Sprint already unveiled the ZTE Force for Boost Mobile a few days ago, but it appears the carrier has plans to sell the mid-ranger in a non-prepaid flavor as well. In fact, the 4-incher is already up for grabs with two-year contracts for as little as $49.99 under the simpler name of Sprint Force.
Sounds affordable, we know, but the truth is you’ll find better deals for better phones on other carriers. Or even on Sprint. Just think about it, is a device going for $200 with prepaid plans worth 50 bucks with a 24-month contract? Probably not.
Not to mention Sprint’s “offer” also has one extra string attached – a $50 mail-in rebate card that technically brings the real price of the Force up to $100 upfront. Don’t get us wrong, the Force is not a total dud. But it’s not a stud either, with Android 4.0 ICS, an 800 x 480 pix res display, a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU, 1 GB of RAM, a 5 MP rear-facing camera and a 1,730 mAh battery.
