The Axon V has the most unique design of the two. Rather than using a traditional notch, ZTE’s decided to put the phone’s front-facing cameras on the right frame. This results in a 6.8-inch OLED display that has virtually no bezels whatsoever, but the side effect is a weird protuberance on its side. The extra room in the Axon V would supposedly allow for extra battery capacity, but if you ask me, I’m not sure if the tradeoff is worth it.
The camera bulge is up high enough to where it doesn’t look like it’d get in the way of normal usage of the Axon V, but it raises concerns around its fragility and compatibility with cases.
