I have got this phone about half year..from the beginning it has an issue with google hang up..since then lots of problem like freezin in apps heat up and slow...after factory reset was working ok for about 2weeks and start again.keep switching of and on by itself(restarting).and the outer body is not so brilliant..very week and bending easy.i end up smashing the phone and never buy another octacore again
This phone Is a great phone. It Is nota that pricy but ir has great performance. And it does not heat up at all. Even having the sd810. Great phone i just wish ir has an SD slot.
I just recently acquired the axon pro..i had a Galaxy S6,that I wasn't happy with(over heating, slow)..i must say the axon is by far the best phone I've used..ive had LG,Motorola and Samsung flagships and the axon has out preformed them all!! My only complaint is the lack of a second screen,while using apps
Don't buy this phone if you live in Canada, an outfit called 'DF Computers' in Ontario handles the warranty, my phone failed after 40 days use. Dealing with 'DF Computers' has been a real challenge and they don't care about customer service, acceptable communication or fast service.
I paid $650 to them for the "Premium phone replacement service". That was two weeks ago. They still haven't even shipped a replacement yet...
Best bang for my bucks. Above average specs for its price point. Sleek metal body; 4 GB Ram and 64 GB of storage, even without an sd slot; above average dual rear facing cameras and flash; and a nice Dolby system was a steal for $285. Side by side comparisons of big name phones with similiar specs made for a truly no brainer purchase. Big name phones with similar specs exceeded the Axon Pro by at least $150 or more. Purchased after an Idol 3 5.5 OTA update removed Band 12 LTE acccess for T-Mobile customers. At $285 not expecting perfection. But absolutely amazed by what my $285 netted.
Leo, 11 Oct 2016You can't describe it better, congratulations! Not even a 3 star review in my opinion There are significant glitches with this phone? I have had a ZTE zmax for 2 years now and only now is it demanding replacement.
I just want to know if the processor and graphics are decent for 2016 apps.

Quite a good phone, but large and rather heavy. The design's not that great, either.

What could have been here is A top of the line smartphone that could compete when anyone. With the software glitches, Bluetooth and wifi connectivity issues and lack of true updates outside of their glitchy website, this phone is a pretender. The sound is amazing and the build, aluminum, helps me give this a three star.
Don't expect Samsung, LG, or Motorola quality.
This is my main driver for a month. I'll never go back to Samsung. Zte axon pro is $400, dual cameras up front with incredible manual control results, best in class Dolby earphone audio bests every phone on the market without any doubt whatsoever, 64gb, 4 ram, near vanilla Android but a better use of keeping apps ready in ram by far, super fast cpu, just an incredible phone. Downsides: No removable battery, no SD card slot, no fingerprint security. And I'd prefer it to be 7 inches or at least 6. Whatever. I vowed never to be buy a phone without battery swapping and I wish this one had that option. But I honestly am 100 percent positive I'm done with Samsung, seeing how zte can give us a powerhouse phone at $400 while Samsung keeps playing games with power users at high costs. The minute zte puts out a 7-incher with these specs, I'll buy that thing too. I can't believe how good this phone is.
I have this phone and my friend has a OnePlus 2, I compared them side by side and found that this phone is distinctly better than OnePlus 2.
This phone surely has that dreaded Snapdragon 810 processor but I don't know how but somehow ZTE has managed to tame the super hot beast (literally).
On OnePlus 2 the snapdragon 810 heats up like a frying pan but on this phone I hardly feel any heat, the screen quality of this phone is excellent and the camera clarity is great. And the best part unlike their weirdly heavy Nubia Z9 (seriously I still can't understand how a 5.2 inch device weigh 192 g) this phone is indeed easy to hold, the curved back provides nice grip.
Great job ZTE.
Great phone, use it for work everyday, do email, photos, downloads, print from it, works great no lag. Good voice/sound quality, beautiful display, no problem with heat playing Real Racer 3, for example. No SD slot is bummer, but for me good. Ive had lesser quality cheap ZTE phones in the past-they never gave me any problems. I basically got it for less than $200 from Amazon Warehouse (open box, but pristine condition), so worth it.
Maddy, 31 Jul 2015ummm brother, "huawei" is the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world; not ZTE.Yes it is the 3rd. Go and do some research
I have a Galaxy S6 and my wife had an iPhone 5. She wanted the latest iPhone 6S Plus, but Apple overprices their devices as usual. So, I convinced her to give Android a try (she has never owned an Android handset).
We got the ZTE Axon Pro last week and it has been awesome so far! Totally spanks the iPhone 6S on all accounts except for maybe camera quality. This doesn't mean the camera in the Axon Pro is badÂ—it is still solidÂ—but iPhones always have an exceptional camera that is tough to compete with for some reason.
The battery life is surprisingly good for how large and powerful this phone is. It easily lasts a full day with normal mixed usage. My Galaxy S6 battery life is a total joke in comparison. In fact, I've decided to sell my GS6 and get one of the Axon models instead. Axon Pro is the best-kept secret in Android (in 2015) because so many people either ignore ZTE or fall into marketing spells from the bigger names. This is a flagship device with top-notch specs, reliability, good battery life, and 2-years warranty (plus free accidental damage protection) for $350 (plus taxes). Mind you, we paid that amount for the 64GB version! No other phone comes close to the Axon Pro at that price or even for several hundred dollars more.
This is a great phone for my needs.
No carrier Bloatware only two apps that are from ZTE which can easily be disabled and are non intrusive (exercise apps), Android 5.1.1, 32 GB Rom, 4 GB Ram
It transitions smoothly and apps accessible immediately.
The camera takes great pictures and has depth as the camera is dual 13MP and 2MP with high 4K resolution and HDR capture capabilities.
only thing that I notice that can be an issue is temperature as it does heat up periodically with multiple apps open. I circumvent this by utilizing the built in task manager to close recently opened windows and cooler master set to advanced to kill running processes of certain apps. it cools down rather fast and there is no lag. Even when it heats up there is no lag. There was a report of the battery exploding but that is on a different phone and a true one off. This phone is a great value. On a side note I have not had to root the phone to customize as it fits my style out the box.
