ZTE nubia Z7 Max - User Reviews

  • I can not find SAR values for this phone Please help

  • yep, iphone 3G

  • I have download radio app and is OK and safe ;) only remonte does not work.

  • Reliable, solid phone with no issues. The 13MP camera takes amazing, almost iphone quality photos. Can recommend.

  • Reliable, solid phone with no issues. The 13MP camera takes amazing, almost iphone quality photos. Can recommend.

  • There's a German website where somebody has posted a download link for the radio app. I have no idea if it's a safe download or not, so download at your own risk. Just search for "Z7 Max Radio eingebaut" at the android-hilfe (dot) de website. Hope this helps. Cheers.

  • It's not possible to set your mobile phone to "accept" LTE in your country. It either can do it, or it can't.

  • Hi how do i set the android 4.4.2 on my nubia max to accpt LTE...thanks

  • Can someone tell me where is the radio app?there is none ...but it supports radio tuner....how can i find it without downloading an app from the app store????

  • Hi, my phone does not work infra-red What is this? I am and Ram were global

  • EBay and Amazon prices for the Z7 are over $200. The lowest price I found on 9 February 2017, is US$106 from coolicool, a Chinese seller with favourable reviews.

  • Regarding performance, when benchmarking in Citadel it'll push ~60fps in HQ mode and ~50 in UHQ. Therefore, it shouldn't have a problem with most games, even recent ones.

  • The display is excellent, probably one of the best I've owned. I'd rate the battery as average, but considering the display isn't AMOLED - which is less power hungry - it's probably just fine - if I tweak a few settings, I can get 14 hours of moderate usage out it. The last official Android version for it is 5.1.1. However, if you're willing to go with a custom ROM, 7.1.1 is available in either the Resurrection Remix variety or Linage OS (i. e. Cyanogen Mod)

  • hi....i have some questation and i will thank you for answering....1-how is display quality2-how is battery3-what is the lastet update?(is it gone update andorid 6?)4-how is performance(like testing hd games and menu lags)

  • I imported one of these from Hong Kong recently and I'm really impressed with it: Good build quality, fast performance, with very few bugs in OS - I noticed one small cosmetic with a status indicator - and lots of storage at a great price.

  • CyanogenMod 14 is based on android 6.0 : see here : CM14 :

  • Hi! Can You give a link?

  • It is upgradeble to 6.0 with easy

  • I have this phone since a week. But I did not See any FM radio installed. Van somebody help? Thx

  • Can you tell me how do I get to Android setting ? Thanks

  • Can this phone be upgraded from 4.4 to android 5.1?

  • I'm using 64 GB Samsung card without any problems. After more than 1 year of usage, I can say that the phone is of great value. Never had any issues.

  • It supports upto 64gb memory.....which means....including the internal 32. too...so it will support only 32 gb memory card perfectly. ☺

  • Has anyone tested MHL HDMI output? as this model supposedly supports MHL 3.0

  • Hey, I'm using it in India and it's a good phone.. I've bought new 64gb card and transferred all my data from 32gb card. But as soon as I click new photos, my images become blank... Working good with old 32gb.. Any idea about 64gb card support?

  • upgrade to cm12.1 on needrom stable

  • Latest stock ROM is v3.20. Stable and reliable.

  • I am from india. Should i buy this mobile frim china??? Is it good phone or not pls tel me??

  • Please tell me the steps of get update of lollipop . i have v1.38

  • One SIM is LTE, the other is 2G. But we don't need to swap the SIMs to activate the LTE on the other slot. Just use the Android setting to activate LTE on the other slot.

  • As of now, the stock ROM supports Lollipop. Version 3.18 currently.

  • are both sim cards work together??? can i define both as LTE simultaneously????

  • where can i find a maual for this phone? i have problem when both sims are in - one of them is locked. any parameter i should look for? pls help....

  • If you need just one sim - choose oneplus one. I have z7 max it has some lacks in software

  • I am quite interested about this phone. It is available at eBay India at rs.19999/- Would it be a good buy as there are so many competitive devices at this price point here in India! Like mi4i, zenfone2, HTC desire 820q, oneplus one etc!!! How is the service here in India? Any user please show me some light....thank you.

  • how is the GPS???

  • Greatest and most complete phone ever! I'm going to by me a spare... Congrats to nubia!

  • Great phone with almost perfect smart phone. Wish there's manual somewhere I could download to max the usage.

  • This model have NFC module!

  • Currently the device is officially launched in China market only.

  • Both sim on the phone do support 4G, but only 1 4G can be activated at a time, since its a dual standby not dual active phone. You could easily switch your data provider in the phone settings. When sim 1 on 4G, sim 2 will remain in 2G mode, opposite wise versa.

  • Not sure about the availability in UK, but you could search those online store based in UK, else just buy from some international trade sites such like ali express

  • Dont actually need what gmstools, as there already one key recovery program available when the phone released. It allow your phone to temporary boot into cwm recovery without the need to installed custom recovery or root, where you could install the gapps package zip file from the cwm recovery menu. Simple as abc

  • Dear Sir. your phone zte nubia z7 looks a good phone it has all specifications that other phones has like sony/Samsung etc. can you please reply if I can see it in uk. to buy the phone. thank you

  • What is the SAR value of this phone?

  • So I just received my new phone yesterday morning from JD online in China. I didn't really spend any time with it before taking it to the local electronics market and having it rooted/recovered and gapps installed. So far I spent the better part of 24 hours loading and exploring the device. It feels great in my hand and is much nicer than expected. So far I am very happy with it. I will pay a visit to China mobile and get set up with 4G service soon. It is large but the "one-hand" mode is a nice feature. The split screen seems cool and should come in handy. For the money (1999RMB = $327USD) it seems a steal.

  • Have you installed gapps without rooting or are you baseing this on other Android phones like HTC that allow you to do it with the GMS Installer/

  • Dual standby NOT Dual Active

  • Off course, it's dual sim. And 4G is available for both cards (not in the same time of course)

  • and not Dual SIM!

  • Still cannot shoot videos , plz any helpppppp

  • For anyboby who owns this phone... I it full dual active sim', or just regular dual standby? Thanks.

  • maybe you should try 3rd party Camera apps. and idk i dont have this phone, but you should try it. and good luck for you.

  • Still cannot shoot videos . donno why . plz help

  • 32gb and 2gb ram

  • Yes it has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Link

  • Hi . plz i have problem in shooting videos . i cannot use video recording ! Plz help . is there any support formats !!

  • You can pre-order @Ifalala Store Facebook.

  • Please all, does this phone have Corning Gorilla glass or any glass protection?

  • Where can i buy nubia z7 max in Indonesia?

  • In Indonesia available for ZTE Z7 mini US $309 and ZTE Z7 max US $409. Wow

  • Hello Rado Sorry for the late reply, i did not experience any of the issues you mentioned earlier, what you can do is to set the phone back to factory settings, that should do the trick. hope this helps.

  • I would like to purchase ZTE Nubia Z7 Max - Smart Phone when it will be launch in India

  • Hi, how do I buy one of this Z7 Max, I am from Kenya. Thanks.

  • Hi, I would like one of this Z7 Max, how cam I get it? I am from Kenya.

  • How many gb of memory has the ZTE Nubia Z7 Max available to install applications?

  • Hi. How many gb of memory is the ZTE Nubia Z7 Max available to install applications?

  • removable battery???

  • I have had this phone for 2weeks now and i must say that this phone is more than its price tag, I love the IR it controls all my electronics at home and i connect it to my TV wirelessly, the battery is amazing i charge it 1once in 2 days, also thecamera is fantastic, there is notin more i culd want in a phone dat is not available, i also love the UI. Thank God i did not go for Note3 Neo.

  • Really good phone. Camera and speakerphone are both fantastic too. The rest of the hardware speaks for itself, although 3gb ram would make it perfect. Weakest point would be some of the management apps built into the phone aren't as powerful as some other brands, but I'd hope this gets updated at some point. Build quality is good and phone looks really slim. Screen has better color than other 1080p displays I've looked at

  • I have an offer for ZTE NUBIA Z7 mini for unbelieavable 145 usd and 15 usd for shipping via dhl...is it possible...i got this offer while browsing and searching where to buy it...im not sure about the company or have anyone heard about it...if you want me i can post it here regards

  • I think you better shut it up if you dont even know the default price for the phone. The default pricing is as mentioned, 2k rmb or to be exact 1999 rmb from Nubia official site or authorized reseller such like JD.com, which direct conversion to usd is already at $320+, and how the hell it could be at 240 euros. I bought it through official flash sales from JD and cost me bout 340+ usd including shipping High rating diamond grade reseller at Ali Express is selling at 380 usd, where Oppomart is offering it at 389 usd, which still might not including shipping cost in it

  • to produce this phone cost around 150$ or even less.they selling it for 300$.100% profit.not possible? xiaomi mi 4 have same specs.cost 320$.one plus have same specs.cost 300$(i had it)

  • rrp, probably you are an ss (samsung) man. it costs 360usd with free delivery to any place on Earth. with no mark up for logistic and transportation company, just immagine!

  • You dont even need a specific rom for google play. The phone has 2 language at default, which is chinese or english, which users can choose when the phone 1st boot up. And in order to get gapps support, you could either choose to root the phone and install the correspondent gapps package, or looks for some chinese program which could temporary let you boot into cwm recovery without the need to install cwm. Then you could installed gapps zip file packages without needing to root

  • Dont even believe those crap, 240 euro is totally impossible. Default rrp of the phone in China is already 2k rmb yuan, which is bout 320+ usd. That not even included the reseller marked up yet

  • Could you please share a link where can it buy for 240�? THX

  • I have seen Nubia Z7 Max with Multilanguage ROM, Google Play installed... Could somebody share a link with this ROM and a guide how to root ans install ROM easily please? THX

  • Where can you buy it for 240� please? Could you share the link? THX

  • Also the rotation is not working correctly !! Plz if anyone assist

  • I had no problem with youtube at all. I just simply throw in 1 rmvb and 1 mkv movies and it play with the default player, which can even enable PIP. Music files like flac also play without any prob

  • Just that you dont know the way only. Gapps can be easily installed without even rooting the phone. Just need a program to temporary enter custom recovery only, but you could choose to root if you want to

  • I cannot play YouTube videos !!! Most of the video's format are not supported in z7 max. Also the 13mega pixels rear camera is not 13 !its only 5 or 8 mgpxls, please I need answers ...

  • Nubia Z7 max and mini always drop call when 3g and 4g are on during voice call.

  • Google play is work, i install it/

  • maybe you can flash gapps.zip in your phone by custom recovery. you search this by baidu.com .You can search Android version+gapps .like "4.4.2+gapps".and you can download a .zip file in some BBS . my English is not good,but I think maybe I can help you.my Email is [email protected] you can't download this file and maybe I can seed this file to you.

  • Here is a forums wherein the ZTE z7 max have restricted rom and gapps cannot run even after manually installing it

  • yeah but the problem is you cwnnot install and use googleplay store in some chinese made phone just like the coolpad phone that my friend gave to me. i have manually installed google playstore but it cannot run. i hope this will work on zte

  • It wont have gapps preinstalled, which is similar to all phones sold in China. Installing gapps is also pretty easy so its no big deal at all

  • does it have google playstore installed? othet chinese phones do not have

  • Please gsmarena show battery life test for ZTE nubia z7 max

  • The phone is dual sim dual standby, not dual active. Dual active phone is hardly seen nowdays Nubia series aint officially available else where beside china, so bring it to your local zte service center also useless. Common preinstalled language is english and chinese, other no idea.

  • Is this a removable battery ? Where are service centers in Thailand. Who can load new languages if not shipped with what is needed ?

  • Is the dual sim a standby switch to be one or the other or can use both; one for phone; one for data;- and select any combination of usage; along with the selected phonebook ? Can I select phone-on one sim non roaming and then the other sim for data to be online or not for roaming-wifi connect ?

  • if you can record 1080p; you can only save to the memory card. why not mini hmdi out plug to watch on tv ? or dump direct to a pc/hard drive ? the rest looks great other than my preference is full size mini sims.

  • Dual Sim plus LTE at this price and Top end specs is Just all worth it.

  • GSMArena please please review this phone as soons as possible. I really want the audio quality test.

  • i had bought 4 phone in past 3 years unlock from china i don't care who said it work for me save me some money and good looking too friend me ask where your get these phone from.

  • most likely due to some extra features on z7 such like ois which slightly increase the phone dimension, and the removable battery. Max and Mini battery is non removable type

  • It has gorilla glass 3 protection, using sharp cgs panel

  • The best phone ever!!! These specs and design is just what my dream phone would be. I'm definitely gonna get this awesome device. Thank you so much ZTE!!!

  • my opinion: perfect phone, has everything i wanted: 5 or more, max 5.7 inch screen 16 GB minimum internal memory, has 32. 5 MP selfie cam :D good rear cam (13 MP) 3000+ battery (3100) and price of 240 � :D

  • The Z7 Max is even a fraction smaller than the Z7.

  • Very beautiful phone, except for the camera without the OIS system.

  • So the Z7 Max version has a memory card slot+100 mAh more battery, but less RAM.
