Reviews for the ZTE Axon 20 5G

ZTE Axon 20 5G Review World's First Under Display Selfie Camera!
Source: TechTablets English

ZTE Axon 20 5G Camera review: Reasonable in good light
Source: DxOMark English
Crucially for those looking for all the bells and whistles of a quad-cam smartphone, the Axon 20 5G is disappointing for bokeh, telephoto zoom, and night photos. While 4K at 60 fps capture with effective stabilization is a nice draw for video enthusiasts, slow autofocus and exposure instabilities make the device difficult to recommend highly for video. More casual shooters, happy with a consistent and stable device that shoots reasonable quality standard or ultra-wide stills in good lighting, will be more at ease with the ZTE Axon 20 5G’s performance.

ZTE Axon 20 5G Selfie review: Under-display front camera
Source: DxOMark English
ZTE’s ambitious under-display design for the front camera of the Axon 20 5G is esthetically impressive, but anyone who cares about selfie performance enough to read a review like this should probably look elsewhere. The performance compromises required to realize this design lead to seriously sub-par imaging when measured by nearly any metric. However, users who don’t care about the front camera at all should still consider this phone, as it appears to be a solid offering in other respects, and the hidden selfie cam is a neat trick for people who might use it only rarely.

65% ZTE Axon 20 5G review: The first under-display camera has too many drawbacks
Source: Neowin English
Before I got to try this phone, and with no prior experience with ZTE, I kind of expected this to be a phone that focuses exclusively on doing one thing and fails at everything else. That isn't really the case, though. I was really happy with the performance, battery life, and the overall quality of the display and sound. ZTE gets a lot of the basics right, and on top of that, it adds the unique proposition of an under-display camera, and all of that costs about as much as you'd expect a phone with these specs to cost. You're not charged a ludicrous amount of money for a poorly implemented innovation.

Early adopters will probably enjoy the novelty of the ZTE Axon 20 5G, but the compromises to the selfie camera, face unlock, and display quality make this hard to recommend to most – though if you really never take selfies, you may find the large screen and solid spec sheet enough to win you over.

ZTE Axon 20 5G: World's first under-screen selfie camera underperforms
Source: CNet English
ZTE raced to be first to release a mass-produced phone, the Axon 20 5G, with an under-display camera. But being first doesn't equate to stellar camera performance.

Someone has to be the first, and in this case, it's the Axon 20 5G. A phone with a first-gen tech that makes it really cool and also disappointing at the same time. The issue is that the under-display selfie cam is too blurry and not up to the standards in 2020. There's also a visible square where the camera is located, but we can let that one pass as it's barely visible.

80% ZTE Axon 20 5G review: Is the under-screen camera the future?
Source: Pocket Lint English
It might be an outlier, as a little-known brand in the West, but this ZTE is a nod to the future, showing off a convincing under-screen camera, while delivering a long-lasting and ample performance in a fairly affordable package. It's in the details - autobrightness adjustment, frame-like screen bezel, and so-so cameras overall - where it sometimes misses the mark.

70% ZTE Axon 20 5G review: The first phone with under-display camera underwhelms
Source: Tom's Guide English
Overall, we prefer the Google Pixel 4a 5G because of its better cameras. And spending a little more money will net you the excellent OnePlus Nord, which is a pretty big step-up in UX and photography quality from the Axon 20 5G. Despite ZTE's impressive party trick, there are a few too many caveats to make this Android phone a top pick.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


ZTE:
