Phil, 19 Sep 2017Was happy with my ZTE till 7 months after purchase. One morning the device woke up n started t... moreKnown problem. You were using it on Verizon or Sprint, right? The phone needs a GSM sim card to update; there is no way around that. I purchased a GSM sim card from cellhire for $10 and updated. The good news is that I now have the option to use my UK phone number on cellhire though I don't know if I ever will.
Was happy with my ZTE till 7 months after purchase. One morning the device woke up n started to update the OS. It automatically rebooted indefinitely. No way to get it restarted afterwards.

Anonymous, 13 Sep 2017Actually the LG V20 and V30 by a hint but thats it.I thoroughly disagree. It's not the loudest among them, but sound QUALITY is much better IMO. Both with headphones and esp. speakers(by far)
It's been about 3 months now. This thing is absolutely amazing. The sound from both speakers AND headphones is short of phenomenal (but you DO have to use upscale phones, like mine Sehnheiser 595 at least). The amoled screen with 2K resolution is gorgeous, on par with Samsung's. In fact it IS made by Samsung! Add SD820, 4 GB/64 internal, expandable to 256 GB - what's not to like?! After Nugat 7.1.1 update the 20 mp camera and reception are great too IMO. Even the issues with low light camera performance seems to be gone. Will see, but so far it's been perfect for me, even if it was priced like the so called flagships. But it's NOT!!
Buy it on friday my ZTE axon 7
A2017g marshmallow no app drawer but after update to nougat now have Android stock!
Overall great phone!
I have had this phone now for 10 months.
Pros - Price point. Fast phone, great screen that can last about 4-5 hours on time and 4k videos play is amazing, dual sim, speakers are prob the best I have had on a cell phone. Worked on Verizon, until I had to call for support on Total Wireless, then they kicked me off data somehow. It had been working for 3 months on their system prior to my call. ATT/T-Mobil supported also (Straight Talk), which is what I am on now. Camera stabilization is ok, low light is not the best, same for videos. Finger print scanner hasn't skipped a beat, even when hands are dirty, sweaty, even if I have car oil or such on hands (thin nitrile gloves still register on my phone when working in the garage).
Cons - APN settings are a hit and miss and it resets itself a lot, so LTE is not that stable, even is LTE4 icon is on screen. Towers are very close to me and I am still in the 98 - 150s for radio dBm when I am less than 1/4 mile from provider towers. ZTE sucks for OS updates, security patches were a problem at the first half of the year.
Overall, I think it's hard to beat this phone, although I am about to upgrade to a Xioami Mi Mix. I like the Axon 7, I usually keep my phones for about 3-4 years, the cell tower issues is what's turning me away. Closest phone I can compare it to is an HTC One 8/9/10 model.
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2017Is there any phone with a better sound than the axon 7 ? Actually the LG V20 and V30 by a hint but thats it.
mimi, 27 May 2017DO NOT BUY! BUY AT UR OWN RISK! LOUSY CUSTOMER SERVICE if you can even call it that. they all ... moreI had to buy at my own risk because I have the China version (6+128GB) out of China.
No issues so far. BUY IT !!! IT'S EXCELLENT!
Android update in the China version is up to MiFavor UI 5.0 (the one mentioned before as the 08.01.17 update).
I guess internal memory is also updated to [up to] 256 GB.
