ZTE Axon review

 

ZTE's Axon proves premium and value truly can go together.

The Axon isn’t a perfect phone, or even a perfect mid-range phone, but it’s got a lot going for it anyway. Describing it as ‘premium value’ is accurate. The build and materials used should be considered premium, and for $330 unlocked, it’s hard to...

The $329 ZTE Axon mimics ZTE's best, for less (hands-on)

 

A budget take on ZTE's flagship smartphone.

ZTE Axon ( Phthalo Blue)

 

But with the Axon Pro, its inaugural flagship device, I stand corrected. Sporting a Snapdragon 810 processor, a sharp 1440p display and a dual rear-facing camera, the unlocked handset boasts powerful specs at an ultracompetitive $500 price. (Especially...

The competitively priced ZTE Axon Pro has a crisp display and a stylish design, and its capable dual rear camera comes packed with useful photo tools.

The phone's call volume is low and its battery life is unexceptional.

The ZTE Axon Pro is powerful, stylish and inexpensive, but the OnePlus 2 has a lower price and more compelling features.

ZTE Axon 7 review

 

The Axon 7 leads the way in terms of affordable flagships and aside from one drawback, delivers in every department. ZTE scores another first with an excellent smartphone that's compatible with all major US networks. With the Axon 7, ZTE raises the bar...

ZTE Axon review: Can it compete with other affordable flagships?

 

The ZTE Axon is a hard sell. Not because it doesn't look nice, or because it doesn't have flagship specs. In fact, the price is actually quite compelling for what you get. But people just don't know the brand, which means competing handsets from...

Jon approached this the same way he would in any review; he shares thoughts on design, experience, battery, camera and value. Do all of those categories combine to justify a phone that’s $450? Watch the video to find out.

The $329 ZTE Axon mimics ZTE's best, for less (hands-on)

 

The ZTE Axon is an entry-level take on ZTE's Axon Pro, but you'd be hard pressed to spot the difference. They share the same chassis and just about all of the same hardware -- the budget variant skimps on processor speed and resolution, but dials the...

The playing field remains crowded. The recently announced OnePlus X offers dual-SIM card slots, support for up to 128GB microSD cards to supplement the meager 16GB of storage, and 3GB of RAM. That makes it rather competitive on the specifications...

ZTE Axon Review: For a Chinese smartphone maker who, for the longest time built conservative carrier-branded affordable handsets, the Axon is a turnout for the...

Good screen ; Competent cameras ; Aluminium body ; Customisable UI

Bulky ; Styling quirks ; Underwhelming battery life

So how did the ZTE do in bringing its first truly competitive flagship to western markets? Pretty well by our estimations..

Review: ZTE AXON

 

ZTE's Axon isn't just a beast in budget sheep's clothing, it is one of the truly delightful smartphones to come to market in Canada this year. The directive was simple, ‘build an affordable smartphone with flagship features,” and ZTE has delivered on...

It’s a novel idea that’s pushed by the Axon having its very own ‘Bokeh’ setting. There are other notable settings worth playing with like multiple exposure, fisheye and various effects that really extend the range of photos you can take and share.
