Do you know how to calibrate the proximity sensor? When I make a call my
screen turns off and takes up to 5-10 seconds to turn on!

I would have liked to have seen some real world comparisons. Opening a
browser and loading the homepage. A benchmark to measure internal storage
speed. Any benchmark, actually.

good review, i am getting my parents their first touch screen and wasnt
sure between these 2 phones, after watching the review i decided to get
them the zte phone because the zte has flash on the camera and it comes
with a 4gb sd card

Amazon currently offers both phones on sale. The ZTE Valet is $69.99 with
$4.95 shipping and the Samsung Centura is $99.99 with free shipping.

I would like to see it next to a 7″ tablet or a paperback book since I
spend more time reading those than playing cards but otherwise good review.

I have the Centura coming in tomorrow, but I hear a lot of complaints about
how the clock randomly changes the time. Maybe I should’ve went with the
Valet?

How bout app wise

How are transferred minutes from an old phone added to the Valet? Does it
all go on as talk time, or is it some how distributed among all the
different categories?

Is the power button flimsy on the ZTE?

Thanks for this video. Very helpful. My brother and I have verizon razr
maxxes with unlimited text since that’s our primary mode of communication.
However my mom is looking for an android upgrade to her tracfone. She
doesn’t text a lot and has access to wi-fi so this should be a good value.
I’m mildly annoyed to hear about the breakdown of units by call, text, and
data. They are going to drive away potential users who want a smartphone
but can’t afford a regular plan.

Can the Android 4.0 operating system be updated to 4.1?

Ok I found it. Thanks

Thanks for this video. I have found these phones on Amazon for less than at
the Tracfone web site. I have been trying to pick one for an upgrade from
LG. Your review helped to highlight their good points and weaknesses.
Thanks

So does the valet not run off minutes from tracfone like regular phones
from them? And does it matter in my location(Alaska) and what is the
messaging like(iphone type?)

Have a ZTE about 2 months now and the phone service sucks!!! Don’t know
about the Samsung, any others?

Ive had both! Currently have the ZTE Valet…I got the Centura when it
first came out! Great phone..Gave to dad… Got an Iphone..Hated it! and
yes I went back to looking at the Centura and Valet! Hands down beter than
the Iphone. Droid is where its at! using the Valet now and like it a
lot…Better Processor and 4.1 Android. Also you have to get an SD card for
the Centura. The valet comes with one. The Valet is better value. BTW I
like both phones! hard choice but Valet wins.. Im on Straight Talk BTW and
both phones are CDMA so you should be on Verizon tower! Hope this helps

With cheap phones like these “beauty” takes a back seat to function and
bang for your buck. Which means the ZTE wins this comparison hands down. As
for data, well if you can manage to have access to free wifi, at work, at
home, school, etc then you’ll be pretty much covered and will be able to
save your data time for a time and place when it is most useful away from
those wifi access points.

KneelB4Bacon is right. Voice, text and data are ALL treated separately.
It’s explained further on HSN’s web site (where it’s currently $79.95 w/
600 minutes free [Oh.. and triple mins for life]) and Tracfone’s. I even
called TF to verify. Cool thing is when you buy say.. a 60 minute card..
you get 60 min of voice AND 60 text messages AND 60 MB of data! In other
words.. viewing a text message doesn’t subtract .5 min of voice like on old
Tracfones. A text is a text and only deducts from your text count. BTW..
“data” DOES rollover from month to month, just not the other two.

Most people don’t realize that a web page (of course.. a downloaded file
@ x mb is xmb) is data because they’re used to surfing the web at home.
Also on older Tracfones that DID have “surfing” capabilities.. you were
charged by “time” and not data. Stay on the same web page for 30 min and
you just ate up 30 min of talk time as well. It’s not the same way with
these new Android plans.

Does using the data deduct minutes or is it a separate thing

Reply

Yes, It’s called “Tracfone My Account” and you can get it on the Google
Play store. The App also has a widget that shows your remaining balance, so
you can put it on a nearby home screen without having to start the main app
every time.

Zane wv January 17, 2014 at 4:50 pm

Is there an app fpr your balance and days left? Thanks!

Catzilla January 17, 2014 at 5:33 pm

The phone only charges for the amount of data accessed, instead of by the
minute, like on the older Tracfones. You can check which Apps are accessing
data in the Settings menu. So, as long as you don’t refresh the browser or
do anything that starts a new Internet connection, it won’t use the data
minutes. Also, if you have access to a WiFi connection, the phone will use
that, instead of the phone’s data network.
