nice spec for price, and great screen-to-body ratio.. but what is that "octa-core 1.5GHz CPU"? its good enough if its SD615/616/617 or helio x10

Looks like a good value device, just curious how that "octa core" would perform compared to a OnePlus One. If better, then it's another great bang for buck device for a different folk, if worse, I'll still highly recommend OnePlus One over it. Due to 3GB RAM (instead of the meh 2), 64GB internal Storage (instead of the meh 16GB), and 5MP front-facing camera (instead of meh 2MP). Basically, greater banger for buck.

"64GB internal Storage (instead of the meh 16GB)" The ZTE has a microsd slot so that's a plus it has going for it.

Built-in storage is usually faster than external MicroSD cards, but you probably won't notice the difference on SmartPhones in this price point, so, yeah, that's a plus for the ZTE. A built-in MicroSD card reader is more convenient than even these tiny external OTG ones (which I use with my OnePlus One): http://www.dx.com/p/kingmax-kotgr-02-multi-functional-micro-sd-card-reader-otg-to-usb-reader-black-329494

That seems pretty good for $199. How is ZTE on updates?

Zte is lousy on updates. My Grand X max+ that I use solely for WiFi gaming is still running kitkat....but. Must add, zte makes very dependable phones.

They're lousy because most, if not all ZTE devices are budget phones in the US. It is extremely rare for a flagship ZTE to be in the US (which is more likely to get updates)

Ca51no, you do realize that there is an update for lollipop on ZTE's support page for the Grand X Max+.

I did not, thank you

My zte axon pro got updated to marshmallow and 6.0.1 faster than Samsung etc updated. It's a best in class phone for manual dual camera and HD dolby sound (sucky battery tho), although I'm switching to 6.4-inch xiaomi max or different zte 6-incher this summer
