ZTE is among the top five smartphone manufacturers in China. The company entered India last year with powerful devices priced aggressively to take on the competition. However, it didn't rise to much prominence thanks to tough competition from brands like Xiaomi, Asus, and Motorola. We reviewed one of its phones, the ZTE V5 (Review | Pictures), and despite packing powerful hardware, we found that its middling software held it back.

Nubia Z9 mini Summary

ZTE's premium range of smartphones - Nubia - series has a new entrant Nubia Z9 Mini. It is a scaled down version of the flagship Nubia Z9. This phone with a 5-inch screen has a really great 16-megapixel rear camera and an equally competent front one. However, ZTE has not managed to completely solve the issues it had earlier with the Nubia UI and the latest version has some problems as well. Users willing to look past that problem should be served well by the Nubia Z9 Mini.
