The Axon 7 is a step up from its predecessor in many ways, but the most obvious improvement is its design. ZTE partnered with BMW Designworks in crafting the Axon 7, and the result is a handsome handset that I couldn't keep my hands off of when I saw it in May.
Other highlights include a 20-megapixel camera that features dual or "hybrid" image stabilization (IS), which is a blend of optical and digital IS, loud speakers powered by two sound chips and a dual SIM slot. As with previous Axon devices, ZTE is offering its Passport 2.0 warranty service that provides replacements or loaners if you break your phone within two years of purchase. That's a solid bundle of features for the price. If you're already sold and will be pre-ordering, you won't have to wait long to get the phone; The Axon 7 starts shipping July 27th.
