Interface and Functionality:

Being a prepaid device and all, we’re forgiving to see this one sporting Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread – in fact, it’s a mostly vanilla experience. Much like some of the devices on Sprint’s lineup, this one relies on the carrier’s ID pack enhancements to provide us with various personalization elements to better fit our personality. Hey, we can’t complain about a stock experience, since you know, it’s Android in its purest form.

Running the show, a single-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655 processor manages to deliver a decent performance in keeping things nice and smooth. Gladly, it’s effective in handling both basic and intensive tasks with minimal instances of lag or slowdown – so yeah, it’s surprisingly efficient.


Camera:

Needless to say, one can’t expect much in terms of photo prowess with most of the prepaid devices out there, but nevertheless, we’re somewhat willful in accepting its quality for outdoor scenery and macro shots. Previewing them, they appear pleasant looking, but it’s nothing that’s going to replace your point and shoot camera – especially when it doesn’t handle low lighting situations that great. Regrettably, the LED is absolutely worthless seeing that it fails to even sprinkle a tiny bit of lighting to the shot. However, we can’t recommend trying to shoot videos with this one, since that it’s flawed tremendously by some distracting artifacting elements that are constantly prevalent throughout its recording.

Internet and Connectivity:

For a 3G smartphone, we can handle the fact that it takes under a minute to load our web site entirely, but looking beyond that, it’s able to deliver a pleasing web browsing experience. Sure, it might exhibit some choppy movements with its navigational controls, but at least it’s never crawling to the point unusable. Considering it’s handling Flash content without much tug, we’re content with what we’re presented with on the ZTE Warp.

For those looking to travel abroad, you’ll need to look elsewhere because this one is strictly reserved to work with Boost/Sprint’s network. Along for the ride, it feature all the usual connectivity items such as aGPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi – albeit, there’s no mobile hotspot function with this one.
