Sprint announces the Force - a mid-range Android phone with NFC and LTE
Here's yet another model that we can add to the numerous Android mid-rangers out there - the Sprint Force by ZTE. So, what's the special thing about the Sprint Force? What is it that makes this model special? Well, to tell you the truth, we had a hard time finding that key feature, but the Force should be a very affordable NFC- and LTE-enabled smartphone, so we guess that adds just a pinch of differentiation to it.

Besides NFC and LTE, the Force seems like your typical lower-mid-end Android device with a 4" WVGA screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 5MP camera and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We know, the fact that the Force will launch with ICS on board is quite disappointing, and what's more, there's practically no guarantee that ZTE/Sprint will update it to Jelly Bean.

Anyways, if you still like what you see here, the Sprint Force is available right now for $49.99 with a two-year contract. Oh, and... may the Force be with you!

Dear Sprint.. stop wasting your time with ZTE Android models, and release some Windows Phone 8 Models!

Agreed, not worth locking yourself into a 2 year contract for.

Dear Sprint, Whoever is in charge of purchaseing your phone selection should be fired and dragged across the sprint campus. For the most part this person is always making poor phone judgement purchchases (remember the iphone thing), putting you behind your competition, and making most of your phones obselete before you get them. He may think he is making GREAT purchase, but what he is really doing is alienating your customers with poor hardware. In other words you are always late to the party. This need to be fixed.

Whats wrong with the phone? Well... it looks like it is wearing a protective gel cover, but its not. It has the lg optimus v style metal band that goes over the top but not all the way around just like the optimus v (bringing back bad memories). Charging port on the side which should be illegal already.
