[HK Stock][Official Global Version]ZTE Nubia Z17 Lite 5.5 Inch Smartphone 6GB 64GB 13.0MP Dual Rear Camera Snapdragon 653 Octa Core Android 7.1 NFC QC3.0 Metal Body - Black Gold @ Geekbuying now £135.07

Don't know much about Geekbuying, so I'm not sure whether you'll have to pay import duties etc (from HongKong) However, I think this phone is quite unusual value for the price. Wi… Read more

I have the global version of the M2 and that has the Play Store so why doesn't this? That phone has 4GB RAM, a slower processor, no NFC and is still on Marshmallow so I wish I'd waited for this one. Although this phone will probably be stuck on Android 7.1 forever as ZTE are indeed terrible for updates. Though the deal from the Italy warehouse is probably better at only £3 more as import duties from Hong Kong will be more than that. EDIT: The review posted above makes it sound like the global version does have Play Store.


It seems it's possible to install Google Play and then Google aps see: https://forum.xda-developers.com/nubia-z17/how-to/how-to-unlock-bootloader-flash-twrp-t3636861 and https://www.theandroidsoul.com/download-nougat-gapps-7-0/ But I understand :) this only gives you access to a restricted number of google aps. It never occurred to me that there could be phones without the Google version of Android for phones (which Google own) I saw this as disadvantageous, you would not have access to a lot of common and very cheap/free aps. But actually, if you think that Google is already too intrusive, then it is advantageous! OTOH, you are in the hands of ZTE for updates and security.


ZTE were banned for not keeping to their agreement for 7 years from using US technology eg Qualcomm after being caught selling to N Korea, Iran, etc. Trump was asked to help resolve this situation as ZTE would have gone bust or used CPUs from other manufacturers. Recently in context of Trump being asked to help, a Court order was ruled to prevent any reduction of the 7 year ban by the US Administration. But, here is a news report mentioning progress. ZTE Fined $1 Billion: Deal Reached With U.S. Administration To Lift Ban - Gizmochina gizmochina.com/2018/06/08/zte-fined-1-billion-deal-reached-with-u-s-administration-to-lift-ban/ In summary, there would be a Compliance team checking that ZTE wouldnt be doing anything dodgy through inhouse inspections (from my understanding).


There is an asian version presumably for the Chinese market, this is the 'global version' it would be very annoying if google play didn't work with it agreed. I've tried to chat with them about this but they're probably all sleep :)


Not strictly true, but anyone who is even casually aware of ZTE knows that the Axon 7 and 7 Mini have had updates and Oreo is just around the corner - the Lineage OS version (from https://www.reddit.com/r/Axon7/comments/8ovghe/unofficial_lineageos_151_released/ ) is ready, at least. The Axon Elite, which my sister has, definitely didn't/won't get updates, though. Edit: As the Nubia Z17 has a Global ROM I'd assume you'd be relying on xda for updates - there are Z17 ROMs, not sure about the Lite, but plenty to explore anyway https://forum.xda-developers.com/nubia-z17/development

There was this Axon 7 Mini ebay Deal (£59.99-£99.99 depending on grade - came with official ZTE QuickCharge Adapter* and USB-C Cable - this Deal's lack of accessories may be a pain) and I went for the best version as I was gifting it to mum. Waited 10 days or so for the screen protectors and case to arrive from Aliexpress - and then she breaks her arm (she wants to use a phone that's familiar whilst she still has one usable arm, so she's still with her Moto G3!) :) There are battery health/cycle rating apps on Play Store but I've never really used any - AccuBattery is one I've heard of but recommendations would be welcome! *The ZTE UK Adapter is difficult to source, it was for me, anyway. For obvious reasons you have to be careful which USB-C Cable you buy.


looked OK for the price as has almost everything i wanted but: refurb handset only usb type-c 18 months old and i doubt they have put a new original battery so it will have deteriorated over that time. 1080p screen with <2700 mAh battery (which is now 18 months old) = low battery life and not fun using it day to day.


wow nice phone for the price https://www.gsmarena.com/zte_axon_7_mini-8232.php

I have the latest Axon 7 Mini firmware (I anticipated ZTE imploding and wiping all their download links, as I saw the warnings on Reddit) - I'll bung it on OneDrive or wherever if anyone wants it :) Edit: Actually, there's instructions how to update to 7.1.1 on this thread! (Oops, I see the OP has mentioned it already). Geez, the 7.1.1 update seems to keep stopping at 24%. Tried doing it via Recovery (hold down Power + Volume Up for a few seconds), and on the SD card, will keep at it. And I've realised there's no SIM Tool in the box either - no problem as I have one already, may be a pain for some purchasers. Another Edit: Doing it in sequence (via Recovery, with the .zip file in the root folder. The .zip files are in three separate parts) seems to be working, phew.


It's for my mum. She's a rather light user of phones, a bit of Facebook and phone calling, that's about it. She'll be moving on from a Motorola G3 (8GB) so hopefully it'll be an improvement. Even though she doesn't have many apps, she's been complaining about storage warnings - which happens over time with Android anyway.


But sadly they have such poor battery life that i had to return it ..tell us your experience about battery life after using it but it was giving maximum 3 hour screen on time Btw i paid £70 and it was pristine condition not a single mark or scratch on it


I had the 7 big one, and my charger cable was white, can't make that out if its the same cable from your photo however

Forget about bans, ZTE is about to go bust as they've announced that they're ceasing global operations. Their own fault really for deliberately breaking US sanctions and selling tech to Iran, North Korea etc. https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2018/05/the-trump-administration-just-forced-smartphone-maker-zte-to-shut-down/


So with all the ZTE bans coming in, does this have band 20?


Oh right, this must be fake news, not. Sent from my South Korean phone.


Oh dear, national security risk for using equipment made by manufacturers from another county? What a flipping joke. What equipment exactly does this country produce? Are American/Japanese/Germany/Korean parts or equipment used? BTW, haven't you heard there is an economic war going on right now between US and China?

China's ZTE 'poses risk to UK security'


You're right it was the 6. But most reviews said it was better than the 7.


Forget that, the Ultra 7 was made by Alcatel. It was the Ultra 6 was ZTE and that was mediocre.


Does it have good reception and WiFi sensitivity? By far the most sensitive phone I ever had was a Vodafone ultra 7 made by ZTE; way better than Sony or Samsung flagships.


Which is better or are they the same this or the mi a1 xiaomi

Got mine it was sealed


I got the £30 discount for signing up, brought it down to £20 more expensive than @Gearbest1 at least a UK based company will actually deliver the item, I'll be waiting at least another month to recoup my funds from @Gearbest1 via a PayPal dispute!


As you know Louise I have the axon 7. I also purchased the Mini 7 and to be honest leaving aside memory and gaming I think it is just as good in use. I did the you tube reviewer style thing of loading both with the same apps and set them side by side doing speed tests and also loaded some benchmark apps. The 7 won all the benchmarks by a long way (one of the best cell phones available) but side by side using non gaming apps there is hardly any difference between them in real world application. The mini which is actually not mini at all is for me easier to hold and to my eyes looks more stylish too because of the slightly smaller size. I recommend it. It was £60 cheaper on Gearbest than this Very price though.

Not quite as cheap, but you can currently get the Mini for £94.83 with code HNYEAR134 - but I'd buy the "big" Axon 7, every time, if I had to choose. (from https://couponsfromchina.com/tag/axon/ )


One for the big spenders amongst us - Axon 7 Mini tempered glass screen protector for a princely 25p (with 20% deducted at Checkout)! https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B01F3Z6258/sr=/qid=/ref=olp_tab_used?ie=UTF8 Warehouse is notoriously flakey but worth a punt - I've bought a few protectors from there recently.


From the Axon 7 thread (kudos to shedloads) https://www.hotukdeals.com/comments/permalink/32497700 more coupons for both this and the Mini, takes this phone under £100. Be aware Gearbest sometimes enable and disable codes at random, so keep trying if it doesn't work! shedloads 9 m ago Some more coupons here... AXON7MINIGB brings that down to just £99 brings it down to the same price as the App was last week at £168. Start a new account to get some points and use quidco/topcashback and you are getting a seriously good deal YLAXON7 brings (the Axon 7) down to the same price as the App was last week at £168 As ever, you have to sign in before you can add the coupon code. I can see a few US reviewers saying the Mini has a Nougat update, and UK users can update too. https://forum.xda-developers.com/axon-7-mini/help/update-zte-b2017g-v1-0-0b12-ota-question-t3627620


Just a heads up for people not up to speed on the cpu/soc side of things. This has a sd 617 which is pretty slow by todays standards..@45000 antutu.


Differences between the Axon 7 and Axon 7 Mini: TL;DR (or "didn't watch" :p ) Both have dual-speakers, front 8MP cameras, USB-C, same aluminium chassis, rear 16MP camera/full HD video on the Mini, 20MP camera/4K video on the bigger brother. 5.2" FHD screen vs 5.5" QHD on the Axon 7 (AMOLED for both). Both have dual LED flash and fingerprint readers. Snapdragon 617 Octa-Core RAM/3GB RAM/32GB internal memory on the Mini, Snapdragon 820 Quad-Core CPU/4GB RAM/64GB internal memory on the Axon 7. The Mini has a 2705mAh battery, QC 2.0, the Axon 7 3250mAh, QC 3.0. Both have Dolby enhanced audio via headphones. Weak points for the Mini are the processor and the battery, so bear that in mind. Camera isn't spectacular either. Looks from the video that the Axon Mini actually has the software (on-screen) Recent Tasks/Home/Back buttons - whereas the Axon 7 has capacitive buttons but they don't light up - which many people hate.

I understand. Although, just in case you didn't know, when you remove apps from the desktop/screens by putting them into the bin, it's just a recycle bin for the screens. It doesn't actually uninstall the app from the phone. Not sure if you knew this already but thought I'd mention this anyway. Thanks again for your help.


I might buy another one!


Most of it through the Play Store, some I could just do straight from the screen by placing them into the Bin


Okay, thanks for that. How did you take off the bloatware? Was it a forced uninstall via settings app?


I got a SIM with a new mobile number with the £10 top up with Vodafone, I might just use it myself for a month and throw away. I thought about selling on ebay, but then I couldn't be bothered with the hassle, not sure how the SIM is registered to me, but just don't want to take the chance. I think if you went into the store, you might be able to avoid the top up.When I collected it they asked me if I wanted a SIM card and I said I wouldn't mind it as I've already bought it. :D

As if! http://thehill.com/policy/technology/388791-senate-panel-overwhelmingly-approves-amendment-blocking-trump-on-zte A Senate panel on Tuesday rebuked President Trump's efforts to ease sanctions on the Chinese telecom firm ZTE, which the intelligence community and trade regulators have warned poses a national security risk for the U.S. The Senate Banking Committee approved an amendment in an overwhelming and bipartisan 23-2 vote that would block Trump from easing sanctions on ZTE without first certifying to Congress that the company is complying with U.S. law.
