The ZTE Axon M Smartphone is yet to be released, the smartphone is a very unique smartphone because of its special ability to be FOLDABLE, many smartphone manufacturers have tried to make this FOLDABLE smartphone dream a reality for everyone to see but only one company is capable of producing Foldable phones and i will assume you all know this company, but for those who do not know the company, let me give a detailed information about them.

ZTE Axon M Full Review

ZTE is a Chinese Multinational Telecommunications Equipment and Systems company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong China, Since Android supports double window applications, ZTE expects that they will be able to manufacture a smartphone that will be foldable.  I have reviewed, watched videos and seen photos of the Axon M myself but i am not completely convinced yet about its potentials.

The Axon M looks exactly like a laptop with a screen where the keyboard and other accessories are usually arranged apart from the fact that the display screen face outward. A hinge in the middle allows the user to flip one display to the back so both panels are outside. Note that both Screens have different sizes, the secondary screen is thinner than the primary screen, together the two 5.2-inch displays make one 6.75-inch screen.

The hinge is apparently strong enough to hold the primary and secondary screen in place even when they are totally or slightly apart. The Axon M can be opened up to a maximum (180 degrees) that will enable full screen viewing.

The Axon M features three modes that you can switch through by tapping the big M button button ZTE added to the Operating Systm Android 7.1 Nougat Nav. bar, this navigation bar brings up four menus that you can select from including:  Extend (full screen), Dual (two apps side by side), Mirror (same contents on both screens) and lastly the normal screen format.

All the three modes i mentioned in the above paragraph are useful in one way or the other . In Dual Mode, it enables efficient multitasking since you can drag and drop information between the both screens,  Mirror Mode also has its own benefits as well like i said earlier, they all have useful benefits, In the mirror mode it helps to display PowerPoint presentations or show a YouTube video to someone sitting across from you

Unlike the Dual Mode and Mirror Mode, the advantages of the Extend Mode are not quite obvious but i will still state its function for you in my article, it helps to open an application across the two screens in your ZTE Axon M which enables users to view more than one content at once. 

The ZTE Axon M (Foldable) has lots of unique and special features; instead of  stretching videos or media files to fit the screen, the Axon M makes the of the remaining spaces to show other things like the comment section on YouTube. And also when Twitter is in Extend mode and the smartphone is held horizontally, the extra space below helps to show the keyboard.

However, ZTE has implemented a lot of features to make such a nice, unique, outstanding and special device for easy accessibility by its users. Users can easily swipe through the navigation bar when you’re in an application to open it in Extended Mode .

Speaking of the ZTE Axon M, it is equipped with the same speakers and sound cards of the Axon 7 which is literally made for loud and crisp audio, The ZTE Axon M screen quality are just unbeatable if i must say because both screens use a LCD panel with complete HD Resolution. The Ultimate Axon M has a 3180mAh Battery which the company says will last for only a day on dual mode while it will last for about 3 days on single mode, but it definitely depends on your usage habits.

Axon M is equipped with a Snapdragon 821 chipset which is know is not the best chipset in the market but i very well know that the Snapdragon 821 chipset performed excellently well on the OnePlus 3 T, the Axon M was also spotted with a 4GB RAM. The idea of using a 4GB RAM for a smartphone with dual mode is not a very good idea but it was reported that the company will increase the RAM size to 8 GB before the full release of the device.
