ZTE Open review: Firefox OS gets off to a modest but promising start


As the first Firefox OS smartphone, the ZTE Open is an ambassador for its platform: it's built to prove that web apps can do the hard work of their

Very simple interface ; Affordable price ; Long battery life

Sluggish performance ; Poor camera ; Few native apps

ZTE's first Firefox OS device hits the right notes for developers and some first-time smartphone owners, but others will want a more advanced handset.

ZTE Open review: Cheap, pretty, woefully underpowered


ZTE's Open is an attractive smartphone that represents Firefox OS's budget aspirations.

Hardware performance suffers all across the board, from image quality to the time it takes to complete a task. Call quality wasn't so hot, either.

Skip the ZTE Open and keep hunting for your low-cost smartphone, unless simplicity or Firefox development are at the top of your list.

ZTE Open (Unlocked)


We're giving the unlocked ZTE Open with the Firefox OS huge points for its very reasonable price, but the software needs more polish before it's consumer-ready.

Very inexpensive for an unlocked smartphone. Robust Web browser

Unfinished software. Dim screen. Poor camera and GPS

no DRM (and no plugins)—creates some problems for Web video. The Firefox OS has a working YouTube app, but sites like Netflix and failed to stream video because the browser couldn't handle their proprietary video plug-ins.

ZTE Open


The Firefox phone comes to the UK. Is this £60 'web' phone worth a punt?

Web-based Firefox OS platform easy to create apps for, Very cheap for a full smartphone, Non-premium app culture

Inaccurate touch keyboard, Low-resolution screen, Mediocre camera with no flash
