ZTE's 2015 phone lineup is going to be replaced in the coming months, but you can get them on the cheap right now. The Axon and Axon Pro are both on sale via Amazon for as much as $130 off. They're a little too expensive for what you get normally, but these prices are much more palatable. Read More
ZTE doesn't want to talk about the Blade V7 phone they have on the slate for Mobile World Congress, at least not yet. A promotional website has a small image and a broken link, but if you put in the URL manually, you can see the newly-announced device in all its golden mid-range glory. The V7 kind of looks like the bastard child of an iPhone and one of HTC's later One devices (sorry, ZTE, but that circle home button and custom icon theme are pretty telling), but it's none the worse for being born out of wedlock. It's hard to go wrong with an all-aluminum body, right? Read More
Partnerships between keyboard makers and smartphone manufacturers aren't new — we all remember when Samsung started using Swype's technology on its keyboard a few years ago. So it isn't a surprise to see Fleksy striking a deal with an OEM of its own, as a way to extend its reach and installation base and as a benefit to the manufacturer who won't have to waste time and resources trying to develop a fast and reliable input method.
The deal in question is with Chinese manufacturer ZTE who will start bundling Fleksy with its smartphones. This includes Fleksy's fast keyboard and correction engine as well as its recently added rich content (GIFs, stickers, and emojis) and customization features (keyboard photos, colors, and effects).

ZTE has just announced the newest entry to its Blade lineup, the Blade S7. The S7 will go on sale in Thailand and other countries across the Asia Pacific soon afterwards, and is squarely targeted at the selfie-loving segment of the population, with ZTE dubbing it its "most powerful selfie smartphone to date."
Jacky Zhang, CEO of ZTE Mobile Devices in the Asia Pacific, claims ZTE wanted to create a device "that takes the selfie experience to a new level," and they have arguably delivered on that promise. The Blade S7 features a 13-megapixel front-facing camera with a flash and phase detection autofocus, which can be used to take full advantage of the 14 different "beautification" options available.

It's on sale right now at Amazon, but this is a Lightning Deal. That means you don't have time to wait around if you want the get the ZTE Axon Pro for $319.99 ($80 off). Read More
ZTE is trying to become more than a maker of entry-level and white label smartphones. The Axon is certainly the nicest phone ZTE has ever made, but it's more expensive than its other phones too. The company is hoping to appeal to budget-conscious buyers with a new device financing option, which should be live for all its products very soon. The catch? It's stupid-expensive. Read More
The ZTE AXON Pro arrived in the US on August 1st, and similar options appeared elsewhere last month, giving smartphone buyers a chance to own a 5.5" screen with a Snapdragon 810 and 4GB of RAM for $450. Now the manufacturer has launched a smaller version of the device, the ZTE AXON Mini, in China. It's joined by the AXON Watch, which doesn't come with Android Wear. And while it's not available yet, ZTE announced that the larger AXON Max is on its way.
The AXON Mini is smaller, not small. You still get a 5.2" display, one that will offer pressure-sensitive touch. Read More
After making its debut at IFA earlier this month, the ZTE Axon Elite is now available for purchase. eBay links are available for several countries across Europe, and there's a global link for most everywhere else in the world, excluding the US and Canada. Those two countries already have the similar Axon Pro, and the Axon Elite lacks the necessary bands.
The ZTE Axon Elite is a slick metal device that sports a 5.5-inch full HD display with Corning’s Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass (intended to keep things less gross). The inside is packed with a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage (along with a microSD slot). Read More

Like its predecessor, the ZMAX 2 tries to offer some more premium features while keeping the price reasonable. This one is even cheaper, though. Read More
