Contest: Win a ZTE Grand X 2 [Update: Winner selected!]

Update: Congratulations to Twitter user @jmaginarynumber for winning the contest! Stay tuned for more over the next few days!

When a device doesn’t cost a whole lot, it’s often assumed to be lacking in something fundamental.

But ZTE’s new Grand X 2 is both high-quality and high-performance. Want to test that theory? Enter our contest to win one.

So what does the ZTE Grand X 2 offer? It has a large, bright 5-inch 720p display, a 64-bit 1.2Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, an 8MP rear camera with 1080p video support, a 2MP front-facing shooter, and a 2,480mAh battery, all running Android 5.1 Lollipop. Pretty good specs for a phone that normally costs $149.99 outright.

This contest is a bit different, because in return for the chance to win ZTE’s newest phone, we want something from you. To win, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and leave a comment below telling us your favourite financial life hack — in other words, your best money-saving tip.

A winner will be selected on Sunday, August 22nd! Contest is open to Canadians only, sorry!

The phone is available at Bell and Virgin Mobile, but this one is unlocked and can be used on Rogers, Bell, Telus or any of their subsidiaries. It will not work on Wind, Videotron or Mobilicity.
