ZTE Fury Review


Callers were not impressed with the Fury, claiming that we sounded very hollow and fuzzy around the edges, as if we were talking through a piece of wax paper. They said it was one of the poorer devices we tested, and rated us 7.5/10. On our end things were quite different, with the caller sounding very close and warm, as if they were on a landline. The battery is rated for 8 hours of talk time, and in our moderate usage we were able to go a day without having to recharge.


At $19.99 on contract ZTE is obviously going at the budget market with the Fury. Still, the phone manages to impress with its excellent build quality and snappy performance, proving again that you don’t need to spend the big dollars to get a very usable phone. While the call quality suffers a bit, ZTE has made a positive first impression with Sprint and we look forward to higher-end devices down the road.

Software version: N850V1.0.0B11
Android version: 2.3.6

ZTE Fury Review:


  • Good build quality

I am shocked to see that you are not satisfied with the phone, This is the best phone where we have so many features for less money. but i think its worth paying that money for this phone.
