ZTE Axon is a solid device launched a few years ago, equipped with an enormous 5.5-inches multi-touch screen, a fast 2300 MHz processor, a 13 mega-pixels back side camera and an 8 mega-pixels front facing camera.

This phone is extremely thin and comfortable, with a thickness of just 0.37". This phone is a compact phone, considering it packs a 5.5" screen and it only has 6.06" long. ZTE has made a very good job making the ZTE Axon as lightweight as 5.99 ounces. Regarding its construction quality, this phone is majorly manufactured with aluminum; plastic. This cellphone is for sale in 3 different colors, gray, blue and gold.

This phone has a beautiful 5.5" display with a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, which makes everything look brightful and colorful. This display uses TFT capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This phone is powered by a powerful 2.3 gigahertz processor, packed into the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 8974 chip with a large 2 GB RAM. This phone comes with a huge 32 GB internal storage and though it doesn't have an external SD slot, it is still enough to store tons of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without having to worry about running out of space.

This phone features two cameras, a 13 megapixels back-facing camera and an 8 mega-pixels front facing camera. It can also capture 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 frames per second. This cellphone also features a few interesting characteristics like flash, auto-focus, time lapse video, face detection shooting and geo tagging.

This phone has a big capacity 3000 mAh non-replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for many hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it. ZTE says this device has a talk time of 25 hours and a stand by time of 300 hs. An issue to consider is that the ZTE Axon's battery is non-replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to lose its charge, although with its 3000 mAh you will probably buy a new phone before it becomes an issue.

This phone offers wifi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE fast data connection or 3G fast connectivity, supported by HSPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. The ZTE Axon uses a SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

The ZTE Axon also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

This device is a very good offer considering it's an amazing cellphone and it costs only 135 dollars. No matter if you will use it as a gaming phone, want a phone mostly for internet broswing and social networks or are looking for a work cellphone, you will definitely be very happy with it.
