Now that the US edition of the Axon 7 has been announced, I was wondering the best way to get one in New Zealand. I could buy a Chinese one on aliexpress, or preorder a US one and ship it to nz using a third party service, but these ways both have problems. Does anyone know of a possible international release, or simply a way to order one?

Better to get a UK/European one - pretty sure from the digging I've been doing that it'll have band 28 support - but again, not sure how important that is for you!

 

It was announced in the UK before the US release, and will be shipping in Aug/Sept I think (have had delays).

UK youshop and phones is a no-go because of battery paranoia.

Sorry for asking another Axon 7 question, but I really am confused about the different editions. The lowest price I can find for the Chinese version is $525 USD, whereas the US version is going for $400 USD. Why the price difference? If I buy the phone without band 28 support, what does that mean for using it on the network? I am located in central wellington. Thank you for any help.

Hi I was wondering if you managed to order one and if you did does it have 28 band or not?

 

 

 

cheers

I'm also keen on the Axon 7. I see ZTE Australia is officially launching it there including band 28 support. It's AUD$699 so a bit more than the US version.

I guess not having band 28 may not be a big issue in Wellington and would depend on which network you're on. Spark/Skinny only offers 4G on band 28 in some places like Palmerston North and Hamilton so pays to check their website.
