Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 4 Expert Reviews

What we liked
  • Classy, premium design, and very good build quality - something that is a feature of all Nubia phones
  • Accurate fingerprint sensor at the back (though it's not the fastest)
  • Compact profile and pocketable size with a 5.2-inch display
  • Very good display with excellent colors and black levels, along with good peak brightness and sharpness - the phone is great to watch videos and play games on as a result, and overall, has among the best screens in this price category
  • Good overall performance powered by the excellent Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, which offers a fantastic balance between power and energy efficiency
  • Graphics-intensive games work without much hiccups as well, as do most heavy apps
  • Very good rear camera, with above average picture quality for this price bracket - shots are clean, vibrant, detailed and extremely good to look at from the perspective of color reproduction
  • Video recording is decent (though certainly not as capable as higher end phones)
  • The front camera is decent too
  • Excellent battery life - can run for up to two days on a full charge, depending on your usage - although it isn’t quite as long-lasting as the Lenovo P2 or Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, it’s still among the top battery performers in this price bracket
  • Supports the new USB-C standard
What we didn't
  • Nubia UI looks pretty nice and has some moderately useful add-ons like ‘edge’ gestures, but lacks the refinement of other UIs like those of Xiaomi, Vivo, or Oppo, and has issues here and there
  • Misses out on fast charging - although charging isn’t too slow, it does take well over two hours to fully charge the 3000mAh battery - there are competing options from Lenovo and Motorola that offer significantly faster charging
