I've been using the 8/128 for about a month now and I'm more that delighted with it.
Yes, the software has stayed (and will probably stay) on Android 7.1.1. But, as long as they update the security patches, I'm ok with it, since the phone works like a charm. Great CPU and GPU, more than enough memory, more than enough storage, great cameras. etc.
On the latest official firmware, battery is amazingly well optimized, and the 3100 mAh, which may seem too low, offer enough juice for the day, and more. I charge the phone overnight and unplug it at around 7:30. Then I keep it off the battery during the whole day, and at home, I use it as a modem via tethering. and I go to bed with 30-35% battery.
All in all, a great option these days. Now that Z18 is out, you can find this even at Â€300 (that's what I paid for it) and you get a high-end phone. It's not using the latest Qualcomm flagship, but the difference is very little.
Very dissapointed because of the soft development I mean Rom's tehy don't actualize at all new devices get Oreo 8.1 this nice product stock at Nougat 7.1.1 ! Also Huawei get Pie very soon so ZTE they make good phones but lack of soft development ! Not buying from ZTE soon !
i love this phone's specs and price.
waiting to buy Z18 which will be unveiled this month hopefully.
AnonD-739393, 22 Feb 2018The problem is the battery, it is too small for all these powerful hardwares inside!That's why it have quick charge 4
AnonD-720903, 05 Jan 2018say no to zte phone because of their slow updates software and laginess.i have to own this phone
one fine day i surely will
Those ugly phones with notches really need to learn from ZTE. Ah, the Nubia phones are always beautiful.
The problem is the battery, it is too small for all these powerful hardwares inside!
This is the best phone that I used, so far. Everythings goes smooth and the snapdragron 835 + 8G ram is hugh!!!
If this phone did not remove the basics of the hardware of Nubia z11, then i must buy this phone. WHY and WHY? you remove the 3.5 jack, hybrid sim slot, IR blaster and more battery power at least 4,000mAh, and perhaps add a wireless charging, then even if this cost $600 i will surely buy this phone since i have the z11 at the moment.
Only problem with Zte specially Nubia phones are android updates, still stuck with Nubia Z11 with Android 6 with security patch of 5 December 2016.
Ive got 2 ZTE Nubia phones.. Z11 and M2, and they are juz awesome and a big bang for your money...
