ZTE Warp vs LG Marquee – compare best Boost Mobile Android phones
It’s always risky to state which phone is better since one can never guess what user might want out of the phone. Boost Mobile did a great job in recent months adding quite a few Android handsets that give users a choice in price as well as features. However, since today is the day of LG Marquee launch, seems like a good idea to compare two of the best Boost Mobile Android phones, ZTE Warp vs LG Marquee.
Many indecisive users might wondering if LG Marquee is worth of upgrading from ZTE Warp or which one to choose in case of choosing between these two handsets for the first time. If price is not an issue since the difference in price is $80, than let’s see how ZTE Warp vs LG Marquee compare to each other.
Two best Boost Mobile Android phones are similar in many aspects but also have their advantages and disadvantages when compared. They both use 1GHz single-core processor, RAM 512 MB and Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform. Both are fast, snappy and responsive but ZTE Warp has faster web browser and more internal memory (4GB of internal memory with over 3GB available to users while Marquee has only 2GB) for storing more pictures, music and videos.
On the other hand, the reason for LG Marquee being the $80 pricier phone than Warp is faster data transfer due to better WiFi and more recent Bluetooth. Also, it features WiFi hotspot capabilities for connecting other WiFi devices to Internet.
The feature that can influence choosing one phone over another is the size of the display. In this run wins ZTE Warp, which features a 4.3-inch display while LG Marquee’s screen is only 4-inch. However, Marquee features NOVA capacitive touchscreen (more sensitive to the touch than Warp’s resistant), which provides more vivid, vibrant and sharp display but in my opinion, the turning point for many could be the size of display, not the quality.
Except for the screen size, the quality construction is also quite noticeable. ZTE Warp has more of a plastic cheap feel while LG Marquee is all classy, sleek design. However, in practice, Warp’s rippled texture on the back provides user with feel that it won’t go anywhere out of hand accidentally while with Marquee, can’t be certain. At least Marquee is smaller, lighter and thinner so easier to handle in overall, even thought larger display wouldn’t bother anyone.
Camera wise, in ZTE Warp vs LG Marquee battle, definitely LG Marquee wins. That’s not because it has a better rear camera, in fact, both phones have 5-megapixel camera with flashes. It can capture 720p video that Warp cannot but the main reason that users might go for Marquee instead of ZTE Warp is a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Not having one built-in in the phone nowadays can really disappoint many users. Before Marquee showed up (available from today), front-facing camera was available at Transform Ultra, so that and slide-out QWERTY keyboard were the key reasons for choosing Ultra.
Even after comparing ZTE Warp vs LG Marquee, it cannot be stated which phone is better. Some might not even consider the phone without front facing camera while some may think that it’s not worth additional $80 and go for Transform Ultra (it has front camera but much lower specs). The largest display possible is for many users crucial feature so it all comes to personal preferences. Important thing is that no matter which phone is the chosen one, users will benefit from Boost Mobile’s $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan that wouldn’t be that much spectacular without Shrinkage plan. Shrinkage plan lowers monthly bill to as low as $40 for unlimited service after 18 on-time payments. As of today look up for the LG Marquee if that is the phone you like or go and get ZTE Warp if it meets your needs.
