    Requesting dedicated thread for ZTE Blade 10 Prime

    Has high medium/ low flagship specs, including NFC(which most sites erroneously deny), and is available for next to nothing- depending on deal $20 to $100ish to 200ish. It's by far the cheapest close to flagship phone from amongst all carriers, and cheaper than most budget offerings.
