Hands on: ZTE Axon Elite review

 

Ever wanted to unlock you phone with your eyes? Now you can.

Eye scanning tech ; Powerful camera ; Quick charge

Ugly rear, chunky design ; Doesn't feel premium ; Childish UI

ZTE Axon Review: In Depth

 

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 books.DesignTriangles, there's no doubt…

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.

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

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 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...

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.

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 M Review: This Foldable Phone Falls Flat

 

I may have had my reservations about the Axon M, but it was a device I wanted to love. ZTE is taking a big gamble, designing a phone that other companies have been too hesitant to take on. Unfortunately, the device ends up being a gimmick that...

Durable aluminum hinge ; Headphone jack ; Ability to run two apps at once

Disappointing camera ; Subpar battery life ; Second screen can cause performance issues ; Hinge ruins your ability to use both displays for one app

ZTE's dual-screen folding smartphone looks, runs and feels like nothing else on the market. But when it comes to smartphones, more isn't always better.

ZTE Axon M Hands-on: Are We Ready for Foldable Phones?

 

The ZTE Axon M unfolds to give you two 5.2-inch screens you can use in multiple modes, but the bezels are big and it packs last year's CPU.
