Let’s face it, we all love the latest flagship releases from Samsung, Apple and the rest, but what we don’t love is laying down the best part of $1000 for the privilege of owning one. Thankfully, there are alternatives around like the Maven 2 from ZTE. Well-specced, great looking and packed full of powerful features, it makes owning a smartphone almost too easy and too inexpensive, if such a situation could ever exist.
Despite current marketing trends, most people still use smartphones for calls, texts, photos and social media. The rest depends on the individual needs of the user and, with the Google Play Store, is only a (usually free) click away. Why then, should you pay a fantastic sum of your hard earned dollars to do those things? Bottom line is you don’t have to. We’re not going to pretend that there aren’t the occasional compromise to be seen with the Maven 2, in order to keep the price down. But we still couldn’t get it to fail to do anything we needed when we played with it for a while.
The heart and soul of any smartphone are the processor and the battery. It’s all very well adding the best display available but, without the necessary muscle pushing it along, that super-duper screen you’re looking at becomes irrelevant. It’s as well, then, that the ZTE Maven 2 comes with a 11MHz Quad-Core processor and a 2300mAh battery, which bring the necessary computing and battery power to keep everything running smoothly all day long.
A 5MP rear camera with LED Flash with the ability to capture 720p HD video, and a 2MP front camera that is more than enough for those Instagram or Facebook selfies mean all your visual media options are well covered by the Maven 2. And if you want something to view them all on, the huge 5” screen is perfect for the job. Clean, clear and bright, the display handles the job all beautifully.
What’s that? You actually DO want to make calls and send texts? It’s just as well, then that the Maven 2 caters for that too. 4G, with 3G fall back means the fastest possible data speeds and clearest possible call quality, and Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi make up a significant array of connectivity options.
They’ve also managed to somehow squeeze in Dolby Audio for superb playback quality of all those audio files you’ll be able to carry around. You’ll do that with ease with the 8GB of internal storage and optional 64GB of MicroSD-added storage that is available to you. Go on, try and fill it, we dare you.
At Mr Aberthon, we love smartphones that provide value for money, but even we had to be surprised at the level of value ZTE managed to squeeze into the Maven 2. There’s literally nothing missing here that you need.
