No fm radio is unforgivable as it has to be disabled, why do cheap phones leave it on but as soon as you're into $400 territory they disable it.
Most probably the ZTE Axon 7 is the most value for money phone/phablet of 2016, & probably even more. And considering that it includes much of the high end specs for the low price of just $399 or so, it is the true flagship killer

naveenleo, 28 Oct 2016Sibling of Lenovo Vibe X3. been using Vibe, other than a poor non-wide angle front cam no chan... moreNo, it's not, the Vibe X3 has Snapdragon 808 while the ZTE has Snapdragon 820. Huge difference.
This review confuses me. I had this phone for a month. The audio was fantastic through headphones but I sent it back because the camera was terrible. The reviewer has the opposite view, bigging up the camera and dissing the audio.
Just look at the studio samples to see how soft and washed out the pictures are. That softness is absolutely present in every picture you take and it doesn't matter how much work you do with manual mode, the optics are just bad.
If you don't care about the camera, this phone is fantastic: great battery, manageable size, lovely screen and breathtaking audio through the headphone jack. If like me you need to use a camera quite often, it's not an option.
What a shame.
phone is ok. big problem with software. camera not that good as Expected, dont even try to do picture in night , day time - picture only good.
Weak Coverage Signal Performance (ZTE ARE YOU LISTENING?)
Sibling of Lenovo Vibe X3. been using Vibe, other than a poor non-wide angle front cam no changes at all. Display resolution this high seems overkill at 5.5" diagonal.
so, if you cant find Axon 7, you can buy Vibe X3.
GSMArena plz do a oneplus 3 vs axon 7 review.
these are the two best phones at 400$.
Also GSMarena didn't mention warranty of the phone being 2 years instead of the usual 1 year warranty.
plus ZTE will home drop and pickup under warranty at no extra cost.
KMB877, 27 Oct 2016Even more, the Axon 7 was designed by the American BMW Design Centre...
agreed. those two high end DAC's cost a lot too.
also being aluminum...it is one of the toughest aluminum phones out there. ZTE did a bend test too. it doesn't bend under pressure like mi5 or iphone.
i think this phone costs easily around 300$ or more unlike other premium offerings where the phone costs 150-250$ and sold for 500-600$
It is seriously really sad that this phone failed to find any customers in US for this price? Had it been available in my country, I would have bought it in a heartbeat.
I was looking at this device vs the LG G5 as the G5 is also now at 400usd. The zte has 64G vs LG 32G, but the LG has much better camera esp low light and panorama with its wide lens. Very close, but i think ill stick LG. My 2 cents.
I own the phone. It DOES NOT have a 3250 battery but if you go here - https://community.zteusa.com/thread/13026
You will see that the battery is ONLY 3140. ZTE lied!
Not only that but the phone struggles or fails when in a weak signal area compared to other phones. I know as I have personally experienced it. Buyer beware!
Lovee, 27 Oct 2016I don't understand why people even call non-removable battery a disadvantage. It's been more ... moreI don't know how much time you spent with your phone and how frequent you use it, but if you charge it every single day and even twice a day, just after 1.5 years you'll understand what the advantige is easy and safe to replace the battery of the phone. At this period of usage the capacity is redused to 60-70% or less from the time you're buy it 1.5 yeas ago ;)
John0087, 27 Oct 2016Actually I was surprised when I read about headphones attached to the phone performance, guys,... moreme too.
GSMarena plz review the audio test again if possible.
or do a competitive shootout like you did for camera of various devices.
do it for audio
