ZTE Axon 7 Review: The phone which broke our music test…

The ZTE Axon is an absolute monster looking at the specs. From the Qualcomm 820, to the 64GB of built in storage, there are precious few compromises one might make in picking this phone over more expensive options. The most exciting development might just be the headphone audio, which completely broke how we test playback quality. You’ll have to see it to believe it. Here’s our full review of this $400 beast.

Elias Jr Martinez says:

I’ll be honest here:
Have 3 phones with me, Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, Axon 7 And Galaxy S7 Edge.
Music Test:
Using Headphones:
Sony > Axon > Samsung
Using Speakers:
Axon >>>>>>>> Sony Samsung
Image Quality:
When It comes to blacks:
Samsung > Axon > Sony.
When It comes to Whites:
Sony > Axon > Samsung
When It comes to colors:
Samsung and Sony > Axon
Note the red colors on the Axon 7 looked kinda orange, I was watching a Iron Man Vs Hulk video and Iron Man looked so Red in the Sony and Samsung and kinda orange on the Axon and I was using the gorgeous quality on the Axon still did not look better than the Sony and Samsung Hulk also seemed very green on both Samsung and Sony but less on the Axon 7.
When It comes to speed:
Samsung > Sony > Axon
Samsung is just a little bit faster than the Sony.
When It Comes To Camera:
Samsung > Sony > Axon
When It comes to resolution:
Sony > Samsung Axon tied.

Mike12mt says:

siemniak says:

i think i need to have this phone or eait for axon 8

That Guy says:

As much music as I listen to and YouTube I watch, the Axon 7 makes it reeeeeally hard to go to a phone with lesser audio capabilities.

Jimi Vahlfors says:

Is this worth 500€?

reynardo Matos says:

he said megapickle

kilobits says:

so im guessing the headphone jack doesn’t commonly break?
cause that’s a thing with the zenfone, and im still pissed about that

Simon Inga says:

8 mega pickle front camera

Magda Sebilion says:

Is this phone sounding better than htc in headphones?

mynameis bob says:

gagalover mcally says:

Vien Ton says:

Can’t decide between this and the HTC 10 :/

Kevin St.Onge says:

megapickle 1:09

Gershon Dharmanandan says:

Audio VS the V20?

bikertod says:

is this phone available for Verizon?thanks

Flare says:

Lol “8 megapickle”

Briley Gabriel says:

This very well may be my next phone. Just waiting to see “hands on” reviews of Nokia’s line up.

Richard Hogge says:

suprised he didn’t mention that on cdma carriers there is little to no support. atleast thats what it says on zte’s website (it says support for gsm carriers like at&t and tmobile) so if you’re on sprint or verison I’m guessing there is no “offical” support anyway.

I swear, it's an armpit! says:

1:09 “megaPICKLE”

Molon Labe says:

Any answers back from ZTE regarding the WIFI discrepancy? It seems that all speed tests against the Oneplus 3t are showing this concern.

Father Hawk says:

i love it when my front faceing camera has plenty of megapickles

Romeo Manuel N. Silva says:

Any solutions to that down sampling they mentioned?

Robert Clark says:

I might grab the 6 gigs ram 128 variant.

Roberto Paredes says:

PODEMOS SEPARAR EL SONIDO DE UN TELEFONO CON UNA Y STEREOFONICA (separador de sonido) AURICULAR ANTENA, EL OTRO SALIDA DE SPEAKERS, LA UNICA DIFERENCIA QUE LA LLAMADA INTERNACIONAL INTERFIERE, LA LOCAL PUEDES ESCUCHARLA MUY BIEN. EN UN DVD SEPARAMOS EL SONIDO SI SE ESCUCHARAN CHASQUIDOS EN LA TV, entonces solo ira el vídeo de color amarillo, del dvd iran a uno speakers.

Nguyen Luan says:

I’m undecided betweet this phone and the Lg V10. Bestbuy has the Verizon Lg V10 for $299 and the Axon 7 for $349. Which one should I get guys?

InfiniteGadget says:

I really need to upgrade my HTC M8
so should i go for this or the OP3, or even the Honor 8?

BlackGold Productions says:

1:08 eight megapickle? that’s impressive!

bartiz12 says:

Any Axon 7 owners here? I have a question, does the external DAC work in PowerAmp player, or does it use built in SD820 amplifier? I am a little concerned since I have read topics regarding compatibility issues with it. I wonder if situation has changed since it is already February 2017.
