ZTE Axon 30 Review: Invisible Camera, Visible Disappointment


Tecno Ad

Smartphones have come a long way since their inception. We’ve seen ones that fold or flip, to those that entirely swivel out. And there’s a couple of phones that bury the camera under the screen as well. In this review, I’ll be discussing the ZTE Axon 30 5G, which is technically the world’s first phone featuring a second-gen under-display camera.
