Speed applications rate it at 2.1 not 2.3. Updating via over the air if you do not know chinese is a bad dream. Several times the UI filed forcing me to reset phone to factory default. Data speeds are poor. Similar to 14.4 dial up if at all. USB debugging will not connect to Win7/64bit. Every boot up of phone results in applications being upgraded. NX503A_Z0_CN_ASPPL1DD14F122 Android version 4.22. Kernal 3.4.0-gff584c0 Model NX503A Boot screens all chinese. Web help so far no english step by step update information for over the air use of update.zip is found by me. :( I love the camera software and the sound music though.

> In reply to omgitsdesmond @ 2014-03-25 20:21 from Mfx6 - click to readI have it for few months already and that was the only concern I had buying it. Then I found out few reviews that stated it uses some new screen technology which uses much less energy. Fortunately, it is true. This phone can hold up to a day of really hardcore usage, with custom Launcher used over standard UI, 3G and WiFi both ON, often browsing and ocassional gaming and music. Mediocre usage makes it last for 2 days with no problem at all.

Just got my z5s from china. Great phone! Its working great! Got an update for the Rom and trying to install it.
Battery life is very good (Lasted me for a whole day in medium use).
It has full gapps support and hadn't had any problems using them.

I'll give some quick review as I just bought this phone from JD.com.

First, the material.
ZTE Nubia Z5s uses plastic material shiny finish with metal bordering the phone body. Weirdly when the phone on heavy use, this metal border become very hot.
Second, the UI.
The UI installed in the phone is very bad, no Google Play and not feature rich.
Third, Camera testing.
For outdoor shooting with adequate light, the camera was superb but at night, it was the opposite. Almost can't capture anything without light. I don't know if this are caused by the UI or hardware defect.
Fourth, performance.
Overall this phone runs smooth almost lag free and without any sign of throttling. The Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2,15 Ghz.
Fifth, battery life.
This is the one that impress me the most. Like one said, do not judge the book by the cover. The 2,300 mAh battery can hold you for 1 days and half after heavy use of browsing, light games, several calls with 3G on.

2300mAh is just way too small for such spec, they should have at least 3000mAh

gsmarena wrongly states this phone sports an IGZO display. the display is CGS type, NM2 technology, according to the official site http://www.nubia.cn/z5slte.html
CGS is even better than IGZO or LTPS
this means less power consumption, better image quality, lighter battery
