got old zte axon mini and it's an awesome phone for price of 150E. This new one doesn't seem to be bring much impruvements for the cost of biger size. What do think?
Snapdragon 617 really? Might as well be Mediatek at that point.
625 is the bare minimum at this point for the 14nm power savings at least.
Nice to see ZTE announcing the Axon7 mini...
My question is : will this one even see the light of day ?
I'm asking because it seems that the Axon 7 has turned to be the hugest vaporware of 2016 !
I've seen it in presentation. I even held it in my hands.
I would like to buy it...
But no one sells it !
Not in Europe, neither in China :-(
Why didn't they give this a snapdragon 820 and call this the axon 7 athe 5.5inch one the axon 7 plus and have and the axon 7 mini with the snapdragon 650 and a 4.7 inch screen
username8, 01 Sep 2016It should've been SD625. SD617 is ancient with overheating problemsin mid 2017 6" will be mini lol
xxt, 01 Sep 2016People don't get that mini doesn't stand to size only, mini in this case is in the internals o... morelol it has nothing to do with the internals and everything to do with the dimensions of the device. If it had anything to do with the internals it would make every phone that isn't a flag ship a "mini", which is not the case.
A mini is a phone that is less than 5 inches and closer to 4.7.. which is much more suitable for single handed use by people with smaller hands. A screen size over 5" is not a mini... though it is in relation to the proper Axon, but barely.
xxt, 01 Sep 2016People don't get that mini doesn't stand to size only, mini in this case is in the internals o... morewell yeah the naming is getting everyone confused... but taking ur example... if the mini hamburguer dish had 5 hamburguers (meaning less) would u call it a mini?? just for one less hamburguer, i think ppl expect the "mini" versions to have a lot less and that's why they expect the body to be that minimun (cuz nobody wants 8GB storage and 512 Ram to be the mini)
either way, ZTE can call it a mini and other can prefer call it compact, it doesn't make a difference as long as the one selling understands what u want ;) have a nice day
People don't get that mini doesn't stand to size only, mini in this case is in the internals of the phone, so stop complaining, if you want a compact phone just buy one Xperia Z5 Compact or an iPhone SE.
For example, when I go to Outback Steakhouse, they have a dish that consists in 6 small hamburgers, but they also have a "mini" version of it, the hamburgers aren't smaller, instead it comes with less burgers, only 3.
Why would you make a mini be content with what you have so what if they wanted a smaller phone tell them by another phone you just can't please people they're never satisfied
username8, 01 Sep 2016It should've been SD625. SD617 is ancient with overheating problemsAgree, SD625 is the perfect choice as a proper sibling for SD820
So it is not a mini version then just like all the other so called minis, it is just a mid range phone. A mini is an exact replica of the original just smaller. I accept the drop in screen resolution and perhaps smaller battery but nothing else.
Hate it when companies name their devices 'mini' with their 5.2"... That's normal nowadays !
Call 4.5" mini, i'll get that, 5.0 nothing, and 5.5 phablet. At least, that how it works for me.
lousy trash company that makes crappy devices. don;t be deceived by the price tag and specs on paper. real life usage is horrible, total regrets.
Dumbphone, 01 Sep 2016Mini? They mean Mega. 3.5-4.0" would be mini.Mini as in chipset or configurations :).Plus 3.5 inch screens was used like when ? 2010 lmao.5'2 inch screens are like Common perfect size XD.
