Think about it like this, GM is a huge manufacturer that every loves or hates but, has some what trust in, along comes this crappy little car manufacturer Hyundai, instantly getting the stigma of just being garbage, fast forward ten years and look at what they make now. Considering time tables, and the fact the automotive design would take longer that cell phone, you would see a similar situation brewing here. ZTE made a phone that wasn't perfect, FOR $200. Now they are trying to step it up a notch, yes at this point, maybe they can't compete with HTC or Samsung. But they are getting closer. I wouldn't discount them on one bad experience. Just my two cents
That's a great point but ZTE lost me due to customer service. I recently sent the my Warp to get it repair because it was shutting off, not rebooting but literally turned off. Having freezing and rebooting is just normal for me. I actually welcome the rebooting but having the phone shut off, I have no idea for how long it's been off to miss calls or texts.

Anyway, after less than 2 weeks, my Warp shutting off again, mind you I was without my Warp for 2 weeks during the repair. So call back ZTE and the rep tells me that the technician didn't find anything wrong with it so the only thing the tech did was update the software. I guess they don't believe customer's words. So I'll be without my Warp for another 2 weeks. Since my Warp is my only smart phone, I'll be going old school and use my old Samsung Rant for another 2 weeks!
