ZTE Axon M dual-screen phone first look

'); }());

ZTE's new Axon M smartphone looks fairly standard at first glance, but look closer and you see it has not one, but two full displays. Both the front and the back of the phone have 5.2-inch, 1080p screens, and there's a hinge connecting them that allows the back screen to be flipped out and put next to the front screen, creating a larger, tablet-like device. ZTE has built software to run a single app across both screens, or run two apps at the same time to make the most of the Axon M's unique form factor. The M will be available on AT&T later this year.

PlusLucas since you can use a ds emulator on a single screen android phone why not lol. It actually works pretty well holding most phones in portrait already

Yes you can run a ds emulator on it. Use the Drastic emualtor for both screens.

I like it, but I think I’ll wait for bending phones. This one’s just a little too thick. Kinda like a DS in your pocket.

1984keen not really. Though the battery life is sacrificed, it can get you through a day and more. I get that the fact that he said 30 minutes as an over axgerration, but i just corrected him in saying there is potential in extra battery life. Also you kinda proved my point.

I’ve heard that the battery life is amazing. It lasted a whole 30 minuets. You can also fry an egg on it.

August Webb Well, it’s the first try at this type of phone, of course its gonna have its flaws. But this means that in 3-5 years we will have one that is bezzelless in the middle, has a good battery life, doesnt overheat that quick and will be smudge free on both screens and all thatbfor a cheaper price then this one will be at launch

Actually the battery life is surprisingly very good. It has a 3,180mAh battery that delivers over 29hrs of talk time. As for screen on time…I’m having trouble finding anything regarding using both screens and SOT.

I think that the Galaxy s8 it’s the best looking phone so far. These kinds of debaters are kinda pointless. You don’t buy products you don’t like? I prefer the majority of the Samsung products, which I why I but them. However I prefer most of the Apple iPad over Samsung’s tablets.

At first, we wanted small screens. And now, we’ve changed back to the big ones. I do love the split screen option and, multi use of the phone. I was just thinking the same thing! An all in one console/ I would be happy. Stream netflix and play games? How does someone become a developer/tester? I am totally interested in this field. @theverge
