I had an Axon 7 but I sold it and bought a Galaxy S8. I love the Galaxy S8 (except for the terrible location and size of the fingerprint scanner) but I missed the Axon 7. I finally convinced myself that I needed a backup phone and I bought a used Axon 7. The S8 will continue to be my daily driver, but the Axon 7 has replaced my 8" Samsung Galaxy Tab S2.

This phone has a serious issue with the camera giving a blurred image while the phone vibrates.
ZTE have ignored this issue.
Check google and see for yourself.

not sure ZTE india will provide support to this phone. If you don't break this phone accidentally otherwise there should be no issues, just keep software up to date, using for an year. Read my year experience in separate port for few tips.
vicky28, 11 Jul 2017I'm in India, How do I buy this phoneUnfortunately not being officially sold in India yet, though you can ask any of your friend from US/UK to get it. Good thing it supports both India's 4g/LTE Bands i.e. 1800 & 2300.
Jordan 1178, 08 Jul 2017I've done this several times still nothing Updates are huge like ~700MB they won't happen unless you have proper wifi connection,
I suppose thats not the issue.
HermitCrab64, 06 Jun 2017Hi, recently bought ZTE AXON 7,I love the speakers, design,bit slippery. Anyway to the point, ... moreI am using for almost a year now, never had any reboot or Screen Freezes ever.
I hope you have done routine system update and bought phone from authorized sellers in USA i.e. Amazon, NewEgg, bhphotovideo or BestBuy.
Jordan 1178, 28 Jun 2017I live in the UK, iIpurchased this phone end of December,I haven't had any updates whatsoever,... moreMine is on 7.1.1 (Naugat). I got the OTA update in US unlocked version. If you have good wifi connection go to settings try "System Update" or else other wise you should get downloadable update on ZTE support website.
Ching, 25 Jun 2017Is there any way to enable On-screen navigation button? ThxNavigation Keys are there , you can choose to invert Back/ClearApps from settings.
I have been using Axon 7 now for almost a year, got mine from NewEgg.com with free HeadPhone (Really good ones). Since I pre-booked in early day had to go for Golden... though would have preferred Grey one.
So long this has been the best Smartphone I ever had no complains at all, every penny worth.
Below I am putting Key Highlights :
a) Excellent Quad HD Screen.
b) Extremely good looking, lightweight and sturdy body phones with Small Bezels (Compact); I had some rare slips, though its solid enough to withstand drops from 2-4 Feet without any Scars easily.
c) Excellent Battery Backup mine easily go over 1 day.
Use Battery Cooling & set policies for App to prevent from running in Background unnecessary. To me it don't make any sense to allow Apps other than WhatsApp,FB,mails and any fitness App to run in background. If I need them I will open them. So set policy to NOT ALLOW them to automatically run.
d) Great Camera, no doubt most Smartphone today have really good cameras especially in good Daylight. This one is Good even in Low Light.
Tip) Especially in dark give few sec to focus then Click, don't hurry. Extra care for steady Hands during dark times.
Yes Camera App can be improved, few modes like Trail...night Exposure don't work for me.
HDR and Live Photos are best for me.
e) Allows you to choose from Stock Android or ZTE MiFavor. Cool feature added inbuilt to UI like Pedometer on Lock Screen, U can search for in Apps & SMS, Gesture control like Flip to mute Calls, Shake to open Torch etc .... &inbuilt contact Blacklisting without 3rd party app, Time based profile (like I have set Not to be disturbed at night unless known numbers).
f) Fast Charging is probably the best feature jumps battery from say 7-8 percent to around 30% in just 10 mins. Overall Battery backup very good even after a year, just need some management as told above.
g) Performance butter smooth, Actually not a question or thing to highlight even u have such high Hardware specs i.e. SD 820 ......its obvious.
h) Regular updates, first few phones to get Day dream in Thousands of phones in market.
h) Only slight drawback common with Metal uni-body phones is occasional heating. especially if you active on phone while charging.
i) Got a good screen protector and Silcone cover with phone, after 10 month i decided to replace screen protector but unfortunately didn't get a good one like original on Amazon, quite shorter on sides especially.
Going good hope to continue with same phone for at least another one year, thanks to metal uni-body no color fading or scratched .... good as new.
Since mid of February I'm using this phone until now my sim card spoiled for twice...
No option for blocking incoming calls.. I want shared files can't using other apps but using it's own apps can't download the app for other phone... So disappointed...
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2017If this phone did not have a hybrid sim card slot i would have definitely taken itYou can take the SIM chip off and put it below the SD card, and you get 2 SIMs + SD... there's even a guide for that!
ZTE AXON 7 the best quality/price ratio on the smartphone market by far. The best smartphone I have ever had! Very happy with it.
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2017If this phone did not have a hybrid sim card slot i would have definitely taken itThe standard SIM card in market for A2017G is 4FF nano-SIM, so, if your SIM card is not 4FF, please contact your carrier and ask them replace SIM card for you, then you can have 4FF SIM card.
