The ban has been lifted already, and the host is up again - so WHEN will MiFavor 5.2 (Oreo) be released for OTA in the U.S.? My phone (and many others) has been stuck on 4.2 since BEFORE THAT BAN!!! It is time to step up and re-establish YOUR COMMITMENT to the support of YOUR DEVICES.
I still love my ZTE Axon 7 (and Axon 7 Mini) - BUT now that I have been stuck waiting for an update that should have been released since Feb/Mar of 2018 - I have to admit I am now looking at other manufacturers for upgrade/replace simply because ZTE is failing in the realm of supporting the existing customers - especially those of us who bought YOUR FLAGSHIP device(s).
It is time for YOU as a LEGITIMATE COMPANY and SMARTPHONE MANUFACTURER to step up and release the OTA and prove your resolve as a LEGITIMATE COMPANY and SMARTPHONE MANUFACTURER in making/releasing plans for the Axon 9 (where'd that go BTW?) now that you can use U.S. made parts again.
I cannot speak for ALL persons that bought a ZTE device and bought into the ZTE hype, but for myself I CAN SAY that I am getting tired of feeling like IT IS TIME TO LOOK ELSEWHERE for a NEWER and BETTER device. Simply because YOU ARE DROPPING THE BALL.
Strike while the iron is hot!
