Reviews for the ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini

80% Nubia Z17 Mini review – another dual camera smartphone
Source: Gogi.in English
The Nubia Z17 Mini is a good handset, good performance, above average camera and battery life is pretty decent. Dual camera portrait mode was not that happening. Now this handset is priced at Rs. 19,999 would have been great if it was priced at under Rs. 15K.

67% Nubia Z11 Mini Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Nubia Z11 Mini is the best camera phone you can buy in the sub-20K smartphone category. Period. Further, the good design, commendable display and the decent battery life add to the overall experience. However, its performance is a bummer. If you’re willing to compromise performance for a good camera, then go for the Nubia Z11 Mini. If you want a better overall performer, though, the Redmi Note 3 and LeEco Le 2 are better options.

70% ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini review: Features good hardware but kills it with outdated software
Source: Tech2.in.com English
What I liked about the Z11 Mini was its design and that camera. What I did not like was the battery life and the outdated Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software. And it is a tough market out there with a lot of choices in the budget smartphone range. The ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini priced at Rs 12,999, does not stand a chance against the mighty Moto G4 Plus even though its priced higher at Rs 14,999. The same can be said about the current king of the ring, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, which is priced Rs 11,999, but packs in better hardware and a bigger battery.

Nubia Z11 Mini Review - Let down by an older OS
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Specification wise, the ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini at Rs 12,999 is a decent device, though not the best option. It fulfills what it promises such as a good looking phone with good chipset and camera. But it's the few small chinks in its armour that lets it down. Its biggest drawback is its older Android OS which makes it case very weak. Nubia thus should release the Android Marshmallow atleast if not Android Nougat but it has to act fast if it wants to make the Z11 Mini a mighty smartphone in the sub-Rs 15,000 segment.

Nubia Z11 mini Review: Good looking camera phone, a bit overpriced
Source: Fone Arena English
Overall, we feel that the Nubia Z11 mini is definitely a good looking, well-built device from ZTE’s subrand Nubia. The two cameras are decent, but lacks the consistency sometimes. The combination of Snapdragon 617 and 3GB of RAM is average. The phone doesn’t heat much in heavy duty tasks too and we were pleasantly surprised to see that. The phone supports USB OTG for good, but then it lacks the essential fast charging.

Nubia Z11 mini S VS Xiaomi MI5S Design, Antutu, Camera, Battery Review(With Coupon)
Source: Yugatech English
Nubia Z11 Mini S and Xiaomi MI5S can have nice similarity in camera, design, and battery, but in terms of hardware, Xiaomi MI5S can win over Nubia Z11 Mini not only in terms of antutu. But considering the price, Nubia Z11 Mini S RAM 4GB ROM 64GB version sells at 1499 yuan, $250, RAM 4GB ROM 128GB black golden advanced version at 1899 yuan, $316, but Xiaomi MI5S RAM 3GB ROM 64GB at 1999 yuan, $330, and RAM 4GB ROM 128GB version at 2299 yuan, $383. Therefore, if you don’t pursue too high-end performance, Nubia Z11 Mini S is enough to use, but you are a game lover, we highly recommend choosing Xiaomi MI5S.

80% Nubia Z11 Mini review: Good camera phone at affordable price
Source: Gadget Show English
The Nubia Z11 Mini is a really good attempt to gain some foothold in the burgeoning Indian smartphone market. At a price tag of Rs 14,500, we'd say that it's definitely a value for money device if you're looking for a camera-centric smartphone in that kind of budget. Its downers include a dated operating system and uncertainty about OS updates.

80% Nubia Z11 Mini review: Now, that is a good camera
Source: The Indian Express English
At this price, the Nubia Z11 Mini offers a great camera and decent overall performance. Yes, the phone has its minor issues but nothing you can’t really live with. The only asterisk on top is whether the company has the conviction to see this phone through to success.
