ZTE Axon 7 mini
Ok. Anyone reading this?
I have nailed it down to two new phones now, so give me your thoughts.
Motorola Moto G50
just don't like the idea of saying goodby to my Axon7 mini.

Are you still of the opinion that the Reno 2 is a good by.
I see on ebay there are a lot around the £2220 mark...
Ideally I didn't want to go that large. I was hoping to keep to 5.5" max.
Anyone have any recommendation's, Axon 7 size.

Can you give a rev... moreI can answer that. I currently use a Mi9 and used to use Axon 7 mini, not last phone but one before. The Axon 7 smashes the Mi9. However my Axon 7 developed a severe wifi fault, as in wouldn't work at all. Simple answer buy neither.
Xiaomi are a bad company these days. 2 out of 3 official updates bricked my Mi9 phone and had to be factory reset both times. Endless bugs with it too. Worst and most expensive phone I ever bought. Xiaomi of today is sadly not the same as their early days.
Oppo Reno 2 is a really good phone. Faultless for its price. That would be my budget mid suggestion.

I bought 2 axon 7 minis about 36 months ago. One lasted 18 months before it wouldn't charge and was replaced under ZTE 3 year warranty by Carphone warehouse. The other is getting glitchy with random reboots and occasionally ending calls all by itself, so I've just bought a Mi9t which for about £250 is the same cost as the ZTE was 36 months ago. No comment about the Mi9t as it just arrived but the reviews are good. I hope the sound can match the axon.

With the imminent launch of the Pixel 4a, 3a prices should drop a bit further. If you need something ASAP, alternatives to the Pixel series (which should have reliable updates) are the OnePlus 6t or Nokia 7.1. The OnePlus 6t is a bit less of a trade off overall than the Nokia 7.1 but could be a bit pricier. I will admit to a little bias since my daily driver is the Google Pixel 3a XL.

You should be able to update to Nougat 7.1.1 manually if you can't from the updater. Problem is ZTE removed the files from their site when all the China - US issues started. I recommend checking you at XDA there you will find the guide to update manually.

But these stories of freezing and crappy battery life 2 months later makes me want to buy a more up to date phone in similar price range.
Now looking at very simple but effective Moto G7 play instead.
Slightly bigger battery, but has to support Pie, so it is rated as weak, depending on type of use, and DOES NOT offer fast charge at all! The mini 7 does charge fast, for some reason charges fast in my car charger too I noticed.
