You can be forgiven if you didn’t manage to get yourself a nice smartphone during the discount-jammed Christmas holiday shopping season. We know how hectic it can get, but now that it’s gone, it doesn’t mean you can’t get even much better deals on great smartphones out there.
For a period of well over a month now, the ZTE Axon 7 Mini has been selling at a huge discount and apparently, this is nowhere near ending. The phone is something you’ve probably never heard of, but you’ll for sure love it. There great sound, decent hardware specs, a clean software pack and even better after-sales support. But you know what? This will only cost you $200.
The ZTE Axon 7 Mini has been discounted at two major shops – Newegg and Best Buy. At Newegg, you can buy yourself a new Axon 7 Mini that is platinum gray in color and part with $199.98. For those who prefer the ion gold color variant, you’ll have to visit Best Buy and get at about the same price of $199.99.
There is no mention of the date when this offer will end. But it is better to take advantage of it before it ends because this is indeed a great phone. Just as a reminder, the ZTE Axon 7 Mini has a 5.2-inch AMOLED screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and 424ppi pixel density. Under the hood, the premium-built Axon 7 Mini packs a speedy Snapdragon 617 octa-core that is clocked at a speed of 1.5GHz. This is paired with an Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB RAM. You also get 32GB of onboard storage that can be expanded via a microSD card slot.
The back of the ZTE Axon 7 Mini has a 16MP snapper with an aperture of f/1.9 and dual-tone LED flash. The front snapper has an 8MP sensor with a slightly smaller aperture of f/2.2. You get excellent sound from the dual stereo speaker that features Dolby ATMOS Digital Surround. To keep the phone alive is a 2705mAh battery that is charged via a USB-C port that supports Quick Charge 2.0 technology.
The phone also comes with a fingerprint scanner, LTE support and is compatible with GSM carriers such as T-Mobile and AT&T. There is Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, though Nougat should be on its way to the device sooner than later.
