One of the best and cheapest phones with a 20 megapixel back camera. A few minor errors could be fixed for a Axon 8, best budget phone. Better than the Iphone 7 plus.

I watched a review and someone mentioned it being accessible to anyone, thus defeating the purpose of it being a security measure. . .

I m a mate 8 owner very satisfied but it's speakers r low n second it's very big to handle .can I switch to axone 7 being an owner of mate8...

Thanks for the info...
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2016Where to get the Chinese version and did you have to tweak anything?Got it from aliexpress. It is ready to go. But you will have to update firmware if you want to have the latest firmware installed. Simple process
This is a great phone no doubt. I had to get the 128gb so have the Chinese version. Phone is snappy. ..looks great. Fantastic sound and wonderful and vibrant screen. The camera is very good except during the night - not so good. Overall. ...a very good phone and is a good replacement for my note 7.

Zeemans, 29 Oct 2016Is this phone getting the Nougat update? ZTE promised that brings Nougat for all models, but I guess android 7 or nougat only for some models!
This is really the most and best value for money flagship phone/ phablet of 2016, & probably even more. Well done and absolutely keep it up to ZTE (Axon 7)
How to fix screen overlay detected problem in zte axon 7 ?
anyone else hv the same problem?
pls help me.. thank you..
Well at last GSM did what everyone looking forward to 'A review of Axon 7' thk u
I purchased axon 7. I had problem with the audio. People cannot hear me when I make a call. Cast to Bluetooth or HD TV the audio become very faint. So I replaced the phone.
The calling problem is okay now but the cast audio problem is not fixed yet.
Got this phone unlocked off Newegg. Works perfectly fine with WIND mobile, if any other WIND customers are wondering - the one they sell on Newegg is the model with the right band support (as of writing this, October 2016).
The screen is large and beautiful with punchy colors that can be slightly adjusted between a few saturation levels and color temperature levels. The fingerprint sensor is well placed for quick one-handed use but since it's on the back it's harder to use when set down. Despite no reviews mentioning it, hopefully this pops up in Google search for anyone wondering: This phone does have a notification LED - it's below and slightly to the left of the front-facing camera. The Capacitive buttons on the front are *not* illuminated and are slightly close together - YMMV on whether or not close together is good. I think it's good because there's no chance of the base of my thumb accidentally triggering back/recent apps. The capacitive buttons' functions can be swapped in order. It does *not* take a long time to memorize where they are, as I was using it in the dark just fine not 30 minutes after unboxing, and I haven't struggled with it once (have had it for a month or so now).
In my mind the best thing about this phone is dual stereo front-facing speakers, Dolby Atmos EQ software and built-in DAC quality. If you love having your media sound detailed and clear, this will please you. At maximum volume this phone is room-filling loud, and yet still preserves audio output quality through the speakers. Do note that while the phone sounds great, Dolby Atmos is a finnicky piece of software that does not play well with some music player apps and may disable itself - you can try doing a factory reset to get it back up. Annoying yes, but that's the fault of the application being buggy not the phone itself.
I won't comment on camera quality as I don't really care for it and there's enough samples out there.
The phone feels nice in hand - the right balance of physical size and weight to feel premium in the hand but not like a brick. It's also very friendly for soft skin - no harsh edges to cut into your palms. All control buttons (volume and power/lock) are on the right side of the phone and are clicky and responsive. The all-metal unibody does feel nice, but as it's been said elsewhere it is uncomfortably slippery - I wish they'd have given it a more matte texture to make it both easy to grip and soft in the hand. Luckily they provide a thin flexible clear plastic case for you to help keep your grip on it. Aside from the front speaker grilles, the phone is elegant looking - no garishly large logos or strange shapes/edges.
It does run MIUI on top of Android, but as far as skins go it's not intrusive in the least. By default (they include a skin for MIUI selected by default called "Stock Android") all it does is change how the quick and (full) menu settings look and are organized. That's all. It doesn't really add or take much from the stock android experience, and this is coming from someone who was a Motorola loyalist.
As far as "bloatware" goes, there's next to none. There is one or two apps that aren't default Android/Google apps or basic smartphone utilities (ex. media player apps, file browser).
The honest to God only complaint I have with this thing is the stupid STUPID "Notification bell" they add to the otherwise generic lockscreen. On the stock lockscreen it hides notifications by default and to see/interact with them you have to tap a bell-shaped icon on the lock screen. Some might call this an extra layer of privacy from peepers on your phone, but anyone who has used a smartphone will know to tap the icon to see them. It's a frustrating little unneeded addition - the only one I can think of as being frustrating about the MIUI skin over Android.
Lastly, for the hardware specs - runs snappy with its 4GB of RAM and SD820 processor. Battery life, you can look at more detailed reviews for that, my anecdotes won't say much. It came with around 50 - 60GB of free space from the base 64GB it comes with after system and pre-installed apps, which is pretty good all considered. It's got dual SIM capability, *and* accepts microSD cards, but they're in the same tray so you *cannot* have a microSD card and two SIM cards installed (the tray accepts two SIM cards or one SIM and a microSD).
If you want a crazy-good media experience out of your phone, get this thing. The price is just right.
