High-end Nubia 5 takes ZTE to new heights

 

ZTE aims for a top-tier smartphone with the unlocked Nubia 5, and mostly hits its target.

The competitively priced ; has a polished design, a sharp camera, and a crisp 1080p screen.

Although it doesn't have LTE, the ZTE Nubia 5's impressive specs and reliable performance make it a great value for an unlocked, high-end phone.

ZTE Nubia 5 (Unlocked)

 

The ZTE Nubia 5 is an affordable, well-built, and well-equipped unlocked Android phone, but its half-baked Android skin really holds it back.

Big, beautiful 1080p display. Thin, light, and solidly built. Relatively affordable and unlocked.

Buggy, overwrought software. No LTE.

ZTE Nubia 5 review

 

A solid set of specs and features taken to their logical conclusion and sold for a good price - is that enough to make a sale?

After spending over a week with the device, we think ZTE has put together a pretty impressive package at $450 unlocked for the Nubia 5. The build quality and materials on offer are higher than the price point, and while the design is simple it is...
