Virgin Mobile, one of America’s leading prepaid carriers, has made a habit of introducing surprisingly solid smartphones at incredibly low price points of late, but still, nothing prepared us for this. This being the ZTE Supreme.
Although it only costs $299.99 (without any contractual obligations whatsoever), the Supreme lives up to its name in terms of specs and features, being pretty close to high-enders nowadays in several departments.
For one thing, it comes with a spacious 5-inch LCD screen boasting a once glorious 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution. Once glorious, now still pretty awesome. On the back of the phone, you get a top-notch 13 MP camera (huzzah), there’s Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and 4G LTE connectivity, plus the massive 2,500 mAh battery promises (and likely delivers) 15 hours of autonomy in continuous talk time.
As 300 bucks is well beneath the average price point of high-end Android smartphones nowadays, you shouldn’t be all too surprised Virgin Mobile and ZTE have been forced to cut a few corners, namely packing the Supreme with a mediocre dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and a not so new and hot version of the most popular mobile OS in the world, aka 4.1 Jelly Bean.
But come on, it’s $300, it’s off-contract and has most of the specs of a late 2013 flagship device. Can you really deny the thing’s “supremacy”?
