Design and Display

With a 5.2-inch Full HD AMOLED screen, the Axon is perfect for watching videos and catching up on TV in great quality. But don’t worry about accidental knocks or scratches – the screen is covered with durable Corning Gorilla Glass.

The full aluminium casing has smooth curved edges, so that it’s comfortable to use and doesn’t feel awkward in your hand. On the back is a fingerprint scanner for unlocking the phone, which is positioned where your hand naturally falls.

Camera

Thanks to a main 16 MP camera, the Axon 7 Mini is perfect for taking striking photos. The camera has an f/1.9 aperture, which is great for lower light settings and captures more light in every shot. When you have the perfect framing, you can focus in with a single tap, or enhance the shot with HDR or panoramic modes.

The front-facing 8-MP camera is ideal for taking high quality selfies, and you can also film yourself easily in vivid Full HD.

Under the Hood

Enjoy crystal clear audio wherever you are with the dual front-facing stereo speakers. With Dolby Atmos Digital Surround Sound technology, you can make sure that every song, podcast or video sounds great.

Featuring an octa-core Qualcomm processor, the Axon 7 Mini offers enough speed and power for all your apps, games and favourite websites. And when paired with 3-GB RAM, you can enjoy seamless multi-tasking without having to sacrifice on performance.

Accessories

ZTE Axon 7 Mini is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I only have one regret about buying this phone. I should have got any good seller, put it on ebay and bought the full Axon 7 rather than the mini and got the 2k screen etc. The screen is really good quality. Spec wise it's 1080 and I think it is amoled. I read things saying the brightness is quite low, maybe on paper but this screen is plenty bright enough and a really clean and sharp picture. Lets cut to the chase though, this phone is all about sound. Other than the Alcatel Idol 4 nothing comes close. The speakers are front facing stereo and they are loud. It has a dolby feature that sort of boosts compression and stereo width and gives a nice sound through the speakers. It also has a dolby surround sound gimmick built in, which to my surprise actually gives and excellent surroind sound effect. This phone has some high end audio chips too. Flick the dolby off for external sound such as car stereo, amplifier, or headphones and the sound reproduction is fantastic. WIFI and reception are quite good. GPS locks on really quick, bluetooth works great. The ZTE version of the Android operating system, it just works. It seems to get everything right. I combine it with Nokia Z launcher and for me it is a perfect combination. The camera is pretty good. I don't take loads of pictures but it is definitely good enough in this price bracket and so are the video recordings. The USB (C I think) is reversible, which is way more important than yoi realise when you are stabbing around in the dark trying not to wake people up. Battery was my main concern, it is pretty small. It goes well though, I was quite surprised. It does a lot better than other similar battery and screen specs. I didn't realise that this phone was quick charge. It is and out of the box too, it charges really fast. You get in ear ear bud headphones and a a rubber phone protector in the box. 2 months I have had this now and I love it. I would recommend buying a sandisk for extra storage, I still need to. It isn't a power house, if you need a power phone then do yourself a favour and get the Axon 7. If not then this Axon 7 mini is an absolute beast for it's price. The phone looks great. I have one little gripe that I am not a fan of on screen controls and would have prefered them on the hardware but that is it, I can't find anything bad about it. I have had 5 China phones now a poor Huawei, an average Xiaomi and a terrible THL. I had an excellent old cheap Xiaomi phone too but this blows them all away. I was really hoping that this phone wouldn't be a rehash of the rubbish, over hyped HTC One. It isn't, it is in a whole other league.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brill I had my for about 8 months and it awesome. It can take quite the beating for the size but i would recommend it to anyone to wants a mid range phone. Then again it better than a mid range phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great phone let down by Carphone Warehouse This phone which has been around for a while still provides plenty of bang for your buck. Unfortunately the OTA update to Android 7.1 released by ZTE isn't available yet due to the Axon 7 Mini from Carphone Warehouse being locked by them, and therefore unable to receive the update until it is cleared be them. This a tantamount to ensuring that the phone doesn't stay competitive amongst it's peers which have Android 7.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good phone Is very good phone like for medium price phones. But it is a single sim card, in the sim tray is no option for dual sim only sim and micro SD card. Is no option to put second card. If you have a doubt check how many imei numbers you have. Simple. One imei one sim. Thank you.
