The Nubia Z11, laden with specifications and features rivaling the One plus 3 and some other flagships, seems like a very good purchase decision on paper, with neat photography and display tricks up his sleeve. The Nubia brand is Chinese manufacture ZTE is attempt to create a standing in the smart phone industry, which, unsurprisingly, is filling up fast with offerings from other Chinese manufactures. Surely then, buying the feature – rich Z11 can be an adventurous decision, because while the product seems very promising, the brand itself does not have any significant traction in the Indian market.
Nubia Z11 Features
1. Design & Build
The Nubia Z11, if not anything, looks quite spectacular for many reasons. The 5.5- inch display is stretches from one edge to the other in the literal sense. This makes the Nubia Z11 quite the head – turner and a great conversation starter. First off, the metal body does not quiet feel very sturdy, with the exception of the frame. While we agree that it is indeed a beautiful product and the artisanship is simply genius, we had to deal with many accidental inputs.
People with pudgy hands would especially feel the brunt because the palms would constantly keep giving touch inputs on the edge. The third problem arises with the fact that while the Nubia Z11 is very ergonomic in terms of button placement, the device itself feels quite slippery. The trouble is that the sensor is attaches to many other features such as triggering screenshots. Rating: 6.5/10
The Nubia Z11, which its specifications, has been touted by many as a flagship killer, but with a standard FHD display it is not quite so. The ZTE Nubia Z11 comes with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display panel, which has an inherent resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 403 ppi. Flagship devices, at least the high-end ones, are mostly toting 2K displays these days, if not a Quad HD one. The display is very good to use indoors, and offers good brightness and the colours tend to pop out a bit with some extra saturation.
The Nubia UI itself is a very colorful overlay and that adds to a better usage experience. The 2.5D curved glass overlay also adds to the premium feel, but if you look closely then you will see a little bit of distortion where the curved glass meets the edge. The Nubia Z11 is display is quite bright under direct sunlight as well, but colors are not as crisp as they are indoors. Flagship killing or not, the ZTE Nubia Z11 is display manages to impress anyway. Rating: 7.2/10
The device runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip, which may not be the very latest in tech, but still a top-of-the-line processor. The makers of the ZTE Nubia Z11 definitely had the intention of going all out on performance because it’s packed to the brim with goodies on the specifications list. Complementing the Snapdragon 820 SoC is an Adreno 530 GPU and an admittedly. It takes on tasks as easily as a top shelf device in the Rs 40,000-50,000 bracket would.
While playing Asphalt Extreme and Asphalt Extreme, the Nubia Z11 did not break into a sweet even once. Again, the experience was devoid of any kind of frame drops or lags. There were no frame drops or any lag of any kind at all. In the photo editing tests too, the Nubia Z11 performed quite well. The benchmark scores turn up favoring the Nubia Z11 very well. The best part about the Nubia Z11 is that it handled all of this without getting too hot. Ratings: 7.6/10
4. Primary Camera
A quick glance at the Nubia Z11’s camera specification sheet is good enough to back that statement up. Packing in the most lucrative features on a device seems to be ZTE’s modus operandi for the Nubia Z11. The first is standard optical image stabilization (OIS), the second is the electronic image stabilization (EIS), and the third is something called hand-held image stabilization (HIS). The main sensor is a 16 Megapixels snapper, with an f/2.0 aperture.
You also get a Manual Mode and the option to shoot in RAW. The nubia Z11’s camera, we felt at time, has more jargons in it than megapixels. There is something LTM (Local Tone Mapping), there is DTI (Deep Trench Isolation) pixel isolation, which claims to render colors accurately, that apparently brightens up the darker parts of pictures where the source of light is behind the subject, and 3D Noise Reduction technology, which, well, reduce noise. The Nubia Z11 came out looking very good colour reproduction is very good, albeit with a slight of over saturation of the reds. The other disappointment is that the low-lit photos in our controlled camera quality test lacked detail and the shadows showed a fair amount of chrome noise. Rating: 7.3/10
5. Secondary Camera
The rear camera gets a lot of fancy camera tech, which the company goes to an extent to call it a DSLR-like experience, the front camera carries only some standard selfie features. The selfie taken on the Nubia Z11 were, as expected, were Pretty Decent in well-lit conditions, retaining a good amount of colour accuracy and detail. The front facing unit on the ZTE Nubia Z11 is a 8 Megapixel one, which, in pure pixel count, is an acceptable number.
Surprisingly, the front facing camera performed better than the primary camera in the regular camera tests with the Nubia Z11. It is surprising to note that the Nubia Z11 Mini, which is much less expensive device, packs a front facing LED flash, but the bigger Nubia Z11 does not pack one and makes do with a screen-simulated flash. Even the screen-simulated flash does not over expose the skin tones, and the result comes out looking quite pleasing. Ratings: 5.9/10
6. Software & UI
As is the norm these days with many Chinese manufacturers who have their own UIs over laid on the Android OS, the ZTE Nubia Z11 also ditches the app drawer with the Nubia OS. The Nubia Z11 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but has the Nubia UI 4.0 slapped on top of it, and that makes the experience entirely unlike stock Android.
The fingerprint scanner also doubles up as a screenshot assistant – with a long press on the scanner, you can get into a screenshot mode, which features a long scrollable screenshot, a standard screenshot, a multi-shape crop screenshot, or just launch a screen-recording mode. To start working n the slipt-screen mode on the Nubia Z11, you will need to swipe up from the bottom of the display, and your phone creates two desktop environments for you. While many smart phones have just received split-screen functionality with the Android 7.0 Nougat, the Nubia Z11 is offering this as stock with its overlay. Ratings: 7.3/10
7. Call Quality
For calls, the Nubia Z11’s earpiece is loud and audible enough under all circumstances, whether it was a noisy marketplace or the silence of an empty conference room. The loudspeaker, though loud, can lose quality at higher volume levels. For voice calls, the noise cancellation on the in-built microphone is also quite good at drowning out the ambient noise. There is also a problem with the proximity sensor – we are not sure if it exits with all the units or it was just our review unit. Rating: 7.8/10
8. Battery Life
The Nubia Z11 comes with a 3,000-mAh battery, which is quite the standard size for smart phones across price segments. In our test process, we would charge the phone up to a 100%, which would take a little over an hour and a half with the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 compliant charger. ZTE does claim that their battery optimizations will let you run the device for two days on one single charger, but our tests refused to agree with those claims. Among the battery draining activities, we relied on gaming, and a 30-minute gaming spree, we are delighted to report, drained the battery only by 7-8% at the most. We got a rating of 7 hour and 39 minutes on the PCMark battery benchmark, and nearly 9 hours on the video loop test with some background apps running. Rating: 8.1/10
