MaxXL3.jpgFor an affordable phone, The Max XL comes packed several solid features. Among these, the fingerprint scanner and the 3990 mAh battery has me excited. Why get excited by a fingerprint scanner? Well, besides being able to securely lock and unlock your device, ZTE has designed their fingerprint scanner so that you can quickly launch your favorite app without having to unlock the phone. In addition, you’ll have the ability to save up to 5 different fingerprint profiles. For those thinking of security, especially when purchasing a phone for their child, having multiple fingerprint profiles is the ideal parental control feature. Want to share the phone between multiple users but worried about the phone getting locked out, well now you can rest easy because multiple fingerprints can easily eliminate this concern. As for the battery, that 3990 mAh is massive. For comparison, the battery on the LG G6 is 3300 mAh. Just think of all the talking, texting and videos you can watch with that extra battery size.
