Nubia Z11 Review

With a design that turns heads, and a camera that comes close to be the best in class, is the Nubia Z11 the best alternative for the OnePlus 3?

Nubia Z11

1 / 13

The Nubia brand is Chinese manufacturer ZTE’s attempt to create a standing in the smartphone industry, which, unsurprisingly, is filling up fast with offerings from other Chinese manufacturers. The Nubia brand’s philosophy, as the company claims, is to sell products to the ‘adventurous’. Surely then, buying the feature-rich Z11 can be an adventurous decision, because while the product seems very promising, the brand itself doesn’t have any significant traction in the Indian market. The Nubia Z11, laden with specifications and features rivalling the OnePlus 3 and some other flagships, seems like a very good purchase decision on paper, with neat photography and display tricks up its sleeve.

OUR VERDICT

Undoubtedly, the ZTE Nubia Z11 looks like a great phone on paper. The specifications are on par with the OnePlus 3, and it packs a feature-laden primary camera that works as well as it sounds. The edge-to-edge display looks stunning, but has a few disadvantages (something that one can get used to, over time though). The UI looks a tad bit too colourful than needed, and lacks a certain amount of finesse. Having said that, the ZTE Nubia Z11 packs some very handy ‘edge’ features. While the brand name doesn’t have the kind of value as OnePlus or Apple, the ZTE Nubia Z11 definitely offers a lot of value for money.
