Nubia Z9 Mini review: A good smartphone suffered by mediocre performance


Design Nubia Z9 Mini manages to grab your attention with its design and looks. The front of the smartphone has a 5 inch display with minimal bezels and three touch capacitive buttons at the bottom, which reflects bright red color

Premium design, crisp and bright full HD display, good camera performance, acceptable battery back-up

buggy UI, frequent lags, average multitasking performance, rear panel easily catches scratches

Nubia Z9 Mini packs an excellent full HD display, a feature rich camera that performs well and an acceptable battery back-up. However, it is the slow processor and poor UI performance which makes the smartphone lose the game in mid-segment category.

Nubia Z9 Mini Review: A Mid-Range Smartphone With a Camera That Stands Out


Great rear camera ; Attractive looks ; Decent pricing

Minor software issues ; Call quality is average

The Nubia Z9 Mini's camera performance left us pleasantly surprised. We would recommend this phone to anyone looking for a great camera in a smartphone that costs less than Rs. 20,000. Do bear in mind that the ZTE still needs to work on a few kinks in...
