Sprint hasn’t been releasing many new handsets lately, mostly due to the fact that they’re transitioning from WiMax to LTE. That means that any new handsets is good news for subscribers, and the ZTE Fury is next in line. For anyone looking for a phone that features killer specs and the latest version of Android, this is not the handset for you. Move along, we won’t tell anybody. For anyone sticking around, this phone could be the cheap phone you’ve been waiting for.
Included is a 3.5-inch display, 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 5MP camera and 4GB of internal storage. Android should be smooth on it, but by far not the best experience available. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the OS version of choice, already making the handset outdated before it’s even released. On top of that is Sprint ID, the excuse Sprint uses for bloatware. While all rumored, pricing appears to be only $19.99 after $50 mail-in rebate. Off contract it’s only $219.99, making it a great option for a cheap backup phone. Who’s excited for the Fury? Does Spring need more modern Android handsets? Let us know in the comments!
