battery should be larger!!... it would be the perfect phone. too heavy as well
Our Man in Lima, 26 May 2016Looks mighty similar to the Alcatel Idol line with those dual speaker grills - nice looking ph... moreIf this is too big, but you love BIG sound in a small package, then maybe the thinner, smaller, WAY lighter Idol 4? Although... that one is a mid-level tier, while the Axon 7 is a flagship.

Although the HTC M7/8/9 all have terrible screen to body ratios with excessively large Metal regions over the speakers, and the infamously unneeded larger space between the bottom speaker and the screen to house, what?... the HTC logo, maybe? Thanks for wasting real estate on my phone to fit your name in, HTC, smh.
Such waste of space (especially on the sides, imo) is why people didn't tolerate the bezels well, and why I much prefer the much slim metal speaker cover design on the Idol 4/4S... Although, interestingly enough, the Axon 7 has a better screen:body ratio of the HTC One's and the Alcatel Idol 4's, despite it's incredibly similar-to-the-M9's added space between the top and bottom metal grills. Okay, both have larger screens, which always help with the ratio, but still, the larger display helps to create the illusion necessary to diminish the effect of the bezels... (M8@66.7%, M9@68.4%, Idol firstname.lastname@example.org%, Idol 4S@71.9%, Axon email@example.com%)
Also, the HTC 10 doesn't have front facing stereo speakers anymore, and I don't see the resemblance.

I don't understand what the problem is, I like my One M8 just fine :)

Anonymous, 26 May 2016If you re-read the specs you would note that it does in fact have OIS (optical image stabilization)Thanks on that one I stand corrected.nice.
Still, I the quality of HTC 10
It looks good on paper for the specs but the real day to day use is real crap. i expect nothing different from their Axon 7 even that their Axon Elite was just like that. Their Blade S6 too. piece of crap brand.
Specs sound promising, but we'll have to see how ZTE handles updates.
Battery life won't be great but the rest is not bad. If it has a budget flagship price it could be interesting.
Really nice specs but zte branding is a turn-off so in other words, it sucks
The colour variants of this phone turns off, I mean no black colour so sad :/
ithehappykutaahai, 26 May 2016Wow! Now that's a beautiful gorgeous smartphone.Indeed. I love to buy this but I am concerned about software updates. ;(
This is seriously the best looking smartphone after the S7 Edge. WoW
Big screen check
Large storage and Ram check
SD Card support check
Competent camera setup (on paper) check
Dual stereo speakers check
Fingerprint Scanner check
some small negatives
smaller battery than S7 Edge
USB Type C + QC3 probably makes the charger "non USB-Type C" compliant
software support (??)
I wonder how's their international availability is like.
i love their storage options. this beast seems like a real hit. not going to get it though as i have no idea if the zte brand is reliable.
Aqua24, 26 May 2016Wonder why zte phones never achieve the same popularity like huawei and lenovo?Pricing.
Just like Oppo, they are known for their exorbitant prices.

With these specs, it's definately one of the top flagship smartphones of 2016 as of now. I am tempted to make the AXON 7 my next upgrade, or wait & see what LG V10 successor or Huawei Mate 9 has to offer later on in the year.
