Detailed review of ZTE Boost Max+'s features

What are the advantages and disadvantages of choosing the ZTE Boost Max+? We conducted a deep-dive review into what makes this phone great. We did a thorough analysis into the often compared aspects of the device!

Summary of ZTE Boost Max+ performance and functions

The size and weight of the ZTE Boost Max+

The body of the ZTE Boost Max+ is 3.3 inches (82.6 mm) wide, 6.5 inches (165.1 mm) long, and 0.4 inches (10.2 mm) thick. Also, the screen size is 5.7 inch, and it weighs 194.8 oz (194.8 g). Its size is large compared to normal smart phones. While it may be slightly difficult to use with one hand, the screen is large and easy to see. I think this is a nice balance. It is recommended for those who want large screens instead of operating with one hand. It is quite heavy and not really suitable for operating with one hand.

The battery life of the ZTE Boost Max+

The ZTE Boost Max+ has a battery capacity of 3400 mAh. The battery's capacity is slightly larger than standard smart phones.

The processing capability of the ZTE Boost Max+

The memory capacity is 2GB. CPU performance is slightly lower than standard smartphones. While it is perfectly suitable for searching the web and sending messages, people who use their smartphone for more demanding purposes will likely feel that its performance is subpar. It has the memory capacity of a standard smartphone. Having more capacity would make apps less likely to crash and make it easier to use, but the performance is fine for the Internet and emailing. For gaming, you would want the next level up in performance.

The camera of the ZTE Boost Max+

The ZTE Boost Max+ has a back camera with 8 MP. The front camera has 1 MP. The rear camera performance is about the same as a typical smartphone. The image quality for longer distance photography is less than satisfactory, but on the whole, there are no issues with short distance photos. Again, the performance of the front camera is lower than that of ordinary smartphones. Don't expect great image quality from this either.

Review of the product design of the ZTE Boost Max+

Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets

When deciding whether to buy an ZTE Boost Max+, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the ZTE Boost Max+ around and put it away.

Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around

The size of the ZTE Boost Max+ allows it to be carried in one hand, but depending on the user it might feel too large to hold comfortably. Furthermore, care must be taken when carrying it along with a wallet as it is relatively easy to drop if you are not paying attention.

Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket

It doesn't feel strange even when you put the ZTE Boost Max+ in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.

Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket

With the ZTE Boost Max+, it is quite difficult to put it into your pocket and then take it out again. If you try to put it in your pocket, the cloth in your pocket may rip, or the phone may be damaged because of pressure.

Ease of getting it in and out of your bag

The ZTE Boost Max+ is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the ZTE Boost Max+ by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

The large size of the ZTE Boost Max+ makes controlling it with one hand difficult. If you have to use it with one hand, it is better to lay it in the palm of the hand rather than grabbing onto it. It isn't difficult once you get used to it, but as this grip is fairly unstable care must be taken not to drop it inadvertently.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

The ZTE Boost Max+ feels too heavy to operate with one hand, so the device wouldn't be a good choice even if you are just going to use it for a short period of time. We suggest that you hold it tightly with both hands as it may hurt your hands if you use it with just one hand for an extended period of time.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

When using the ZTE Boost Max+ with just one hand, it is quite difficult to press the button on the screen edge. We suggest you operate the device with both your hands rather than pushing your luck with just one hand.

The size of the buttons on the App

The buttons displayed on the ZTE Boost Max+ are large, and therefore it is difficult to press the wrong ones. While some buttons may look small depending on the app, you probably won't feel that stressed when you actually use it.

Ease of typing in letters using the flick function

Inputting keys with one hand with the ZTE Boost Max+ can be done but this grip tends to feel unstable. Because of this sometimes you can drop it carelessly when trying to type quickly. If you take your time when typing though you will be unlikely to drop it.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

I think it is easy to use the buttons on the ZTE Boost Max+ as they are displayed in large sizes. However, it is difficult not to make typos when typing at high speeds. I don't think you will feel it difficult to type if you are careful when typing.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the ZTE Boost Max+ is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

Because the display of the ZTE Boost Max+ is much larger than ordinary phones, characters are displayed quite large. Therefore, it is suitable for reading long bodies of text and exchanging long messages while doing research.

Ease of reading sentences

Since the ZTE Boost Max+ displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The ZTE Boost Max+ can display photos and videos beautifully. While people with good eyes can see jagged outlines when they look at the display up close, it is not really something of concern.

Ease of writing sentences

For the ZTE Boost Max+, the on-screen keyboard covers part of the screen when typing, but there is sufficient space for operation. Its size is suitable for entering long sentences, but I feel it may be a bit clumsy when editing office documents.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

The ZTE Boost Max+ has performance that allows it to be used comfortably for phone calls, emails, and chat. It is rare but sometimes there is lag. Still, this almost never occurs, so it can be said to be suitable for normal use.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

The performance felt lacking when using the internet and SNS. Sometimes the apps felt like they were running slowly. If I kept using it when that happened apps would close suddenly or stop completely.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

There isn't any sense of inadequate performance even when several apps are used at the same time and there is frequent switching between apps. In rare cases, it may feel slow and the display may lag, but I don't think one will feel stressed during practical use.
