Riona, 12 Nov 2014Asked a Chinese friend to buy it online for me 2 months ago. Rooted it, installed Google Play... moreGood honest review, I'd get it as only mobile with dual sim and hdmi out but very pricey is a concern considering problems you mentioned,. thanks again :)
Its not perfect but was enjoying my phone until my dual sim is only reading one sim card all of a sudden. I tried everything I could think of. Post something on XDA "http://forum.xda-developers.com/general/xda-assist/zte-nubia-x6-dual-sim-problem-t3168552". Can anyone help me?

Then connect(in USB) your phone to PC, Hi-suite mode. After that wait for few minutes. It will do automatically.

Thanks for your review, been wanting this phone for a long time but now I'm may have second thoughts or purchase one (hope for the best) and wait for another 6.4" phone with better specs and performance.
Dino, 15 Sep 2014Please tell me,are pictures with rear camera perfect or not?Asked a Chinese friend to buy it online for me 2 months ago. Rooted it, installed Google Play (gapps) and removed all ZTE bloatwares, and just installed my apps like Greenify, etc. to help with battery. Here are some comments:
LTE/4G: Tested working in Taiwan and Singapore (both sim slots); though only 1 sim can be active at any time. Signal reception (including Wifi) is acceptable though it is not the best.
Camera: Average only, Samsung Note 3 definitely better, iPhone 6/6+ way, way better, especially in low lights than this, ZTE still has a long, long way to catch up in this area.
Screen: Good, acceptable but colors not as good as Note 3 (personal preference). However brightness control range is not as wide compared to LG G-Flex or Note 3 (testing using built-in control and Lux app).
Battery: Not bad but not so good either for a 4250mAh battery. Main culprit I suspect is the screen sucking too much juice. I have to use a few apps to kill background services, etc. but mostly it can last a day for me (12hrs - 16hrs) though I expected much more.
GPS: A bit slower and less accurate compared to LG G-Flex and Note 3 (running Waze).
Built Quality: Good BUT a tiny screw on the left side dropped out! Now I got a hole on a brand new phone... Still some way to go for ZTE to improve on this.
Size: I've used Note, Note 2 and Note 3 & LG G-Flex so this is expected. 6.4" is not too big for me and it fits into my back pocket nicely. In fact this is 1 of the main reasons I got this phone!
Last but not least there's some quirks that changes setting that I can't seem to explain. Eg. I set phone to go Sleep profile from 23:00 - 07:00 and it works. However after I turn off it still goes to silent (but not Sleep profile)! Weird! Sometimes Sync will be turned off by itself also. I only set my phone to read from Google contact list but this phone sometimes will show Skype contact list by itself! Still trying to figure out what's happening.
Conclusion: You need to root the phone to get Google Play, Google apps, etc. If you are not comfortable with this then don't get this phone. Also camera performance is not as good and it's bugging me as I need to carry another phone to take good pics, another major let down. Now I'm looking to replace it with another better dual sim, probably the branded ones from LG, Sony or Samsung, etc. No doubt the Chinese can put all the highest specs hardware but the execution and finesse is still 1 or 2 generations behind the competitors.
Does this phone have micro sd slot or is it a typo in the specifications?... (Some other web pages says it doesn't have.)
Sexybomber, 28 Jun 2014it's not even anywhere in china. only fake / knock-offs show up online. I went to all their of... moreIt's available. But you can't walk into the store and buy it. You need to leave your name and go on a waiting list, but you won't have much luck now that they are stopping production. Better to buy z7 unless you want to try taobao but the sellers don't even have stock.
