Reviews for the ZTE Nubia M2

70% Nubia M2 Review

The Nubia M2 looks pretty good and performs quite well. The display is nice to watch content on and battery life is impressive. Unfortunately, it runs an outdated version of Android and there is no news of updates at this point. Some users might find the UI confusing as well. Camera performance is good during the day but suffers in low light. Other devices such as the Moto G5s and the Xiaomi Mi A1 (Review) offer roughly the same hardware for less money, making the Nubia M2 feel overpriced.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.

The ratings of the relatively many reviews have a wide range from below-average to very good (as of 2016).

81.29%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
