PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 5 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Well designed and well built
  • Good display - with decent viewing angles, warm colors, and ample sharpness - visibility under direct sunlight is better than many devices and you can use it without having to squint or find shade
  • Nubia UI on top of Android adds a ton of edge gestures and personalisation options
  • Good 13MP front facing camera - the “pretty” feature is simple and easy to use - the front facing camera can also record video in 1080p, which is quite good for video chats
  • Good battery life - though not as exceptional as claimed by Nubia - lasts about a day and a half on moderate use

What We Didn't

  • With the relatively large size and weight, it is not the most ergonomic phone
  • Additionally the metal back, though it looks and feels quite premium, is also slippery
  • Performance is pretty decent in day to day use but could have been better, given the competition - in day-to-day use, the phone performs smoothly but will get a little sluggish with heavy multi-tasking and top-end games
  • Average rear camera - clarity is not up to the mark, compared with most competitors - further, images taken in low light are also pretty ordinary
