The ZFive2 price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare ZTE ZFive2 prices from around the web here on The Informr.

I don't really like this phone.

I don't really like this phone because I had one and it won't transfer apps to the SD card once it reaches the limit it won't let you download apps so yes this phone is not reliable as thought it was... Gives the the notifications late overall the battery seems very good holds charge

but the phone still has it's problems one of them is the screen the colors within the phone are very light not Vivid like an LG phone that gives brilliant colors.. If someone decides to purchase this phone then they would know what I'm talking about here.

INVEST IN BETTER PHONE DO NOT BUY!

If you are looking for a cheap phone do not. Invest in a more viable, longlasting phone even if it takes a long time to invest. Phones like this are so shitty and won't cut it in 2017. The memory is God awful so it shuts you out of every app. The storage is horrific.  Even at 8GB the OS apps take up half of it is not more so you can only download 3-6 average apps like (YouTube, Twitter etc).  You can't even check on refresh your mail because it takes up all your storage. There is a reason why Apple devices are so popular. Because they actually do its JOB. I'm telling you don't waste your money on this piece of junk and save up for an iPhone even if it takes you months to save up it will be worth it and will last your for years.

By far the WORST phone I have ever owned!

This phone is absolutely terrible. It closes out of whatever you're doing at random, takes literally forever for anything on the internet to work properly (and that's with high speed data and no other apps open), the camera is awful, I don't even bother using it. The keyboard either takes forever to come up or doesn't come up at all. And there is NO storage on it. The wifi turns itself on and off along with the ring tone. Do not waste your money on it.
