Expectations are not always fulfilled in the terminals that reach the market, and this is what has happened with the ZTE Axon Max. This is a model that has been talked about since last October and it was expected to be a reference within the phablet segment. And this is something that has not finally been fulfilled.
The big difference between expectations and what the ZTE Axon Max really includes is its processor. A Snapdragon 810 was expected which, obviously, would allow the performance of this terminal to be very high. But, finally, the chosen component is a Snapdragon 617. This is an eight-core component that does not perform badly, but it is far from the first of the mentioned SoCs.
In this way, and taking into account that its screen offers a Full HD resolution (1080p), this model the ZTE Axon Max is placed in the upper part of the mid-range of the product, but not in the high one. By the way, the dimensions of the panel are in the 6 inches, so it comes to compete in this section with models like the Huawei Mate 8 and, especially, with the future Samsung Galaxy A9.
