Get hitched with the ZTE Engage Video Transcript
-Hello everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET, and today, we're gonna take a look at the ZTE Engage from Cricket Wireless. Now, ZTE is known for its wide array of midlevel devices, but the Engage is more higher end than what we usually see. This 3G handset packs a 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen that has an 800 x 480 pixel resolution. The phone also runs on a nearly skinless Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. On the back is an 8-megapixel camera that can record 720p video and you also get a front-facing VGA camera. Powering the phone is a 1.4-gigahertz processor and a 1.9 ampere-hour battery. This will give you a reported talk time of about eight hours. Other features include Cricket's music subscription service, Muve Music, which lets you listen to and download thousands of albums and songs. You also get 1 gig of RAM and 32 gigs of expandable memory via a microSD card. If you're interested, this contract-free device was initially going for $250. Again, I'm Lynn and this has been Cricket Wireless's ZTE Engage.

ZTE Engage (Cricket Wireless) Review
The good: The ZTE Engage features Muve Music, has 32GB of expandable memory, and runs on Android 4.0.
The bad: The Engage takes poor photos and call quality was mediocre.
The bottom line: While the ZTE Engage flaunts a sturdier design and better screen than most ZTE handsets, it's a poor performer where it counts the most.
