This budget carrier locked device is also known as the AT&T Primetime in the market. It is one of the ZTE 4G LTE US cellular devices.

For its price, the device does look pretty decent and is entirely made of plastic. If you get the AT&T version which is the carrier-locked version, the back panel will have the AT&T logo. Otherwise, you’ll just get the ZTE logo etched onto the black plastic panel.

The tablet has a total weight of 18.5oz (525g) and is slightly heavier than other devices with the same screen size such as the Fire HD 10 from Amazon.

The device has a dimension of 10.1 x 6.5 x 0.3-inches (256.5 x 165.1 x 7.6mm).


In terms of the display, the budget tablet has a 10.1” TFT display with a resolution set at 1920 x 1200 pixels and a total PPI of 224. This is pretty good for the price range and it also has decent viewing angles. One thing that disappoints is the display brightness, which seems to be quite low and might cause problems under direct sunlight.

At the core, you’ll find a Snapdragon 625 processor, which is considered a mid-range processor used mainly in Android tablets. The SoC clocks at around 2Ghz.

Paired with this, you get a 2GB RAM and 32GB storage that can be expanded using a MicroSD card.

Probably the best feature of this device is the battery life. The device lasted for around 9 hours on a video streaming stress test.

Pros

  • Offers cellular option
  • Long battery life

Cons

  • 2GB RAM might not be enough when multitasking

This is almost a copy of the ZTE K92 but is superior in terms of the processor used but inferior in terms of the operating system and internal storage capacity.

However, this has better ratings and reviews among the two tablets.

In terms of design, the device looks similar to K92 with its black plastic casing and the ‘ZTE’ logo embedded on the rear panel.

However, the tablet is slightly heavier at 19.9oz (564g) and has slightly bigger dimensions at 10.28 x 6.61 x 0.34 (261.1 x 167.9 x 8.6mm).

The 10.1-inch display has a similar resolution to the AT&T Primetime set at 1920 x 1200 and a PPI of 224. Since both use similar displays, you will encounter dimness in this tablet as well.

At the core of the ZTE Zpad 10 inch tablet, you’ll find a Snapdragon 600, which is the first SoC of the Snapdragon 600 series and is considered a high-end chipset brand used in android smartphone and tablets.

This is supported by a 2GB RAM and a very disappointing 16GB internal storage. Battery capacity is similar at 9070mAh.

Pros

  • Decent display
  • High-end processor

Cons

  • OS should be updated

AT&T has quite several ZTE devices including tablets, smartphones and Wi-Fi routers.

The ZTE K88 is also known as AT&T Trek 2 HD here in the US.

The 8-inch display is quite light at 12.8oz (362.9g) thanks to the polycarbonate material used. The material is quite rubbery and gives the device a good grip and makes it easy to hold.

With dimension set at 8.5 x 4.9 x 0.4 inches (215.9 x 124.5 x 10.2mm), the device is easy to carry around and fits in a handbag.

Given the size of the screen, the PPI of the device is quite disappointing at 189. Usually, when the display size gets smaller, it’s easier to fit more pixels per inch.

The resolution is set at 1280 x 800 and is just enough for you to get by with your daily tasks.

At the core, you’ll find a mid-range SoC from the 600 series, Snapdragon 617 paired with a 2GB RAM that can handle web browsing, streaming, and basic tasks without an issue.

Now since the device is smaller, the battery capacity of 4600mAh is satisfactory and gives around 5 hours of battery life when used to continuously stream a video over a cellular network at full brightness.

Pros

  • Easy to carry around
  • Good connectivity

Cons

  • Display pixelation

This 8-inch tablet was first released in Canada. The device was carrier locked to Bell Canada.

Almost all ZTE tablets are quite similar when it comes to design with their black plastic casing and the ZTE logo.

The device weighs 11.6oz (330 g) and is lighter than the ZTE K88 which has a similar display size. It’s also slimmer than the K88 which has a thickness of 0.4” (10.2mm). The dimensions of the View 2 are set at 8.5 x 4.9 x 0.3 inches (215 x 125 x 9.4mm).


In terms of display, both devices are similar in resolution and PPI.

Now for the core, you get a Snapdragon 210 which is an entry-level processor so expect some lag when you try multitasking and slow cold bootup.

To make matters worse, the device has a 1GB RAM and 8GB Internal storage.
 

Battery capacity is quite similar to the K88.

Pros

  • Decent battery life for the price

Cons

  • Slow processors
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB storage

ZTE tablets are quite basic in terms of design. However, some do have high-end processors and can easily assist you in accomplishing your daily tasks and even multitask to a certain extent.

On the other hand, some devices feature entry-level processors paired with very low RAM and are basic, allowing users to only accomplish their daily tasks.
