Reviews for the ZTE Nubia Z20

Nubia Z20 Review: A New Dual-Display, Snapdragon 855+, Incredible Design
Source: Igeekphone English
For the Nubia Z20, in addition to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus platform, in terms of performance, the photo is also closely followed by the trend to join the 48 Megapixel and three-photo configuration, in the final performance It is also remarkable. I think the biggest improvement of this phone is the continuation of the ultimate pursuit of mobile video in the Nubia Z series. In the past few years, the entire mobile phone market has spent more and more energy on taking pictures. As the masterpiece of Nubia, the Z20 is just the beginning.
