The US version apparently supports 2 SIM cards.
The Axon mini can only accommodate 1 SIM card, not 2 SIM cards. The second card slot in the SIM carrier is for a micro SD memory card, only.
I was misled by the specs description, when it identified the second SIM carrier slot, as a SIM 2 slot. :-(
The Axon 7 ( the Axon mini Big Brother) phone does have the capability to use 2 SIM cards, in the SIM carrier.

Regarding update to 7.1.1, try this link: https://forum.xda-developers.com/axon-7-mini/how-to/updating-uk-version-zte-axon-7-mini-to-t3717933 .
It involves three downloads and three cycles of updates - all successfully accomplished from the SD card. I followed the instructions carefully and now my mini runs 7.1.1 as does my Axon 7.
The only "anomaly" was that after the first cycle, the home screen was wonky - but it was fixed on the second cycle.
Bought the gold Axon 7 Mini, model B2017G but it is stuck on Android 6.0.1, security patch January 1, 2017. ZTE support tells me to keep waiting for update, but I went to ZTE support pages, downloaded the zipped update for the silver mini (as the gold mini does not show and update button), tried to install, and received an error message (something like model mismatch).
Anyone else having similar problems? Suggestions?
BTW, my Axon 7 is on Android 7.1.1

css, 04 Nov 2017good phone, bought from pc mobile two months ago $149.99(CND)I was thinking to grab one from PC Mobile too. May you tell me if this phone is locked or unlocked? I am currently using freedom mobile. Thx
The Axon 7 is only slightly larger and has better specs and features for $265 USD on Gearbest so unless you hate capacitive buttons or can't spend extra then get this
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2017Poor phone. Very slippery design, very slow ram and poor battery life. Avoid it.I am zte axon 7 lover best sound ever..... I use my phone over wifi around the day. It consume only 40 percent.
Iam using this since from one month battery won't stay longer.heatingup problem
ZTEFTW, 18 Apr 2017Any proof? I got a picture of a Axon 7 mini's sim tray which has only 1 nano sim slot and an s... moreAgreed. The Canadian variant of this phone has a hybrid SIM tray that could physically ccommodate either 2xNano SIM or 1xNano SIM plus 1xMicroSD;
However, electrically, it will only actually accept the 1xNano SIM plus 1xMicroSD option. It doesn't even list a 2nd IMEI number under settings.
So I don't know if the limitation is actually a difference in hardware, or if it's actually just being limited in software by a different OS build, but either way it definitely is not dual-SIM.

mini7, 27 Sep 2017Also can you only call with anonymous id, or has this been sorted out now?Anonymous Call can be done on any cellphone.
I think Axon 7 Mini User Interface is a little bit different from other Android phones.
but it can be done as the following steps.
From Phone app, (built-in Dialler)
Setting (Gear Icon right top),
Call Settings >
Carrier Settings >
Additional settings >
mini7, 27 Sep 2017What is the general consensus should I buy an unlocked phone & sim only contract or buy a ... moreI will never buy a carrier phone again as I got burned by AT&T when I completed my contract and wanted to "unlock" the phone. With a non-AT&T SIM, I found that I could make calls and access the internet, HOWEVER, I cannot use it as a mobile hotspot. That functionality is only reserved for AT&T SIM cards (there's a check in the phone code) and is NOT unlocked. This is with a Samsung S4 mini (SGH-I257).
