ZTE AXON 30 5G Smartphone – First Initial Review – Camera, Gaming & Benchmarks – Should you Buy?
. Now this phone brings a lot of cool features to the table, such as snapdragon 870 large 120 hertz amoled display youve got a unique under display front camera and lots lots more. Okay, holding the phone for the first time feels fairly slim and light crazy. Looking camera bump on the back lets just remove the wrapper for a closer look Music. Yeah, still love doing this. All right lets. Remove that front tray and see what accessories come in the box. So inside the first cardboard insert we have sim eject tool, paperwork and a hard clear, smartphone case, two more boxes to open inside the box. The first one has your 65 watt fast charger and a pair of 3.5 millimeter headphones, but youre also getting a usbc to headphone adapter. So that means no headphone jack on this smartphone and the second box has a simple usbc to usb c cable. Now the phone is running. Android 11, with my os 11 on top default live wallpaper, looks quite epic screen. Size is quite large at 6.92 inches the front camera is not visible at all. You can open the camera app and you still cannot see the camera so hidden. Very well within the layers is a top centered 16 megapixel selfie camera, and this is what you can expect in terms of selfie quality. So, as you can see, the selfies look. Okay, but sometimes the sun can cause some glare, making the selfies or self videos look a bit smudgy.
So as long as you get the lighting right, you can take reasonably good selfies, but i wouldnt even bother with the front facing camera for videos on the back. We have a rather crazy looking quad camera setup, so weve got a 64 megapixel primary and that is a sony. Imac 682 youve got an 8 megapixel ultra wide 5 megapixel macro and a 2 megapixel depth sensor. Now the main camera can take some pretty good. Looking shots in good lighting situations and taking low light photos in standard photo mode, also produced good results and the 8 megapixel ultra wide is not so great photos do look a little washed out with lack of detail. A bigger ultrawide sensor would have made more sense, and the 2 megapixel depth sensor is also not praiseworthy. Now, shooting 4k video is pretty stable. Although the colors look a bit over saturated okay, quick, look at the ports bottom of the phone, you have a single speaker, microphone, usb type c port and a dual 5g sim tray. This phone does not support microsd expansion. On the side. We have a single power button and volume rockers on the top. Youve got a secondary mic and on the other side we have nothing at all. Now i do like that large 6.92 amoled 120 hertz display screen res is 2400 by 1080 thats, full hd plus with 400 pixels per inch, and you do have some sort of gorilla glass protection, no idea what version now the rear of the smartphone is made from Plastic, even though it looks and feels like a glass back, and yes, it does pick up plenty of fingerprints too.
I also had a chance to play some cld mobile on very high graphics, settings and frame rate was set to max here. Is some gameplay footage? Okay, i really dont like that speaker location at the bottom. Every time you play the game, you are going to block that single speaker, giving you a muffled sound every time you play a game. If you flip, the phone around sound is, of course better, but then you will feel discomfort on your fingers, as the camera bump will now be in the back of your hands and the camera bump. Has these kind of sharpish edges so not a comfortable way to hold your phone whilst gaming? But that being said, im still happy to say that the actual gameplay and graphics look great on that large and near 7. Inch display and im loving. The fact that there is no notch and no distraction – this is a great phone for watching multimedia content and playing games. If you use headphones, bluetooth, headphones or earbuds, then no worries about blocking that bottom. Speaker, im also digging that in display fingerprint reader its fast and accurate every single time, but the face unlock is also surprisingly good, considering its an in display camera, which you cant even see, it does a pretty good job at face unlock too. So that was my unboxing and first look at the zte axon 30.. Now this video should give you an idea of what to expect from this smartphone, and my full review is of course, coming very soon after i get a chance to spend more time with it.
However, at this date it does look promising. I believe the price is around four to nine, giving you a snapdragon 870 performance, which is actually a flagship cpu and in the antutu benchmark test. I did achieve a pretty decent 701 k. Any questions feel free to fire them at me in the comments.
