Both smartphones are unlocked and cost less than others in their class, run on GSM networks

Sprint began selling the Vital smartphone from ZTE in June for $99.99 after rebate and with a two-year service agreement. It also runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and has a 13-megapixel rear camera but runs a slightly less powerful 1.5 GHz dual-core processor.

Sprint boasted that Vital had little bloatware, making it closer to what Android is intended to be. In general, analysts view ZTE smartphones as being closer to pure Android than other manufacturers' smartphones that run Android with special software overlays.
