2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 5 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Eye-catching, premium looks - continues Nubia’s tradition of a evolved design philosophy - the black and gold colour scheme is unique amongst a sea of similar looking smartphones
  • Its unibody metallic design feels better and more upmarket than most phones in this range - aesthetically, this is probably the best you can get in this price range
  • Slippery and prone to falling - the body is slippery all around, even the sides, which makes the phone precarious in your hand
  • Combined with the fact that it’s larger than average, ergonomics really isn’t the M2 Lite’s strong suit here
  • The fingerprint sensor's accuracy is flaky

Display

  • Average 5.5 inch TFT HD display - with noticeably poor viewing angles

Software

  • Nubia UI looks good - icons are colourful, but also sharp and modern
  • A lot of the apps preloaded on the phone ask for irrelevant permissions, which could be a privacy red-flag for some users

Performance

  • Performance is decent but could be better - benchmark scores are on the lower end of the spectrum for this price bracket

Camera

  • Pretty good selfie camera (though nothing extraordinary, as the advertisements may claim)
  • Average rear camera - noise levels are on the high side, with grainy shadows when shooting outdoors, while low lights shots produce distinctly undersaturated colours

Battery

  • Decent battery life - on a regular day’s usage, the Nubia M2 Lite lasts for about a work day, hitting industry standards today

More

  • There’s also a heating issue -internal temperatures can rise to over 50 degrees at times, which isn’t ideal for any smartphone
