Since a 5-inch display has been considered small for a long time, users looking for a phone must focus on the thickness and weight of devices instead. To that end, the ZTE Axon 11 may be just what you are looking for.

With its 6.47 inch display, the ZTE Axon 11 is a "normal" sized smartphone by today's standards. But what sets the Android phone apart from the competition is its light weight. At only 165 grams, it is very light in the hand while still feeling solid, making it much easier to carry around all day than heavier devices. Further, since some users do not want to carry an expensive device around  or spend a lot of money on a phone, the low price of around 350 euros is another benefit.

The rest of the phone's features are also useful for everyday life. The out-of-date Mediatek Helio P70 SoC is still well suited for most applications and, in conjunction with 6 GB of RAM, allows Android to run well. The internal memory is also generously sized at 128 GB, which can make it easier to look beyond the mediocre write and read rates.

The AMOLED panel and the camera of the Axon 11 deserve a special mention for their good color display and rendering. Since the display has good brightness, the impressive performance of the main camera can easily be seen. The front camera also shines with high detail reproduction. Big weaknesses are only noticeable in the wide angle and zoom photos, which may or may not bother users depending upon their preferences.

Users who are looking for a cheap and everyday smartphone should take a closer look at the ZTE Axon 11. Our review provides more insights into this smartphone.
