ZTE’s first Axon 30 Series phone is an Ultra member. It’s just as good a flagship with a Snapdragon 888 chipset, three 64MP shooters and a fourth 13MP periscope telephoto camera as well as a large 144Hz AMOLED screen.
We have already published our written review and now the video version is also on our YouTube channel.
The Axon 30 Ultra certainly looks like that part with its slim, thin body. It may lack features like IP68 certification or wireless charging, but as Will mentions in the video, this helps the price get a little lower compared to other flagships.
144Hz refresh rate is of rather limited use – only the user interface uses it, and all games are actually limited to 120Hz.
The Axon 30 Ultra comes with ZTE’s own MyOS 11 on top of Android 11, and it looks pretty clean and stores beyond the messages. There are minor changes and improvements that can be turned off if they bother you in any way.
One of the main selling points for this phone is the camera setup. However, our tests have determined that the performance is slightly above average, which is not quite what you would expect with this kind of impressive hardware.
The verdict is still clear – yes, the phone lacks some flagship features, such as. A microSD slot, but in the end it only costs $ 749 or $ 849. And that’s a compromise that many would like to take.
