Get great smartphone sound at a low price w/ ZTE’s Axon 7 Mini for $200 (Reg. $300)


If you’re looking for a smartphone at a budget price with great-sounding dual front-facing speakers, you should check out the ZTE Axon 7 Mini 4G LTE 32GB Memory Smartphone (unlocked) in Ion Gold for $199.99 shipped at Best Buy. Also at Newegg in Gray. That’s the lowest price we could find and a match for the lowest price we’ve seen for this phone that was just announced a few months ago

Besides some full-bodied speakers (especially at this price point), the ZTE Axon 7 Mini also packs a lot of power into a small package. You get a pair of cameras at 16MP and 8MP for the rear and front, respectively, a Snapdragon 617 processor, a fingerprint sensor, and a FHD 5.2-inch AMOLED display. As for its software, you get a customized version of Android Marshmallow. 37 Amazon customers gave the phone a rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars.

Full specs:

  • GSM / 4G LTE Capable
  • North American Variant
  • Rear 16MP Camera + 8MP Front
  • f/1.9 Sapphire Lens
  • 1.5 GHz Snapdragon 617 Octa-Core CPU
  • 32GB Storage Capacity + 3GB of RAM
  • 5.2″ AMOLED Touchscreen Display
  • FHD 1920 x 1080 Resolution
  • Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS)
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow

A more mainstream alternative at this same price would be the Moto G4, which is probably better in the software department but can’t beat the Axon 7 Mini in specs. That phone packs lesser cameras, half the storage space, and less RAM at the same price. You can probably find the Moto G4 at a better price if you keep it locked here at 9to5Toys, or you can save $50 by opting for an ad-supported model at Amazon.
