Mostly Perfect...Ok Their Apps, not so much, but really, that hurts nothing...

Posted on: August 7th, 2016 by rodger_hodgson

Here's the thing....The ZTE Axon 7 comes with a sort of stock set of apps and it's own apps. So, replace their Text message horror, with Google Messenger, and the Default Launchers (there's 2) with one of your choice, mine is LLauncher, and you have a pretty damn fine phone that competes, compares, and can even best phones that are twice the price! So why is the phone not even on the list to be voted on here on Phonedog?? Shoulder shrug....Because it doesn't have some flashy announcement like everything Galaxy does?? This phone has the same exact Processor/amount of Ram, an SD Card slot, and even has much better audio output(Front Facing Stereo speakers). The sound is the best I've ever heard in a cell phone. The ring volume has been so loud and distracting while I'm working that I had to reduce it to about 15% volume. Even the Notifications had to go down 80% in volume! The display(2560 x 1440p quad HD) is the best I've ever had and seen. Crisp, clear and without issues. The camera shines...ok, that will be the place Samsung can best it, but not to the tune of $400 extra $$'s. No way. The camera will still be stellar for most everyone with full manual controls for those who like to tinker, and the call quality has been clean and clear. The signal strength has been good, but in the areas I know are low on ATT signal...which really are very few, the Axon 7 struggled a little bit. Still, not a daily problem. Oh, it has a SD Card Slot, and room for 2 sim cards for 2 lines if you forgo the SD Card....which is easy to do when you have 64gb's built in! It's a shame most people who look for new phones will get suckered in by the Big Red, Blue, and Purple....Yes, they only charge people $29 a month for their Galaxy of Phones! for only 30 months! Stupid me paying only $399 for the Axon 7 and $35 a month for 2.5 gigs at Cricket...$45 if I wanted 5 gigs. In a world of ridiculous pricing on Top notch phones....I'm looking at you Samsung......Here is a solid alternative to em all! Now everyone vote for this thing and take Sammy Down!!!
