Hello folks, as many of you should know, the Axon 7 is getting Android 8.0 Oreo! According to ZTE Germany it should happen around April 2018. So there's still time for us, the users to request any type of change we would like ZTE make to the Axon 7 in the coming update. Any feedback could make a great improvement.
The purpose is that every idea that could be taken into account for improving the Axon 7, could be posted in order to get the ZTE Team of Engineers to address our issues and suggestions.
This is mine and hope you post your own.
Hello ZTE Team,
Thank you very much for all the update support you've been given to the Axon 7, although being not an $800 phone or the latest phone from ZTE. It is really nice to know that there's still a company that cares so much about the customer and not only selling the products, because the Axon 7 was the best phone for the price and having that much features added along the way, like Daydream is really pleasing for me as a ZTE cusotmer. Now that the phone is shortly receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update and since you asked for a little feedback to make changes into the coming update, I'd like to give you mine as a user from the US version (A2017U) since a year ago.
The LG V30 came with a very nice features for audiophile users, and since the Axon 7 is an audio-oriented device, I think it's worth it and very simple one; the phone has like 32 volume steps from the mute to the full volume, this means that we can adjust the volume in an even more precise way to enjoy the amazing DAC and amplifier the Axon is equipped with.
Before buying the Axon 7, I had a Nexus 6, the stock android UX is wonderful, believe me. Thankfully, the Axon 7 isn't that far, just one comment with that respect is the quick settings menu (above the notification area) it would be great if you could just leave stock android in that place rather that putting a menu that lakcs animations and the versatility that the stock quick settings menu has, of course, leave the shortcuts to Dolby Atmos and all those features, but use the stock template.
MyVoice app. I think it's completely useless taking into account that Google Assistant exist (Since I got the phone, I disabled it), it uses memory, storage and makes more complicated the UI and UX so its better without myvoice.
Calendar, Clock, Messaging, Dialer, Contacts; all these apps are great in the Axon 7, but trust me, ask anyone and they will tell you that they prefer the stock Calendar, Clock, Messaging, Dialer, Contacts apps that Google develops. Its a waste of resources that the manufacturers develop their own apps that would do the same as Google's, when they can focus those resources into something better like optimization or useful features or something like that. HTC used to do that, but since last year, they realized that it was a waste and that everyone prefers Google's apps for design, features, constant updates, storage capacity, simple yet complete UX and UI; so they loaded all they phones with just stock apps and without any duplicate apps like it used to happen in some phones. So, ZTE Team, don't waste your time building apps that are already built and very well, you just have to make a few adjustments and it'll work on the Axon 7 flawlessly. Don't try to reinvent the wheel.
PS. If you keep the apps in the Axon 7 Oreo update, then try to implement some animations and Material Design philosophy as those apps from ZTE lack any type of animation and material design. It makes a huge difference in the experience because those apps look like they were built for Android 4.0.
Hope this feedback of the last year of having the Axon 7 comes in handy and hope you address these concerns as they are coming from a customer.
