Interface

The Force runs Android 4.0.4 at its base, and as a Sprint ID device is mostly vanilla Android out of the box. Unfortunately ZTE has included a lot of duplicate apps, such as their own alarm clock, timer, music and video players and call log, but on the whole preloaded apps are light. ZTE has reworked the lock screen to allow unlocking into the camera or to toggle vibrate mode, but instead of sliding the targets like every other device on the market you have to hold them.

Processor and Memory

As you can see from the benchmarks the dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor performs quite well. Paired with 1GB of RAM it easily runs with the top devices of last year like the HTC One X or Samsung Galaxy S III. Thanks in part to the mostly vanilla build of Android, UI performance is plenty smooth and we didn’t experience any lag.

Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE 4129

Connectivity

The Force supports Sprint’s LTE network, though most users right now will be using its 3G capabilities. It has all the other connection options you’d expect from a modern smartphone, including Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0.

"Average" build quality and camera performance are suddenly cons on a low-midrange phone?

I think this phone should have gotten a 7.5.. 6.5 is too harsh.

Yes the build quality depends on the engineering and also the hardware which is used. so this hardware might only support the 6.5

This phone is a good phone with descent features and at the low cost. Good Mobile from ZTE.
