Got this phone when my Note 4's eMMC chip started to go (typical Samsung problem with all of their phones). Pretty happy with it, not quite jack-of-all-trades as Note 4 (no IR blaster, stylus, replaceable battery) but for the price and specs(SD820, Adreno 530, microSD slot, 2k WQHD AMOLED screen, stereo speakers, all the bands I needed for T-mobile(now has wifi calling in newest update as well)) it is really good value ($340 in January). Also very fast OS updates, compared to Samsung. Camera gotten a bit better with 7.1.1 but I would agree that it wouldn't hurt to get an improvement in that department. Ironically the sensor in the camera is Samsung made...
Not available here in the UAE. This is a good alternative to the One Plus 3 which does not storage expansion
Not as good as the $100 price drop on the other Chinese fauxships.
Axonite, 18 Apr 2017One big minus- The camera/video quality is very poor in this phone.The 20MP camera does no jus... moreThe camera has poor performance only with low light. Else, Axon 7 has an excellent camera.
AnonD-510098, 18 Apr 2017Axon 8 needs bigger battery, better camera and smaller bezelsYou almost said it all my friend, I absolutely agree with your 3 points.
Great value for money flagship killer, excellent cost-to-performance phone, and now even better. But hopefully there will be an Axon 8 as well, with the SD835 and 6GB RAM, etc. And not just an Axon 7s with the SD821.
One big minus- The camera/video quality is very poor in this phone.The 20MP camera does no justice to the shots taken by it. I also wish they increase the battery capacity in the upcoming model as it now supports Google Day dream VR. Talking about sound clarity and other features, This phone is a gem.
