Internally, the ZTE Score has a 1200 mAh Lithium Ion battery that promises 4 hours of talking time, though since this is a 1 day review, I didnt have time to confirm that. If you plan on downloading games through the official android market installed on this phone, one thing you'll want to do right away with the Score is buy a micro sd card, since you only get 110 MB of internal storage. Unfortunately, if you plan on downloading graphic-intensive games(Shadowgun for instance.), you might want to skip over this phone, as its paltry 600mhz Qualcomm MSM7627 processor may not be able to pull off playing the latest games.

|The Score suffers from terrible viewing angles.|
Viewing angles used to not be to big a deal to me, as I'm mainly interested in tablets, and would always reason to myself: Im not ever going to NOT be looking directly at my tablet, so why does it matter what it looks like from the side? the LCD panel on this phone made me understand that viewing angles are sometimes not big deals, and sometimes are big deals. In this case, its a big deal. Unless your looking directly at the screen, you and/or your friends will most likely notice the bad viewing angles on the reflective and glossy finger print magnet that is this phones screen. Looking at it from any side other than straight on results in immediate discoloration.
|Camera and Speakers on the back of the Score.|
The Score's camera is unfortunately another flop. colors either look dark or too bright, and sometimes washed out when indoors. Outdoor pictures fared a little better, but dont make the mistake of expecting an iphone 4s quality camera on a budget android phone. There are a few test pics taken below.
Unfortunately ZTE hasnt really scored on anything with this phone. The horrid screen that plagues this phone will most likely steer customers away from it, in my opinion.
ZTE Scores a C- minus with this phone.
