Gearbest has the Axon 7 for 265.65

This is the best price I have seen on the Axon 7, period. Gearbest is offering free shipping but it is 10-25 business days to the US, but expedited shipping is only 1.91 which is 3-10 business days. They have both the gray and the gold versions. I am unsure exactly which version as the 4G LTE bands listed are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 12, 20.

    Use coupon code 'ZTEAXON7' to bring the price to $229.99. I'm trying really hard not to buy a spare at this price (I already use the US model as my daily driver). Someone talk me out of this...

    The picture shows model A2017G. Not sure how accurate that is or not. According to GSM, here are the bands that should be available:

    LTE band 1(2100), 2(1900), 3(1800), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 19(800), 20(800), 28(700), 38(2600), 40(2300), 41(2500) - A2017G

    LTE band 1(2100), 2(1900), 3(1800), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 7(2600), 12(700), 13(700), 17(700), 20(800), 25(1900), 26(850), 29(700), 30(2300), 41(2500) - USA

    The description is odd, as the specs suggest the US version (bands supported, battery capacity, etc.), but the Q&A clearly says 'international'.

    @hollap besides the different frequencies what would people not get or get compared to the US build? If someone is using the global version in the US would they still get OTA updates. And from a feature standpoint what might be missing compared to the US version?

    I have never used any version other than the US version, so I don't really know. Other than to say I know the US version is updated more than the European version is. But I've heard good things about MiFavor 5 and themes on the Chinese version. That's all I know.

    I would not buy it to use in the USA. But that's just me. :smiley:

    This is a great price, but likely won't be the U version that they support here on this forum and might not have the same great warranty they offer here. If you buy just beware of those two things.

    its the A2017G model that GB is selling

  • PruikkiPruikki EarthPosts: 21 ✭✭✭✭✭

    BEWARE i ordered on oct 25th, its now 30/31th
    originally was supposed to ship oct 30th...

    They NOW say it will ship on "Ships between Nov 2 - Nov 14"

    so you will wait one month,then another when it ships.

    when ordering it ,they said "ships oct 30th" as i ordered it on 25th.... 5 days later
    shipping date is now one moth forward...COME ON GEARBEST! what is this BS!

    seem fishy, GB support told me i can wait,or replace to different phone...
    danger is, if 60 days pass and no phone, Paypal will not be able to help...

    they sold device,i paid, then 5 days later dispatch date changes...So they knew item is not in stock
    but still sold it...Come on! (i asked them, they said one thing and now they say everyone needs to wait one more month)

    I have never used Gearbest before, but I have heard enough bad things about them now to never attempt to use them in the future :)

    Allright, so Nov its 31/1th and gearbest changes the shipping date again from oct 14 to oct 17-30 oct

    so we need to wait one full month till they may or may not have stock...
    all we can do is wait. but paypal dispute has 45 day limit so....if its defective, nothing we can do then...

    just know, they will have it supposedly in stock approx 17th-30th of october... (few days ago they were telling oct 2-14th) and now they change it again... Well its ok, just need wait longer. thus its so affordable right now. explained

    yes im getting it for Eu, so i need G model :D
