Al Phelps: I now have the LG, much better than the Sansung or ZTE.
Jacob Roling: The ZTE Valet has wifi connectivity along with a tracfone data plan for $7 a month it has google play and can download pretty much anything. over all i think its better because it has more updated software is efficient
Oh Pkay: The centura freezes alot be aware of that, other than that Nice vid!
Smurf Eater: First thank you for pronouncing the name right. I have to laugh when others say "Valeete" and such. Second, while I like the Samsung look better, omce in a case, they look exactly the same. Thanks for the comparison. It will likely help many.
Catzilla: I recommend the Nova Launcher (Google Play Store). It's definitely faster than the stock launcher that ships with the phone and the free version is about 90% functional (there are no nags and nothing basic is disabled).
Holistic Health & Living: Most people would automatically assume that the Samsung had to be better, but you're right. The ZTE Valet is a much better deal.
EntangledQuanta: Good vid. Definately helped me decide on the ZTE. Two minor notes:
First, the appearance issue is purely subjective. IMO, the ZTE looks better. Second, I would have been interested in more info on and a comparison of battery life.
Thanks. Thumbs up.
ben zuckerman: what is the best tracfone android
Sydney J: Oh my god. I hate the Centura and its the most frustrating phone ive ever owned. i hate it. And its not just MY phone, i have two other friends with the same phone and they hate theirs too. Good phone for about a month but then it turns into hell
Al Phelps: Please check all the reviews for the Samsung before buying it. I wished I had. It freezes up and changes the time often. Very frustrating.
George Gill: I just recently ordered a lg optimus dynamic which is the other android based tracfone and I wasnt thinking about the cell service.. I thought they would go through at&t or t mobile like my lg800g, I do not get verizon in my area will a cdma phone go through sprint and verizon or just verizon??
dave gale (none): good review, thanks much. Is there a way to tell which tracfones run on Verizon like these phones do? Thanks Dave
Elena Guerrero: Thank you so much for this comparison! One question...how does the picture quality compare for the phones? Does one take better pictures than the other?
roomforthefiiixins: I've had the Valet for a couple months now. It sucks ass.
Kyle H: i paid 99.99 for my centura
Ron Garrett: 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.
toenail37: Can the Android 4.0 operating system be updated to 4.1?
hundio88: I got the zte from hsn for $80. Also came with 600 min!
SaturnHST: 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?
Shatterdofrr: 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
