While under-display cameras remain an oddity among the latest and greatest Android phones, the ZTE Axon 30 5G marks the company’s second crack at getting the feature to work. And while there aren’t many competitors to compare it to right now, ZTE looks to have set the standard for under-screen sensors for the time being.

Once you look past the disappearing selfie camera, the phone that remains is still an impressive one. Sitting at the more expensive side of mid-range phones, the Axon 30 boasts a huge display, a strong chipset and rapid charging. But the rougher sides of the Axon 30 experience — its undersized battery, divisive design and disappointing photos — should give you pause if you’re thinking about a purchase.
