Like we already said, the ZTE Nubia My Prague isn’t a new offer, but it has proven quite elusive up until now, even for a ZTE. It is, undoubtedly, a mid-range offer, but with a premium design and fashionable exterior. It comes from the Nubia sub-brand and is thus designed and built according high-end standards. This Nubia approach really shines through.
The Nubia My Prague looks stunning with a thin and sharp body, only 5.5mm thick and quite light at 140 grams. It simply looks good, which is typical for most Nubia devices, yet it is not quite like other recent offers from the family, like the Z9 and the scaled-down Z9 mini. The typical red color accents and round circular home button are all accounted for, so is the shape, although My Prague seems to have even sharper and more defined lines than the Z9, yet the black color is gone and instead replaced with a two-accent body in white and silver or gold and silver. This is actually quite similar to the Blade D6 and its dual-color approach, so design-wise the Nubia My Prague seems to have taken a lot of design cues from both the high-end Z models and the mid-range Blade ones.
Still, like we said, it is the phone's premium nature that seems to stick out. Not only does it feel nice and solid in the hand, but a quick look at its 5.2-inch display leaves no doubt about its high-born provenance. The sharp and vivid picture comes courtesy of a FullHD AMOLED display, which is definitely a step up from the typical 720p IPS in other ZTE mid-rangers, like the Blade D6.
And by nature, the Nubia My Prague is indeed a mid-range offer, proving yet again that budget doesn't have to equate to ugly. Under the hood, there is a Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615, which is currently the proverbial mid-range SoC to have. Other than that, however, ZTE has really tried hard to push the Prague as close as possible to flagship territory.
Besides the already mentioned stunning screen, the phone also comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage for the basic white/silver model and a quite respectable 3GB of RAM and 64GB of space for the premium white/gold one. A microSD card slot is also thrown in the mix. The camera setup is also quite impressive with a 13MP main shooter and an 8MP one on the front.
As for connectivity, the Nubia My Prague definitely has you covered. It offers two SIM slots with dual-standby, as well as LTE connectivity with Cat. 4 speeds of up to 150 Mbps. Local connectivity includes Wi-Fi N, which might not be a high-end a/c model, but is still dual-band. Also A-GPS, GLONASS and Bluetooth v4.0.
On the software side of things, the ZTE Nubia My Prague boots the OEM's own Nubia UI 3.0. It is actually the one based on Android 5.0 Lollipop, rather than 4.4, as both flavors do oddly exist. It is the same software that that the Nubia Z9 uses and it is quite feature-packed and pleasant to use. The UI is minimalist and definitely has a chard of its own, just like the phone itself.
All things considered, the ZTE Nubia My Prague has a new and exciting place of its own in ZTE's current lineup. If you are looking for a style and premium quality, but the Z9 price tag doesn’t quite agree with you, nor does the Blade V6's exterior then the Nubia My Prague might be a perfect option.
