ZTE Axon Elite


I'm a little bit confused by the ZTE Axon line. Mostly because there seem to be lots of models floating about with features reserved for certain regions. A US version got a release earlier in the year, to fairly positive reviews, while there's also a...

ZTE Axon Elite review


Ever wanted to unlock you phone with your eyes? Now you can.

Eye scanning tech ; Powerful camera ; Quick charge

Ugly rear, chunky design ; Doesn't feel premium ; Childish UI

Unlocking your phone with your eyes is pretty cool, but it may not be enough to make the Axon Elite a hit.

ZTE Axon Elite review: Unlock this phone with eyes, voice or finger


ZTE takes security to the next level with the Axon Elite smartphone, a 4G phablet you can unlock with your eyes, voice or finger.

The ZTE Axon Elite has great specs and some interesting tech at an excellent price, but while we appreciate many users will love the design we aren't entirely taken by it - especially the fake-leather parts on the rear. If you can't get the OnePlus 2,...

ZTE Axon Elite – Review


A surprisingly impressive phone, and one that younger generations would probably enjoy to use daily.

During the time with the ZTE Axon Elite, I have been part impressed with ZTE and part frustrated. For the most part, everything feels thought out and well-put together. The ability to tweak and change the wallpapers and themes was a lot more fun than...

ZTE Axon Elite review


ZTE's Axon Elite is flashy and fast, but too many extra features weigh it down.

ZTE’s Axon Elite is a good buy. It’s well priced, the camera’s fantastic, and it’s just as fast and high performance as phones costing twice as much — the Sony Xperia Z5 and the HTC One M9, for example. It’s the antithesis of the OnePlus 2, a phone...

ZTE Axon Elite Smartphone Review


Flagship with some issues. The ZTE Axon Elite is the current flagship device from the Chinese manufacturer in the European market. At a first glance, it ticks all the right boxes with 4K video recording, fingerprint scanner and a very powerful...

good build quality, bright display, fast SoC, sufficient memory, microSD, dual-SIM, 4K video recordings

bulky chassis, only USB 2.0, display prone to scratches, high power consumption, problems with the Wi-Fi, only Bluetooth 4.0

The ZTE Axon Elite is the first flagship device from the manufacturer in Europe. The impression in our review was pretty mixed. The important aspects of marketing are well covered, because the chassis is well built, the display is very bright and the...

ZTE Axon Elite


The Axon Elite is ZTE's latest entry in the Axon line of GSM unlocked Android smartphones with fairly high end specs. The phone runs Android 5.0.2 with ZTE's MiFavor 3.2 UI on the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 CPU with Adreno 430 graphics. It has 3...

Fast performance with Snapdragon 810, very good cameras, facial recognition that actually works pretty well. Unlocked for use with any GSM carrier

Tacky gold paint job, unpleasant custom UI

The ZTE Axon Elite is priced higher than the US version of the 32 gig Axon and Axon Pro. For US buyers it's hard to recommend the Elite given the unpleasant MiFavor UI and slightly older Android OS version. More importantly, the US versions net you LTE...

First Looks: ZTE Axon Elite


The ZTE Axon Elite is quite possibly the world's most secure smartphone. Not satisfied with just fingerprint scanning, the Axon Elite boasts three forms of biometrics: fingerprint, voice, and eye. It also boasts dual rear cameras and a Snapdragon 810...

This is ZTE’s first truly high-end smartphone to be launched outside of China, and the company has packed it full of bells and whistles to help it stand out from the crowd. The eye scanning tech is fun to play with and is great to show off to admiring...

ZTE Axon Elite


Very stylish phone, with an amazing high quality screen very fast & fluid to use. The build quality, finish is very impressive feels very premium, feature set & camera are superb. Makes other more mainstream phones seem overpriced.

The back button and home button at the base of the screen only stay illuminated for afew seconds when you typing otherwise they hidden. The position of the power button on the side of the phone means you sometimes switch the screen off by mistake. But...
