ZTE’s dual-screen Axon M is fascinating and flawed


This $725 AT&T exclusive proves two screens aren't always better than one.

The Axon M flips the 'flip phone' on its head


Packing two displays that fold out into a mini-tablet, the Axon M is an interesting curiosity.

The ZTE Axon M's two displays lend more real estate for viewing videos and double as a kickstand. It has a convenient quick-launch key and a headphone jack, and its camera takes great daytime shots.

The phone is heavy and has an uneven, cumbersome design. It's pricey for year-old specs and the black hinge down the middle of the display is irritating in full-screen.

The ZTE Axon M has a heavy and awkward design that's genuinely useful for gaming and multitasking. But if you're not down to go double, spend your money on either a top-tier phone, or a cheaper phone with the same specs as the Axon M.

ZTE Axon M review: double trouble


When one plus one isn't two

Extra screen software works as advertised ; Solid unibody metal design ; 3.5mm headphone jack

Expensive price for last year’s hardware ; Second screen doesn’t add much ; Camera placement is quirky

But if the Axon M is the first dual-screen phone that can actually execute the idea of a two-screened device, using it in practice has me doubting whether the idea actually has practical merit. It is cool, on a purely technical level, to be able to...

ZTE Axon M


The ZTE Axon M for AT&T has a unique design that folds out to reveal a second display, effectively transforming the phone into a small tablet, but there are some kinks to work out.

Unique dual-screen design. Screens can be mirrored or extended for better multimedia and productivity. Smooth performance. Solid battery life.

Some software bugs. Distracting middle seam. Only one camera sensor. Bulky when folded.

At $725, the Axon M is priced similarly to the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8, but nearly $200 less than the Note 8. The thing to understand about the Axon M is that it isn't intended to be a flagship phone or a successor to the Axon 7. It's a niche phone...

ZTE Axon M Smartphone Review


Will that work? ZTE delivers the first "foldable" smartphone. While we would have imagined something else, the statement is right in principle. With its two displays and hinge in between, the Axon M reminds us a little of the old Nokia Communicator,...

two screens with various display modes ; camera with many adjustment settings ; excellent speakers

low battery life ; expensive ; low display brightness ; bad WLAN (in the pre-production model)

The ZTE Axon M is not just any smartphone. If you consider the hardware equipment and its performance in the benchmarks, the device should not cost more than 300 Euros (~$370). However, with the second screen, the phone receives a unique feature for...

ZTE foldable smartphone looks like Samsung Galaxy Fold | LetsGoDigital


ZTE patents a foldable phone with a flexible display. The smartphone unfolds into a tablet and sports a dual-camera on the rear.

ZTE dual-sided smartphone | LetsGoDigital


ZTE patents a dual-sided smartphone with a pretty similar design as the Nubia X, from former-subsidiary Nubia. ZTE seems to follow the same footsteps.

ZTE Axon M Review


The ZTE Axon M is basically, a foldable dual-screen Android smartphone with two 5.2-inch displays held together by a hinge. Is the Axon M a multimedia and multitasking powerhouse, or is its dual-screen design mostly a gimmick?

Two screens are better than one for multitasking ; Loud dual-speaker setup for calls and media consumption ; SD821 and 4GB RAM deliver their typically fast performance

Ergonomic nightmare ; UI needs refinement in transitioning between screen modes ; Poor camera performance ; Extremely obtrusive black bar between screens in extended mode ; Most apps will only work in portrait mode when extended ; Poor fingerprint...

AT&T ZTE Axon M review: A unique dual screen phone optimized for multi-tasking


I've been using handheld devices for more than 20 years and during the days of PDAs and early smartphones, we regularly saw unique form factors. For the last couple of years, it seems most phones were defined as "black slabs". ZTE decided to mix things...

Dual screen can be useful for productivity ; High quality fit and finish ; Standard headphone jack

Phone is thick ; Older processor for $725 price

Review: ZTE Axon M for AT&T


The Axon M is an entirely unique handset in today's market of slim slates. This dual-screened smartphone unfolds to create a large, tablet-sized display for multitasking and enjoying video on a wider canvas. ZTE's latest Android smartphone is nothing...

The ZTE Axon M is a curious beast of a phone. There's no question ZTE attempted to pull off something ambitious here, and yet I don't think it quite succeeded.
