    The ASUS ZenFone 5Q was just released. Looks like a viable replacement for the Axon 7. However, now that ZTE is back in business I can patiently wait for the next generation Axon since my 7's still working flawlessly.

    Interesting. With a SD 630 and 3300 Mah battery it should have pretty great stamina. Not sure if you saw the announcement a couple days ago, but the US Congress drafted an amendment to the defense spending bill that would block the ZTE deal so they're not out of the woods yet unless Trump is willing to veto the defense bill.

    This Sony XA2 Ultra, with the SD 630 and 3580 mAh battery is just killer on battery life. And I haven't noticed any performance issues with the kind stuff I use it for. This is my test/in between phone while I wait and see what happens with ZTE and the rest of the smartphone market. Not a notch fan. First experience with a 6xx series chipset, and I am quite impressed. I am loving the battery life.

    Good feedback since I have never used a SD 600 series phone myself. My work pays for my phones so I'm limited to phones offered via ATT, but I have friends and family that would be perfectly happy with a mid-range phone so I'm always keeping track to see if something good comes around.

    @kidnova Interesting, I did not hear about that amendment to the bill.

    Would they like you get unlocked, provided it has the right bands for ATT? Lots more options in the unlocked market.

    No, they have to order it through their corporate account which is why I've basically gone from one Samsung flagship to the next. I don't mind the Samsung phones so it's no big deal to me, but I love keeping up to date on all of the available option.

    Can't stand notches, so I swapped for an LG V30+ and couldn't be happier.

    @Mach1na I'm with you on the notch. Is your LG a US or international model? What was the cost? My Axon 7 was $400. I'm curious if it's a viable replacement cost wise.

    I don't know in USD, but I got mine from Wondamobile for £467. Yes its probably more expensive than the Axon 7, but I could no longer put up with the awful bluetooth on 7.1.1, and with no sight of an official Oreo rom I had to swap.

    As soon as I got the V30+ I realised how much I missed wireless charging. :D

    I use the dual sim active feature and after dropping the phone and breaking it, was going to just try something different. I found out how slim the picking were for dual sim active phones that were of this quality and after much research, headed over to Swappa and got another Axon 7!

    I recommend you the honor 7x it is a cheep phone (200ish) and it preform well. Good camera, good processor, and good display for it's price.

    Best deal I've seen lately was last Sunday. Amazon had the Huawei Mate 10 Pro 64GB (US ver) unlocked for $428.

    I know some will shy away because of the brand. But if Huawei is a decent company they will honor any US warranty on their products. You may have to ship it back to Huawei for warranty work but that isn't any different than ZTE.

    That was an amazing deal on the Mate 10 Pro but I think we'll see more. Odds are high that Huawei built a ton of them for the At&t postpaid release.
