ZTE Boost Max
The word “bargain” doesn’t have to have a negative connotation. There are a handful of mid-range to low-end phones I’d consider using for myself if my budgets was tighter, or if I was just trying on a phone for size. If I were in the market for a phablet-sized smartphone, the ZTE Boost Max would be a solid choice.
With a bright, 5.7-inch display, capable 8-megapixel camera, and cool-looking chassis, the Boost Max has a lot to boast about, especially for its $300 price without a contract. But it's even bigger than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, so forget about hauling it in your pants pocket, unless your pants are particularly roomy.
As for performance, the so-so specs meant that Boost Max often felt snappy—except when it didn’t. There were times where the interface would stutter while transitioning between apps. The lag was apparent as I switched back and forth between them, and especially when I tacked on a hefty number of active widgets to the Home screen, or loaded a hefty game like Prince of Persia: Shadow & Flame
