Smartphone Quick Review –  ZTE Majesty


Just because ZTE is producing a lot of smartphones these days does not mean that it is already included in one of the best brands of electronic devices. The ZTE Majesty, in spite of its name, only has a few special features which can attract customers. We are guessing that this is the reason why ZTE did not put a much expensive price in this handset. According to CNET, the Majesty is distributed by Net10, Straight Talk as well as Walmart stores in the United States for less than $170 which is pretty cheap.

Smartphone Quick Review -  ZTE Majesty

Design, Display And Camera

First of all, the ZTE Majesty looks exactly like a normal mid-range mobile phone. Measuring 5.31 x 2.64 x 0.42 inches and weighing less than 6 lbs, this handset is covered in black chassis that is both smooth and sleek at the same time. There is a logo on top of the display while the three touch buttons are located at the bottom.

Speaking of which, the Majesty exhibits 4.5 inches of diagonal screen size but with only 480 x 854 pixels of display resolution. Obviously, we can see that it does not have much to offer in terms of this department. This is why it is a good thing that this mobile phone is also equipped with a 5-megapixel camera at the back and 0.3-megapixel camera at the front. Even though this is only a mid-range handset, the fact that it has a web camera is very impressive.


Processor And Connectivity

Smartphone Quick Review -  ZTE MajestyWhen it comes to its performance, the ZTE Majesty packs a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm MSM8625 processor which ultimately powers its Android 4.1 operating system. The RAM has 768 MB – which is a little strange for a storage size – while the internal memory is 4 GB. If users wish, there is a memory card slot for expansion compatible with MicroSD which they can use. Meanwhile, we still don’t know how sparing the 2000 mAh battery capacity can be according to the average user but we expect that it can last for more or less than 5 hours. On the other hand, it is unfortunate that the Majesty does not have LTE connectivity. It only supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and GPS navigation – and even though these are enough, it would still be better if it had 4G coverage.

The Final Verdict

If we consider the price first, there is not doubt that the ZTE Majesty is affordable especially for a mid-range mobile phone. It has a number of good features like its camera, CPU and storage while also dealing with problems of its own like the display and RAM size. Regardless, the most important is that this handset can perform basic mobile phone tasks with decency.

Is the ZTE Majesty worth your money?

    The phone can overheat really fast and sometimes the apps don’t work. Battery life is okay, will try to get a new phone ASAP!!!

    I bought this phone and within 24 hours it had reset twice and crashed 3 times. Half the pre-installed apps didn’t work and no matter what android apps I download, I can’t get the cameras on the phone to work in any way shape or form. No matter the camera app, it just stays black-screened for a solid minute then goes back to home screen. I am taking this phone back tomorrow and I am very, very disappointed. The Galaxy Centrino for Straight Talk worked WAY more reliably for a year and a half before I bought this. The Galaxy Centrino costs like 30 bucks now… Seriously, Straight Talk? A $30 phone working marvelously better than a $160 phone? Bite me, I’m switching.

    I don’t know if I should laugh at this so call phone or curse it. Sometimes things are just so bad there’s no words strong enough to describe it, and that happens to be the case with this pathetic, ZTE majesty. Every call drops. Web pages rarely load. When they do, it takes a,solid three minutes and that’s if you’re lucky! I can’t wait to get rid if it. And no, I’m not using it to write this. Horrible straight from the box. Returned and 2nd one, same exact problems! It should be pulled from the market. I’m not kidding.
