Anonymous, 28 Feb 2017Did you do a factory reset after the update? Because mine has been pretty lag free so far. Absolutely no problem, including Whatsapp.
Axon 7 User, 28 Feb 2017You don't need to be thrilled, since the software optimization is on the down side. The phone ... moreNormally I don't like useless debates, but mine (US version) works really great, no hiccups. Also, I'm very well surprised by the battery life!
Dabrovski, 28 Feb 2017Actually as a european customer it is terrible. We haven not received Nougat yet, only teasers... moreMy US Axon 7 shows only 4G in Germany, Austria and Czech Republic (but has all EU LTE bands enabled). I'm wondering if an EU version shows LTE.
Thanks in advance.

I had intended to upgrade from the Mini when the Axon 8 comes out,but even the flagship is having lots of problems. Many tech savvy owners of the Axon 7 are unlocking and rooting their phones and running Lineage OS just because of the ineptness of ZTE to get it's software worked out. My Mini has been VERY buggy lately too and if ZTE doesn't work their bugs out of Nougat and release it to the Mini,then I will find a new phone.....hardware is amazing,but the software is almost not worth dealing with.
MiFavor was already 4.2 with the 7.0 update. 7.1 is welcome news. Nothing but pleased with this awesome phone that I picked up on sale for $350.
Mine is rock solid, smooth as butter. For $400 it runs circles around my Sony Z3 and I don't know why the camera gets knocked because I blow up my pictures on a 21" monitor and they stay razor sharp! The Daydream experience is incredible, I did a rollercoaster ride and practically fell out of my chair. I sit in a chair that swivels so I can spin around and see everything. I am extremely impressed with this phone so far, and the one time I called support I got a person who spoke American.
I am experiencing the same issue after the Nougat update with Whatsapp especially when trying to send a photo.
I thought I was the only one. I did not do a reset and I didn't see where this was prescribed. I didn't have any issues before.

Welp there goes Sony's promise to be the first OEM to get 7.1
My tomatoes are ready.
Was so disappointed with the Axon 7. Got it for my wife for Valentine's Day, updated it to Nougat and it was buggy, lagging, and freezing whenever she used Whatsapp. She didn't like the phone at all :( Returned it which is a shame I really wanted her to like it. Oh well.
Except European devices are still on Marshmallow and American ones are plagued with bugs
This is worthy of commendation. Might get one as a backup phone
