The ZTE Axon 30 5G has a 6.92-inch AMOLED display that features a Full HD+ resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate. It impressed us in the test with an accurate color reproduction and permanent DC dimming. However, the maximum display brightness is much lower than that of the competition.
The ZTE smartphone also makes a strong impression when it comes to performance. The Snapdragon 870 is not only very up to date, but it also provides compelling performance. The Axon device also comes with improved UFS 3.1 storage, which can also be expanded via a microSD card.
The 4,200 mAh battery offers good battery life, and it can be recharged very quickly with the included 65-watt power adapter. This is done via the fast USB 3.2 port, but not wirelessly, unfortunately.
The new under-display camera (UDC) is barely visible, and it has been improved in terms of quality, but it's unable to be entirely satisfactory in terms of imaging performance. The same applies to the quad-camera setup on the back, which has a 64 MP sensor from Sony at its core. It's not always able to use its autofocus correctly. We hope to see more improvements from ZTE in this regard.
Still, ZTE offers an exciting alternative with the Axon 30 5G that can impress with a comprehensive package and that hardly suffers from any real weaknesses.
As a child I was fascinated by my Commodore 16, and this sparked my enthusiasm for computers. Using my first modem, I surfed the BTX videotext system and later the World Wide Web. I have always been captivated by the latest technologies, and this is especially true for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. I’ve been part of the Notebookcheck team since 2013 and have also on occasion written for Notebookinfo.de, and I’m looking forward to testing new innovations for our readers. I like to spend my spare time indulging in photography and barbecues and being with my family.
I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
