Although this phone’s debut price at the time of launch was $250, but soon it came down to $200 almost unexpectedly. Speculations are that the company didn’t get the kind of response they expected. Good part is that phone does not have a cheap look and customer response is nothing less than appreciative till now. Apart from one major observation (camera response average), the ZTE Warp stands good in every aspect.
