ZTE Axon 30 Ultra 5G review: Seriously good value

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: There might be no under-display selfie camera, but for the asking price you'll soon forget about that. This ZTE is powerful and has a one super smooth 144Hz screen. However, some software notification issues irritate, and while the cameras have potential there's not great synergy between all the optics on the rear.
  • A well-priced and powerful flagship - with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 on board
  • Lovely screen - it can even handle 144Hz refresh if you want
  • Generally decent rear cameras
  • Software causes some notification issues
  • Wi-Fi not always stable
  • No under-display selfie camera
  • Battery is stretched
  • Cameras aren't subtle in delivery and zoom lens is relatively poor

ZTE Axon 30 Ultra 5G review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: The ZTE Axon 30 Ultra 5G is a high-specced phone with a great display, a good array of cameras, fantastic zoom photography capability, and a blindingly fast battery charging rate. The software still needs some refining, but the phone is a great choice for those seeking a flagship device who may not want to pay the highest price for a flagship.
  • Great specs
  • Good telephoto camera
  • Fantastic display and speakers
  • Unrefined software
  • Uncomfortable when gripped one-handed
  • Lacks under-display camera

ZTE Axon 30 Ultra review

Verdict: The ZTE Axon 30 Ultra provides a premium flagship experience at a much cheaper price than most of the competition. It may miss out on a couple of specs, but those are sacrifices we imagine many will be willing to make.
  • Incredible camera performance
  • Stunning screen
  • Svelte design
  • Great value for money
  • No wireless charging
  • No microSD slot
  • MyOS 11 could look more appealing

ZTE Axon 30 Ultra 5G review: An unexpected, but welcome, surprise

★★★★★ 3.0
It has been years since I used a ZTE phone, so when I was offered the chance to review the new ZTE Axon 30 Ultra 5G, I approached it with excitement. Why has ZTE been absent recently? Several years ago ZTE faced the wrath of the U.S. government when it was found guilty of violating sanctions against Iran, and suffered under the same restrictions as Huawei does today. The ban has long since lifted and ZTE has slowly started releasing phones in the U.S. again. I was a little concerned by how all this turbulence would affect the phone. What would it be like? I put my SIM in with the thought that it may come out again after a few days. Now, coming up to two weeks later, it’s still in there, and it’s proof ZTE has got more than just the $749 price right on the Axon 30 Ultra. Made from aluminum and glass, the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra 5G has that familiar shape seen on many high-end phones over the last few years. The edges taper to a sharp point, the screen curves down with it, and the flat glass r...
