ZTE Score hands-on

ZTE Score hands-on
If listening to some head banging tunes is your kind of thing, then you might be enticed by the offerings available with the Muve Music enabled ZTE Score for Cricket Wireless. Priced modestly at $129.99, this entry-level Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone packs all of the same deep features found with other Android smartphones, but its focus is primarily found with its unlimited music offer.

Getting our hands on the ZTE Score, the first thing right off the bat that we notice, is its love of smudges and debris – in fact, it’s very easy to get its glossy exterior dirtied up by the usual nasty baddies out there. However, we do like the beefy looking soft touch coating added to its bezel, which would seem to absorb some bumps and bruises if it were dropped. Since it’s primarily constructed out of the plastic, it doesn’t radiate that much of a solid feel, but nonetheless, it keeps the entire thing featherweight.

Boasting a 3.5” HVGA display, there’s nothing pretty to say about it, especially when it appears to be bland looking. In addition, the 600MHz processor inside the thing won’t do justice for power users, but rather, its sufficient enough to handle basic needs. Finally, in the rear, there’s a 3.2-megapixel camera encased within a circlular pattern.

Sure it’s considered to be a ho-hum device by today’s standards, but for a mere $129.99 no-contract, you can’t find that many contemporary phones priced that affordably – well, at least it’ll satisfy music lovers with its Muve Music service.
