IMAG0754 The ZTE Open with FirefoxOS is a simple and affordable smartphpone.  I was one of the fortunate few that was able to snag one on ebay when ZTE was selling them directly.  I wasn’t able to find one in Europe last month and am very excited to finally have it in my hands.  I am going to enjoy testing this new smartphone.

The first thing I would like to mention is how much it cost.  I paid $80 shipped.  It came with a 4 gig microsd card, wall charger, usb cable and headphones.  As usual the headphones look as cheap as cheap as a pair of Apple earbuds. Nevertheless, the phone is unlocked and it comes with a memory card?  It’s tiring trying to correct the internet folk who say they can get a $100 android phone with all the bells and whistles.  Sure, a flagship phone WITH a 2 yr contract will get you the best but $80 for a new smartphone, no contract and unlocked?  Yes, I am interested!

I am not going to take this time to do a full review.  This is my secondary prepaid phone.  I have no intentions of replacing my HTC One.
