80% Nubia Z11 mini S Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Z11 mini S has all the makings of a good smartphone, and after spending little more than a week with it, most of these translate well in the real world. Nubia has done a great job in terms of build quality and aesthetics, and this phone is well equipped with plenty of storage and a good processor. Both cameras do a good job in most lighting conditions, and battery life is solid too. There are areas where this phone could have been better, such as faster charging, the inclusion of NFC, and a more polished Android skin.

75% ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini S review: Great 23MP camera and premium construction at Rs 16,999
Source: Tech2 English
The ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini S is a great smartphone, that’s stuck with unfinished software; something that the company can work on and fix. It features the perfect hardware combination and I have no complaints regarding its Rs 16,999 price tag because it offers a lot more than the competition. There’s a capable 23MP camera, great battery life and a premium looking design, one that even gives the Asus Zenfone 3 (5.2-inch model) a run for its money.

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.
