ZTE Axon Elite review: Unlock this phone with eyes, voice or finger


ZTE takes security to the next level with the Axon Elite smartphone, a 4G phablet you can unlock with your eyes, voice or finger.

The ZTE Axon Elite has great specs and some interesting tech at an excellent price, but while we appreciate many users will love the design we aren't entirely taken by it - especially the fake-leather parts on the rear. If you can't get the OnePlus 2,...

ZTE Axon Elite


I'm a little bit confused by the ZTE Axon line. Mostly because there seem to be lots of models floating about with features reserved for certain regions. A US version got a release earlier in the year, to fairly positive reviews, while there's also a...

ZTE Axon Elite Smartphone Review


Flagship with some issues. The ZTE Axon Elite is the current flagship device from the Chinese manufacturer in the European market. At a first glance, it ticks all the right boxes with 4K video recording, fingerprint scanner and a very powerful...

good build quality, bright display, fast SoC, sufficient memory, microSD, dual-SIM, 4K video recordings

ZTE Axon Elite


The Axon Elite is ZTE's latest entry in the Axon line of GSM unlocked Android smartphones with fairly high end specs. The phone runs Android 5.0.2 with ZTE's MiFavor 3.2 UI on the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 CPU with Adreno 430 graphics. It has 3...

Fast performance with Snapdragon 810, very good cameras, facial recognition that actually works pretty well. Unlocked for use with any GSM carrier

Tacky gold paint job, unpleasant custom UI

The ZTE Axon Elite is priced higher than the US version of the 32 gig Axon and Axon Pro. For US buyers it's hard to recommend the Elite given the unpleasant MiFavor UI and slightly older Android OS version. More importantly, the US versions net you LTE...
