Samsung Galaxy S7 (2016) vs ZTE Axon (2019)

Analysis:

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active (2016) and the ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020) are decent Smartphones at their respective price points, but don't manage to stand out from their direct competitors in any meaningful way. We suggest that you also look at some alternatives that can be found for around $370 or $510.

If you're still interested in learning a bit more about the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active (2016) and the ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020), however, read on for a summary of what we could gather about them:

While the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active (2016) wasn't able to make it to the very top of any roundups from sources that perform quality hands-on testing, it still got featured in a large number of them. Android Authority, PCmag, TechSpot, PhoneArena, CNET, Techradar, and Tom's Guide have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

As for the ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020) - it was really well-received by reviewers at PCmag, a great source that's known for conducting high-quality in-depth testing. It performed great in its "The Best Chinese Phones" roundup and was named its "Best for 5G Fans", which, on its own, makes it a product that warrants a closer look.

When we thoroughly analyzed their review scores, we learned that all of the sources that tested both Smartphones, including PCmag and Digitaltrends, preferred the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active (2016) over the ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020).

Lastly, we averaged out all of their review ratings and observed that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active (2016), with its 8.6 average, performed considerably better than most Smartphones - the mean score for the product category being 7.5 out of 10 - while the ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020) managed an average of 7.3.

There's one caveat here - it might not be entirely justifiable to do a direct Samsung Galaxy S7 Active (2016) vs. ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020) review average comparison since they aren't priced the same and more expensive products tend to get higher review scores from some sources.
