About the ZTE ZMax 2

While the original ZTE ZMax had it’s flaws, the price for such a phone was quite attractive.  Though the original never made it to Straight Talk, the hopefully new and improved ZTE ZMax 2 will hopefully show up for Straight Talk Soon. Like the original, the ZMax 2 will feature a large form factor screen in the 5.5 to 5.7 inch size. Hopefully, the new version will improve on the original’s somewhat dim screen. Now this is going to be a large phone so it will be heavy and somewhat clunky. That said, this is a budget large form factor device so that is just something one has to live with. We shall see what the new ZMax 2 will hold. That said, this may be a large phone worth taking a look at for those of you to whom size matters.
