Straight Talk ZTE Whirl Full Review

The Straight Talk ZTE Whirl is another entry level ZTE device. This one is quite basic though it does come with Android 4.1. Now this is an 800mhz phone so not a ton of horsepower to be found. All around specs are about standard for a sub $100 phone. For example, we find a 3.0 mp camera and 3.5" screen so this is a fairly compact phone. This isn't a bad choice if you live in a GSM area and don't need the latest and greatest. This phone will use either Verizon or Sprint for service. This is essentially the same phone as ZTE Valet so if you need a CDMA phone to be used by either Verizon or Sprint, then check out the ZTE Valet.
