nimz13, 17 Oct 2016Hey mate - where did you order yours from if you dont mind me asking?https://www.amazon.de/ZTE-Smartphone-Display-Megapixel-Speicher/dp/B01I092IPC/ref=sr_1_1?s=telephone&ie=UTF8&qid=1476794884&sr=1-1&keywords=axon%2B7&th=1
This is direct from ZTE. Works out equivalent to £417 (and £14 cheaper than I paid!). I bought from Amazon.de direct because ZTE listing was sold out, but they've clearly stocked up!
Came within 3 days (and that was over a weekend), loving it so far!
AnonD-594788, 18 Oct 2016I was just about to order one since I thought this would be one of those fully unlocked phones... moreAre you crazy, for Axon 7 the support is amazing, already root and bootloader unlocked!!!
I was just about to order one since I thought this would be one of those fully unlocked phones, but there is little support from XDA for it. I checked the year-old Axon Pro on XDA, and there is pitiful support (http://forum.xda-developers.com/zte-axon) . Does ZTE not have unlockable bootloaders? If not, why? Don't they want them to sell them to the people in the US who are most likely to buy them? Why would they cripple what looks to be, spec-wise, a great phone? A big battery, a true 5.5" display without wasting screen with soft buttons, and SD card capability (the lack of which causes me not to buy another Oneplus). But they don't allow XDA to provide the most battery efficient roms with the fastest updates and best performance for it? WTF, ZTE?
Just ordered from Amazon.de, can't wait till it gets here next week!
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2016I owned AXON 7 for a few days, unfortunately it had to go back because of speakers issues. It ... moreAs far as i'm aware (but I could be wrong); there are three 'models' or setups of the Axon 7: China, US, and EU. Essentially the same hardware, but certain features and settings in the software have been altered to meet the needs of the audience the model is going to. I've avoided buying the China version, as from what i've heard these models normally come with a different/more modified OS to suit the government restrictions etc, and to make them good for outside use they're wiped with a more 'friendly' OS (to include GAPPS etc). Too much fiddling around in my opinion. Could explain the bugs you got (but again I could be wrong); i've gone for an EU model as presumably this model is what the UK would get anyway? Will update and let you know any problems I get with mine (should land on my desk in the next 24 hours!)
Benboy , 08 Oct 2016This is THE phone ! If you can get it in the UK for a good price...Unfortunately because of the crappy GBP (and we haven't even Brexited yet!) you pay slightly over the odds for this phone- I paid £430 from amazon.de, which is almost £100 above the RRP of £350 (US RRP is 400USD). But considering that retail is about to go up by 5% due to our crap currency, better 430 than more!

Pretty much everywhere i check it's from 480-550 $.Some ebay sellers sell it for 600$ even.Xiaomi mi 5 around 350$ yeah.So far almost the Zte axon 7 is around 400$.
techlover1, 11 Oct 2016Well, (okay the ZTE Axon 7 is not perfect, & nothing is), it needs some software updates, ... moreI AM NOT AGREED WITH YOU!
Lenovo zuk z2 pro 6gb ram with 128gb memory (400 dollars) and simple zuk z2 (250 dollars) and Xiaomi mi5(300 dollars) are the best snapdragon 820 pricing phone available in the world right now..
Axon is nothing against those beasts in term of pricing, trust me ..
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2016but crap camera and lenovos useless serviceDude you high or something ? Lenovo zuk z2 pro has one of the best camera in the world even matches the s7 edge and s7.. And I bet its camera is 100 times better than this axon as well.
Lenovo zuk z2 pro is a much better choice than this Axon 7 considering the 6gb ram in it ..
AnonD-153154, 14 Oct 2016The Lenovo Zuk Z2 Pro is also a great package, with more ram(6GB) with similar price.Hi
Not actually with similar price, even similar specs!
Lenovo Zuk Z2 Pro :
SD card slot/2K display/stereo speakers/ Dolby Atmos: "No" & for 64GB/4GBr = 530 euro
Axon 7 for 64GB/4GBr = 450 euro
Whis is better!? In my opinion, according to front dual stereo speakers: Axon 7 because Music is for me No.1
i just bought from ali it and very dissapointed. it is not as fast as it should be, both cameras are worst than in my previous cellphone which had 13 and 5 mpx cameras, android is not upgraded to nougat. could it be that ali sold a bullshit...?
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2016but crap camera and lenovos useless serviceWhere did you get that from? The Zuk Z2 Pro has one of the best cameras among the Chinese phones.
