Incorporates all the best of Axon 7 and aims at a price which is intriguing. ZTE AXON 7 mini had struck in the chaos of Berlin, during IFA 2016, is now ready for Italian consumers with Vip Service.
The manufacturer gives attention to detail for the sale. There are many finishing touches on this box. The Interior however, is what matters. In addition to the ZTE AXON 7 mini, you can find a good cover, you need pins for NanoSIM, charger and usb cable type-c. Between the instructions and the guarantee Vip Service, you can also find the headset. ZTE AXON 7 mini is a small miracle in the audio field, it would have been nice to find higher quality headphones.
ZTE shakes hands with Designworks to study the design of this AXON 7 mini. The collaboration was successful, this device is nice. Triumph of glazed aluminium worked with extreme precision. The curves are accentuated but soft, this AXON 7 mini is comfortable to hold. Remarkable symmetry that there is carattereritrova everywhere, nothing is out of place, everything is elegantly placed the fingerprint sensor is accompanied by lines that take up space in the aluminium body. Finally there is no cure for the front, too often overlooked. This classic glass 2.5 D hugging each other with two front speakers attractive look.
AXON 7 mini is designed to be flexible to the newspaper, the location of the keys is just right, you can reach them without any problems. The overall construction is valid, this device is solid and compact. Even the weight of 158 grams is handled perfectly. A few words about ZTE AXON 7 mini, the design is successful and functional even if at first glance might seem already seen.
That sounds. Again, that sounds! ZTE AXON 7 mini is the choice to make if you love high-fidelity sound, if you love to listen to music with your smartphone, is the device to be taken if you spent all the family legacy on excellent quality headphones. The audio processor is made by AKM (Asahi Kasei Microdevices) and is enhanced with DolbyAtmos technology. OK apart from the specific and complex data, how does AXON 7 mini? From fear! Whatever it is emitted from those two frontaliNulla speakers sounds like this ZTE! is of outstanding quality, the sound is deep, rich in detail and nuance. I never heard songs that I heard details from memory. The volume is high, not earsplitting and it’s okay, this device does not distort the sound never, not even at maximum volume. ZTE reminds the world that an audio jack serves, he does it with quality, because music is a delight to listen to via jack.
Not just audio, ZTE has chosen the AMOLED technology for its 5.2-inch display FullHD. AMOLED screens usually reproduce colors in an unnatural, in this case it isn’t. This display has the classic character from AMOLED but preserves the natural colors, brightness is valid in broad daylight you read without any problem.
AXON 7 mini comes with Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 + MiFavor 4.0. ZTE’s interface is a good mix of Material Design and an Oriental look. There is no bloatware on this software, there is a good number of pre-installed apps but are those of system and will be useful someday. The adjusting menu sees only one big addition, section custom functions where there is so much choice between features useful and less useful. Vitali the gestures, useless unlocking by speech recognition.
The launcher is not that great, not because no app drawer, even for square icons. Animations of this launcher creates an annoying effect of microlag which in reality are absent. Just change launcher to realize that you have in your hands a device from convincing performance. The Snapdragon 617 can handle the classic daily workload without any delay or problem, everything is fluid. Even the RAM from well 3 GB is administered without any problems. I mean, if that system 7 mini AXON does not return much desired softness, it is the fault of the launcher. Performance is very valid.
The two small rear polycarbonate bands work well, this device has a valid receipt, although not stellar. The quality in capsule is very good, a further sign of the quality of the speakers. The fingerprint sensor is located on the rear is slightly tucked into the shell, this factor allows to locate it quickly. Unlocking is quick but the recognition is not precise. The accuracy of the sensor improves in proportion to our precision Center for the area. Averaging, unlock the first time 3 times out of 5.
AXON 7 mini mounts a camera by ben 16 Megapixels, this form is accompanied by a complete, accurate and fairly intuitive. The shooting experience is valid, the camera starts up quickly and the collection of information is quick for most conditions. In the presence of much light this AXON 7 mini almost surprising for the vivid colors and detail captured, images are well calibrated. Note two things, not always very fast focusing and exposure that can sometimes make bad jokes. Are trifles, with more attention you can bring home good photographs from this ZTE AXON 7 mini. With the setting of light performance are less convincing, the focus is less accurate and light management becomes more difficult, a situation common to many Smartphones. Absolutely not bad capture video in full HD with a sound recording to say the least convincing, another sign of love for audio by ZTE. Always ready to immortalize our indexed 8-Megapixel front camera, the good catch details and wide angles.
Are 2705 mAh provided by ZTE to this AXON 7 mini, a number that is not very high. Stable sensations, not a few days can hold until dinner, some days it is possible to see some strange drain. Evident that lack a bit of optimization that won’t be long in coming. In any case it will not be a monster of 7 mini AXON autonomy. Honest in this respect. ZTE focuses on AXON 7 mini to conquer the hearts of Italians, it does so through Vip Service that offers the extended warranty to 3 years, free repair for liquid damage within the first 3 months and screen replacement for accidental damage within the first 6 months. Never underestimate the value of the housing after the sale, all this enhances the ability of AXON 7 mini.
The design view character through those two front speakers that they sound great, difficult if not impossible to put into words the sound quality of this AXON 7 mini. Even the AMOLED display from 5.2 inches FullHD convinces and enhances the display of pictures taken with your valid 16 Megapixel camera. As a simple phone manages to convince, the unknown factor is the autonomy to settle. No performance problem for Android mini 7, probably will receive a short AXON 7.0 Nougat, a sign of great support.
