the top option is what I ordered. I haven't got it yet, but it's the same style as the one I showed in my video. And the one my fiance ordered can be found by searching "For ZTE Source N9511 Majesty Hybrid Hard + Soft Silicone w/ Stand Cover Case." His is equally as good.

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?

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?

alex ingram: This reminds me of the galaxy s 4

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

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: 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. :)

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

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.

Tricia Cox: yes there is on ebay 

Miranda Galloway: For some reason, YouTube isn't showing "reply" links next to some of your names. Okay, right now I'm addressing the restarting issue. Yes, mine has just started doing this too. It hasn't done it with youtube yet, but it does it with Hulu. I reported the issue to them and they gave me some troubleshooting steps. I haven't gone through them yet, but I'm about to. I honestly don't think it's anything wrong with the phone. It doesn't do it all the time, just Hulu and maybe 1 other app though I forget which. I will let you know when I get it figured out.

Jerry Falk: How do i get the voice to stop reading me everything on my phone?

Dakota Busick: My majesty randomlly shut off and eont turn back on. And a red light blinks once when i press the power button and once countnuallsly when plugged it. I need help. ASAP 

Tricia Cox: that is what i did for swiping touch pal X 

Becca Boo: Have you had any issues with WiFi? I cannot connect at all. It says it is searching, but nothing. It worked before, but for the past few weeks, it stopped. 

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

Catavis Burnside: My GB aren't up yet but my phone is running slow.. How can I fix this

jesusdaughter37: When I plug my headphones in the music only plays out of the right ear bud. How do I fix that? I know it's the phone because I plugged my headphones into my Kindle and they worked perfectly

andrea wright: When I get a text I have no sound. Its just the green light letting me no I have a message or gmail. I have went in to the text settings I have went in to the settings. Still on sound. I have turned my phone on and off even taken the battery out. Still no luck. Can u help me figure it out?

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?

Miranda Galloway: My fiance sold his Huawei W1 and bought the Majesty and he's so happy now! :D 

Becca Boo: Have you had any issues with WiFi? I cannot connect at all. It says it is searching, but nothing. It worked before, but for the past few weeks, it stopped. 

Crystal Hudson: I can't not can play videos

Kayle Griffin: I just want to know how to copy & paste

heartsparklez15: i love the walking dead!!!!

Jaimie Petty: I go into my system update spot and it says copy update package to storage card for system update. But when I tried to do this it tells me there aren't any on my phone and I have the ZTE majesty. I have other tech sites and they want to charge money for the answer a lot of money for the answer. I cannot update anything including my profile on my phone without first doing this thing that it tells me to do but the cell phone tells me nothing found. I hope that made sense.

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

exaist: crap

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

Crystal Hudson: Hi. I just got my majesty. I can play or view videos on Facebook. I'm not technically advanced and need your help. Thanks so much.

simplewoman236311: Thank you !

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

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

Lauren May: How do you install a hot spot?

Dustin Pfarr: Regarding the phone restart deal, wouldn't you just use the kill/exit applications button to reduce the RAM? I currently have the Proclaim. Had it since November of 2012. Toughest phone I've had, but I think its life is coming to an end. Need to find an upgrade in the near future. I'd love to get the Samsung Galaxy S3, but I'm cheap haha.
