- Analysis by Christelle Nina
The ZTE Axon 7 Max isn't filled to the hilt with premium-tier features, but it certainly gives justice to what its name claims. In fact, its mostly-midrange set of specs would likely extend the longevity of its already-hefty 4100mAh battery even more.
Sticking to a 1920 x 1080 display resolution on its 6-inch screen (instead of attempting to push it up a notch) may very well be a longevity-related move. Perhaps the major battery consumer with regards to its display, then, is the 3D Naked Eye feature that it comes with. This is apparently designed to enable users to enjoy 3D content without the use of specialized glasses.

Its cameras bring in a few pros and cons to the table, as well. The 13-megapixel selfie sensor is better than many of its midrange counterparts from other brands. While the same amount of resolution isn't as exciting in the context of rear cameras, the Axon 7 Max still maintains an edge courtesy of its 4K video-recording ability .
Compared to its midrange fellows, this 196-gram smartphone is markedly-heavier . It's among the thicker models at 8.2mm, as well . Nonetheless, its metal finishing gives it a sophisticated appearance -- although such a feature is quickly becoming more of a requirement than an accomplishment.
Performance-wise, the Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 CPU that it comes with isn't groundbreaking in the context of early 2017. Furthermore, the fact that it comes with only four cores may turn off highly-demanding users, as more and more similarly-priced options are moving on to octa-core processors. However, it does have some pretty strong points, memory-wise. Both of its 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM are highly-competitive in its market range.

The ZTE Axon 7 Max evidently has its own unique set of pros and cons. It would thus depend on the prospective buyer to decide if the right trade-offs had been made in order to accommodate its powerful battery.
