ZTE Optik Review

0. phoneArena posted on 06 Apr 2012, 06:20

ZTE is looking to make a name in the US market, and Sprint is looking to stay relevant in the tablet market since it lost out on the new iPad. Enter the ZTE Optik, a sub-$100 7” tablet on contract that won’t make you laugh when you pick it up. It has a very respectable spec sheet with a 1.2GHz Snapdragon S3 processor, 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras...

Still on Android 3.2? Will be upgrated to ICS ? If yes it seems a decent tablet for a good price :-)

I think you guys gave it too low of a rating, given that you admit that cameras dont really matter much on tablets. Anyway this is a pretty good tablet for the money, and has a great feel to it. Its not the best but it is more than adequate for most things you'll do. And if you're already a sprint customer and you receive an employee discount, you could possibly get it for just 99 cents on a 2 yr contract and minimum plan of 19.99/mo. I cant think of another carrier with a tablet offer even remotely that good.

Come on, most people don't have an employee discount so it wont be 99¢ on contract for them? But at $99 i think it's a great deal & if I were with Sprint I would most likely pick one up but I am not so I will not. The Pantech Element on AT&T is a better option with a bigger screen & 4G LTE for just a little more money is a better deal???

And YES you can get it for $0.99 through Sprint and I am not an employee. I am a small business who in fact just got an email from my Acct. Mgr. and was offered this deal. I took it to see what this is all about. The plans I think could be a little better. I went with the 3GB for $34.99 a mo. The options were:
3G 3GB plan - $34.99
3G 6GB plan - $49.99
3G 12GB plan - $79.99
I can always upgrade if I find that I am using more without a penalty.

I currently don't have a tablet and this might be a good one to learn on.

Fast tablet and easy to use. Reading e mail is very easy to see without enlarging the screen this coming from someone who usually needs reading glasses Screen crisp and clear and I love the large size Great price, fast delivery and larger than expectedI am giving this full stars because i do like the tab when it works large screen very responsive screen and alot of space to work with as well as the service being pretty good. i recommend this tab every one....

I have using this tablet for about 45 day. It is a nice tablet overall. It does the job well for typing and work related items. Remote control for windows computers. I am enjoying it right now. Has great feel for a screen keyboard and works great in any direction you grab it. You can type from all 4 sides which means that it is easy to grab and get aroud any position. Do not like the propritary charger plug end. Not smart. Should of stuck to usb mini or micro. Down fall my unit has as of yesterday shot the battery. Charged it 24 hours and got 41%. I have been using it for an hour and now have 23%. I hope this is not common. It is a nice unit for the money.
