Review: ZTE Groove

ZTE Groove is an entry level handset that comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and a 3.5-inch HVGA touch screen of  480 x 320 pixel resolution. The device measures 4.67-inch in length, 2.46-inch wide and 0.55-inch thick.

The main drawback of the handset is the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, which is already outdated. The handset comes with a few standard Google apps such as Gmail, Maps with Navigation, Latitude, Places, Google Play, Search, Talk, and YouTube.

The device also has Cricket-specific apps, like its own navigator. The My Account app will help you to manage your phone payments and the MyBackup app lets you to store your contact information in the cloud.

With a Yellow Page-esque app named Cricket 411, you can access information for the nearest pizza shop or grocery store.

The ZTE Groove also sorts  two pre-loaded games –  Uno and Bubble Bash 2.

The 3.2-megapixel rear camera features LED flash and capable for digitally zooming. It also features five white balances, three photo sizes, three quality adjustments, five saturation levels, and four color effects.

The Groove also has a VGA front-facing camera with zoom, white balance, and quality adjustments options.


ZTE Groove runs on old Android 2.3 OS and has a low-resolution touch screen with a narrow viewing angle and poor audio qualities. That could be a set back.
