Default ZTE Avail 2 (Z992)

Seems AT&T is almost ready to release the new Avail 2 which according to the official ZTE website brings Android Jelly Bean 4.1, also it may seem that BestBuy is now selling the device online for $80 bucks off contract.

What do you guys think?

I think a 2mp camera these days is useless.

the only reason I ended up with the merit/avail in the first place was a 5mp camera at $80 was a steal.

The ZTE Prelude (ZTE Z993 Prelude Specifications | Smartphone Zero) looks like the same hardware. Likely a US/Euro edition going on..

Actually it looks like the same thing, AIO wireless is an MVNO running on AT&T i think so the Prelude would be the AVail 2 version for AIO wireless in the US, wouldn't a Euro version have frequency like 900 instead of 850 too?

Do not understand what the purpose of this device in the era of quad-core dragon, and provided with a 2mp camera. Is JB only reason ... no thanks.

The reason because it's low end -mid range device, not everyone can afford S4s or iPhones you know

I just find it weird they would take such a major step back from 5.0mp camera to a 2.0 camera with this.

I was ALMOST gonna buy one till I saw that. It probably could have been helpful in porting a higher OS to the original avail/merit too, but I have a feeling the camera would end up being an issue.

yeah that's the only issue i for see that would be a little of a deal breaker, but could be a mistake, we will certainly know once it's made official by AT&T

This is likely due to ZTEs cutting corners to keep the price low. Update the CPU HW, cut back in other areas...

Smile I just bought the Avail2 Z992

I got mine a day ago at the AT&T online price $41. WHAT A STEAL!

And I'm coming from an S3. Never broke a phone. Ever. But it fell out of my belt clip; in its Seideo case flat onto my hardwood floor. No glass impact as the case prevented that but from shock the glass shattered. Still usable but I got the Avail2 to carry me sending this out for repair ($99).

I'm amazed at this phone. All the features except 4G; and not as refined but what the heck $510 less? I have voice - texting - wifi - camera - apps - Pandora - Rhapsody - TuneIn - remotes for Roku - Sonos - NuVo

Replaceable battery and 32gb MicroSD slot. Nice fit & finish.

Its a little slower in use than the S3. I'm pretty tolerant considering the value.

Yep. 4.1.1 as for the camera it hasn't been important yet; but it seems ok. Probably on par with my 3GS iPhone. Maybe I can shoot a couple pictures and send to you.

No link as I literally walked into the local AT&T store and saw it sitting on the shelf for $79.99.. Also, it doesn't seem to be on AT&T's GoPhone portal.

Don't know what to tell ya. Currently fussing about trying to find a custom ROM I could flash or another rooting method, still haven't found any that work.

OK, a week out & I'm finding some faults that aren't big; considering the cost.

(1) The wifi range is low (2) the camera is only fair. It'll capture a shot; but not quite in the league with my old 3GS (3) alert seems tied to all volumes together incl ring volume (4) for some reason in calendar I can't always add to an event; like the capacity is full (5) processor is slow! can be a short wait ...

I'll add that cell call quality is perhaps the best I've experienced.

$40.99 on AT&T online as a prepay phone Z992

The wifi works fine < 75 feet for me, the camera snaps 16x12 pics (which is bigger than you're ever going to view on a modern display, shy of a dell 30inch, anyway (edit: I'm basing this on a standard 1920x1080 display in which the image will have to be scaled down to fit vertically)), the volume thing is annoying though.

As for the calendar, I haven't bothered with it.. The CPU is actually fast if you compare it to other similarly-priced phones.

It is marketed as an entry-level android, and for the price, I don't really think you can beat it.

My only major complaints thusfar are:
Battery Life
RAM
Impossible to root.

Re. Point 3 in PM771's post, tying notification, ringtone & alert volumes together was an ICS thing.

There's an app which separates the volumes again, I can't for the life of me remember what it's called though. If you're interested, I'll see if I can find it.

Just noticed this - the only one I know of is "ICS+ Enhanced Ringer Control"

I could use an Avail 2 for development purposes . I dislike working remotely.

Default z992 for voip phone?

I am thinking of buying a Z992 for a cheap voip phone. I am cash poor and need to find a cheap way to talk. If I buy this phone, will it run google voice over wifi, with the go phone minutes as a backup when wifi is not available? I noticed they dont sell it with the 10c/minute plan (would that be to prevent this type of nearly free configuration?) I have another old go phone with 10c per minute plan, can I take that sim and put it in this phone?

thanks in advance for you help

Greg
