ZTE Axon 30 Ultra 5G in for review

0 0

This is the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra 5G, a phone that ZTE announced for the Chinese market in April and which will hit the global markets on May 27th.

From $ 749 / € 749 / £ 649 for 8/128 GB trim and moving up to $ 849 / € 849 / £ 739 for 12/256 GB top deals, the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra 5G is pretty aggressively priced and it apparently does not look out to any corners are on the way.

You get a potent 66W charger inside the box as well as a USB cable, earbuds, a USB-C for 3.5 mm dongle and a thin case that leaves the flat sides of the phone exposed.

The design of the Axon 30 Ultra 5G stands out right away. Sharp lines meet square corners, metal meets glass, precision meets function.

The sides of the phone are flat, similar to the iPhone 12. But unlike the iPhone, the matte back panel curves forward, resulting in a thinner side frame that digs nicely into the palm when you hold the Axon 30 Ultra 5G.

Your eye is drawn towards the camera island at the back and with good reason. Not only has ZTE stored the image hardware in an impressive enclave, but the four lenses alone are impressive.

Three 64MP cameras cover the wide-angle camera (26 mm, equivalent), the ultra-wide angle (13 mm) and the short telephoto camera (35 mm plus digital) – an approach similar to the Galaxy S21 and S21 +, only with more optical and thus less digital zoom. Then there is an 8MP periscope that delivers 5x optical zoom.

ZTE has equipped the Axon 30 Ultra 5G with an abundance of shooting features – shoot with all three cameras at the same time, make low light portraits with long exposure light exposure, use any number of aesthetic filters that are color changing, heck there are even a Hitchcock-inspired Dolly Zoom effect.

We test all of this and more in our full review. We are particularly interested in the 35mm portrait camera, as ZTE calls it.

The rest is all flagship function as usual. The ZTE Axon 30 Ultra packs the flagship’s optional silicon, Snapdragon 888, with up to 12GB of RAM, which is an abundant 4,600 mAh battery with a blazing 66 W charge (100% in 46 minutes, announced), abundant 6.67-inch AMOLED with burning 144Hz adaptive refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate.

The Axon 30 Ultra 5G has a liquid cooling chamber that helps with sustained performance, linear vibration motors and linear dual speakers and much, much more.
