Reviews for the ZTE Nubia Z17

ZTE Nubia Z17 review
Source: GSM Arena English
There are a few different ways to look at the Nubia Z17, but it definitely is a worthy addition to the 2017 flagship club. With a price tag south of the $500 mark, just the right bit cheaper than the OnePlus 5, the Nubia Z17 is probably the most affordable package with a Snapdragon 835 under the hood. This could've been calculated or coincidental, but ZTE didn't stop there and the phone deserves some credit for trying to over-deliver in terms of audio and imaging too.

5.5":

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.


ZTE:

ZTE is short for Zhong Xing Telecommunication Equipment Company Limited, which was founded in China in 1985. The product range includes, for example, USB sticks, routers, smartphones and tablets.

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


90%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
