I love my Axon 7. It was a truly amazing, and game-changing device. I had been eagerly awaiting its sequel: the Axon 9. Sadly, amidst all this recent controversy, I've had to consider other options. I happened upon a very good deal on the Samsung Galaxy S9+ with AT&T via Best Buy, so I jumped on it (picked it up yesterday). As we all know, Samsung is the leader in Android phones, but this is the first time I've ever had one. It's a nice phone, but I've got to tell you: Holding them side-by-side, I STILL prefer the Axon 7. ZTE really knocked it out of the park with the Axon 7! It is a tough act to follow! The screen is Beautiful, and not inexplicably curved, like the S9+ (how I wish they did a flat-screened version of it!), and software-wise, the Axon 7 is capable of many of the same things. It's amazing that a $400 phone from 2016 is holding its own against a 2018 flagship that costs more than double the price! Best phone I've ever owned, period. It's a damn shame we won't (likely) see the Axon 9. It had the potential to be a really great device. If it manages to come out, I will still be checking it out. Until then, however, I guess I'll just have to see how things go with this S9+.
