Hardware is entry level with an 800mhz processor and a 3mp camera. What's worth checking out is the fact that it is an inexpensive way to get the latest Android operating system. Don't be fooled by the rather basic specs because Android 4.1 makes this phone a pretty good performer.

The ZTE Valet is an entry level phone with fairly basic specs. The important thing about this phone is that it comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Now with the latest Android OS even these entry level phones now offer top notch performance. Note that this phone is of the CDMA variety so the phone will be activated with either Verizon or Sprint.

Features And Performance

Performance is great because of the latest Operating System. Don't let the fact that this is an entry level phone fool you because with Android 4, even an entry level phone can give you great performance. Note that this phone has all of the features available on Android. This includes app downloads using Google Play. You will also get all features available on Google maps, including navigation.

There aren't a whole lot of extras features to speak of as this is an entry level phone. The camera is the only real downside here since it is only 3mp. The images look ok but they aren't the best.
