Did this video help you?

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). 

Al Phelps: I now have the LG, much better than the Sansung or ZTE.

cmod doesgames: Rather zte valet im buying that or hauwei glory do review or someone tell me wich ones better plZ reply or respond plz

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

bmxandmotors1995: valet wins

The Troll: i got my galaxy centura and i love it.i got it 3 days ago. but i only had to pay $30:00 is it because mine is now more older or what

Umberto Amante: The Centura is too easily dropped. It is very slippery...but a faster phone, especially when using Google Voice.

HappyCraftYT: wait so the valet does not have wifi

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.

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

Oh Pkay: The centura freezes alot be aware of that, other than that Nice vid!

DanMetalHead1: I upgraded the SD card in my Valet the very day I got the phone before I left Radioshack. It now has a 16gb SD card instead of a 4gb SD card.

bmxandmotors1995: the zte valet is better because on the Samsung galaxy centra if u crack the screen after a while the screen will completely stop working and wont read your finger any more

Max Boucher: it says in the website that it doesn't come with an sd card

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.

Kathleen Sheeler: Can you tell me if the Valet has spoken GPS navigation? Also does it have the ability for you to speak to it to get information pulled up on the web?

Jorrun: Thanks for helping me make my decision. I will come to you for my next phone,too! :D

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.

ben zuckerman: what is the best tracfone android

Robert Ugarte: I bought two ZTE Valet phones. The first lasted 2 week before it crashed and locked. I bought another ZTE Valet phones and it lasted one week before is crashed and locked. I tried everything I knew to fix it. It worked, I bought the Samsung Centura. It works great.

John Boy: Thanks for the review. You may be one of only a few that can pronounce Valet correctly. Your review had all the information I was needing, real worlds stuff. I have been torn between the 2 phones for a while. You helped me make up my mind, Keep up the good work. 

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?

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.

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

bmxandmotors1995: and for that reason they lowered the price on the Samsung galaxy centura

Teri Orlando: Thanks!! You went right to the things that mattered to me and not wasted my time on frivolous things....like other people have done. I appreciate you taking the time to do this!! It made it easier to buy the phone. Also, that you gave us a hint in your other comparison on which phone was the best all around. Thanks!!

ColeSlugg: Can you do a review on the LG optimus dynamic II for tracfone?

roomforthefiiixins: I've had the Valet for a couple months now. It sucks ass.

dave gale: good review, thanks much. Is there a way to tell which tracfones run on Verizon like these phones do? Thanks Dave

James Fuller: One thing you didn't touch on is how does the phone reception work? Are they both clear? I'm a bit curious how the touch screen works out. On someone else's video I saw, it seemed like the ZTE was a bit unresponsive when he touched the screen.

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??

Jim Bob: I would have liked to have seen some real world comparisons. Opening a browser and loading the homepage. A benchmark to measure internal storage speed. Any benchmark, actually.

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?

xsboost25psi: My wife and I have centuras. Things are TERRIBLE. At first they were ok but long term they have some serious issues. First off, the clock randomly resets itself 5 hours back. I've been on the forums and there seems to be no fix for it. The phone keeps turning the vibrate feature off leaving it on silent. Youtube is constantly crapping out (which wasn't a problem on either of our older phones). I can't speak for the zte but the Cantura is CRAP. Just my personal experience.

warrene93: good review, i am getting my parents their first touch screen and wasnt sure between these 2 phones, after watching the review i decided to get them the zte phone because the zte has flash on the camera and it comes with a 4gb sd card

d0gM3at: With cheap phones like these "beauty" takes a back seat to function and bang for your buck. Which means the ZTE wins this comparison hands down. As for data, well if you can manage to have access to free wifi, at work, at home, school, etc then you'll be pretty much covered and will be able to save your data time for a time and place when it is most useful away from those wifi access points. 

Red Nitro: buy the phones off of amazon the valet is 75 and the centura is 100

toenail37: Can the Android 4.0 operating system be updated to 4.1?

Carroll Winn: Thanks for this video. I have found these phones on Amazon for less than at the Tracfone web site. I have been trying to pick one for an upgrade from LG. Your review helped to highlight their good points and weaknesses. Thanks 

Adam D'Angelo: which one has a better screen resolution?

Mike Crewe: KneelB4Bacon is right. Voice, text and data are ALL treated separately. It's explained further on HSN's web site (where it's currently $79.95 w/ 600 minutes free [Oh.. and triple mins for life]) and Tracfone's. I even called TF to verify. Cool thing is when you buy say.. a 60 minute card.. you get 60 min of voice AND 60 text messages AND 60 MB of data! In other words.. viewing a text message doesn't subtract .5 min of voice like on old Tracfones. A text is a text and only deducts from your text count. BTW.. "data" DOES rollover from month to month, just not the other two. Most people don't realize that a web page (of course.. a downloaded file @ x mb is xmb) is data because they're used to surfing the web at home. Also on older Tracfones that DID have "surfing" capabilities.. you were charged by "time" and not data. Stay on the same web page for 30 min and you just ate up 30 min of talk time as well. It's not the same way with these new Android plans.

52dal: How is the reception when talking on either Samsung or ZTE?

Tex Man: Good review, thanks.

Joanne Spencer: Is the power button flimsy on the ZTE?

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.

angel virgen: How bout app wise

xsboost25psi: What is the ZTE's screen material like? The only thing I like about the Centura is that the screen is pretty scratch resistant. Just wondering if the ZTE's screen is comparable.

xXDarkWolfXx961: So does the valet not run off minutes from tracfone like regular phones from them? And does it matter in my location(Alaska) and what is the messaging like(iphone type?)

SharkmasterD: Wait did i hear jelly bean and icecream sandwich...what?

ItalyHorse45: How are transferred minutes from an old phone added to the Valet? Does it all go on as talk time, or is it some how distributed among all the different categories?
