    The excitement surrounding smart watches has drastically died off, with many companies throwing in the towel altogether on their wearables. Yet, ZTE has finally come out with their first smartwatch – the Android Wear 2.0 powered ZTE Quartz. The company has purposely waited to enter the smartwatch market late in the game, so that much […]

    ZTE Quartz is a Super Cheap AndroidWear 2.0 Smartwatch with 4G

    A big complaint about smartwatches thus far is that without a smartphone, they aren’t very useful.

With the Blade V8 Pro (a mouthful, indeed), ZTE is aiming squarely for the mid-range Android market, […]

    ZTE Axon 7 Mini Review

    ZTE knocked it out of the park with the Axon 7, so introducing a smaller version of the Axon 7 was the logical next step. However, not everything is the same under the hood with the Axon 7 Mini. Everything from the processor to the display have all been downgraded. Fortunately, that means that the […]

    We think the ZTE Axon 7 is one of the best smartphone deals of the year, combining top-notch specs with maybe the best smartphone speaker system and a mid-range price tag. The miniature version we saw at IFA is no slouch, either — it’s a smaller phone with mid-range specs, but it’s cheaper and still has […]

    ZTE Shrinks the AXON 7 with the AXON 7 Mini
