09 February 2017, 12:44 | Muriel Sparks

Despite meeting all hardware requirements, the Axon 7 lacked the required software - part of which was Android 7.0 Nougat - in order to work with Google's virtual reality platform.

ZTE had previously meant to release the android Nougat update for their ZTE Axon 7 smartphone in January, although the update was delayed and ZTE said it would be released some time before the end of quarter one.

ZTE has announced that the Axon 7 is now receiving an update to Android 7.0 Nougat.

1M Britons sign petition to stop Trump's official visit to UK
Mrs May's office said on Monday she was "very happy" to extend the invitation to Mr Trump on behalf of the Queen. Under the rules, a petition that attracts over 1 million signatures is considered for debate in parliament.

When ZTE launched the phone, they advertised it as Google Daydream ready. Users will still need to purchase a Daydream View headset, which is now on sale for $50.

As for Daydream, well, I guess it's time you grab a Daydream View headset from Google, yeah? Others members of this select club are the Pixels, the Moto Z, ASUS ZenFone AR and Huawei's Mate 9 Pro and Mate 9 Porsche Design. ZTE's midrange phone runs on a respectable Snapdragon 820 processor.

Setting aside its VR capabilities, the ZTE Axon 7 would still be a solid pick though and through. It has 4GB of RAM, 64 GB of built-in memory, and up to 128 GB of expandable storage. The new build brings users the option of multi-tasking on their device (running two apps at the same time on the display), improved battery and a brand set of emojis. The advanced chipset also allows the phone to play and record crisp, high-quality audio. These featured are available to Axon 7 owners thanks to a new partnership with Hiya.
