ZTE Axon 7

So this device supports all the bands! How likely will this get officially whitelisted by Sprint once it is shipping?

Since it has full CDMA band classes and, LTE bands, there shouldnt be any reason why Sprint would not support the phone. They support other devices that have full CDMA. nexus moto x pure.

It would look favorably for Sprint , because as it stands they have the least available phone options. No need to house stock just simply allow access.

I agree.  Sprint also needs to allow unlocked phones like this, the Nexus series, and Moto X Pure to be used on Boost Mobile while they're at it.

Agreed. I use Boost. I have thought about switching carrier's cause their to restrictive on prepaid phones. The Moto x pure or Samsung 7 edge even note phones are what I'd like to upgrade to but, sprint doesn't allow thos on Boost.

The Axon 7 has become my replacement device for the Vivo Xplay5 Elite I wanted and still would like to have if there was a reliable source I could get it from. Already the Axon 7 appears to be the smartphone the HTC 10 should have been, with the Axon 7's dual front facing speakers, Super AMOLED display, and a 32-bit AKM dac/amp system ZTE actually names the audio system they are using here. I'm a bit disappointed ZTE isn't using ESS for the audio, though AKM is very good too, and makes the Axon 7 a more practical choice than having to carry around a separate headphone amp/dac along.

Any price points on this device?  Software updates are the only big issue I see here

 

The starting price is around $450. I've been active posting over at the ZTE Z-community, which seems like a really great forum community. I expect more information about the ZTE Axon 7 will be posted over there. The device seems quite nice from what the discussion has been about it on the ZTE site.

Disappointing the company behind this product is unreliable and have posted photoshopped images of its products in advertisements showing the device to have an edge AMOLED display when it does not. Also, there have been several delays and lies about its various contests/giveaways, and promotions through its online website. ZTE really ought to be avoided.

    • It’s a neat and seemingly valid / effective strategy that, at least from my understanding, is only really used by VZW
    • Those are usually left over from the initial AWS deployment, so all run B13/B66 with support for BC0/BC1 (although that’s been shut off on most sites). No NR. Sites with the later Ericsson radios got an OTA update and broadcast B2. On those sites, a B5 OTA update was also available (and tested), but ultimately rolled back. Putting up all that power/spectrum severely degraded the B13 output.  The site atop Crystal Mountain is another story and uses the same setup as the site on the ridge near Neilton. These antennas were selected for their vertical beamwidth. Most modern directional antennas have small vertical beamwidths and would require extreme downtilt to cover the road next to a steep ridge. Thus, they would have a severely limited coverage footprint beyond the road. Omnis can be a better choice in these instances, especially when there’s LoS to the coverage objective (since they’ll generally have lower gain figures). Omnis also don’t run in to the horizontal sector edge problem, which can be difficult to optimize for with directional antennas that have complex or irregular 3D gain profiles. That’s why on a lot of sites on mountains, you’ll see wider antennas used. For example, the Verizon site on Joyce Ridge has three sectors with 80-degree HBW antennas. 
    • Do you know what RAN is behind those Omni's? LTE (bands?) are they pushing any NR through them? Very curious   edit: I guess I could check cellmapper etc but you might know more nuance!
    • N41 here has been expanded from 140Mhz to 180Mhz.  Speeds seem the same so they just need to work on backhaul
    • I noticed today that T-mobile has shut of B41 LTE in the Louisville area and widened the 2nd n41 carrier to 80MHz. That just leaves them with 5x5 B12, 10x10 B2, and two 10x10 B66 carriers on LTE, everything else is in NR (besides their 2G network). They have 20x20 n71, 20x20 n25, 5x5 n25, and 180MHz n41.
