A fantastic looking phone with great specs. For me, it is only the weight (185 grams) that is a negative. No 5.5 inch phone should weigh more than 160 grams. The Huawei Mate 8, a 6 inch phone is also 185 grams, very light for that size - it also has a heavier battery - 4000 mAh. The LG G3 was lighter than average for a 5.5 inch device at only 149 grams, although made of plastic which is lighter than metal. Anyway, compactness is important to me and I would hesitate before buying a 5.5 inch phone as heavy as the Axon 7.
This phone would be very exciting as other pgones in the axon series have been. Big thing is that it has a 20mp camera with f1.8 aperture which looks better yhan lg g5 which has 16mp f1.8 aperture . Powered with the kryo sd 820 it will have no issues as far as performance is concerned. At last the 6gb ram would steal the show. This phone is capable of competeing with htc, samsung ,etc.
Sinsofmobiles, 29 May 2016My only concern is how updates will be initiated for this device if it's availability is only ... moreUpdates are handled way better when carriers are not involved. If you buy this phone or any unlocked phone (like a Nexus) updates are pushed through OEM not the retail you bought it from
My only concern is how updates will be initiated for this device if it's availability is only though retail let's not carries.
I agree! I would even talk about updates when they come. Some chinese oem update their devices one time only and then people are crying for updates lol. Anything for less than $500 besides nexus phones barely gets updated
Will we be able to use custom ROMs on that phone? Does it have unlocked bootloader like the Oneplus phones?
why some people bragging about quadcore? this is sd 820, not some low architechture octacore processor
Cpt. Power, 28 May 2016What a PHONE and only double dual core. and 31400 mAh. Rest of specs looks awesome. Big h... moreIt has the snapdragon 820 which is the most powerfull chipset on the market and btw its quad core...you really shouldnt worry about the performance.
Anonymous, 28 May 2016No its two dual core. It's uses arrangement that is known as big.LITTLE. Same as how are octo ... moreThen why noone (except you)would call an octa core soc two quad core? And what would you call helio x20? Dualquadonedouble core?
Does it have 4 cores? Yes it does. Then its quad core,case closed.
Edy1, 28 May 2016Phone arena says the speakers are not stereo but just one earpiece and one loudspeaker !! ... moreNo they don't. phone arena, like everyone else, say its dual speaker. But nobody said its stereo.
Anonymous, 28 May 2016and Android Authority says they are dual stereo speakers. calm down and just wait, dude...
t... moreHi-fi processors, not one but two processors...
Dolby Atmos (suport not onky 7.1 but multi sound speakers !! N.M systems where you can have N speakers and M subwoofers )
not a simple Dobly digital (stereo or 5.1 systems)
And for what???
one single mono speaker (or dual mono!!? because they even don't say) !!!
How stupid is that????
The level of stupidity of smartphones makers amazing me !

that aside, even if it's indeed just a mono speaker, i'm pretty sure you still benefit from the hi-fi audio processor when using headphones. if you value sound quality you're gonna use headphones anyway, with or without dedicated audio processor...
- Dolby Atmos
Google Daydream support
musaioso, 27 May 2016StereoPhone arena says the speakers are not stereo but just one earpiece and one loudspeaker !!
So this "amazing" phone it's A BIG LIE !!
It have this sound processors, Dolby atmos technology but ONE STUPID MONO speaker !!
I am so disappointed !
Lenovo Vibe X3 it has true stereo speakers at least.
[deleted post]looks really good so far. there are just 2 things that bothered me there. first, the parts above and below the antenna lines looked like plastic at times, although they seemed to be metal at others. so i guess that's just the lighting?
but that aside, the rather protruding camera lens... around 1:50 it even looks like they scratched it, but it's probably just smudged. i'd still feel uneasy about resting it on a desk or some other solid surface, though. and i don't like using cases because metal bodies are so pleasant to hold
Alien , 27 May 2016Same here. I would never buy a chinese phone. People look at the specs and think it is good. W... moreThe zte seems to tick most of those boxes, it provides warranty for example.
The quality seems a lot Kore solid than the mi5, but just as we saw the quality of the mi5 through reviews and such, we will eventually see the same for this one.
