Curious.. My option for a Free Upgrade comes the end of March.. Under a the Standard Plan / 0 Down, contract we have 5 choses to choose from.. We're leaning towards (1) ZTE Grand X Plus (2) Huawei Y6.... Options Appreciated , which would be the better of the Two.. Cheers Thanks

ZTE Grand X plus and Huawei Y6 are identical in most specifications, however, Y6 has higher version of Androind OS ( 5.1 vs 4.4), higher version of bluetooth, but a little smaller battery. 

 

The most important difference of Y6 and GXP is their looks, just pick the one which you prefer for the design, if the looks is not important for you, I'll recommend Y6 for higher version of Android. 

 

Another great option is ZTE Axon for 50$ more with much more better display, CPU, storage, camera and battery.

@AdamBeast Thanks for the Comeback.. The Objective is to stay with the Standard Plan / 0  Down Cellphone.. Hence the 2 Picks against the 5 to choose from..lol..  I have no particular allegence to any one Brand.. For my extremely limited Tech Saviness as long as I can Talk , Text  and Store Contacts and take Pictures, All is Good..  I do not surf the Web with my present C/Phone.. Have an iPad ..lol..
