ZTE wants your help to design a 'crowdsourced' smartphone

If you've been a smartphone user for any length of time, you've probably thought that you could design a smartphone better than those hacks who had the gall to put the headphone jack on the top/bottom (delete whichever is inappropriate). Well now you can! Sort of. Chinese manufacturer ZTE is putting out press for "Project CSX," a program that will design products based on input from a community of users. The home of the project is over on the company's official forums.

ZTE Axon 7 available for purchase today at $400, ships August 17th

ZTE's latest attempt at breaking into the premium smartphone market is the Axon 7, and it's available for pre-order today. You have to drop $399.98 to secure your Axon 7, which offers some rather high-end specs for that price. One catch, you'll have to wait a few weeks to actually get your phone.

[Deal Alert] Pre-order the ZTE Axon 7 64GB from B&H for $400, get free Samsung Level U headphones and $75 gift card

[Deal Alert] Pre-order the ZTE Axon 7 64GB from B&H for $400, get free Samsung Level U headphones and $75 gift card

The ZTE Axon 7 was announced to much "fanfare" at the end of May with famous pianist Lang Lang endorsement, BMW Designworks input, and Dolby Atmos surround sound. Sure, that's a lot of talk that means next to nothing to most of us, so I'll switch to a language we all understand: Snapdragon 820, 5.5" QHD display, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, USB-C, 20MP rear camera, and 3250mAh battery. Better? Alright.

The phone went up for pre-order last week for $400, an arguably nice price for what you're getting. But what if I told you that you could get it for more than $100 less at B&H?

[Deal Alert] ZTE Axon Pro on sale for $299.99 with free $75 B&H gift card and clear case

While it wasn't the best device, last year's ZTE Axon Pro was a big step up for a company that was mainly known for making cheap phones for prepaid carriers. The price has come down in recent months, and now B&H has it on sale for $299.99 ($50 off) with some extras. It's still pretty solid for that price.

ZTE Announces The Axon 7's BMW Design And Endorsement From Pianist, Oh And Also A Phone

ZTE Announces The Axon 7's BMW Design And Endorsement From Pianist, Oh And Also A Phone

Is a key point of consideration for your next smartphone whether or not it has been endorsed by a world-renowned pianist? Great! The all-new ZTE Axon 7 is, in fact, endorsed by world-renowned pianist Lang Lang. This apparently has some sort of value. The Axon 7 also received design input from BMW's Designworks (yes, that BMW, the one that makes cars), audio consulting from a team of music conservatory professors (I am not making this up), and Dolby's Atmos surround sound. This phone is a veritable partnership tour de farce.

Creative Wants To Ban Most Android Phones From US Over Alleged Patent Infringement

Creative is not a name you hear as often in consumer electronics these days. The Singapore-based firm is known for making audio products, including the Zen line of media players.

It wants them all banned, but what it really wants is money.

ZTE Is Rolling Out Marshmallow To The Axon Pro

ZTE spent the last few years building low-cost devices for carriers, but 2015 saw the release of the Axon Pro. This phone had flagship specs and a pretty nice build of almost-stock Android. ZTE promised it would keep this phone up to date, and it's following through with a Marshmallow OTA. It took a little longer than expected, but you can grab the update now.
