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

Bought this phone yesterday and have to say the dac is amazing .flac quality is just incredible. Only problem is the rubbish music player app that sets everything in alphabetical order instead of numerical and can not be changed. Changhin music player is not an option either as far aas i know it switches to built in dac and not the one from AKM.
Too bad about this phone. I like smaller phones but this one is 4 mm longer than its predecessor, the original Axon Mini, 1 mm wider and 13 grams heavier without having a larger battery. How did it gain such weight and bulk? My view, is that people who want smaller phones want the bodies to be as compact as possible too, to match the smaller screen. Otherwise you might as well get a 5.5 inch phone and forget about compactness. Of the 2 Axon Mini's I would buy the earlier one - similar specs more compact and likely much lower price due to being older.
This is a perfect phone it works flawlessly. the phone is super fast. BUY THIS PHONE PLEASE more especially the unlocked one. The only problem is that you cant hide you caller ID and you cant reboot into safe mode without using the bios of the phone......
What you see is what you get!! Very nice phone. with a very good sound (Stereo, HiFi, Dolby)
Enough internal space (ROM and RAM) and extended memory (microSD 256 Gb). Bright colours with Gorilla glass (4) screen.
I rarely give feedback. But, I'm in love with this phone. It is hands down the best performing, most feature packed phone that I've owned. The only downsides are the non-replaceable battery and the lack of dual-band WiFi.
I returned my Nexus 5x because of Bluetooth problems.
I've owned numerous Samsung devices which have _never_ seen real OS updates. This is already on 6.01 and will be updated to Nougat. My Galaxy Avant from 2014 was discontinued and is now stuck on Kitkat 4.4.2. My Galaxy Grand Prime (TMO) is slow and has no room for apps. And what I don't understand is why Cyanogen doesn't target more of these Walmart type low-mid range phones.
Got my Axon 7 mini on a Black Friday deal for $199. How could anyone go wrong with that?
Just gotta hope that the battery lasts a long time.
I have the Axon Mini 7. It works a lot better than the Samsung Galaxy S5 which had a tendency to slow down to a crawl at times for no known reason. The camera leaves something to be desired, but it is serviceable. The only times where I have noticed the slower processor on the Mini 7 were when I was streaming music and had other apps running in the background... it would sometimes skip which I assumed was a processor issue, because it quit happening when I killed everything else in the background. I don't do much gaming so not sure what the effect of the processor would be there. I really enjoy the phone. Its very customizable and is working great for me in most areas. I stream video on it and the picture/sound is great for both that and music. I love the simple little clear plastic case, it makes the phone much less slippery. The finger print sensor works fine although you need to be careful to train it with your fingertips in slightly different positions each time. I am so happy that I bought this phone, because it is not TOO big like most phones and it only cost me $300 which is amazing. I'm saying goodbye forever to ridiculously expensive phones from Apple and Samsung forever!
