ali, 02 Aug 2017Notification led light in this phoneYou will not find the traditional LED multicolor dot on top of screen for notifications. The home button works as a LED notification when the phone is locked, but only with the standard red color. Works for any notification and to inform of battery fully charged.
kir4eto, 04 Aug 2017how to instal google play on nubia z17You have to root and use Mokee firmware with OpenGapps or any other firmware with OpenGapps. I tried to root and install OpenGapps with stock firmware (Chinese and international) with no success. With Mokee+OpenGapps you will only loose edge gestures and Nubia camera software, replaced for the Pixel camera software, but you will win battery life, more software updates, all translations and the clean Google layout.

Jagdish, 29 Aug 2017Best Snapdragon 835 device , camera superb , only we need international firmware ,I tryed the chinese and international firmware. Trash and trash. If you want this model you will need to use Mokee firmware.
The software is a pure trash. Bad translations, notifications with text out of the box (layout design problems) and to finish no Google Play native support. I was saved by an alt ROM from Mokee team. Now he is clean, with the standard Google design, super fast, good in battery performance (after the first week of learning, I have now from 1.5 to 2 days) and very stable.
The Nubia phone development team has excellent designers and engineers. But this team has a huge problem. The producer thinks the buyers are idiots. Therefore, the manufacturer cannot hire two developers to update the firmware. As a result, my phone z11, which was recently the flagship, still works on Android 6.0. Although Google has already released Android 8.0. Don't expect to get this firmware on z17. I'll remind you that the new firmwares is an opportunity to close the vulnerability. But the producer seems to think that their customers are willing to tolerate vulnerabilities and hacker attacks. For example, with the recent vulnerability in the WPA2 Protocol, which especially affected devices on Anroid 6.0. Is it possible with this approach to recommend the use of the Nubia phones for business? I doubt very much. It's a shame.
How was the software for this device? I know the hardware is almost unbeatable if you compare to other phone. How the Android OS for this device if you upgrade the OS? Will it have bugged like most china phone?
I wonder why, why Nubia you remove sd card and 3.5 mm jack? If this is an upgrade to z11 which i have...you should not remove the basic of the phones!!! Why did't you use the same high sim slot???
No 3.5 jack
No radio rds
No sd card slot (my Z7max dual sim + dedicated micro sd)
No 2560x1440p (2014 Z7 had it!)
So it is using the same screen as my Z7max from 2014 and have none of the above this is a no go.
People get things for granted, unless they drop the phone's price to half they're not going to sell as many.
I made a purchase of the waterproof model and would like to know if it is IP67 or IP68. I do not find on the manufacturer's website the specifications of the Z17 waterproof. I had a Sony Z2 waterproof and liked it so much because I walked in with it in the pool, out in the sea and never happened problem.

R0tten, 17 Aug 2017Not overpriced but, that price you said is only for 6GB of RAM. 629.99 is for 8GB RAM. OP5's p... moreIts not all about the RAM. No phone still doesnt even utilize 4GB, so calm down
