Hello, everybody, I'm Lynn La for CNET and today we're going to take a look at ZTE Axon Pro. This device is ZTE's inaugural flagship phone, and features an expansive 5.5 inch display with a crisp 1440p resolution and 534 ppi. It's powered by an Opticore 2 GHz Snapdragon 810 processor from Qualcomm, and a 3 ampere hour non removable battery, that features quick charge 2.0 technology. On the front, is an 8 mega pixel camera that can record 1080p HD video and back here, it has its two rear facing cameras that you can launch with a short cut key on the right edge. The bottom is a 13-megapixel shooter which can record HD and film or videos. Above that is a two-megapixel camera that together lets you adjust a photo's depth of field after you've taken a picture, giving your images a more dramatic effect. The device also has a manual mode to give you even more controlling functionality over your camera. The handset runs Google's Android 5.1 lollipop OS and features a few software goodies. One is the RockMyRun app which lets you listen to music an playlists that match the tempo and rhythm of your current workout. Another is ARGUS, an activity tracker that lets you see how many steps you've taken throughout the day, right on your lockscreen. Other features include high-fidelity audio that works in conjunction with Dolby audio technology, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage with no option to expand. The phone is available in gold, silver and blue and comes pre-packaged with a pair of JBL earbuds. Now ZTE is bypassed in carrier support for this device so if you're interested you can buy in online for four hundred and fifty dollars unlocked. Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out ZTE's Axon Pro.
