Cash For Apps: Make money with android app

Despite being about six months old now, Oreo is still rolling out to several devices, slowly contributing to its 1% marketshare. Just recently, Samsung started (and then stopped) the official rollout of Oreo to the Galaxy S8 and S8+, and now ZTE is joining the club by announcing its Axon 7 A2017U Oreo Preview Program.

Android 8.0 Oreo beta program for the ZTE Axon 7 debuts in the US

ZTE’s Axon 7 has been pretty successful in the US, at least as far as any handset sold unlocked can claim to be. To appease owners who’ve been asking for an Oreo update for a while, the Chinese company announced back in December that the update would roll out this April. Not only that, but ZTE is giving up on its MiFavor UI in favor of something called Stock+. And now you can beta test that purer interpretation of the OS if you want. ZTE is inviting owners of the A2017U version of the Axon 7 (running the current build B35) to apply for a spot in a new Preview Program. The first group will…

ZTE Axon 9 rumor points to 18:9 screen and Snapdragon 845 chipset

ZTE’s head honcho confirmed that the Axon 9 is coming this year and now some alleged images and specs have surfaced on Weibo. The phone both is and isn’t what we expected. A 6″ AMOLED screen with QHD+ resolution – and 18:9 aspect ratio – was to be expected. A high-res AMOLED was one of the key selling points of the 7. But if you look under the screen, you’ll see that this Axon 9 features capacitive keys. Then there are two dual cameras. The rear camera features a 20MP primary sensor (an upgrade over the Dual 12MP camera of the Axon 7s) while the dual selfie camera sports a 13MP main…

ZTE Axon 9 coming this year, CEO confirms

The Axon 7 and Axon 7s were a lot of phone for not a lot of money and ZTE’s pivot to a close to stock Android made us wish for a successor. Well, in an interview ZTE CEO Cheng Lixin talked about the foldable Axon M, but also announced that the company will launch a new device in the line. It will be called ZTE Axon 9. The number 8 is getting skipped over, reportedly because of how it sounds in Chinese – “axon” sounds like “sky machine”, but add the 8 and it starts sounding like “mess up”. Whatever the name, ZTE wants to boost its market presence – mostly in China as the company is…

Some ZTE Axon 7 phones in the US now running test version of Android Oreo

So you want an affordable but powerful phone with unmodded Android? “Affordable” means not a Pixel. “Powerful” dismisses Android Ones. And “Unmodded” discounts the likes of Xiaomi. A surprising answer to this question might be the ZTE Axon 7, a phone that is (unfortunately) no longer in production. Launched in mid-2016 with Marshmallow, the phone is on track to receive Android 8.0 Oreo in April. And better yet, the company is dropping the MiFavor custom ROM to something much closer to stock – in fact, it’s called Stock+. A test version of Oreo is currently running on some Axon 7 phones…
