ZTE Stratos Z819C is a 5-inch Smartphone that comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop, ready to personalize to fit your life. It's a fast device with an incredibly long battery life that won't quit until you are ready. The ZTE Stratos Z819C is an affordable device to add to your possession, and you will love it, especially for the amazing wireless plans from Straight Talk and Net10. I have had my hands on the ZTE Stratos Z819C from Straight Talk with tons of features, and it has served me during exciting moments.



Pealing the ZTE Stratos Z819C box reveals the 5-inch device. Other items in the box include a wall adapter, a USB cable, manuals and other Straight Talk instructions, and an activation code.



The ZTE Stratos Z819C is a 5-inch device with well-rounded corners. At the back, we have a 5 MP camera with a LED flash just below it. We also have the speaker at the bottom right of the back cover. The cover is made of plastic and is also removable. Taking off the rear cover will reveal the battery, the SIM slot, and microSD card slot.

Coming to the front, we have a 5-inch display. There’s a 2 MP camera at the upper part of the screen. We have cryptic navigation buttons at the lower part of the screen; the right most being the recent apps button, at the center we have the home button, and the left most is the back button.

To the right side of the device is the power button. The volume buttons are on the left side of the device.
Coming to the top, we have the headphone jack and a noise cancellation mic. At the bottom side of the device is your mic, and a micro USB port which functions as the charging port and also where you can insert a USB cable to transfer data between your phone and computer.



ZTE Stratos Z819C comes with a powerful 5 MP camera. It also has a 2 MP front camera for taking selfies. The camera has several great features in Pro mode such as panorama. It takes good photos as I was able to view from its screen.



It has a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels which is good for viewing 780p videos. Photos show up clearly on this device. I was able to enjoy watching some movies on the phone, and the whole experience was good.



The ZTE Stratos Z819C comes with a powerful 2300mAh battery. One thing that impressed me is how this phone would stay for hours without requiring me to find a charging outlet. I usually consider the battery life of a phone before buying, and the ZTE Stratos Z819C totally proved it. It has a talk time of 15 hours and a standby time of 7 days. You can have a call for close to 15 hours, just on battery. This is great for a mid-level phone.



Internal Storage capacity on the ZTE Stratos Z819C is 8GB. You can download lots of apps from Google Playstore and save them on your phone. It also has a microSD slot which you can use to upgrade the storage up to 32 GB with an external memory card.



The performance of the ZTE Stratos Z819C is quite impressive. It has a powerful Quad-core processor running at 1.2GHz. Onboard is 1GB of RAM, which, combined with the processor makes performance of the device good.

Out of the box, it comes loaded with Android 5.1 Lollipop which has attractive user interfaces. Animations show up quite fine thanks to the Lollipop version and the powerful processor. I was able to install a few games which played well and also the graphics were quite okay for a mid-range device. The phone also comes with several apps ready for use.

It has 4G LTE; browsing is super-fast when operating within your data plan of Straight Talk or Net10 Wireless plans. I will explain more on these wireless plans in this review.
Connectivity features of the phone include Bluetooth 4.0. It has Wi-Fi capability. GPS is also available for navigation on Google maps and other location apps.
