phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 6 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Premium design with a glass front and unibody build
  • The touch sensitive buttons under the screen have a red backlight, adding a touch of style
  • Slim/compact body, and good ergonomics
  • Vibrant 5-inch display with slim bezels that further adds to the overall premium look
  • Nubia UI doesn't deviate too much from a pure Android experience, but adds some useful functionality like split screen, customizable keys, touch gestures, dual mode apps, super screenshot and motion gestures
  • Another handy feature is the frame interactive technology which allows you to add edge gestures to the screen edges
  • Smooth performance in daily use
  • Remains relatively cool whatever you do with it
  • Excellent camera - easily among the best clickers in this price range
  • Photos captured in daylight have sharp details, rich colour and a nice depth of field effect
  • Low light photos are also great - minimal noise with good details
  • The auto mode is quite good, but it’s the Pro mode that give it the edge, letting you change most basic parameters
  • The front 8MP camera is quite good too when it comes to selfies - photos have good detail with vibrant colour
  • Accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Decent battery life - gives a full day of backup with light/moderate use

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • While the camera is very good, the camera shutter is a bit on the slow side
  • The graphics performance is a bit sluggish, making the phone less than ideal for gamers
