ZTE's dual-screen folding smartphone looks, runs and feels like nothing else on the market. But when it comes to smartphones, more isn't always better.

ZTE’s ambitious dual-screen phone shouldn't exist
Look, I appreciate that ZTE really went for it, especially in a year when the hottest trend has been making screens a tiny bit wider and bezels a tiny bit smaller. But for $725, the Axon M isn’t something any sane person should buy.
A vision of the future
ZTE has done an admirable job with the Axon M, especially for a first gen device. But we’re even more excited for a second gen Axon M which we hope will be thinner, sporting a better camera, rocking borderless displays and running less buggy software.
An entirely unique handset in today's market of slim slates
The ZTE Axon M is a curious beast of a phone. There's no question ZTE attempted to pull off something ambitious here, and yet I don't think it quite succeeded.Read full review
This foldable phone falls flat
The Axon M is ideal for those moments when you absolutely need to multitask. But most of the time, it's simply not as fast and doesn't last as long, feel as comfortable to use or take pictures as well as similarly priced flagships from Samsung or Google.Read full review
It is a bit half-baked

This isn’t the worst effort ZTE could have made, although it is a bit half-baked, and the Axon M falls short in key areas. Unfortunately, software is the one of the most deficient areas of the M.

A unique dual screen phone optimized for multi-tasking
The ZTE Axon M is clearly a unique smartphone with the two displays. ZTE has done a good job of building a solid smartphone that performed flawlessly for me. This wasn't easy considering there are different screen modes to manage.Read full review
Between the hacked-together software execution and the overall lack of productive application for it, it’s hard to look at the Axon M as anything more than a fun gimmick.
The weirdest smartphone I've ever tried
The Axon M is, for a folding screen phone, surprisingly well executed in some ways. Performance is generally pretty good, if not amazing. ZTE has clearly worked hard to make sure the software experience doesn't make you want to tear your hair out (even if the hardware does).
Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.
