2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 10 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Beautiful, refined exterior - aluminum and glass, brushed and curved to match the elegant styling of many 2016 flagships - one of the best designed phones of 2016
  • Excellent overall build quality with all-aluminum 6000 series alloy body
  • Both 2160p and 1080p videos have plenty of detail and smooth capture at a stable 30 fps - there is also a high frame rate mode that works great - although audio could be captured with better quality

Display

  • Stunning, eye-catching bezel-less look
  • Bright 5.5-inch IPS display - with good contrast and sunlight legibility

Software

  • Nubia UI 4.0 over Android is colorful, vibrant and more streamlined than before
  • The Nubia UI is improved from before but little things like bad English translations are still present, and it is not as simple and clutter-free as stock Android UI or the Oxygen UI of OnePlus

Performance

  • Performance is smooth and effortless (although the hardware is underutilized and capable of a lot more)

Camera

  • The camera UI is clean and intuitive and still images show good quality overall

Battery

  • Battery life is very good

More

  • On the whole, the camera quality is not too far behind that of the excellent OnePlus 3
  • Music player is good and has FLAC and lyrics support
  • Video player handles videos well - both x264 and x265 work, as well as AC3
  • On the whole, while the Z11 is a pretty great phone overall, it gets edged out right now by the excellent OnePlus 3, with a more consistent camera and a simpler UI
