Bottom Line

While not perfect, the ZTE Axon manages to strike the right compromises, resulting in an impressive phone that offers great bang for the buck.

The ZTE Axon is a 2015 5.5-inch mid-range Android smartphone that has received considerable praise for its sturdy metal design and a very good Full-HD IPS display. Reviewers overwhelmingly lauded ZTE for equipping a reasonably-priced device such as this with capable internal hardware like Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801, 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage space. Additionally, many saw the 3000mAh battery as very reliable, as were both the front and back cameras. Among the rocks which the Axon was too weak to lift were a bulky and unwieldy physique, non-removable battery and the lack of a microSD slot. The ZTE Axon is a budget-friendly smartphone which promises reliable service for both the short and long term.

Critic Reviews

  • Engadget July 27, 2015

    ZTE's Axon is a high-end smartphone designed with US consumers in mind, and we apparently crave lots of power, and no expandable memory.
