ZTE Tempo X is an affordable all-day Android Nougat phone

There is a lot of media focus, unsurprisingly, on top of the line smartphones that have now almost reached four-digit prices. Not everyone, however, needs all the bells and whistles those expensive devices offer. Even fewer will actually be able to afford them. Some need a simple, serviceable communication device that gets the job done with little fuss and won’t die on you half way through the day. If you’re a Boost Mobile subscriber, you’re in luck because ZTE just launched the Tempo X exactly for that purpose.

ZTE Axon Multy to revive dual screen clamshell

While we still dream of the ultimate foldable smartphone-slash-tablet, someone actually already came close to a simulacrum of that fantasy. And it failed miserably. Unfazed by the fate of the Kyocera Echo, ZTE and AT&T are reportedly teaming up to take another whack at it, with a certain ZTE Axon Multy slated for October to show the world, once more, how some dreams are perhaps best left that way.

Five cheap smartphones with a fingerprint sensor (mid-2017)

Five cheap smartphones with a fingerprint sensor (mid-2017)

Modern smartphones look a bit different than ones from just a few years ago: there's the double rear cameras, of course, but more pervasive is the fingerprint sensor. A fingerprint sensor built into a phone offers a highly convenient form of security, but is also becoming an important component in making mobile payments. While a fingerprint sensor is included on all the big flagship handsets, those tend to cost $600 or more. Can you get fingerprint sensor on a (much) cheaper phone? Yes, yes you can.

ZTE nubia Z17 comes bearing Quick Charge 4+, almost not bezels

Remember the nubia Z17 mini? Launch just last April, that smartphone actually wasn't the Chinese OEM's flagship model.

Not only is the nubia Z17 making use of the hot new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, it also the first to call dibs on implementing Qualcomm's hot new Quick Charge 4.0+ tech.

ZTE Axon 7 gets a minor update with major treats

ZTE Axon 7 gets a minor update with major treats

It wasn't too long ago that ZTE finally updated its Axon 7 flagship to Android 7.0 Nougat. That was followed quickly by a 7.1.1. update, which was an unexpected but pleasant treat for owners, considering very few devices have been updated to that version. It seems that the flow of gifts hasn't ended yet and ZTE is rolling out another update. No it's not 7.1.2 and ZTE is billing it as a minor update. It has, however, some rather major features included.

Verizon HTC 10 gets Nougat, ZTE Axon 7 mini preview starts

All the new Android smartphones released this year so far, including the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, might have distracted you from one sad truth. Not all of last year's models have the joy of running Android 7.0 or 7.1.1 Nougat yet. As always, the dreaded slow-paced rollout of Android updates is keeping users from getting the latest and greatest Android version. But if you're an HTC 10 owner on Verizon's network, that painful waiting stops now. And if you own an unlocked ZTE Axon 7 Mini, it won't be long before you get your treat as well.
