I read that some had problems updating to 7.1.1. I just bought the phone on 15.12.2017. It came with Marshmallow 6.1 but it was very easy to update to 7.1.1 and security patch October 2017. All I had to do is go to Settings, click on System updates and search. Within a few seconds there was my first update to download. I downloaded it and then installed it. After that I went back to System update and searched again. Another download showed. I downloaded and installed. Went back again and downloaded and installed another 3 updates, one after the other. In the end, I was told that my phone had the latest Firmware. Everything is working smoothly. Good luck. By the way, I bought my Axon in Germany simfree.
Hello owners of ZTE Axon 7. Do you have any updates on it since it come up on the market or ZTE do not care for the customers at all? Thanks for the answer.
So guys, did your phones arrive from Gearbest?
Mine did and after 1 week of use, I am mostly satisfied with it. It is a replacement for a Asus Zenfone 3 which is a real POS.
Quick review of 1 week with the phone, the phone is on Android 6 (B11) and no OTA updates are found. On ZTE website, there is a B05 update listed, but I am not sure if it is safe to update it as I had phones and tablets that are made worse with updates, cannot seem to find much information on A2017G update reviews online. Also, it has no stock Android launcher, just the MiFavor one, which has no app drawer. I installed Evie launcher on it and it seem to crash at least once a day, usually when reconnecting to Wifi after a long sleep. It can be kind of laggy when waking up, seems like memory needs catching up. Battery life is poor, but QC3 makes up for it. It charges from 24% to 32% in the time I take to smoke a cigarette, which is very good. Screen is good and sound is great, even with the included headphones. It feels great in hand, slightly smaller than a ZF3 5.5 and rounded corners are great on palm.
All it, I am happy with my purchase, just wish I had waited a week or so more before placing my order to save £25 on the Black Friday sales. I expect to be only using this phone for a year or so before changing to a Samsung A or S series or a LG V or G series.

Takes over a month to show up. Gearbest really shouldn't be selling goods they don't have or they shouldn't take payment before shipping.

Eventually received it 1st December in the UK.
DPD ( delivery company) started sending me delivery notifications on the 15th November.
They didn't deliver it until the 1st December.
It's definitely a waiting game ordering from gearbest.
Fantastic phone...definitely worth the wait
A great upgrade from my Samsung Galaxy S4.

I contacted them after 2 weeks and they say it is not in stock yet for the gold I ordered. Then the price dropped by £25 for Black Friday. After 3 weeks, it is shown as posted but the tracking number don't work. Think I will contact Paypal for a refund now...
Avoid GEARBEST (worst) ordered 2nd November = NOTHING - just letting me get a refund today which will take 7-14 days - which probably will be another month.
They lied over and over. I hope to never deal with such deception again.

Anonymous, 25 Nov 2017Where do you find this phone for so cheap. I live in the UK. GrrI got mine from Gearbest, which took the order when they had no stock, so I ended up waiting for so long that the dropped the price for Black Friday. Now I have no idea where it is (listed as posted) as their tracking number is not working. Hopefully it will arrives before Christmas. BTW, it is out of stock at Gearbest now, I suspect non are being produced anymore as Axon 8 is coming soon.
Macbeth, 17 Nov 2017It was still so underpriced for what it was back then!I just bought one, for £200 and then Black Friday came and it dropped to £175! Grrr... Anyhow, for £200, it is cheaper than most 625 phones and even though it is over 1 year old, I think it will still perform better than current 6## phones, at least that is what the benchmarks says.
