I recently purchased this phone because the ZTE Zmax Pro I had for a while was stolen from me by some low life. I had insurance on the phone but when I went to Metro to pay the deductible and get the replacement phone I couldn't because Metro no longer carries the Zmax because the Blade Zmax is out now so I was forced to choose another phone so I picked the a30 and so far I'm impressed, the fingerprint scanner more responsive and the screen is nicer looking, I know the a30 is 720 and the Max is 1080. I do miss the 6in screen of the Zmax though. I should have gotten the Blade Zmax but with the price of the phone and and the store telling me I had to get the $60 plan, it was just out of my price range at the moment.
I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the top speaker (2 front mounted speakers) to work. Taking it back tomorrow to get it worked out or a refund.
