2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 1 Expert Review analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Looks good, with a stylish, premium, unibody design
  • The fingerprint scanner is integrated with the home button on the front and works quite well
  • The polished design, coupled with the large screen means ergonomically the phone isn't the best

Display

  • Average display - viewing angles, and sunlight legibility are not too great

Software

  • Nubia's UI layer over Android asks for too many unnecessary permissions which can get annoying

Performance

  • Passable but not too great performance - resource intensive apps/games will be a struggle - the likes of Redmi Note 4 are much better performers in this price bracket

Camera

  • Sub par rear camera - images lack sharpness and often show noise - the camera is also slow to focus
  • The front camera is strictly average too - especially in lower light, images show undersaturated colors and a lot of noise

Battery

  • Decent battery life - lasts the work day with moderate use

More

  • The polished finish on the smartphone makes it a bit slippery and prone to drops if you are not diligent while using it (it might be a good idea to use a case)
  • Unconventional use of the second capacity key (for settings instead of multi-tasking) is a bit of an aberration
