Boost Max Phablet Lands on Boost Mobile for $300 Off-Contract

Boost Mobile officially launched the Boost Max today after the off-contract ZTE phablet leaked last week with the prepaid carrier’s branding. The Boost Max is available online for $299.99 and currently comes with a $30 account credit for new customers.

The Boost Max is a perfect copy of ZTE’s Iconic Phablet, which the company unveiled earlier this month at CES 2014. It comes equipped with a 5.7-inch 720p display, a dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, a non-removable 3200mAh battery, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1-megapixel front-facing shooter. It runs Android 4.1 out of the box with ZTE’s Mifavor UI on top. The Boost Max also features an aluminum back panel, giving it a design edge over much of the polycarbonate competition.

Boost Mobile’s latest offering definitely can’t compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 or any other high-end phablets, but at $300 off-contract it should appeal to anyone looking for a big screen without a big price tag to match.
