    Hello phone experts,
    Please give me your opinion. I'm about to buy a ZTE phone.
    ZTE is having a one day flash sale on the Axon 30 & 30 Ultra phones.


    • Axon 30 - --------12gb+ 256gb ---$549.00
    • Axon 30 Ultra - --12gb+ 256gb----$700.00

    My previous devices have been ZTE Axon phones. (Axon 7, Axon 10, Axon M foldable)
    I'm only stuck on ZTE because it's what I'm used to. I'm open to all suggestions.

    • I live in the United States if that matters.
    • I do NOT care about the camera, as long as it works.
    • I play simple games and occasionally watch You Tube.
    • I DO care about battery life.
    • It needs a SIM slot.

    I'm about to purchase a new Axon 30 or Axon 30 Ultra - unless someone can suggest a better choice.
    Leaning towards the Axon 30 -unless the Ultra is a better choice.
    Thank you for any advice you guys can offer.

    Welcome to Android Central! Do you mean that you want an SD card slot? All phones have a SIM slot.

    I was going to suggest the Realme GT 5G, but that doesn't have an SD card slot:

    I would also suggest the OnePlus 8 series, which may be a year behind, but it's still a formidable group of phones (and OnePlus is pretty good about updates).

    Thank You very much. I will definitely look at both suggestions.
    OnePlus is a definite consideration. I don't have an issue with it being a year behind,
    but will it run the current Android version?
    REALME GT also looks interesting. Will look at both today.
    Thanks again

    "All phones have a SIM slot."
    Maybe I'm unclear about GSM vs CDMA.
    CDMA=no SIM?

    SD card slot isn't mandatory as long as the phone has enough storage without it.
    Since I'm not snapping selfies everywhere I go, probably not an issue.

    Interestingly, the ZTE Axon 30 has an SD slot, however the Axon 30 Ultra does not.

    Android 12 is still in beta for the OnePlus 8 line, but they do intend to release it as a stable version at some point.
