Touches into the edges. The Nubia Z17 Mini is a 5.2-inch mid-range smartphone that tries to impress with a special mode of controlling the device from the edges of the screen. A dual-camera on the rear and ample storage options are other good reasons. Therefore, can you overlook this outdated Android?

Nubia Z40S Pro Review: Snapdragon 8+ With 35MM Prime Lens
Source: Igeekphone English
Every time I experience the 35mm main camera, I feel more and more that the current increasingly “wide” main camera is not suitable for me. Focus on the center of the field of view and highlight the subject. For ordinary people, the 35mm focal length is better. In addition, it also has an image configuration of all focal lengths, super wide-angle super macro, and periscope telephoto. Although the specifications are not top-level, it is much better than the number of lenses. At the same time, some algorithms are close to realistic colors, and a variety of camera gameplay as an aid. The Nubia Z40S Pro may not be the most aggressive among the current image flagships, but it is not an exaggeration to say that its camera experience is in the first echelon of mobile phone images. In addition, it also supports 120W super fast charging, the optional 80W version has a larger battery, and has a flagship large-size X-axis linear motor, etc. The peripheral configuration will not let you have any regrets.

Nubia:


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 510: Integrated graphics card based on the Adreno 500 architecture, like the Adreno 520 in the Snapdragon 820. Performance should be on average similar to the old Adreno 330 in the Snapdragon 801. Supports DirectX12, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 730: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 30% faster than the Adreno 660 in the Snapdragon 888 SoC. For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in late 2021.
