200 million pixels! That's what the cameras on the back of the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra 5G add up to. And since more is better, the Axon must be the ultimate cameraphone, right? Well, that's what we're here to find out.
All those megapixels are split between four cameras, and there's no shortage of unusual decisions on ZTE's part. The main unit is 64MP and is paired with a 26mm lens - nothing extraordinary there. Things get interesting with the next 64MP sensor that gets 35mm optics - ZTE calls this the portrait lens. There's still a long way to 200, and a third 64MP sensor helps out, this one with ultrawide glass and we don't think there's another 64MP UW camera? Then there's the 8MP periscope telephoto to complete the picture. There you have it - 200.
With such imaging chops, it only makes sense that the Axon 30 Ultra packs some high-end hardware in other areas, and that is indeed the case. The Snapdragon 888 is as good as it gets for computing power, the 144Hz AMOLED display is 24Hz ahead of the mainstream, and you can get the Axon with up to a terabyte of storage. Here's a quick rundown of the numbers.
The one notable omission in that specsheet is an IP rating - flagships typically have dust and water protection, but the Axon doesn't, sadly. With all those cameras and a starting price of $750/€750, something had to give, and certified weather sealing didn't make the cut. Then again, ZTE doesn't normally do IP ratings on phones anyway.
There's nothing missing in the retail bundle, on the other hand. ZTE has bundled the Axon 30 Ultra with a transparent hard plastic snap-on cover for protection, a USB-C-to-3.5mm dongle, and a pair of earbuds.
There's also a charger, of course, and it's one of the more exciting bits about the Axon (it says a lot about us, doesn't it, the things that get us excited). You see, it's a 65W USB Power Delivery 3.0 unit with PPS support, and it's very likely the smallest adapter we've seen that has these specs. The US one is even more compact. The thick 6-amp USB-C cable is also a nice touch and will be able to comfortably power-deliver all those 65 watts to a laptop if you so choose.
Let's stay focused on the phone, though, shall we.
Very grateful and the most comfortable phone
