ZTE Tempo X is an affordable all-day Android Nougat phone

There is a lot of media focus, unsurprisingly, on top of the line smartphones that have now almost reached four-digit prices. Not everyone, however, needs all the bells and whistles those expensive devices offer. Even fewer will actually be able to afford them. Some need a simple, serviceable communication device that gets the job done with little fuss and won’t die on you half way through the day. If you’re a Boost Mobile subscriber, you’re in luck because ZTE just launched the Tempo X exactly for that purpose.

Boost Mobile just tweaked the way it handles taxes and fees
