ZTE Axon Pro Review

With the recent introduction of its new flagship line here for the US, the ZTE Axon Pro is undoubtedly the result of many years of ambitious planning. Boasting a specs sheet that impresses on all fronts, the other remarkable part of this phone is the undercutting price point it’s been attached with. At only $450, it’s undeniably bred for stardom, but will it pay off in making ZTE a formidable force here?...

I don't see any reason to pick this over the LG G4. Its worth the extra $100.

Why is no support for CDMA networks a con? I mean isn't that something we all expect when talking about unlocked phones?

My concern would be OS updates. What is ZTE's track record? Have they made an official announcement regarding Android M on the Axon?

Why is the single core score so low? It's running the same 810 as m9.

nice try zte. but i completely lost interest when you faked the dual stereo speaker thing with those aesthetic grills.

Pretty good for the price. The thought the speakers are going to be sub par but this review tells otherwise.

Folks ZTE is awful- based in China- bought a Firefox Phone- sent without firmware-so couldn't work. Then spent 5 months speaking to Chinese staff-and still no resolution. Now they merge with Axion a French based company-great now we have companies Altcel - Lucent and Zte making phones. Buyer beware. Samsung- gauges you for huge amounts. Axon by ZTE is a no brainer. My Moto-Sony-Motorola-Nokia but stay away from the two above. Remember I told you first.

so not True..... I have nothing but great response from the ZTE US support team. The phone is great and I am happy with the 2 updates that they have sent out..... now if only they will just send out Marshmallow.
