I have it for 4 months. Seven mini is a best value for money smartphone. There is some critcism about this phone and all i can say to those people is get off your high horse. Axon 7 mini, works fine for regular people like me and i'm not some rich geek who has to have latest and most expensive tech, and i think thats a majority of smartphone users. Features premium alluminium​ build, figerprint reader, beautiful amoled, BEST stereo speakers on the market and top hi-fi experiance of any smartphone with Dolby Atmos, only one above is marshall london (but thats an old phone). 32gb rom and 3gb ram for a price from 200 - 300 euros - dollars. Battery gets 4-5 hours screen on time. Updates are regular and it will receive nougat 7.1.1. thats already in beta.
Robert, 22 Jan 2017I purchased ZTE Axon 7 mini Two weeks before. I would like to share my opinion on this. ... moreVery true indeed. I got this phone from lucky draw. Been using it for 4months. Lagging and sound very poor. Hang as well if u multi tasking

I got a picture of a Axon 7 mini's sim tray which has only 1 nano sim slot and an sd card slot. It doesn't have the hybrid sim tray what you are talking about. ZTE already confirmed that there are two variants about this phone, one with dual sim support and one with single sim support. It is normal that manufacturers release 2 slightly different designs, ZTE do this fairly often. I can post a picture of the sim tray if you want, but please don't mislead everybody on gsmarena.
Hi GSMarena, have zte fixed the issue with anonymous caller ID? Does the phone still only make anonymous calls or have they added a caller ID function?

All of them are that way by design, you either chose 2 sims or sim +sd card, the second slot on the tray is compatible with both sim and sd, there are no other versions of this phone, only one.

The official update is probably coming in a month or so
There is a single sim model as well which is not listed in the specs. This has a nano sim + sd card sim tray which is slightly different from the dual sim variant's sim tray and can be easily mixed up. Be careful about this, especially in Europe, because sometimes even the sellers don't know about this.
Axon 7 Mini will also get Nougat update for those who wonder when or if it gets the update. Some moderator said it on xda forums so it's not officially coming from ZTE but it makes sense that updating Axon 7 mini is next in line now that Axon 7 has got 7.1.1 update recently.
me, 07 Sep 2016should I get this phone or the Samsung J7 prime that is about to be released?The J7 Prime
This is a really good phone for it's price, but battery life is okay at best. Playing an intensive game like Asphalt 8 only gave me around 2 hours of screen on time. For regular usage in a day, I usually end up having 2:30 to 3:30 hours of screen on time
I purchased ZTE Axon 7 mini Two weeks before.
I would like to share my opinion on this.
Best Music Quality.
Scheduled power off and on.
Whatsup audio play not working properly and hangs frequently either if it is interrupted any calls or doing any multi tasking.
Download files from wetransfer is not working.
Multitasking leads to mobile hang.
Can not play whatsup audio and video files from file manager list.
No proper batch updates available.
Call quality is not good as they mentioned in the specification.
Every time needs to change the sound quality and level if the kit is restarted.
I am not checking camera and gaming performance so far.
Many accessories and specification difference are between Axon 7 and Axon 7 mini but not mentioned in the portal.
Can be fit for basic functionality, not for enhanced functionalities.
Lot of small level of bugs needs to be fixed.
The phone seems unreliable...My axon mini fails many times to start.
It tries to start then fail. The problem stays two days then start normally. The problem appear when battey dies and when i charge it ti doesn't start.. I just hear the vibrator sound and see the logo screen
I try to to force it to sart but no luck...stupid phone
cesarnieto, 13 Jan 2017everything is fine except no 5g wifi detects...that seems highly unlikely. virtually all phones after 2013 have 2.4 and 5GHz wireless cards. if you don't see 5 GHz it's b/c ur router doesn't support it.
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2016Screen too dark, but only 250 $, so good phone for the money because of its exceptional speakersthe screen comes set in auto,which IS very dark, but this feature can be turned off and brightness manually set. This allows the screen to be pretty damn decent.
Had this phone for a month now, it's really good and so far i haven't had any real complaints about this besides for not being able to format the SD card as internal storage and battery life playing intensive games was around 2-3 hours of screen on time
