ZTE Axon M

Description

Looking at the Axon M as just a regular device, the spec sheet doesn’t look too shabby. SD821, 4 gigs of RAM, and 64GB storage make us feel like we’re dealing with a near-flagship-level device, while the glass and aluminum body further reinforce this feeling. Throw in a 20-megapixel sensor, 4K video recording, and USB-C with Quick-charge 3.0 and we’re feeling pretty good about the Axon M. Of course, then there’s the form-factor. As a clamshell, it’s a narrow device that feels like its packing a little more than most phones, but that’s obviously because it is.

This device is also known as ZTE Z999

Cons

  • Thick body (0.48 inches)
